christmas in july...

I know I shouldn't complain, but it has been H.O.T.!
This little heat wave has made me think about Christmas in July...

A vintage, white Christmas in July...

So lovely to have a Christmas in white. I love to decorate for Christmas and have plans in my head, but I hate winter, so I plan on staying on the heat side of summer as long as I can.

Debbie said...

Nice pictures...but I'm still lovin' all this heat!! of course, being on the water really helps.
Hugs to you.

Oh I know, I've already started thinking about how to approach decor this Xmas. Although we have months in advance, it always seems to fly by. Thank you for delighting us with those gorgeous CL images, Sandi!

I watched the weather tonight and it looks as if the entire country is sweltering....with no end in sight for awhile. Your pictures were just what I needed to remind me that this heat will pass and cooler days are ahead.
Loved all your purchases in the previous post. They look to all be keepers to me!!

Lovely pictures, it may be hot even here in Minnesota but I sure don't want to see snow for a long time!

It is unusually cool and rainy here in Oregon so far this summer. In spite of being envious of your heat and sun, I'm enjoying your Christmas in July post!
BTW, where did you get your Johnson Preserves crock? I'd love to find one!

Sandi said...

I say bring it on if it brings cool weather!! TOO hot and not much relief in sight. I can always bundle up , but can only take off so much. lol

These are some of my favorite inspiration photos! Such great rooms make me want to drop everything and style something! Were half way to Christmas already! Hohoho

We think therefore we are...I'm thinking this is making me feel a little cooler.
Amazing how well those rooms have stood the test of time.

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

It's been hot here, too. But today I woke up and it felt like fall! I could even hear the geese flying. Weird.

I love all your pictures. I hope I can have an all white christmas tree someday.

VA Boutique said...

Oh send me some heat, it has been raining for days here in the UK!
Love all these pretty festive images.

These are gorgeous and I can't wait to snuggle up to a roaring fire. They have all their Christmas stuff out already at Hobby Lobby, a bit early but at least it makes me feel a bit cooler. :)
Stay cool!!

Funny how everyone is saying it is so hot where they live. We actually had record breaking cold for the time of year here in Oregon. Love the weather, it has been so mild. Thanks for a lovely blog.

Cindy Adkins said...

These pictures are dreamy. It actually gave me an idea for a tree in my beach room this year. Lovely.

Thank you for linking up with our White Christmas in July blog party.

Celestina Marie said...

Love this post and your pics are so inspiring.
We too are having triple digit temps here in Texas. I have been designing Christmas for a few weeks already.
Somehow it's not helping to cool down our weather. LOL
So loved my visit to your wonderful blog.
Thank you for sharing White Christmas In July.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
