Christmas In The Master

Hello, Darlings.
How are you?
As I was preparing for a day of Christmas decorating before Thanksgiving, my husband tossed me a box of lights.
"Here, I've had these in my closet for a year."
Well, isn't he sneaky?

These adorable star lights became the catalyst for the decor in our bedroom.
The last few years having a tree in our room has gotten on my nerves.
I decided to use the lights in our room to give it a touch of Christmas without being too much.
They felt a little Nordic to me, so I headed on that course.

A scrawny little tree from the old Cloth World and a scrolly metal wall hanging with a heart carry on the theme.
Hearts and stars are traditional motifs of Nordic interiors.

 The bed almost got made up in reds but it just wasn't doing anything for me.
We had a gray and white pillow with a yarn design from last winter.
It reminds me of an alpine sweater.
The pillow and a soft, fluffy throw adorn the bed.
Another string of star lights swags over the headboard.
These are from Target and they are about $14.99.

They weren't in with the Christmas decor if you are planning a Target trip.
They were with lighting.
Two new lamps for $34.99 each jumped in the cart.
Lamps are so subject to changing styles and trends that I prefer not investing in expensive ones.
Every time we spend a lot on a lamp, I regret it.

I was about to put the old lamps in storage and it dawned on me that they would be fabulous on my dressing table.
A white ironstone platter holds favorite bottles of perfume.

The faux paperwhites came from Pottery Barn.
The smell of real ones is a little over powering to me.
Bill made the little stained glass for me out of an old lantern from our porch.

Some flannel from Joann's was stitched up for a pillow. The gray blanket is from Walmart last year.
We picked up two of them and they are perfect for very chilly nights.
They were only $10.00.
They'd be perfect if we didn't have a giant, white, shedding machine.

The mirror was $5.00 from my next door neighbor's garage sale.
It needs a little work. I'll let you know how it goes.

That is all for now.
I hope this finds you well.
