fallbreeze 40 days of Christmas

…and so it begins.  We are going to Melanie’s for Thanksgiving so went ahead and took down fall decor and traded it for whites and reds and greens of Christmas.

This cool light up sign was purchased by my daughter for my birthday.  Walking into the kitchen there it was with the simple message.  Sweet and sincere, the best kind of birthday wishes. I love that it is very modern looking compared to the rest of my house, that makes it stand out even more.  There are plenty of posts with chalkboard signs, and they are all really cute, but this is that something different which gets your guests attention right away. Since my birthday I have used it for several parties and couldn’t wait to use it as a countdown calendar for Christmas.  Over the course of the year I plan to use it for vacation countdowns and to highlight parties and birthdays throughout the year. Here is are two examples of how I used this sign in the fall:


Not sure why they are all coming out Sepia toned, maybe time of day, but I kind of like the campy look of it 🙂
