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.
Welcome to my Christmas House Tour 2015.
I love to decorate our house and make it look festive and welcoming for family and friends! So usually before the dishes are washed on Thanksgiving day, I talk someone into hauling the boxes down out of the attic and I put on some favorite Christmas music and then start to put up the tree. There is no tree in our kitchen, but it always gets a makeover.Our kitchen is white with yellow walls with blue and white accessories, but at Christmas it pops with RED. Dollar Tree felt trees from several years ago parade across the top of the china hutch and much of the blue and white china moves out of the way for the red. I like to use these Christmas dishes for our meals throughout the month of December.
Some vintage teacloths, red apples and flocked pinecones get tucked in there too.My red dot teapot gets used a lot this time of year.I love this wooden tree. Behind each door is a scripture verse leading up to Christmas Day.Some candles on the island provide a warm glow in the evenings.
Oh, and of course I have the tea ready. I know you are probably very busy, but I hope you have time to stay. I got my “Christmas Cup of Tea” teacup out especially for you! If you can’t stay, I hope you’ll come back again to see the rest of our house another day.
Happy fall y’all! Fall officially starts Sept 23 4:21 am The weather felt like fall today so it was a perfect day to do a little fall decorating. First thing I did was pick some flowers in the woods down the street.Then I added a few things to the mantle in our living room.It looks pretty with the candlelight.The glow of the candle reflects off the brass lamp which gives light to the pumpkins I paintedA few more bits and pieces finish it off: brass deer, brass candlesticks, initial and flowers.Some fake bittersweet lining the mantle to finish it off.
I also decorated the hutch in the kitchen
A teapot with a broken handle from my grandmother and a little 60 cent plate I bought at Value Village today. Some fake gourds and a pumpkin soup tureen. Can’t wait for it to get cool enough for me to serve soup from it!
Solidago from our garden. This always makes me think of fireworks.
That’s it for fall decor around here. Happy fall y’all.
What do you do for fall around your house?
