Laundry Room Decorated for Christmas?

I have never decorated the laundry room for Christmas before......but the other day when I was sitting at my desk doing my hair and putting make up on,  I thought to myself.......

I am in this room probably 2 hours a day....why not add a little holiday cheer in here!    It began with a simply silver garland wrapped around the mirror......

Then,   I thought why not a small tree......

I had some cute ornaments that I bought last year  (90% off at HL) .   The ornaments kind of paint a picture of how this room is actually a multi purpose room,,, not just a laundry room.

I do so many things at this desk during a normal day.....

I talk on the cell phone,  not this phone.....

I use my computer......

I do my hair and make up here.....

Did I mention that I blog here.......

I come into the laundry room for linens that I use in my vignettes.......

I have bedding and table linens in these cupboards......

I iron in this room....well,  truth be told,  there's very little ironing going on in this!

In the cupboards behind the door,  I have candles...... 

Everyday candles......tablescape candles.....

Holiday candles and candle holders.     

There are several cabinets over the washer and dryer too!      I have cleaning products on most of the shelves in this area.

The drawers on this side of the desk have extra make up,  curling irons,  and my sewing supplies.    H bought me this sewing cabinet the other day at the auction.    After Christmas ,    H plans to paint it white and I will fill it with my needles and thread.

I really love my sewing cabinet....thank you H!

I also sometimes go thru my recipe books at this desk and H uses it to fill his medicine box.   He uses one of those pill organizers that you put your daily pills in.    He's on lots of medication since his heart valve replacement. 

Last but not least.....we fold clothes on the desk!  

 I think it was well worth the couple of hours in took me this morning to decorate the laundry Purpose room!
