I've Started - Way Behind


I am so far behind most of you with the decorating.  I did make a tiny start, the front door pocket.  I think I will do all the outside in white and gold this year, since the inside is always traditional red and green.  Just a few things that I picked up at the Dollar Tree and my GW door pocket.

The little Dove ornamnet is perfect to hang off the front.

The reason I am so far behind is this - A Pumpkin Pie.  We had Thanksgiving with friends and today we are having our family Thanksgiving.  So, I am knee deep in Turkey, Dressing, Mashed Potatoes, Candied Yams, Green Bean Casserole, Cranberry Sause, Gravy and homemade Rolls.

Throw in a Chocolate Meringue Pie and we are all set.

See you all tomorrow afternoon for Table Top Tuesday.  Have a super Sunday!!!

  1. Looks yummy at your house -- can't decorate for Christmas until you get finished with Thanksgiving! Your door looks beautiful -- can't wait to see the rest.

  2. Maraty you are not behind anyone or anything, You are enjoying your own process. Just to get done would not be YOU. You put so much love into all that you do. Especially those pies. The crust on that pumpkin pie is gorgeous and look at how high the meringue is. Yumilicious at Marty's tonight!! Kathysue

  3. Marty I agree with Kathysue. You're following your own schedule and thats okay too. The problem with blogging is that we always feel pressured to perform and keep up with the others. If it makes you feel any better, I havent even got any of my boxes out yet, and thats okay too. It will get done, and if it doesnt....well....life will go on. :) I do love your door pocket. Hope you are recovering from all of your Thanksgiving preparations. The pies look amazing. Love you, Barb

  13. Don't feel bad Marty, I pulled my Christams boxes down from the attic and had to take a nap. Besides, my motto is if I take my time at it, I'll enjoy it more!~Ames

  26. Marty,
    Far behind. . .don't stress, dear friend! This is the Season to savor all the preparation we've been planning throughout the year!
    I love the "peek" at what's to come beginning with your front door. So glad you celebrated Thanksgiving with family and friends. . .we just finished the same Saturday! Remember to enjoy this Season! I'll be back soon for the complete tour...
    Fondly,
    Pat

  28. The pie looks yummy! You are not as far behind as I am. For many years I have had the tree up and decorated before Thanksgiving as the Grands loved having it up when they came for Thanksgiving, but it did not happen this year! Have cut back a lot this year.
    Have a great week.

  29. Shaping up Marty! It all takes time. Your pies look so yummy! Linda

  30. I love your door pocket arrangement. I have two that I picked up while thrifting over the last couple of months. Both need to be repainted and have something fun done with them. You've inspired me to get them done. Right away! I, too, feel that I'm behind in my Christmas decorating plans. We had new carpet installed a little over a week ago and over Thanksgiving weekend we had three grandkids come - one at a time - for overnight and a day with us. Now it's onward and upward! At least that's the plan!

  35. Oh those pies look fantastic Marty. I would have held off on decorating for those too! We haven't even started, and I don't know when we will be able to. Hopefully next weekend. Your door pocket is lovely, you are SO creative. Hugs, Kat

  36. Hi Marty! I love your new door pocket...so pretty! And your pies look so yummy! I am also going at my own pace this year. But that's OK...it's more fun that way! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  37. Hi Marty! Hope you're doing well today! I'm just getting started with my decorations too. I had to take all the lights off of my tree because some of them were burned out, now putting the new ones on is a chore. We thought about just getting a real tree this year but I don't like how they dry out so much by Christmas Day and I would have had to buy lights for it. One way or another you'll pay for it! I do like a real tree though. Your front door is just gorgeous! Have a great Monday! Looks like you had a wonderfully delicious Thanksgiving! :)

  38. The front door looks great! I really like the gold & white. By-the-way, what time is coffee & pie?

  42. I had hoped to start my decorating Saturday or Sunday, but my husband decided to clean the carpet over the weekend - the whole house!! The Christmas decor boxes are still in the attic :-(
