normally i like to wait until the start of december to break out the christmas decorations and put up the tree. this year, however, i'm taking the a little bit here, a little bit there approach, in hopes that decorating is less chaotic (how many ornaments did we break last year???) and also to savor the act just a little bit more. 

so, yesterday we broke out the bins and boxes and, despite the fact that it was warm enough to have the doors open, tuned into the pandora christmas station. we sorted and stacked and set things up here and there. 
our collection of christmas decor has evolved over the years to include mostly vintage, thrifted items. the tackier the better--i collect puffy wreaths, stuffed trees and hard plastic, lighted christmas figures. i love little handmade decorations like the tiny santas pictured above, which i strung up over hudson's bed at his request. i've got a mountain of old tinsel piled up in wait of the tree. and a heap of other glittery, gaudy stuff waiting to be put out. 

so in that case, more to come!
