It was such a nice day today that Jeff and I decorated the outside of our house for Christmas. We are not quite finished, but when we do, I will be sure and share some pictures with you.
In the meantime, I am going to show you some pictures of our guest room all decorated for Christmas. We decorated this room with children items and it is the room that our nieces and nephews play in when they come over. So, have a look around and I will explain what I did.
I recently bought this handmade Santa at Arnett's Country Store which is located in West Frankfort, Illinois. Stacee Droit makes wonderful Santas and other wonderful creations too. I place my Santa on the bed. I really like how he looks in the room
I placed greenery in different places in the room to give it a Christmas feel without taking over the space.
I also but a candle and some greenery on the windowsill. I made the little greenery window decoration by cutting pieces from some garland I had and then tied them together with a piece of ribbon that I tea stained.
I placed a little handmade snowman that I have had for years in the baby crib at the foot of the bed.
I also decorated the little hutch that is in the room with some greenery and some newer Christmas books that we have collected.
I bought these sconces at Arnett's Country Store also.
I cross stitched the tree sampler this past summer and my mom help me make it into a pillow.
Jeff hung some of his miniture Hallmark ornaments on a little Hallmark tree we had. I am going to wrap the base in burlap, but I have not had a chance to do it yet.
This is my collection of vintage Christmas children books.
I also decorated the little table that sits in the middle of the room. It has my ironstone tea set on it. I placed a vintage Christmas table cloth on the table and added a pair of Christmas salt and pepper shakers.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of our guest bedroom. I would love to know what you think.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can. Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook. I would love to see you there too.
