Sleeps ’til Christmas Walk

On the First day of Christmas my true love gave to me
a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

On the Second day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

On the Third day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

and on and on the song goes…..

{Calling birds, Gold Rings, Geese-a-Laying, Swans-a-Swimming, Maids-a-Milking, Ladies Dancing, Lords-a-Leaping, Pipers Piping, Drummers Drumming}

 

My oldest daughter came home from school

complaining about this song.

She had participated in singing this classic during music class last week.

She said the song went on forever and she almost ran out of breath.

Heavens.

What an 8 year old has to endure, hey?

We are down to just under 8 sleeps until Christmas!

I have participated in a few home tours this season and will be linking to those further down in the post.

I also will be sharing links to other fabulous bloggers holiday walks!

Grab yourself a cozy blanket and a cup of hot cocoa…

…let the sleeps ’til Christmas walk begin.

For our sleeps ’til Christmas walk

the bedrooms were decorated simply.

I wanted a festive and fresh lakeside feel for the decor.

And I didn’t want to go overboard with decorating…

tight budget with only 8 days left until Christmas.

 

MASTER BEDROOM

Our master bedroom is light and airy.

Soft whites, creams, and green blues are the color palette.

Simple icicle lights added to the headboard (old door) give a seasonal twinkle

and make the room look magical at night.

An old table was separated and used as nightstands to flank the master bed.

My favorite mercury glass lamps flank the bed.

And the galvanized mirrors, used as trays here,

give that rustic feel.

Fun vintage style reindeer feed pillows from Finding Home adds texture.

LITTLE GIRLS ROOM

Foam snowflakes add some winter character to the wall behind the vintage black iron bed.

My 6 year old is a huge Frozen fan,

this is a subtle way incorporate that into the decor.

YOUNG GIRLS BEDROOM

My oldest daughters’ room has a soft color palette of gray, greens, lavender.

A mini Christmas tree on a silver platter adds that festive feel.

The bedspread resembles subtle snowflakes.

A vintage chippy white window becomes wall art above the bed.

Soft white lights were added to give that magical Christmas feel.

Hand painted nightstands in shades of lavender and gray

were refreshed from an outdated 70’s look.

A vintage cream chandelier hangs above the bed.

The smokey gray crystals sparkle in the light.

And of course, what would life be

without our golden retriever making herself comfortable.

As she counts down the last sleeps ’til Christmas

she would like to wish you Happy Holidays…

….and hopes you can find time to relax and enjoy, as she does.

  3. […] Craigslist and garage sales are full of those mismatched and unloved dining chairs. It always amazes me how a bit of paint and some creative juice can turn crappy into happy. These chairs were part of a dining set that I paid a whopping $40. What was part of the set you ask? A large dining table with chunky legs (swoon) and six chairs! The entire set was made of solid walnut. The set was well loved and honestly needed a whole lot more love to make it functional again. I sold 4 of the chairs to another party for $40, making all my money back. I kept the two best chairs, which needed minimal gluing of the joints and a few screws tightened. The dining table was separated to create nightstands in our master bedroom. […]
