Switching Gears

It's been a flurry of Christmas decorating over here, but if you've come a callin' you would never know that by the lingering Thanksgiving look on ye olde blog.  Turns out it's the last thing to be decorated .  
Up above is the apple pie that I made for Thanksgiving day.  I'd hoped to do a post about the way I cut out the crust using a giant pie-sized cookie cutter that I found last year at TJMaxx.  That isn't likely to happen now as the pie is long gone.  
Oh well, we all know this is the season for time moving along at an accelerated pace. 

 One last photo of my sister-in-law's pretty Thanksgiving table and it will be time to switch gears and welcome the beauty of the Christmas season.  I've got lots of things that I want to share, but so far they exist only in my head.  I'll be spending some time with the camera today because . . .

♫  we need a little Christmas
right this very minute
la de da de da de da de da da da da da
Oh we need a little Christmas   
right this very minute,
we need a little Christmas
NOW ♫♫♫

  1. I hear ya, Kim! My blog was actually the first thing done up for Christmas, because I had help! Ha! Your pie looks beautiful and I'm sure was delicious. I love a cut out crust like that. I have those autumn leaf glasses, too. Didn't get to use them, though :( xo

  2. Oh what a beautiful looking pie. A work of art!!!
    I bet is tasted as good as it looks.

  3. You have me drooling over the looks of that pie!

  4. Oh my ... the apple pie is so pretty! Such a pretty Thanksgiving table! Yes ... it is time to fluff and feather our nests for Christmas! Such a warm and cosy season! Hugs ♥ Teri

  5. Yes, I'm ready for Christmas now and the decorating will begin on the weekend. Your apple pie looks delicious and what a pretty Thanksgiving day table!

    Enjoy the decorating, Kim!


  6. It looks wonderful here! I agree. A little Christmas is just what the doctor ordered, especially after listening to the news about...nope, not going there today. Keep it light. Keep it bright. Keep it merry!

    But, Kim, why can't you talk about the pie? Lots of people make pies for Christmas.

  7. The pie looks scrumptious! I've not begun decorating the house yet, but I did change my blog header a few days ago. Maybe this weekend we'll start decorating. I like the decor to stay on into January, so I don't rush it beforehand.

  8. Wow! your blog sure does look festive and beautiful! I like the blue and white.

    Your pie looks like a magazine photo and your sister-in-law's table looks so inviting.

    Looking forward to see all of your Christmas touches.

  9. I can eat pie for any occasion...and yours looks most inviting! Have fun switching you decorate for Christmas.

  10. Kim, I love your new blog pretty! Your pie looks really beautiful, too. As does your sister-in-law's table!
    I agree that we need a little Christmas! I hope to get the decorating done this weekend.
    Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

  11. I've been so ready for December, but then I realize that the first week is jam-packed with commitments. Time really does fly by!
    I like your new blog look!

  12. This pie looks yummy! I love apple pies of all kinds.
    We'll deck the halls soon... I hope!
