Wishing on a Christmas star in July

Notice the pretty Christmas button to the right?  This would be the project I mentioned last post.  I saw this opportunity and thought “Why not?”.  Can you imagine?  --a crew of Christmas elves arriving in Santa’s sleigh or Matthews van (sans red velvet and fur collars due to the Texas heat) and decking the place out?  Joy to the world!     

So I sent in my photos.  Just 5.  They wanted to see collections. We’ve got those a plenty. And a mantel.  Santa visits ours and fills the stockings every year.  Furniture pieces that can be decorated.  Do we have too much?  Windows.  Windex to the rescue.   And a clean and fresh place.  Lovey and I captured and relocated all the dust bunnies and pronounced the place pretty cheeky –or fresh.  Also wrote about some of our family Christmas traditions.  Now we wish upon a Christmas star that we will be chosen!.

We think we have good house decorating “bones”.  What do you think?

Here’s the 5 photos I submitted:

I wanted to send these photos too:

Remember (June post) the newly decorated, Holiday “altar” in the foyer?

I guess that’s it.
