Four generations of Christmas lovers are represented here. The snowman and Santa belonged to my great grandmother Lenora, the elves were my Grandma Mary’s, while the wee tree belonged to my mother, Karen. I myself love to collect old mercury bead garland and bottlebrush trees.
Love and joy to you,
Just by painting the brown sponged walls a tranquil sea glass it immediately improved the overall look until we have the budget for a more costly remodel.
The 30 year old cultured marble sinks have yellowed considerably over the years but the new wall color helps to tone it down.
For a bit of holiday fun I added some garlands from Christmases past to the mirror and included a jolly snowman.
At the foot of the bed I draped a faux pine garland so that he could hang up the ornaments he has collected over the years. I have always allowed my kids to pick out the ornament that is their hearts desire. So, while I wouldn’t necessarily relish the idea of Iron Man and Indiana Jones hanging on the Christmas tree I think it looks great on this garland in his room.
As this has become a favorite reading spot the additional lighting is just perfect on cloudy days.
Sweet Guy, now 14, asked me to pick out this years ornament for him. It was bittersweet until I brought home the telephone booth, London bus and Big Ben from Tuesday Morning. He smiled wide and deemed them “Perfect!”
The only other decoration in this room is above the tv. A perfect place for the Dept. 56 Original Snow Village circa, 1976.
Happy Monday, let’s tour!
