Romantic Lifestyle peek

Back in September, 
my oldest son and his girlfriend came for a visit
and stayed in a guest bedroom that was dressed for Christmas.

A favorite pretty flocked tree with lots of twinkling white lights
and branches heavy with faux snow stood in the corner while
clippings of fresh branches of cedar and pine were
draped from the chandelier and arched windows.

Decorating ahead of the seasons is not that far from normal over here actually
so they didn't think much of it
and yes,
 in case you are wondering, the Christmas in September decorating
 didn't stop there.

I styled the outdoor patio for a winter evening
 with smore's, warm throws & lots of candles...
when it was 100 degrees outside

and my office became a winter wonderland with a white tree, birch logs & stockings
and a stack of presents being wrapped.

It was all part of a special project.
One that involved Chestnuts roasting on an open fire and Jingle Bells
and lots of singing along with Christmas music.

I have been sharing a couple peeks here and there of some of that Christmas in September 
and hinting at something that was to come.

Well, friends, it's here.
