christmas in july?

i was never one to jump at the idea of christmas in july (although,  i did want to change my birthday to july 15th instead of having to celebrate it on december 15th- in the month of one hundred family birthdays and christmas), but i couldn't resist sharing these holiday images that i have been saving for a long time... purple themed holiday from desire to inspire

love the purple-ness of it all.  and the wall stockings?  TOO cute!

holidays table from desire to inspire

pretty paper and a lovely chandelier.

i have to admit...these images make me excited for the holidays!  and, we will have a little one to share it all with this year...ahhh- just the thought of it makes my heart melt!
