From the Stacks: Ghost of Christmas Past

With just over a week to go, are you still decorating? I am still adding bits here and there and finding inspiration in these images from Christmas past. This tangerine Christmas is from 2001 and looks as current now as it did then. Hope you have a great weekend.

I think I'm done...decorating that is. A few more gifts and wrapping, and then the festivities are beginning today. What a fun season of the year!

Love the first image with the topiaries decorated with oranges, the room just glows!

Have a wonderful holiday! Janell

I love the equestrian Christmas photo and the last one from 2001 as well. Funny how something from 2001 can still seem current.

Gotta love the older magazines. The good ones always remain so, don't they?

To lovely. I wish I had your treasure trove of old issues. PF makes me recycle most of them. I'm so far behind on the wrapping thing.

I don't think the decorating is ever finished until it is put away! Have a happy and festive weekend... xv

Does it get more classic & chic than a pair of tangerine & moss topiaries on a mantel dahhling? I think not! trés chic!

Beautiful images, Michele.
I love this series. Brings back so many memories. Amazing how things seem to come back around ten years later.
Have a nice weekend.

I wish I owned the room with the huge baskets of greenery. Good inspiration for one who doesn't stop decorating until the DAY!! A little touch here, a little change there.
