October.

It is just October.  I have to keep reminding myself.  This weekend I got pretty excited about the holiday season that’s fast approaching.  Not only were Whitney and I shopping for vintage holiday finds for our winter collection, but the air was CRISP! and COOL!  In contrast to the wall of heat and humidity that usually greets me as I’m stepping outside in the morning, this week I’ve shivered (ever so slightly) as I opened the door.  And I love it.  That means boots, and sweaters, and scarves!  Yes, yes, and yes!!

Listen, I’m not the only one getting ahead of myself.  IKEA already has December in sight.  I breezed through I went to IKEA and tried desperately not to look at EVERYTHING.  And I did a pretty good job until the very end before the checkout lines.  They had all of their new Christmas/Hanukkah decorations in a grande display of twinkling lights, modern stockings and sparkling ornaments.  I got REALLY excited!  But it’s only October!  Darn you, IKEA.

I will enjoy October and not think about Christmas.  I will enjoy October and not think about Christmas.  I will enjoy October and not think about Christmas.  I will enjoy October and not think about Christmas.  I will enjoy October and not think about Christmas!

November and December will be here soon enough.

And in honor of October, a spooky Tuesday’s Treasury, “Not Your Candy Corn Halloween”.

What?  Did you think I passed up those twinkling lights?
