Starting around Thanksgiving…. and going through the end of December…. I am going to include/encourage everyone to share their outdoor AND indoor Christmas decorations for Outdoor Wednesdays.

Greenery in the form of trees, wreaths and garland are from outside…… and they are inside for the holidays… yes, I am stretching the definition of Outdoor Wednesday…. but I can!!!

Other Outdoor photos are welcome (as usual).

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Time to share some Christmas decorations! Today I will share the living room decorations…

The boxes… oh my…. my kids brought ALL the boxes down… but then I had to empty them and decorate each room!

and the after…. of the living room….

  24. Wow, you really have a Christmas Wonderland there! What a lot of work - but it looks lovely. We haven't started decorating for the holidays yet - I'm running a little slow this year for some reason. Think I tried to hold onto summertime a little too long!

  25. I now saw that my link in the list of participants goes to wrong post, it should be http://utomhusliv.blogspot.com/2010/12/naturlig-jul.html (like in my comment here). Sorry! Is it possible to change it?

    My blog name Utomhusliv means Outdoor living, so Outdoor Wednesday is a perfect place to participate :)

  29. I was wondering, as I did my post, if you would be doing inside decorations this year as in years past..I'm glad you do that...You have a lot of boxes..I am trying to figure a way to have more convenient packaging because I keep all of my decorations in one closet and am forever dragging all of them out to get to the holiday I need at the moment.
    I love the theme trees you do...how many trees total do you put up and do you have any help.
