Never too early to start planning for Christmas

I mentioned the other day that Christmas is only five months away. That is true, but we have to be ready by the first of December and the countdown has begun for me. I have a lot of things on my "punch list" as we used to call incomplete items at my workplace. While visiting a local Goodwill, I spotted these nice needlepoint, handmade Christmas pillows. I do needlepoint (not too good, I might add), but I love the handiwork and claimed these three immediately. I checked the label of the designer but had NEVER heard of her. I sent a photo to my cousin Patty knowing she would love them too and her first response was "did you Google and find out anything about them". NO was my reply, I was just happy to find these Christmas gems. She checked for me and furnished the site for me to check out. Laura Megroz - value of each is a whopping $79.00. Of course, I only paid $2.50 each - what a deal of the month? I could not believe my good fortune. You can be assured that I will Google again and again on future purchases. Can't you just picture these three on a sofa waiting to greet holiday guests?


  1. Christmas in July, as I started reading your blog a few months ago I am curious to know ~ why do you start so early....I would love to put my Byers Chouce Caroloers out now!!!

  2. I do a lot of decorating. By starting around this time of the year, it gives me ample time to go through my huge stash of stuff to use and believe me, I have a LOT OF STUFF. We bloggers should get together and host an on-line auction among ourselves. What stuff we all could get rid of and swap some stuff too. Gayle has a collection of the Byers Carolers - I've never purchased one.

  3. I don't know if I can start thinking about Christmas yet. My home is usually on a local home tour, and can't start thinking about it late October, and by Christmas I am so done! Good for you though. Thanks, too for stopping by my blog!


  4. You better be glad I wasn't along on that shopping trip...we would have been fighting over those pillows...excellent find!

  5. Love these pillows - they can always find a home down my way if you ever get tired of them! Regarding planning ahead.... I think it's a wonderful idea! I've already begun picking up gifts (mainly for Easton of course). It's never too early to plan!
