I’m driven by the overwhelming number of holiday-themed blog link parties coming up next month.  For those who know me, I can’t say no to a good party.

Problem is, I have a basement filled with bins and bins of holiday decorations.  I don’t need more.
Must. Stop. Shopping.

What I need to do is stay far, far away from Home Goods and Target during the holidays … and now I can add Dollar Tree and the Salvation Army  to that  list. Oh, and all those catalogs crammed into my mailbox need to go straight to recycle.

Truth be told, I have a bit of a problem when it comes to decorating for the holidays.  No surface goes untouched.

And yes, that’s the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows DVD sitting center stage. It’s an early Christmas present to me!

Yeah, I have a bit of a problem when it comes to Harry Potter too. But that’s fodder for a whole other blog …


  1. I’m starting to get on the xmas kick myself. I think I’m going to decorate in ALL DYI this year. I’ve got a bunch of ideas to start this weekend….watch out tree!!! lol

  2. You’ve got lovely stuff :) Can’t wait to see your holiday decors. Btw, thanks for the sweet comment about Roeshel’s post. Yes, she’s a great lady to work with, very supportive of her fellow bloggers.

  3. Don’t I know it! Some how I always seems to think I am going to have a place to put all of my decorations, but strangely, my house doesn’t get any bigger from year to year.

  4. Simply desire to say your article is as surprising. The clarity in your post is Simply great and i can assume you’re an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission allow me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please carry on the rewarding work.
