It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like... <br> {and giveaways}

Is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas at your house? Honestly, my house it looks a lot like moving day and only a little bit like Christmas. OY. Boxes and stuff strewn about everywhere {shakes head in shame}.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like... <br> {and giveaways}

How on earth did I end up with so many Christmas boxes? I had to run in the living room just now and take a photo so you could see a small glimpse of the horror — it is crazy. Must get better organized for next year and eliminate about half the decorations. Seriously. I’m way too in to “simple” to have that much stuff. Not to mention my house is 2,000 square feet smaller than our last house. I really only needed a few things this year, but WHERE are they? Time to regroup. Clearly.

So while I am having a “moment” around my house trying to get things in order, I thought it would be fun for a holiday giveaway!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like... <br> {and giveaways}OH MY WORD! Aren’t these the cutest.bunny.slippers.EVER?! I would wear these all day if I had them. Gina from Feather Your Nest is sweet enough to be offering one lucky reader of The Inspired Room their own special bunny slippers! You can choose adult or kids sizes.

Feather Your Nest has some of the best things in her shop, have you browsed around her site? One visit would make holiday shopping a breeze!

So to enter the great bunny slipper giveaway, leave me a comment with the answer to the question today,

“Is it beginning to look a lot like
Christmas at YOUR house?”

Let’s discuss. Does it look a lot like Christmas or more like a bomb went off? Yeah.

Oh, and for fun, there is a beautiful Apron giveaway over at Reluctant Entertainer so after you enter this giveaway, go see the loveliness!

    My home looks like Christmas threw up out of storage totes! I have not moved since 2000 but the amount of great holiday decorations is so over whelming! Desided last year to buy one special item each year and an orniment dated special for each boy! That is it! Btw I would LOVE those slippers!! Great blog – god bless

  2. Gail

    We are scaling down a bit this year – 3 trees instead of 5!

  3. Candy

    It doesn’t look like Christmas at my house yet. But, we plan to shop for our Christmas tree this week. Last year we took our daughter to 5 Christmas Tree Lots before she found the perfect tree. Also on the agenda is pictures with Santa. I’m glad my 6 year old still wants her photo taken with him. I knew the 3 year old would.

  4. Lori

    It is starting to look a little like Christmas at my house. I didn’t feel like bringing all the boxes down from the attic yet, so I have been going up and down the attic stairs getting a handful of decorations at a time. Crazy, I know, but its good exercise and I can carefully place things as I go! We bought our tree last night, so I will be bringing all the boxes down by Friday when we will decorate our tree.

  5. Debbie White

    It’s looking a little bit like Christmas here at my house. I was out and about yesterday and found some really cute ideas. I hope to have my decorating done by the weekend. How I would love to have those cute slippers!!!

    Those bunnies are TOO CUTE! And my teen daughter would LUV them. Yes, it looks like Christmas here! My tree is up, the mantel is 90% (missing something trying to figure that out) and I made a wreath for my front door. I also ADORE your stockings!!! Please share if you made them or where you picked them up.

    Those slippers are so cute! Aww!!!
    About the question…not yet. I think we are late here ^^
    Thanks for the chance!

  9. Geriann

    My house is totally decked out for the holidays already. YAY

  10. Sandy Blaxland

    Up until last night, yes! My house looked like a bomb went off. I have the decorations up (but not the tree) and, after 3 days, I tidied. But come this Saturday and Sunday when the tree arrives, it’ll be total chaos once again!

    (And I have just as many — or more — boxes as you do.)

    Please enter me for the bunny slippers! Thanks.

  11. Jennifer

    For the first time in 14 years of marriage our tree was not up the day after Thanksgiving. We have been renovating our living room and dining room and the mess is more than I could bare to bring decorations in to. On a brighter side, if all goes well, it will be finished by the weekend, so I will have to rush to have the house ready by our first holiday gathering on Sunday evening!

    I am ready for it!!

  12. Christi

    It definitely looks like a bomb went off here – Christmas stuff and not-finished-unpacking-from-the-move stuff. Yuck. I’m determined to be finished by the end of this week!
    .-= Christi´s last blog ..i heart faces =-.

  13. Stacy

    A big yes! I have made it through the “it looks like I am moving” phase and have almost finished. I am with you on downsizing the decorations. I have simplified my decorating considerably over the years but still find it had to get rid of things I don’t use. This will be the year I purge:)

  14. Brenda Kincade

    It is definitely looking like Christmas at my house. The tree is up and the wreaths on all the doors. It is still a work in progress.

  15. Aimee

    My house looks like your house right now! Boxes everywhere! But hopefully the decorating will be done in the next few days and we’ll be back to normal soon!

    By the way, LOVE your stockings!
    .-= Aimee´s last blog ..Ruffled T-Shirt =-.

  16. Kathleen Grace

    It most certainly looks more like a bomb went off. A pile of boxes in the office and a hole in the dining room ceiling where DH stepped through getting them out of the attic! The plasterer is coming and the entire dining room has to be stripped so he can work which means more mess. It’s all ok though, I’m taking it in stride and decorating around the mess for now:>)

  17. Lillian

    Oh it so is! I can’t believe it, but I’ve someone managed to keep the Christmas explosion of boxes being unpacked minimized by only bringing out one at a time. Even my husband commented that he was amazed – lol! We have two trees up(in the tiniest house, but we don’t care!), stockings up, books out, Nativity Scene out, Christmas pjs out – we’re good to go and it’s such a cozy feeling:) Happy Holidays to all – hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of the celebrations and joyfulness!

    Slowly, it’s beginning to look like Christmas! Like you, I still have boxes lined up in the living room! Very unsightly, for sure! Doesn’t “feel” Christmasy yet?!!

  19. The Stylish House

    I had so many boxes open and stuff all over the place I felt like I should be on the TV shows Hoarder or Clean House! I got it under control and can walk around in safety again, lol!

    Oh, these slippers are SWEET!! I’d love to win them!!

    Since a fall 2 weeks ago, where I injured my RIGHT hand, wrist (and of course, I’m right-handed) and knee, I’ve done very little, if anything. So…no, our house is not beginning to look like Christmas…………………………MUCH!! Unless, you count….YES, that works….COUNT THE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS I’VE BEEN ORDERING AND RECEIVING from ARTISANS on Blogs, eBay and Etsy. They’re strewn about the house.

    Does that count? You betcha it does!! LOL!!!

  22. gina

    It’s looking and smelling and feeling like Christmas! We did the first round of decorations- which included our tree. We cozied up the living room with soft pillows and throws and we’ve got Christmas Eve (from Yankee Candle) burning when we’re home. We’re spending nights reading by tree light and having friends and family over to watch movies- the fun has begun!!

  23. Kelly

    No Christmas yet… We too are in a new house and I have to rethink how to use my old things (but really I just want to go out and buy all new decorations!) I promised myself this weekend I’m just doing it – no excuses!

  24. Christina

    For the few days after Thanksgiving, my house looked like yours – lots of boxes, a little of Christmas decor. Now, it’s all cleaned up, and it DOES look a lot like Christmas. :) It was a bit of a challenge decorating this year. Our apartment is small, and I don’t have a lot of space to place decorations without everything looking cluttered. I kept it simple, but I love the way it came out! I plan to post photos soon on my blog. :)

  25. Cheri

    Mmmm…a mixture! We have a bunch of Christmas stuff out, but the house is a disaster as always. And very little of what we have actually suits our house/my current taste. But oh well…’tis the season to simplify and not fret about it. Although your stockings/mantel picture inspires me–it’s beautiful!

  26. Bonnie Mattson

    We are leaving for a month in Italy in just ten days. I am not decorating this year but I have filled that need to do it by going to several shops and just taking it all in. I cannot believe how much I want to do it but know that putting it all away in mid-January would be a big pain. So this year just a few new things to add to the collection of Christmas boxes are gracing our home.

    What I have noticed is how much less stress I am feeling. The Savior’s birth and the trip to see our daughter, her hubby and 2 of our grandboys is my focus…we haven’t seen them in just under two years. When you just say no to the things you think you HAVE to it is amazing what happens. Absolutely nothing earth-shattering. 99% of our stress is self-imposed.

    I do look forward to doing the things I really want to do next year knowing that the rest can be left undone with no major consequences. Next year I am going to simplify.
    .-= Bonnie Mattson´s last blog ..What is that "Snow?" =-.

  27. Kathy

    Mine is looking like Christmas! Yay! I’ve always tried to organize my Christmas bins {i.e. ornaments, mantle stuff} but I know I can do a little better. Plus, I like to go through and purge. Almost like with my clothes ~ if I haven’t used it in two Christmases it goes.

  28. Amanda

    Still deciding whether to put up the tree this year or not. We won’t be here for actual Christmas AND my 11-month old daughter likes to pull & climb on everything. I’m picturing it being more of a headache right now than and enjoyable thing. =) BUT…I have an almost 4 year old who would love it, so…..we’ll see. No decorations up yet.

  29. Spring

    Yes! As Christmasy as it will get, but I am very happy with it. We lost most of our decorations to water damage/mold, but had just enough left to cover our tree with loveliness, and put 3 2D gold trees on the bookcase. We got branches from a bush in our backyard, put them in pretty vases I already had, and hung mini ornaments on in them that we have never used for anything. Just need some more candles and the stockings up!

  30. Heather

    Nope, no Christmas yet. But since I’m having a dinner party for 15 this weekend, I guess I better get it done. Looks like I’m going to have to take a day off work to get it all done.

  33. Cara

    Lots of boxes. However, banging my leg into a pile of bins in the middle of the night while returning to bed after feeding my newborn was my motivator to try to finish today. Here’s hoping!

  34. Jeannie

    Those creamy white stockings are beautiful. My house is more on the side of a Christmas mess, trying to decide where things go, but I have to see it all spread out to know. Those bunny slippers are pretty darn cute. Just what I need to keep my forever cold feet warm. Christmas blessings to you!

  35. Teresa

    It does not look much like Christmas at our house. I just hung our Advent calendar last night and my fall/Tgiving decorations are still up. The plan is to get started this weekend.
    I love the bunny slippers!

  36. Michelle

    The bomb stage is now over and its beginning to look ALOT like CHRISTmas at my house! All the nasty red and green boxes have gone back into hiding. Those bunny slippers would love to come live at my house!

    My Christmas mess has been around since Saturday and I have no intention of fixing it until this Saturday. It’s in “neat” piles all over my living room.

    About a week ago it looked like I was decorating my house in rubber maid totes. Now with the totes gone we are happy to have a simplified Christmas. I only used about 1/2 of our stuff and the simple transformation has been heavenly. I too have jumped on the simplified less is more band wagon. I really need a pair of cute bunny slippers. I don’t have any slippers right now and my 3 girls would love seeing mommy walk around sporting those cute bunnies. Pick me! Pick me! Please Pick me! lol

    On Thursday it will be! This is my first year decorating my own house, and I’m so excited!

    Yes, it is looking very much like Christmas around here. For the first time ever, this control-freak/perfectionist/this is how I want my tree to be mom let my girls (11 and 10) decorate the tree. The WHOLE tree. All by themselves. I didn’t touch it. And it is the most beautiful tree we’ve ever had.

    Depends on which day you ask me….today, Christmas! After a while I start to feel like a bomb went off with all the Christmas “stuff” around.

  44. Jane

    I decided to down scale the decorating this year. We have some outdoor lighting and wreaths on the outside of our home. This year I decided to go with a much simpler and natural looking decorating theme inside. I am still sorting through containers of decorations and will be doing some serious “thinning” of way too much stuff. Love the slippers!

  45. Gail

    It looks like Christmas here! Just need to decorate the tree tonight. Although, looking at your stockings and garland on the mantle makes me want to toss all my decorations and start all over again.

    I can get my home decorated in less than an hour because it is organized and not excessive. I too have downsized and realize I don’t want it to look like Christmas threw up in my home. It all looks like clutter the day after Christmas anyway!

    Good luck finishing up!

    My house looks like a bomb went off in it but is an organized bomb. Last year my husband got fed up with me having him haul down tubs of stuff that I only pulled one or two items out of so I organized all of my bins and the attic so I knew just what to bring down. Everything is labeled and it was a whole lot easier to decorate this year. Love your site and ideas. I would also love those slippers to keep my feet worm as I curl up on the couch to read all the blogs I follow.

    we don’t have any room for christmas decorations, so it looks just like normal around here :(

    I am getting there. I have a whole box of unwanted decorations to go to Goodwill…every year I simplify even more.

    We will go and cut down our tree this weekend!

  54. Suzann from The Olive Cottage

    For a while it really did look like a bomb went off here with the Christmas disaster that was. Our house is also about 2,000 square feet smaller than our last house and I swear I have so much “stuff”. I am seriously scaling down and since my tastes have changed – some “stuff” just needs to go. I’m a much simpler gal than I used to be.

  55. Adrienne

    Oh, your post and photo today makes my heart feel so at home! That’s exactly what’s about to happen at my house – this evening my sweetheart will bring all the boxes and containers down from the attic and it will look like a bomb just went off. Like you, I’m into simple this year and I plan to do much less decorating and a lot more clearing out and getting rid of decorations. My dear daughter moved and needs to ‘upsize’ her decorating so I’ll pass some along to her – others will ‘bless’ the local thrift store or nearby Goodwill. Thanks for the encouragement, the comraderie and the fun of sharing the reality of behind-the-scenes Christmas decorating.

    My house was a real mess the other day with all of the decorating boxes out—I often switch what I do with the tree so I have different colors and assortments—thus I needed everything out to choose.

  60. Katy

    It doesn’t ever look like Christmas at my house because I don’t decorate for the holidays! My husband and I always go back to our hometowns for Christmas so we’re never around to enjoy the decorations.

  61. Violet

    Very Christmasy here now! Yay!!! Still need to decorate the tree though. I love the decor of Christmas, it is so cheerful and colorful,
    after I put it all away, I feel a sense of loss…. the house feels so naked at first! It is so much fun to take all the decorations out of the bins and be reminded of what is there. I seem to have lost our large Saint Nick though. Poor guy is out in the garage somewhere…

  64. Liz

    I absolutely had the Christmas bomb go off in my house too. My DH brought down the boxes (I have a ton too) last weekend, and I only managed to get 1 tree up so far. Gotta start the rest of the decorating today, having guests over this weekend. Now that’s motivation!

    My house is beginning to look a LOT like Christmas. I did the majority of decorating the day after Thanksgiving. I still have one tree to put up and I have to get the outdoors done, but after that I’m all good.
    Last year I went through everything after Christmas and re-organized, consolidated, tossed things out, and got new containers. It made it so much easier this year!
    p.s. Love the bunny slippers!

    It looks more and more like Christmas every day. slowly,but surely.
    Love the slippers

  67. Lizabeth

    Yes! We have four trees up – and one in the kitchen this year which is so nice – but I still need to get rid of some clutter, and the boxes. :)

  68. Arielle

    My house is completely undecorated – and will stay that way until Christmas Eve! It’s our tradition. Those slippers are too cute.

  71. Kim

    I have now sorted and cleaned up from the huge mess I made….we closed our business last year so I had all my christmas decorations from there as well as my home ones. The three trees are up and the mantle is done! Oh, now I have a little guy who wants me to find one of his Santa hats to wear…back to the buckets I go. Happy

  72. Cheryl

    Yep, definitely like Christmas (and not like a cyclone went threw spewing Christmas stuff) – but I have far fewer boxes of decorations, so that helps – and last year, I took advantage of the sales to get plastic storage boxes and finally got stuff into those and out of the bazillion half-falling-apart cardboard boxes of every possible type. After that, we could actually put almost everything in one closet in the house. Man, did that make this year easy.

    (The wreath, and three miniature trees were still in separate containers in the pantry – the big tree was in the garage. This year’s goal is to get those into a plastic box as well. Except for the big tree. That just ain’t gonna fit.)

    I think we are mostly the same – we buy all the lovely goodies and eventually there is just sooo much!!!

    My husband and I always decorate the house the Sunday after Thanksgiving! Every year the house looks different but we always watch White Christmas while doing it. We have had a great time doing it so far and each day I pull out something new. Right now it’s kinda of a haj pag of stuff hopefully over the years I will get the look I want and not just use the stuff that has been given to me!

    It’s beginning to look SOMEWHAT like Christmas. I haven’t decided on a tree yet this year, so a lot of my decorations are still packed. But I did get out my snow village to place on my dining room buffet, decorated the table, and hung stockings. So, yeah…I guess it is. :)

    It sort of looks like christmas at my house. If by “looks like christmas” you mean I have a “porch tree” (that I borrowed form m y mom to use as a christmas tree) up and a vase with orniments and 2 candles, then yes, I’m all decorated. I’m not worried, it’s mine and my husbands first Christmas together (he was deployed to Iraq last year) so I think it’s fine to not have much right now.

    Not yet. I am pondering not decorating this year – and I cannot even believe I’m saying that. However, I am planning a wedding, so my house is overrun with that stuff, I may be moving soon if US immigration decides to FINALLY, after a year of waiting, let my fiance move here from England and so I am thinking I might give this year a pass. I will, however, enjoy many of the sights to be seen on blogs and at friend’s houses.

    Right now it’s a cross between Fall and Christmas … my grand plans to get the tree up last weekend did not come to fruition! I’ve got my fall things up, wrapped Christmas presents and boxes everywhere! At least my iTunes Christmas mix is organized and perfect! :)

    Those white stockings are GORGEOUS! I couldn’t dare hang them in my house, though. Too many sticky little fingers…LOL!

    It is beginning to look like Christmas at my house…slowly but surely. Every year I feel like we have SO MANY more boxes than decorations, though! I open them up and set it all out and say, “That’s it?” Must – keep – collecting!!! (Husband would hate me for saying that!)

  94. TCLinda

    Holy comments, batman! Well, at my house it is NOT beginning to look like Christmas yet… we sent off our youngest to college. He was home for Thxgiving, but I’m just not motivated to decorate yet. I have to be in the moood…. I hope to have it done by the time he comes back for Christmas, but it would be more fun if he were here. I do like to dig thru the detrius of the years, though. So enjoy those little ones, becuz the time does fly!!! Oh, and if I DID have those bunny slippers, I WOULD wear them all day, becuz I work at home!!! yay!

  95. andifoo

    Not till tomorrow – that’s when we’re going to pick out our Christmas tree! The decorations will be hauled out of the basement, lights will be strung from here to howdy. The hubs will be mumbling words under his breath we’d rather our 2 year old not repeat as he attempts to untangle the lights I tried to convince him last year to NOT wad up & throw in a tote. Christmas music will play, hot chocolate will be served as we decorate the tree as a family. This is my first year hosting Christmas Eve dinner here in our new home and I am so stinking excited!! eeeeeeeeeee! Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Looks like a bomb of ferns went off! Christmas trees and branches everywhere!

  97. flybabymom

    Well, it’s still kind of war-zone-like. :) Actually, it’s going to get quite a bit worse before it gets better! But by this time next week it should all be done–hopefully by Sunday evening it will look like Christmas instead of bomb-shelter…

  98. Susan

    Definitely looking a lot like Christmas…Christmas AFTER the nuclear holocaust. Boxes everywhere. Rearranging ornaments and lights on the tree as I go along. Stockings draped over the chairs. Garland unwound all over the living room.

    I have had most of my decorations out for about 3 weeks, but I have yet to get the tree out. So, very soon a bomb will have gone off at my home as well, as I see how many sections of my “pre-lit” tree are still lit this year and get out all the boxes of ornaments and lights! Happy decorating!

I’ve decorated everything that I can that’s out of his reach! I’m sure he’d have a great time grabbing at those bunny slippers if I was wearing them around the house, though!! :) Maybe they’d even keep him from grabbing the Christmas tree?

    Looks like Christmas in my house! It is tradition in my home to decorate the tree on Thankgiving night. That way I have more than a full month to enjoy everything. This was the first year my son, Brice age 3, helped me decorate the Christmas tree. Every night we sit in the living room, reading Christmas stories and looking at the lights on the tree. He is so very proud of himself for helping put the toys (decorations) and dots (christmas balls) on the tree this year. Merry Christmas everyone!

    I actually just posted about the chaos at my house….and wondered if everyone makes a mess while they create……It does look JUST like a bomb went off. Why can’t I be neat?

    Slowly, things stored away in boxes all year are making their way up the stairs.

  121. Lorrie

    There’s a hint of Christmas in our house. Most of the presents are hidden away, but the decorating – well, not nearly there. I reward myself after an hour or two of studying for finals by saying, “okay, now you can put up the nativity set,” “now you can hang the garland on the staircase,” “now you can put the snowflakes in the windows.” It’s very piecemeal this year. But I’m enjoying the process and soon, I hope, everything will be serene and twinkly.

    I’ve put up my Christmas wreath! That’s it so far. Would love the bunny slippers. I love your blog! Keep up the good work!

I’m on a mission this payday to get it done and maybe the Christmas spirit will return.

    We traveled out of town for Thanksgiving and flew back Sunday morning, it was about 11:30am when we got back to our apartment… and yes, I was insane enough to start Christmas decorating as soon as I had unpacked our suitcases (at least I unpacked first). :-P So we were 90% done by Sunday night when I went to bed. I finished up with the last little touches of garland last night. ^_^ Granted, I only decorated our front rooms and we live in a 980 sq ft apartment, that makes it pretty easy.

    Not really decorating this year. My house is too small and is in a state of remodel. So I will make up for it by helping my parents deck out their house.

  172. Jill F.

    Right before reading your blog entry, I was debating whether the Christmas decorations will even be coming out this year. I’m in the middle of a very stressful semester at school and just seem so disorganized. I’m afraid that if I bring out MORE stuff that I will be even more overwhelmed. I’m sure I will end up compromising and put at least some of the stuff out. I don’t have kids, so I’m not “depriving” anyone (but myself, maybe?) of not going “all out” this year. Trying to simplify a bit, I guess!! (Except one can always make room for a pair of bunny slippers–LOL!)

  173. Lynn L.

    Well, a little bit. We moved into an apt. recently after selling our house and not finding a house to move right into. So, we are very cramped and all of our Christmas stuff is in storage. So, to compensate for the lack of decorations this year, I bought the girls (have 3) a hot pink tree (that they can use next year in our soon to be playroom in our recently purchased home -yay!) that they have decorated themselves with ornaments they have made. Not so bad after all!

    Well, it was looking alot like Christmas, until the carpet installers called and I had to stop everything to get new carpet. Now I am not complaining, mind you, but it does look a little like a bomb went off here with a little Christmas thrown in.

    It is ‘starting’ to look like Christmas…..brought out the boxes, and got out some decorations and found a place for them…..others are still hanging out in the boxes! Promised kid’s that tomorrow night is the night for the tree.
    Cute slippers!

    My blog post from a few days ago includes a photo of my living room with all the Christmas boxes everywhere, the word OY, and the sentence “How did I get so many boxes of Christmas things?” So, yeah, I know exactly what you are going through!

    Love those slippers especially since our furnace went out this week!
    Toasty toes. I love your stockings. Did you make them?

    It’s been a busy two weeks with out-of-town guests here for Thanksgiving and a full work week as well as catch-up on the home front after guests left. Starting this weekend, we’ll: purchase a live Christmas tree, hang the stockings onthe fireplace, hang the wreath decorate the tree and start baking gingersnap cookies. I haven’t even pulled out the boys’ wooden advent calendar (but I have all the goodies to fill it). I did pull out all my Christmas CDs this week, so the music has definitely put us in the mood for the season.
