OMG, I Found Someone Like Me!!!!!!

I have a new follower. Her name is Teresa and her blog is Teresa's Treasures. I am so excited that she found me because I finally found someone that is as passionate about Christmas decorating as me. Well, I think Teresa is more passionate but I'm a near second. Instead of writing about my first day of school I feel the need to give her a shout out.

First I want to thank Teresa for the compliment on my blog design. However, the genius behind it is my good friend Jen. She has her own blog design blog with many helpful tips that I'm always too scared to try so Jen helps me.

Currently, Teresa is having a giveaway on her blog. Although it would be awesome to win I wanted to direct y'all to her blog because she shares the same obsession love for Christmas decorating. Just to give you a small summary of my obsession love I'll share a few things.
  • If I could live in "Christmas Town" forever I would.
  • When I lived in San Antonio I would put my decor up early November because we had the entire week off for Thanksgiving and I went home for that. I HAD to have my tree up when I got back because that's traditionally when you put it up.
  • The decor came back down mid January. My birthday is on the 17th and I always had parties so I HAD to take it down.
  • At one point I thought about leaving it up year round and decorate it according to the current holiday.
  • Every time I moved or last May when I was looking for a house to buy I can only get a place with a "Christmas tree window".
  • I have 3 different dressings for my tree. I must have a theme every year.
Well those are just a few. I could keep going. And if I could do Teresa's job I so would. Although I'd totally be a beginner.

So please hop on over and check out Teresa's blog.

Ah! Thanks for the mini shout out for me!! I too love Christmas and totally get the need for a Christmas tree window!! I can't wait to see your new house all decorated for Christmas!

I think leaving a tree up all year would be neat too!!

I love theme trees! I wish the Christmas season lasted longer because I love the decorations too!! I am obsessed with decorating but I don't think I'd leave them up all year round {don't shoot!}

I have a friend who decorates her tree differently every year with a theme. She has done it all in gold, all in burgundy, all in white. It's always beautiful. But her husband owns a chain of department stores, so she can afford to do this!

Just dropping by from SITS to say hi; hope you'll do the same.

I am totally obsessed with Christmas decor well, most. Not the googlie eye snowmen but the good classics. It is so fun to finally find others out there. I have a blog where I share a new ornament every day....whimsy, out of the ordinary and bizarre makes me happy. While I can't do a tree like Teresa I certainly love her look and if I could have a dream job it would be as her elf helper!! ~Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!
