St Nick's Laundry Room



Does anyone else decorate their laundry room for Christmas?     I like to decorate rooms in our home that I spend a lot of time in.....the kitchen,   family room,   and who doesn't spend plenty of time in the laundry room!

Transforming a Faux Ficus Tree into a Christmas Poinsettia Tree


I have been sending stuff to the studio non stop to make room for my Christmas decor,    Now the studio is overflowing and it's time for me to make some hard decisions.....lol!      Send it to the studio or try to make it fit in with my Christmas decor.     The ficus tree in the sunroom would take up most of the available space in the studio,  so what's a girl to do.....make it work!

North Pole Bed & Breakfast Entry


Hello Everyone!   
 I'm so excited to share my North Pole Bed & Breakfast entry with you today.....and I also want you guys to see the new furniture in the entry. 
 I've always admired the benches I see in other peoples entry's but haven't ever tried one in my own.     I spotted this bench being clearanced at Hobby Lobby the other day and fell in love with it.    I was first drawn to the simple lines and of course the white paint!

Neutral Nativity Scene with a Hint of Farmhouse Style


I have a few nativity sets,   and I think the neutral ones are absolutely my favorite.....hands down!    I like to feel calmness when I look at a nativity set and sometimes the really colorful ones don't give me that calm feeling that I am looking for during the holidays.   

The master bedroom is one of my favorite sanctuary spots to hang out in after a hectic day of shopping,  cooking,  decorating,  etc.   so it's kind of my "go to room" to set up a Nativity scene.
