It's beginning to look alot like Christmas.... well sorta!

I have started to add a few christmas decorations in with the few fall things I have around. Since we are hosting thanksgiving dinner I still wanted to leave up some fall decorations, but I am getting very anxious for christmas!!
I left up my pink pumpkins on the mantle and I have a shelf near the entrance I christmased up!!
Soon we will be putting up the tree and all the decorations. It just seems like time has flown by so quickly. It seems like not that long ago we had the tree up, and now here we go again.
I am looking forwards to thanksgiving. The Macys parade, turkey cooking, oh the pies......

Thrifty Thursday

Went thrift shopping again and brought home some new treasures!!
I found the beautiful painting and I hung it over my bed- it was only 5.00.
The plates I found were a set of 14 for 2.50 and 2 pairs of shoes for 2.00 each.
I love the tea set in the box. That actually came from walgreens and was only 10.00. How sweet it is!!
I love all my plates and I think I am a collectaholic- I need to figure out a way to store them so I can use them when I want to without the mess of trying to dig them out!!
I browse thru many many blogs and love them all. Each and every home is so beautiful- they all look so perfect!! I try to keep my home looking perfect and it is just so hard!! With 4 kids running around and hubby too- it seems no matter what I do I just can not have a perfect home like I see in the blogs and magazines!!
So how do I just get over it???
My house is very much lived in and it really looks like it!!
Does anyone else go thru this too?? Wanting your home to look perfect and finding it nearly impossible to keep up and still be able to live life?!?!?
