Happy Monday y’all! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving (Americans) weekend (everyone else). We here in Jenworld had a freaking awesome weekend that included turkey, decorating Jenworld for Christmas, and being with family and friends.
First off, taking care of some business, the winner of the Christmas gnome giveaway is Liz! Congratulations! If you didn’t win, fret not. Sue still has more gnomes in her Etsy shop, so click over and buy one (or more). If you’re looking to win a Christmas goody here, hold onto your hats because I’ll have another giveaway tomorrow!
Now that the holiday season is officially upon us, it’s time to organize the fourth annual Holiday Homes Tour.
Show us all how you decorate for the holidays at your domicile. Do you have a ginormous tree or a petite one or none at all? Do you have stockings hung by the chimney with care or are they hung on a bookshelf? Do you decorate with glitter and gilt or are you into pine cones and other items from nature? Do you decorate anything and everything or do you keep things simple and Zen?
This year, the big day is Wednesday, December 21. Last year’s was a lot of fun, so I hope a great many of you will participate this year.
All you have to do is:
- … leave a comment here by Monday, December 19 telling me that you are participating.
- Please, pretty please also leave your blog URL in the body of the comment so that I can easily cut and paste. (My spam filter will go nuts with all the URL’s, so if you don’t see your comment go up immediately, be patient.)
- If you also want to leave a short — one sentence or even just a phrase – description of your decorating style, I’ll include it with your blog info on the big day.
If you don’t have a blog but still want to participate, let me know and we’ll work out a way for you to post your photos on this here blog.
Updated to add: Comments for this post are now closed. Thanks to everyone who’s participating.
If you don’t decorate but want to share some of the holiday fun near your home — is there a particularly festive house or museum? — we’d love to see it!
So, to recap: Leave a comment with your URL. Then, start decorating!
