Christmas in April?

It pays to be patient…I wanted so badly to own one of Dore Callaway’s originals…especially her “Merry Christmas” sign.  It sold out as soon as she posted them in her Etsy Store .  I’ve been on a waiting list for this sign and I’m just so excited that it arrived to me today!

Thinking I should leave it up to enjoy all year until Christmas?

If I had one that pretty, I sure would leave it out all year. After all, Christmas is in our hearts all year long...right?
I have a Father Christmas that lives in my living room all year long. :))

The sign was worth waiting for Tracie and it looks great where you've hung it. Why not leave it out year round? It would be an interesting conversation piece.
Happy Easter.
