Not the Season I expected

It is another strange Christmas season in our world!

Last year we were out of town with the pipeliners job until the 23rd of December.
The only decorating that I got done was my little table top tree that lit up our camper.

By the glow of those lights I spent many nights looking at pictures of my favorites blog pages.
The beautifully decorated rooms that they shared for all of us to admire.
I smiled as I imagined how I would use this idea or that idea in my home for next years holiday season.

 Then we sold the house in town.

Before the move I sold quite a few of my Christmas decorations.
They wouldn't look quite right at the farmhouse.

I did save a few.
( Love my little putz house)

(A few Christmas figurines I bought last year while out of town.)

Then a month ago we decided to buy the new house.
My mind sure hasn't been on decorating the farmhouse for Christmas.

It has been on all of the things we need to get done for the move.

On top of that the pipeliner got called out of state for another job.
He won't be home until Christmas Eve!

I have been busy, busy filling  some big orders for my home made noodles.


The last batch gets delivered tomorrow!

The best part of the season so far has been little mans first trip to visit Santa.


He was just amazed at the man in the red suit!

So again I have my spent my nights looking at my favorites blog pages.
Admiring your lovingly decorated holiday homes.
Dreaming about how my new home will look next Christmas season!

(Another sneak peek of the new house)

Oh boy, I can hardly wait!

  1. We barely have space for a tree in our living room. The house was built in the 30's for a couple without kids, so there is no storage, wall space etc. My kitchen is all cabinets, with one wall for my aprons. That's about it. We really cut down on our decor.

    1. These old farmhouses just don't have any storage. We have one closet. I love the place, just not the no space!

  2. This isn't the season I was expecting either. I too look at those blogs and dream, well next year...I guess that is the hope anyway. Can't wait to see the new house - will keep watching.

  5. That room looks ripe for Christmas decorating!! Love the wood floors & fireplace. Next year's Christmas will be here quicker than you think (look how fast this year's Christmas arrived!), and you'll have such fun setting it all up for Christmas. Exciting times. Cute photo of your little grandson ;) Wendy x
