Plans for the Holidays ~ 2017

My favorite time of the year is upon us and also my busy time. But it is always a joy scheduling my yearly holiday to-do's on my calendar. I look forward to putting up all my Christmas trees, picking up my poinsettias from Costco, booking my lunch at the Ayres Tea Room, going to the ballet with my daughter to see the Nutcracker and buying beautiful Christmas sweaters and accessories for the season. It is always a good time of the year....

To see previous post about my trees, read it here.

  1. Mrs. Shockley,
    What beautiful Christmas decor you have! My Christmas plans are: Go see the Nutcracker with my 7 and 1 year old daughters and my husband(family tradition), drive around and look at at Christmas lights, make Orange ornaments with my daughter that she will give to her piano teacher and ballet teacher, Christmas Eve candle light service at church, Christmas concert at a Seminary School here in PA. New this year: Custom stockings from Etsy and I am hoping to find a holiday sweater!

    1. Hello Mya,
      Thank you for the compliment! Love the idea about the homemade orange ornaments. Now are those orange slices? And custom stockings from Etsy. Don't you just love Etsy. Thank you for sharing your plans!
