Getting My Holly Jolly Started!

So here it is December 4th and I am just getting the decorations started.
Actually I started decorating on Tuesday and wouldn't you know it Wee Petal ,Baby Giraffe...and me...all get a nasty stomach bug. We are all much better today and my house got the SUPER DE-GERMIFYIN' crazy clean last night(am I the only one that needs to mop,bleach,and scald all of the bedding after group sickness happens?).
Only prob is that puts me 3 days behind on my decorating schedule.

Behind the plasma is an odd little "can't decide if I like it or not architectural nook". I decided to fill it with part of my vintage Christmas record collection.We do have a turntable...and oh yeah...these records will get some play time during the holly-daze.

Among the more obvious Bing and Frank covers I really j'ador the "generic 50;s and 60' compilations for the amazing vintage graphics.

Trimming a tree can often times be a bit of a mess.

Who knew the dining room would see this amount of mess all week.You better believe that Hawaiian X-mas album is gonna get some serious turntable time!

The tree in its kitschy splendor.
This marks the 11th year we have spent with this family heirloom. You might note I changed up the ornie scheme this year.I figured the old Pagoda needed a more elegant tree to balance out her rat pack cool,but the new Pagoda needed a much more liberal dose of rat pack and kitsch to up her coolio vibe.


Hmmm....how bout' a gin-soaked punk rock elf complete with Creepers?

Or perhaps a groovy Santa Girl.

Ah me... and sooooo much more to do!

I love it!! Absolutely love :) And I have to admit that I really do like the niche behind the tv, how perfect for your record collection.
I have your box ready to go out on Monday when I put on my brave face and venture into the post office with the crazies! Lol, that's what I call them during holiday season.
By the way, I'm pretty much in love with those metal chairs.

I like the spot light on your aluminum tree. I won a color wheel light at an auction a few yrs. ago, lots of competition for it. I now need an aluminum tree for it! But, a spot light would be more serene.
