Christmas Master Bedroom

Welcome to our Christmas Master Bedroom. At the beginning of the holiday season, I thought that I would skip decorating this room and focus my energy and money on the more family centered spaces. But as time went on, I realized that I would miss having this space decorated so I set out to add some Christmas cheer to our bedroom, without spending any money. I am so glad that I did.

Crafting Personalized Christmas Decor- Family Crest Tree Topper

Each year as the holidays approach, I try to think of a couple of unique projects to add a more personal touch to our holiday decor. The type of thing you just can't buy in a chain store or catalog. Last Christmas, I visited an awesome home tour over at The Crowned Goat blog and among many other things, I pinned a picture of the tree topper that CoCo used. Isn't it fantastic? Hers is vintage and I just love it.

Please be sure to read to the end of this post to visit all of the beautifully decorated mantel styles. I am excited to see how our decorating styles vary depending on what region we live in.

Christmas Master Bathroom and a Fun Advent Calendar

Hello friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. I always enjoy Black Friday because it is a day to stay home in my jammies, eat leftovers and search for good deals online. No actual stores for me on this crazy shopping day. Today, I am beginning to share some of my Christmas decor. I am excited to be participating in Jennifer Rizzo's Holiday Housewalk again, but that isn't until next week and I have so much to share that I will be sharing a few rooms earlier and then the bulk of our home in the housewalk. Let's begin in the bathroom, shall we?

Library Corner in Our Family Room

Are you busy getting ready for Thanksgiving this week? Me too. I can't wait to spend time with family. The other day I woke up early and set out to put away all of the fall stuff to get ready for all of the Christmas stuff. Sometimes it feels like I am constantly shuffling boxes of STUFF.  That part of blogging isn't fun.
