Holiday Decorating

Well it's that time of year again when  Halloween is over and Christmas is just around the corner.  I love decorating for Christmas and while I try (somewhat) not to go overboard, I do have more than six large bins dedicated to my Christmas things.  I actually put away the every day pictures and ornaments to make room for them.

I am that much more excited to decorate this year since we are in a new home and out of that hovel of a basement. My husband may be less grinch-like this year and more amenable to hanging up my garlands. One can only hope.

Of course, that means I am a sucker for Christmas decorations and when I got an email regarding Hallmark's seasonal line, I thought I'd share some of my favourites with you.

Christmas Mugs are an especial favourite of mine.  I have been known to keep my Christmas mugs out way past the holiday season.

This, I thought was particularly cute. What great way to countdown to christmas in this digital age.

It's Adorable.  Need I say more?

I also really love decorations that play music. Not the non-stop kind of music but ones that you can turn off if you need a break from little fingers pushing buttons. ;) I also love snowmen so this Snowman Band is just perfect!

These are just a few of the things available through Hallmark but they are some of my favourites!

Hey, how about sharing a photo of your favourite holiday ornament with me?    Which one has particular meaning for you and why?  Send me your photo and I will not only post it but also a link to your blog.  Photos to be in by December 2nd. 

***disclosure note - this was not a sponsored post.  I was sent a holiday email via Hallmark so I have permission in sharing their images.  I posted because I truly love holiday decorations.  I was not compensated in anyway for doing so.****


  1. I love decorating for Christmas too! I could do some serious damage shopping this time of year because I see so many cute things and I want them all!!

    Last year, I bought a huge Christmas village and it was so much fun to put together with the kids! Can't wait to do it again this year!

  2. I love holiday decorating too! :-) Those are adorable! My dad used to have a set of mugs with a big dipper and two little dippers - one for for my brother and I (my sister wasn't born yet), and we loved to have hot chocolate with him in it! It was so very special for us. I'm glad to see there are more!

  3. I love the Holiday season, too! It's about time to pull out my pottery Snow Man Mugs that I use until the middle of February. We use them for hot chocolate:)
