November, a time to hunker down and wrap yourself up in your cozy life. Also? A time to start planning for the holidays. For you slackers it's a time to start Christmas shopping. I'm about 3/4 done.I got in the habit of getting an early start on it in 2008 because of the havoc Silver Bella caused on my schedule. This year I'm not even going but apparently the early shopping habit stuck. Plus we've scaled down our shopping to save money for a house. That takes the pressure off.
I thought I'd give you a preview of the new Farm Chicks Christmas book to get you in the spirit. I'm in love with it! It's decorating, cooking, gifts and packaging inspiration all in one place.
Serena even put a gift for you in the back. I love books that have surprises like that in them.
The book is full of vintage style and color! I'm just craving color these days. It might have something to do with living in this drab light deprived cottage. Whatever it is, my imagination is running wild with Christmas color scheme possibilities. I'd love to hear what your holiday decorating/color plans are. I know I won't have room for too much so the idea that I can be selective with my decorations is kind of exciting.
