Getting in the Christmas Dream

Recently, this magazine arrived at the Dream:

INSPIRATION!

How fun is that wreath?! I set out to do my own version and even took before pictures of my pile of items needed for the post I was planning about my citrus-with-a-Christmas-twist wreath:

It was a complete failure.  I’m certain if I allowed myself more time, it would have really come together.  However, time is not something I have a lot of these days.  So, the above “ingredients” became Thanksgiving table centerpieces…

… and I did a happy dance when an LL Bean box from Maine arrived on our doorstep with a simple, guaranteed Christmas-y feel decoration for our door…

Thank you, in-laws!  Whew.

Meanwhile, we did get these done this weekend… so early (for us):

It will feel so good to drop 120 of those bad boys in the blue box tomorrow.  CHECK off the Christmas to-do list!  We have the wonderment of a six-month old’s first Christmas to get to…

… and a few more decorations to put up!

How about you?  Get anything on your list accomplished yet?
