It's a Haul! | Ikea, Dollar Store and a few other odds and ends

I was trying to wait until the 25th to start decorating for the Holidays.

But then it occurred to me (after shopping, lol).....Why?

I love the holidays. And I think what pushed me over the edge was a gorgeous red lantern I picked up form Ikea. I am so in love with it. I couldn't wait to set it up.
I did get some other things that had nothing to do with the holidays but I am definitely most excited about the things that are for this festive season!

 So with this and few other finds, I have started to put our decorations up.

I will be waiting until the weekend to get our "real" tree for the basement. And I still need to decide how I will be decorating that tree.Then it will be full steam ahead to the Holidays!
