Christmasing in the Bedroom

Hello, Dear Ones. Christmas is almost here! So we must get all the rest we can and be ready for the festivities of that special day! Let me show you my bedroom - kinda Christmased up.
 We have been in our new to us home for less that a year and I'm still tweaking and trying to get things fixed up. I don't know if we really ever get to that goal.
 Our bedroom is nice and large with very high ceilings. You can see lots of bright sunshine pours through the windows.
 This is a sitting area here and as you can see my window is nekked! I think I'll probably in time add panels to each side as there are two little areas where the panels would fit just fine.
 This corner is to the right of the windows and holds my olden trunk, fan and a doily made by my grandmother. She grew the cotton, picked it and then spun it to make the thread to crochet the doiley! I'm so thrilled to have this piece. I crocheted the runner on the trunk. In one corner there is missing a circle as I never finished it and lost the pattern! Makes it interesting.
 On the dresser I poked pictures of my babies here so I could see their little faces every morning when I wake up!
 I smile with my heart each time I pause here. Love my babies.
I guess this little pillow is the only Christmasy thing in here! :)
 I wanted to show you our guest bathroom as I Christmased it up since we have been having dinner guests and our grandbabies are coming and this will make them smile. This is just a regular sized room with a pretty normal set up. The above snap pretty much shows you the entire bath reflected  in the mirror.
 Just a little festive tree and nut cracker on a glass plate.
These Christmas balls were on my tree when I was a little girl. I'm an old girl now so these ball are quite ancient! Merry merry, y'all!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Silent Night

Silent night! Holy night!
All is calm, all is bright
round yon Virgin Mother and Child,
Holy infant so tender and mild,
sleep in Heavenly peace!
sleep in Heavenly peace!

Silent night! Holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight;
glories stream from Heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ, the Saviour, is born!
Christ, the Saviour, is born!

Silent night! Holy night!
Son of God, Love’s pure light
radiant, beams from Thy Holy face,
with the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth,
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.

  1. Interesting finish on your bathroom walls.

  2. Bedroom looks charming! I am merry now! Merry Christmas to you!

  3. Your four poster bed is absolutely dreamy!

  4. Very pretty, Shelia! I love your pretty bed!

  5. The flat plate is presscut depression glass. The bowl is called fostoria,or white hall can' tell for sure.I love that you used it in the bathroom. I collect manhattan repurpose it too.No need to just have it stuck in the cupboard.

  6. I a,m merrier now for reading this sweet post.

    I think your grandmother's doily is AMAZING - and can see from whom you inherited your gift for the soft arts as well, for yours is beautiful too.

  7. Everything looks so festive! I have a doily my great-grandmother crocheted hanging in my laundry room. Unfortunately, I didn't take advantage of her talent and learn to crochet myself.
    Merry Christmas!

  8. If your face is 40 or older it's better to use a lighter touch. If your skin is fairly even-colored you may be able to skip foundation entirely. Foundations should be very light in weight.
