    Too Soon?

    Is it too soon to talk about holiday decor? Maybe, but I think this one requires a little head start. I ran across this small-space Christmas tree solution over at Curbly and I think it’s such a fantastic idea. They have a complete instructions for putting together the shelf over at their site. The one thing I might add are some small hooks at the bottom of the shelves so that I can hang some of my favorite glass ornaments.
