The Start of Christmas Decorating

We have had some really unusual weather this weekend!  School was even cancelled for my kids today (Yay!).  I put on my furry boots this morning and took a few pictures of how beautiful everything looks.  Yes, I'm weird, I LOVE Winter weather. 
We have had nothing but ice and a small amount of snow.  
The cotton across the street was stripped last week, but the ice on the plants makes it look like the cotton is still on the plants.  So Pretty!
This cold weather, and having to stay inside, put me in the mood to start decorating for Christmas!
In keeping with the cold weather theme, I started in our mudroom, and did snowman/winter themed decorating.
I have quite a few snowmen, and decided to group them together, and add a few other wintry things to the arrangement.
I had to bring this snowman front and center so you could see it better.  A friend of mine made it, and gave it to me for Christmas.  It's made on a wine glass!  Such a great idea!  It already has its' own pedestal.
I put a few Christmas ornaments in my lantern, and also added some snowflakes.
For the final touch, I added a snowman banner that another sweet friend gave me for Christmas last year. (I have some great friends)
Now when you walk in our back door, this is what greets you.  
Have you started decorating for Christmas, or do you wait until after Thanksgiving?  I just couldn't wait any longer.  Especially with the great Winter weather we are having!
Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Shelly,
      I have never thought about that, but you are right! I think I might do that this year. Such a great idea. Thanks for hosting!
