It's not that I want to upset anyone out there . . . I know that a great many of you drop in here for a quick respite from your day's hectic activities. Maybe a little something to inspire your own creativity. Or to see a little glimpse behind the scenes here at SMW Design. But. Seriously. Not that you need to panic. But. It's like 102 days until Christmas.
Now, long time readers of my little missives will know that I'm a huge fan of the holidays. That I start planning each year's holiday decorations months in advance. (and, yes - I have a few minor sketches of this year's celebrations at the house.)
But, while relaxing on the sofa last evening (after watching the season finale of True Blood), I saw it. Almost in its entirety. The colour story. The greenery. And even part of the menu for one of the cocktail parties at the house. I can't wait to get started . . .
And. While we're on the topic of the upcoming holidays - just because we had SO much fun last year. Let's have our "Holiday Decorating Contest" again this year. No reason to yabber on about prizes or judges at this point. Just sending out the information in advance. Get those thinking caps on.
If you need some inspiration - here's a little peek of Holidays past from here at the house . . .
