A BIG thank you to all my blogger friends.
It is all of your sweet comments that
show me you are not tired of looking at my pics.
Thank you very much.
I so appreciated you all!
I do change things up each year,
but usually have the same things.
I continue to add a bit here and there.
Like this Santa on the right.
For some reason I usually do not keep
anything I create...but lately each year
have been keeping a Santa.
This is a side table on the side of Bob's closet.
Whiskey jugs underneath.
Our bedroom is painted blue,
and the red in here surely pops.
This make-do mirror (not old)
paired up with a bowl of drieds.
A teddy on my make-do chair with
A simple red and white ribbon ties
these old men's socks together.
It seems we had a guest visit our bedroom.
Santa loved the decor so much,
he decided to stay a bit.
Could that be his red long johns for Winter?
Plus his white ones for Summer?
Notice the difference in size.
Mrs. Claus has to fatten him up for his
Christmas Eve deliveries.
(Yes Saundra, the long johns have made an appearance)
The horses also have to make an appearance.
The one tradition we still do is hide
vintage elves and the grands like to find them.
Which reminds me I have to hide the others before
they come over.
If your eagles eyes noticed on top of the quilts,
this linsey woolsey blanket
was on the bed in our spare room,
you were correct.
I forgot that my mom is allergic to wool,
so I had to move it out before she comes.
Our pumpkin pine cabinet.
For those not familiar with pumpkin pine,
it is when a pine that is over 100 years old
changes color to an orange.
Hence why it is called a pumpkin pine.
Unfortunately pine trees are cut way before
they reach 100 years now, so you will not see
this color in newer made furniture.
My display on top.
Another egg carton Santa and leather Reindeer.
I added some more stockings.
One more antique feather tree
with antique garland.
Now this checked quilt on the bed is new.
There are no antique quilts in a queen size...
I cannot tell you how many folks have came
into our antique store looking for
an antique queen bed.
Queen or king beds were not made back in the day.
At the foot of our bed is my blanket chest.
It holds Christmas decor, not blankets. LOL
Its a rare treat for Shadow to make
an appearance while I take pics.
Folks who visit our home other then my mom,
never see him.
He is a shy one.
Our little wild kitty we rescued.
View looking at Bob's closet area.
The drawers on the bottom are mine though.
If you are wondering why I chose Silent Night
for a bedroom post, here is the answer.
In the song one verse is
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Sleep as in bedroom. Get it?
Plus it was my dad's favorite song.
Red was also his favorite color.
Maybe that was why he always wanted
red poinsettias in the house at Christmas.
The funeral home the year he passed
was filled with red poinsettias.
Every one who knew him purchased a red poinsettia.
No other flowers were in the place,
except the spray on the casket where we
also added Christmas greens and red roses.
Well thanks for following along.
Thanks for commenting.
Really appreciate it!
Silent Night Blessings to All!
