Lets Be Blue for Christmas....

Happy Thursday!

With my current work situation not looking too promising in terms of an expanding workload I had ample time today to re-read one of my favorite books, Blue Christmas by Mary Kay Andrews. Yes, I read the whole book today in one sitting (its barely 200 pages) while atop of my throne (the uncomfortable black swivel chair).

At bookstores near YOU....

I have read it a few times and every time I do I always wonder what it would be like to decorate for holidays with the color blue. Granted, the whole idea of Christmas decorating is a bit intimidating to me because it can very easily consume you and your home. There are so many things that catch my eye but I feel like it never ends, there are so many different themes, color schemes, and knick knacks that I would love to collect but in reality it would most likely be a jumbled mess. Since I have an exobortant amount of down time from the hours of 700am-330pm I find myself thinking about seasonal room displays and what I would someday like to decorate my home with. Blue Christmas got me to thinking about Kentucky's favorite color (Wildcat Blue) and how it could be incorporated into the festive seasonal decor.
Norman Rockwell meets the Kentucky Wildcats... 
Sadly, the FIN would probably think this would be festive and COOL...

Very understated, but VERY blue...

Blue at the beach...

Blue Christmas meets country charm... 

Yummy blue cupcakes...

Something for every Wildcat...

More my speed...

Even Elvis sang about a Blue Christmas....

I think I am going to order one of these and have it dated for 12/2010, 
symbolizing the our first "Engaged" Christmas...

I hope everyone has had a great week! Its almost the weekend! The are calling for snow flurries in Lexington tonight and that makes me blue (missing Summer already)....

Don't be too BLUE!
LOVE, MKH

I am going to try to decorate in blue and silver this year. I hit up a lot of after Christmas sales to get my ornaments. We shall see how it goes :)

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I love decorating! But it can be intimidating with all the different colors and different themes!
