Looking for Inspiration

This being the first Christmas as a shopkeeper I am having a hard time getting into the groove.  I love decorating for Christmas but I feel like we are skipping over Thanksgiving.  And since that's my favorite holiday I'm having a hard time putting away the pumpkins and leaves and pulling out the trees and santas.  So, today I went strolling the aisles of the local fabric store for inspiration and here's what I came up with...
Fringe...beautiful silky fringe.  And my first thought was...Garland!  That's right I decided to use it as garland on one of the trees that is going to be in the shop.  I wasn't sure how it was going to work but it was on Sale so I thought I'd give it a try.
So up went the tree and on went the garland and...
Although the ornaments aren't on yet I think I like it!

I'm linking up with The Shabby Chic Cottage for Transformation Thursday and Tinsel & Company for Deck the Halls Friday. So many fun things to see go check it out!
