usually the weekend of Thanksgiving
but this year
this week marks the first week of advent
but if not...( get the entry done that is)
my decorating is intentionally simplified this year
i'm using creamy whites
this antique silver platter is filled with a few vintage sheet music pieces
each year i really change things up
& just in case you were wondering
these last couple pictures are not of christmas decorating...
but just a few things i added that will blend well with the neutral wintry look i'm going for
some silvery white spray painted branches from the back yard
that i thought i'd just use during the fall , but love 'em so much
they're staying for Christmas!
