Christmas in the...Ah Hem :)

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, Mr. Precious and I are having a little party here at the Note Songs cottage tomorrow night! I spiffed up the tiny little powder room for our guests and since everything is all clean and festive - I thought I'd give you a tiny peek! :)

You never know, but the Jolly Old Saint Nick just may come to our little party! He was invited you know. Well, since he's always so busy I'm sure he'll need to take a tiny little bathroom break, don't you? So everything is ready for him. When he comes in through the door this is what he'll see. Wallpaper! Yep, and lot's of it! ;)

On top of the toilet is a little wire reindeer basket filled with cinnamony smelling pine cones to scent the air with their wintry smell. Sniff sniff! Isn't that nice! :)

Now if Old St. Nick peeks over to his right or it could be his left :), his tiny black shiny peepers will see this!

Now if he should sit down, I'm just saying, he'll see this little Christmasy vignette all set up on a tiny little half moon table that was my mother's many many years ago. Snow globes among the rabbits. Hey, rabbits are Christmas too! :)

Now, St. Nick follows all the rules of cleanliness and will want to wash his hands with this special hand soap from Pier One. Isn't this the cutest thing? I found this little hand soap/lotion duo and had to have them! Smiles cuties! :)

Next Mr. Jolly will dry his tiny hands with these very special guest towels sitting in their very own little basket! I'm sure he'll get a big kick out of seeing himself on the little towels.

Then he'll take a big whiff of the scented pine candle and think about snow, reindeer and toys.

But if he looks on the walls he'll be brought back to reality and realize he's in the powder room and he had better get on with his business! Did I just say that? You bet your candy canes I did! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Jolly old St. Nicholas, Lean your ear this way!
Don’t you tell a single soul, What I’m going to say;
Christmas Eve is coming soon; Now, you dear old man,
Whisper what you’ll bring to me: Tell me if you can.

When the clock is striking twelve, When I'm fast asleep,
Down the chimney broad and black, With your pack you'll creep;
All the stockings you will find Hanging in a row;
Mine will be the shortest one, You'll be sure to know.

Johnny wants a pair of skates, Susy wants a dolly;
Nellie wants a story book; She thinks dolls are folly;
As for me, my little brain isn’t very bright;
Choose for me, old Santa Claus. What you think is right.

  6. Shelia! LOL! Loved this post, and those Santas are the cutest things I've ever seen. I need to race to Pier One and see if they have any. CUTE. CUTE. CUTE.

    I love your powder room. If you're not careful, Santa just might pitch a tent in there it's so pretty!


    Sheila :-)

  7. Oh, and have fun at your party! I'm partying tomorrow night, too. Fortunately, it's not here because I still don't have the first decoration in place. ;-)

  8. Oooh! I feel like I'm a voyageur! Pretty Powder room. I'm sure your guests will be impressed!

  9. Oh what pretty Christmas touches you've brought to your "ah hem" room! Santa will be quite cozy! He could ride his sleigh in to my house tonight -- it's snowing to beat the band! No partying here -- I'm going to stay home and piddle.

  10. Great post today...thanks for sharing...Pat H

  11. Heeheehee... this just cracked me up, Shelia! I never would have thought to do a post on a potty room, but you rocked it!

    Justiney :o )

  12. Your house and your bloghouse are very elegant and solemnly!
    I admire your creativity, Shelia!

    A litle wire reindeer basket with cinnamony smelling pine cones are cute. I'll be looking for this kind of decoration and smell.

    May your Christmas Holiday be blessed time with your family!

  13. Love your cute little powder room! Ho Ho will surely make a stop just to see the cute little reindeer and to use that darling hand soap and lotion set! Enjoy your party!

  17. How jolly and adorable your powder room looks Shelia. You know I love rabbits in the powder room. The snowman lotion/soap duo is so cute. My mama had an old Avon snowman perfume bottle that looked very much like those! Have a wonderful time. Will Chloe Dawn be wearing her Santa hat???

  19. Hi Sheila,
    I bet your powder room smells lovely; all Christmasy! I'm sure little Saint Nick will love it!

    Christmas blessings,

  20. It's just darling Sheila~ Santa will love it too~ I still love wallpaper and now it's making a comeback. So there, HGTV! I am loving yours and your guests will enjoy all the pretties! Hugs and Merry Christmas! Cindy

  21. Hope your party goes well! Like the basket w/ the napkins! Hope they don't enjoy their time in there too much and stay in there too long so a line forms! ;O)

  22. Your guests will have so much fun cause I am sure you are a great hostess. Santa will enjoy that bathroom a lot too!....Christine

  23. I love that you decorated even the potty room! I'm sorry it has been so long since I've visited...I haven't been on blogspot much at all. I went through all your past posts and enjoyed them all so much with all your Christmas pretties! I especially love the photos where it snowed in Galveston. I think its hilarious that Houston has had more snow than we've had yet in this part of Ohio!

    Merry Christmas!


  24. O, I love your powder room with all it's Christmasness...Not only St. Nick is going to love visiting this little room but so will all your sweet guests.
    Have a wonderful party with your friends and then, come back (with photos) to tell us all about it. Can you take photos of your Christmas-loving friends? You bet you digital you can!!! (I love this little game you have me playing along with, and that's a GOOD thing!"
    Christmas blessings and hugs to you and Mr. Precious....

    I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can come by for a visit. I will continue posting, even if it doesn't show up in the Reader.
