simply Christmas: decor inspiration

It is Thanksgiving week in the US and we are very much looking forward to celebrating and enjoying time as a family. And I admit Christmas is on my mind. Last week the kids and I checked out Christmas books at the library (current favorite: The Little Drummer Boy). Frank Sinatra Christmas is playing on Pandora, and decorations will go up next week. 

We will reuse most of our decorative pieces. But I love the use of blue and natural wood in these photos. I hope to make time for a few projects (I adore the wooden dowel tree).

Have you started to decorate?
