The First Room Reveal, The Master

Good Morning!!! We had a very busy weekend! Friday, Joe and I celebrated our 50th(!!!???) anniversary!!! I am having a hard time wrapping my head around that fact! WHERE have the years gone??? We have grown together and had an amazing ride through these years. He makes me laugh every, single day. Saturday was Colleen's 5th birthday party! Great weekend!
Today I wanted to start sharing my Christmas decor for 2017! I am starting in the master. I am using my Winter Birds bedding again this year, as I still love it. It is colorful and makes me smile and I can keep it all winter!
On the table at the foot of the bed is a large nest with some cardinals on it. Also a red tree, a nutcraker and a large pine cone piece.
 I had this garland type piece in my stash and realized it really matched the print on the bedding. I love it on the mirror.


 This white Santa sits on a basket that is covered with a faux fur cover. Since the pillows on the bed are faux fur it all works together!
 My theme this year is trees, Trees, TREES!!!
 Joe's dresser has a nutcracker.
 My dresser, dressed with a Santa, 2 glitzy deer and some bottle brush trees.



 Now we will move over to the sitting room area.
 I wove 2 garlands together and placed them on the back of the love seat.
 These pillows are the pumpkin pillows I used in the dining room for Fall. I just turned them around and pinned a pretty ornament on them!


 Gold tree candles sit on the candle holders.
 This pottery piece is one of my favorites. I got it at a craft show many years ago.
 I love that the pine cone pieces resemble animal print:)
 In the early morning the sunlight makes amazing shadows!
 It looks like mini lights!


 Love this affect!

Thanks so much for your visit. Have you started your decorating yet? We spend Thanksgiving at our daughter and SIL's and then we will host Christmas dinner. Our son is up from Fl right now. he has made it a tradition to come up for Colleen's birthday and stay through Thanksgiving !!!! 
XO, Pinky

Decking the Halls....and Table!!!

Today I am sharing the very first seasonal table I have done this year. I found these adorable salad plates and just had to have them. I love them! I have been decking the halls and am ALMOST done! Once again I will be on our neighborhood house tour so have to have everything in ship shape:) I will start sharing my decor next week so thought I would show you this table. On Friday, Joe and I will celebrate our 50th (!!!!) anniversary! It is so hard to believe it is 50 years! We were just kids, literally when we said I do but we have had a wonderful ride TOGETHER! Ups and downs of course, as that is what life brings but we always face them together. He makes me laugh EVERY day so that is a very good thing. Sorry, now to the table.
 I am using my favorite winter tablecloth as the base. A runner is at the back of the table to hold the centerpiece and some candles. A snowfkae placemat, red dinner plate and my salad plate.
 I found this snowman flatware at CTS and did a happy dance! I just love it!  The snowmen and snow flakes are so cute! It is now our everyday flatware for winter!
 These snowman glasses came from Dollar Tree last year.
 And my red bubble glasses are another staple in the winter.
 Snowball votive holders are surrounded by red berry candle rings.
 My snowman is the star of the table.
 He sits (well fell) onto an oblong greens piece that I embellished with some snowflakes and pine cones and snowy picks. This LED snowball is one of a set of 3 that I got on clearance last year. I have to change the batteries in the other 2.
 Isn't he cute?
 Snowman S and P.

 Details of the runner, with snowflakes.

 I gathered 2 snowflake napkins in 2 rings. A metal snowflake and a greens and berry ring!




 Can you see the reflection of the tree in the window? I also caught the "blue hour"!!

We are enjoying this table and enjoying some comfort food at dinner. Joe makes wonderful chili and I will share the recipe if you would like it.
Thanks for your visit. We are going away Fri. and staying in the hotel where we went for our honeymoon. Then on Sat. we come back for Colleen's 5th birthday party!!! She is growing up way to fast for this Gigi:) 
XO, Pinky

Yes, I am Decking the Halls!!!

Yes, I have started decorating! I wanted to get a very early start  so that I am able to ENJOY it all for awhile. The Christmas season is way too short for this girl:) I love this sweet, sparkly deer. I have a "thing" for deer.
 This is an antique Santa. I have a large collection of Santas as I started collecting them over 30 years ago.
 The snowmen have returned to the breakfast room. I think this may be the last year for them. I am TRYING to purge a little:)
 I set a fun table for us too.
 A faux boxwood ball in a blue and white pot and embellished for the season.
 I love my Snowman lamp and the plaid shade.
 Part of the hearth at night.
 LOVE my animal print ornaments.
 I found these LED snowball lights at CTS last year.
 The window sills in the breakfast room get embellished to hide the cords:)
Thanks so much for your visit. Have you started yet??? I used to wait til the day after Thanksgiving but I was killing myself trying to get it all done FAST! You all know I do A LOT!!!
