It's feelin' like May.

Okay, I know I'm a little out of sync. I am, in fact, very much aware of the season -what with the rainy days, mellow sunshine and abundant blooms around our yard. Trust me, they haven't escaped my notice!

I'm just feelin' a little Christmassy.

Christmas like.

All warm and fuzzy as I mosey about in my flippy-flops.

The reason for all this seasonal mix up is the fact that I'm thinking up ideas for my holiday show. It's a one-woman operation around here (as far as my creations go) and I want to get a head start on ideas so I'm not struggling so much right before the show. However, it is an interesting feat to research holiday trends, colors, etc. in the merry month of May!

Having said that, what colors, etc. bring Christmas to life for you? Feel free to's for research, after all!

Very pretty. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for your show... when is it? I am thinking to do one in Oct.; I make Christmas Stockings so I thought it would be a good fit. Our last few Christmases have been spent in the mountains with a Charlie Brown tree strung with one string of lights and a popcorn/cranberry strand... they have been wonderfully quiet and peaceful:)

LOL... totally understand this. It is almost time to break out a little Christmas music to get the ideas flowing! ;)

i love that the modern christmas can be ANY color... love the serenity of white or white and tan (think starfish on the sand), robin's egg blue and hot pink, black and white (seen it done beautifully), lime green and red, all 'hot colors' hot pink bright yellow, vibrant orange, lime green, teal blue, grape.... or traditional... hunter green and red, cranberry, gold and silver... ah! runs the gamut!

I agree with Patty: in colors work! I love purple and silver together... love "citrus" colors, vibrant choices... :-)
