Their done, I'm just getting started.

Carol and Timmothy are done decorating the house and it looks excellent. Carol's Christmas mug collection (a very small section shown above) is out. The tree and everything else is in it's place where it will decorate the house until what ever weekend follows New Years Day.

I, however have just gotten started at the office. At least I got the tree up.

In the interest of full disclosure the tree is always up and the hearts are always on it. Even the mouse is a permanent fixture so all I really did was throw some lights on the tree and add the Christmas mug.  Normally I bring in several totes of stuff but this year I'm a bit concerned about clutter as the art gallery keeps growing with works from our resident artist (Timmothy N. Timm).

Hi Bob,  It takes a certain amount of organization to be ready to get Christmas decorations up already.   We typically wait until closer to Christmas for our finishing touches.

That looks like a very festive decor, they did a great job and it will be enjoyed all month long.

I enjoy seeing how other people decorate for the holidays. My decorating style is of the less-is-more style. A tree, a few decorations, put up a week or so before Christmas. It's all good!

I'm pretty sure I won't be done for a week or two yet Bob Crane so in the end we will get it done at the same time. 😃

Endre Barath, Jr. I am starting to wonder how big of a bird Carol purchased this year as I'm not getting any indication that the end is in sight.

The spirit is stong in the Timm house Michael Jacobs . I love both Christmas and Easter but honestly Easter RULES. A lot of "saviors" have been born but only ONE has risen from the dead.

Festive is a good word Brian England as I do smile every time I enter our home and see all the decorations.

What I like best about your method Kat Palmiotti is the less you put up the less you have to take down.

Good morning Bob. Keep the Timmothy displays and you will have less to do the weekend after the New Year Look at the positive. Enjoy your day..

Good morning, Bob... my home is also done... my cat tree is up; my delft ornament tree is up. No display of holiday mugs, however... I just simply use them all month long.

That is good advice Wayne Martin . I also figure what they put up they can take down.

Nina Hollander, Broker I believe you have shared a picture of the cat tree in the past, I was thinking it was really cool. As far as the mugs go... I'm thinking I'm pretty lucky she is happy with .99 mugs from the thrift store as opposed to Christmas jewelery. 😊

I know I will get a little more done yet Grant Schneider but I need to study what I've got and what will go up tastefully.

Hi Bob,
I love that your tree is up all year with hearts.  I left my nativity up for an entire year once and loved it.

Chef Dolores put our wreath on the front door this morning. That was the first of our holiday decorations.

hank you Carol Williams . The original idea was to change it up with different holidays but I really like the hearts on the tree so they are staying put year around.

Roy Kelley  we have wreaths on the inside of our doors but have yet to do any exterior decorating other than a projector that projects one (non-moving) image on the wall.
