  1. Thank you for the sneak peek! I start decorating tomorrow, and I can’t wait! I’ve stocked up on my favorite black & white gingham ribbon, and also soft green silk ribbon. I love tying bows around things in the kitchen, and on my wreaths, etc… I’m always inspired after visiting Stonegable!

  2. Yes, it’s Christmas time at Stone Gable, So glad to see all your ideas for Christmas and advice. I love Christmas, it’s such a magical time of year. I’m with you on using the faux greenery. I started to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving this year in our master bedroom with a small live northfork pine tree an an apothecary jar filled with white lights, snow and a glass snowman, very whimsical and soft. Can’t wait to see your Christmas house tour and tree theme. As usual so beautiful and fun to open your blog. God bless.

  3. The classic Bing Crosby Christmas music is playing, candles flickering throughout our home, and I’m beginning my Christmas decorating today. Loving your encouragement!
