Christmas House Tour 2015 Christmas in the TV Room


Welcome to part 3 of my Christmas House Tour: Christmas in the TV room.

This is the coziest room in the house, lots of pillows on the couch, quilts to cuddle up in and a woodburning fireplace.
Did I show you the chairs I slipcovered in red and white?  They were just too bright for our living room but are perfect in here.
 I have a question. Is the bow supposed to go at the top or bottom of a wreath?  I notice that in the previous photo I had it hanging with the bow at the top! I love the look of a wreath hanging on a big mirror.

 We have all the ornaments our kids, and now grandkids have made and put them all on this tabletop tree.  That gave me the fun of having a tree all decorated with blue and white and silver in our living room.

                             This wall looks pretty at night.
               Mr and Mrs Snowman sing “we wish you a merry Christmas” in front of a Dollar Tree felt tree.
                         Chains of red apples add a festive touch to lots of blue and white containers.
                                Red wood cardinals, a yard sale find, are perched on the mantle.
So glad you stopped by. Come back tomorrow and I’ll show you our living room.

Christmas House Tour 2015 Christmas in The Bedroom

Welcome to my Christmas house tour 2015: Christmas in the Bedroom. Today I want to show you our bedroom.  It all started when I went to Magpie’s Vintage Treasures, a little shop in Matthews, near where I live, that only opens for a weekend, seasonally.  This cute little toile bear jumped into my arms as I was browsing in the store.


 She insisted that I decorate our bedroom for Christmas, and let her be the star.  So…
 Here she is making herself quite comfortable on our bed.  I switched the blue and white quilt for this all white bedspread, and added a couple of red and white stripe pillowcases.
 Then I folded one of the red and white quilts I made at the foot of the bed.
Some greens from our yard in white ironstone, classic and simple.  It looks so good with the brass lamp behind it.  


 Got a pair of brass lamps for $2 each recently and Hobby Lobby had lampshades 50% off the same day, so I the lamps only cost me $17 each!

 Some more greenery: cedar, nandina berries and holly on the other side of the bed with something I printed and framed last year.  There were hardly any berries on our holly this year.  Not sure why.
 Last year my feather tree had a button garland and these little cloth blue and white hearts.  At the insistence of my little bear, red balls and a red bead garland were added.


A vintage bunny and some of the Christmas hearts are nestled under the tree.
Thanks little bear.  I like how it turned out!  I’m thinking about painting the walls, dark blue.  What do you think?  Actually you may not be able to respond because yesterday the comments weren’t working and I couldn’t figure out how to fix them.  If you’ve ever had that problem I’d love you to email me and tell me how to fix it!!
Come back in a few days and I’ll show you some more of my Christmas house tour.
