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

Christmas 2015 TV roomThis is the coziest room in the house, lots of pillows on the couch, quilts to cuddle up in and a woodburning fireplace.Christmas 2015 TV roomDid 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.Christmas 2015 TV roomI 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.IMG_8323_2

Christmas 2015 TV roomWe 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.

Christmas House Tour 2015: Christmas in the Bedroom

by Rhondi Mullins on December 4, 2015

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.

Christmas house tour bedroomShe insisted that I decorate our bedroom for Christmas, and let her be the star.  So…second try

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 house tour bedroomThen I folded one of the red and white quilts I made at the foot of the bed.Christmas house tour bedroomSome greens from our yard in white ironstone, classic and simple.  It looks so good with the brass lamp behind it.  Christmas house tour bedroomGot 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!christmas house tour bedroomChristmas house tour bedroomSome 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. christmas house tour bedroom

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 house tour bedroom

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.

Christmas House Tour 2015 : Christmas in The Kitchen

by Rhondi Mullins on November 30, 2015

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.Christmas house tour 2015 kitchen Our kitchen is white with yellow walls with blue and white accessories, but at Christmas it pops with RED. Christmas House tour kitchen 2015Dollar 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.Christmas house tour 2015 kitchen buffet

Behind each door is a scripture verse leading up to Christmas Day.Christmas House tour 2015 kitchen candlesSome candles on the island provide a warm glow in the evenings.teacup2

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.
