"Holiday Decorating Contest - 2013 . . . "

Last year's "Christmas Tree" winner - Steve Fuller.


Well, the holiday season is finally here again!  And since we had SO much fun last year - sharing images of our homes all decorated for the holidays - let's do it again.  For those of you who have been long-time readers, you'll know how MUCH I love decorating for the holidays.  The smell of fresh cedar.  The feel of pine sap on my fingers.  Maybe some holiday music on the stereo.  

I really want to see what y'all have been up to . . . So, I'm pleased to announce the fourth annual" Tartanscot Holiday Decorating Contest! "

There are four categories that you can enter :

1)  Christmas Tree ( lights. ornaments. creativity. )

2)  Dining Room ( it's one of the best times of the year to entertain.  Let's see that dining table! )

3)  Front Door  ( wreaths and garland and lights, oh my. )

4)  Holiday Pets  ( let's get Fluffy and Fido in the holiday spirit too! ) 

Last Year's "Dining Table" winner - Delores Arabian 

How to do it:

1)  Decorate your home and/or pets. 

2)  Take digital photos.

3)  Email your images (along with your name and address) to "HolidayContest@SMWDesign.com"

But, don't think it will just be me here - throwing darts at the wall to see who's going to win.   Tune in to meet our panel of Celebrity Judges - a collection of designers and writers from around the world.  

And it's not just for bragging rights - images of the winning entries will be posted here on Tartanscot during Christmas week - and I'll also be announcing our special prizes for the contest later in the week. 

Last year's "Front Door" winner - Gary Pitcock
