I woke up this morning and, after a quick morning routine, went straight to work and have been working in a frenzy ever since!!! DECORATING!!! I have been in the throes of DECORATING!!
I do believe this is our FINISHED bedroom all dressed up for Christmas.....and January and part of February!!! I didn't do THIS much and work THIS hard for three weeks!!
THIS was the earlier 'finished product!'
MORE is always BETTER is my motto!
Last year the only red I used in here was on the pillows and a red felt ball wreath.
This year I decided to go all out!
I played Christmas music on the CD player that is on my radio!
I had forgotten about it but now that I remembered it - I will play music all the time in here!!
I admit to lighting this Yankee candle BEFORE the room was 'done' since the fragrance gives me inspiration!
Nothing looks quite finished to me unless it has some fairy lights!
This is Louis Dean's bedside table.
I found several of my good pearl necklaces draped over a centerpiece that has been stored away all year! I forgot I actually WEAR these when I packed them away last year!
Now they circle a candle and I can see them in case I want to add them to an outfit!
The Christmas tree is lit with a single strand of 20 count lights because I am totally OUT of lights!!!
I buy HUGE quantities every year AFTER Christmas when they are on sale and this year I used nearly all of them up! I still have 100 count and a few 300 and such but that's a little overkill for such a tiny tree, don't you think?
I'm loving everything about the bedroom this year!
I didn't take the rose garland down from above the bed.....I just added to it!
And WHY have I never thought of adding a WREATH above the mirror before?
My bedside table - and there's still room for my book and my phone and iPad!
I seldom throw anything away!!
This Taffeta skirt is perfect on the white wicker basket that holds my purses!
This is my favorite corner in all the house to rest when I take a break.
I can prop my feet up and read and I'm also semi-hidden! Louis Dean can't really see me when he comes down the hall and if I am quiet he never even knows I'm sitting in here!
The quads find me every time!
I'm already looking forward to going to bed tonight in this my ONE clean and decorated room in the whole house!!
Earlier this evening Louis Dean and I took a little break out in the back yard.
I needed to rest a bit and he had lots of old papers to burn plus a big basket of last years pecans.
This made a nice fire so we poured us a glass of wine and sat out in the gazebo with our feet up!
We pretty much talked ourselves out of working any more today!
Earlier I DID work a little more in the dining room.
I added stars and white feathers along with another small strands of lights, ribbons and pearls.
I love stopping on my way down the hall to look at this.
Such an elegant Santa!!
Yes, this is done.
And so am I!!
At least for today!
Looking forward to church tomorrow and then I will back at the decorating!
