What is Rudy Day ? .....

I've always enjoyed Christmas. The decorations, the flurry and, of course, the real meaning but always felt let down on December 26. It was all over in a flash. All the planning and doing was gone in a minute. Finally I found the OC ...not the tv show but the Organized Christmas website which led to the Magical Holiday Home Forum. I don't even know how I found it but I did. And they had this wonderful thing called Rudolph Day....Rudy Day to most of us.....that lets you think, plan, dream about Christmas at least once a month on the 25th. And the best thing was I found more people out there just like me ! Crazy about all things Christmas. Well, almost obsessive. But to my family and friends that think I'm nuts half the time, I just want you to know there is no cure for it so don't try to find one. I wouldn't want the cure if you could find one anyway.

Holiday Tour of Homes .... Day 1


Over at the Magical Holiday Home Forum, we are having a tour of homes for Christmas just like we did for the Fall. Head on over to Cathy's blog, Pumpkins and Reindeers, to see the links.

I plan on showing you a few pictures at a time. I decorate a lot. I have tried to cut back before but some people complained that it wasn't Christmas unless I put it all out. So here goes......

First the dining room











This table centerpiece is new this year and special to me. My grandpa was a carpenter by trade. This was one of his original tool boxes that he used.

Of course, all of this looks much better in person and wonderful at night.

Tomorrow, the kitchen and guest bath.

Blessings, Cathi
