Get in the mood for red-Christmas in July

I know,we're not in the mood for Christmas,but I'm having a tiny Christmas in July for my Summer of color challenge over at Kristin's Twinkle,Twinkle blog.

This is my all time favorite Christmas scene-I adore the song.

These might be one of your favorites.... .






Are you getting in the mood?

Now that I have a few of you in the mood.Here is my craft for this weeks summer of color--RED--Two of my fave old Christmas music sheets inside of the cone.

Merry Christmas in July

I spent the last little while looking back on lots of your post that I have missed. What fun to read them all. The elf picture...I love it!

I'm trying to handle Christmas in July in Michaels. We stocked it on the shelve about two weeks ago and we already have the fall bushes and flowers in and a Halloween display...
Ugh...I'm just praying for the rain to stop and summer to come. We skipped over spring and tomorrow we are due to be in the upper 50's and 60's. My goodness, what a weather year it has been.
Len at church and so I'm checking up on all my blog friends.
Love to you Denise, lots of it!
Jackie & her gnomes

Funny, it's so dreadfully painfully hot these days, all week long i've been thinking "winter, winter, winter."

Janelle said...

I want to cooler weather, but I'm not ready for Christmas either. I like your cone and all the great images that you put into it. I love the sheet music in it. My house has sheet music everywhere since I have three musical people in the house.

Denise...another fun blog post. You started off with one of my very favorite movies....Little Women.
I think I'm always ready for Christmas having been in the retail world for so long.
Love,

Hi Denise! I like White Christmas and While You Were Sleeping. I admit, I always have Christmas feelings in July. I am glad that the Christmas spirit always delivers!

Janet said...

Your Christmas in July is wonderful. I like the cone you created and filled. Christmas is the perfect theme for red.

Julie said...

What a fun post and your cone is so pretty.

Julie said...

Denise, I don't have an easy way for anyone to follow me, but I'm looking into it. Thanks for asking. :)

Mandy said...

Happy Christmas in July!!
I have watched little women like a million times and every time I watch it I love it!
I love, love, love Christmas! It something so magic around Christmas, and although we shouldn't forget what we are celebrating, Jesus coming into this world, I love the Christmas tree, ornaments, carols and films.

My eldest (three and a half years old) has already started to ask me to put the Christmas tree up, and believe me, I would if it wasn't because when the right time comes, it would not have the same meaning.

Mandy said...

The bishop s wife...lol...also is the one below that photo from that too...you see I plan on having a movie night with all the movies you put on your blog...lol

love those red cones... must have a go to make those too! and now too youve made me want to re watch that lovely movie - little women!

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
