Blue Christmas in the Guest Bedroom

Decorating the newly redecorated guest room for Christmas was such fun.   I wanted to keep it simple, romantic, and light.

The silver tinsel tree is new from Hobby Lobby.
I chose the silver one that looked tarnished.

The pink glittery ornaments are from TJ Maxx

The crocheted ornaments are flea market finds

The keepsake angel topper is from my Christmas exchange partner, Pamela Jean.

The tree skirt is ragged pieces of vintage linens. 
Mama and Daddy, both celebrating Christmas with our Heavenly King.

Lovin’ the shabbiness

Sweet mama looks like a little, wide-eyed baby doll here.

One of the $7.00 (unbelievable!) bottle brush wreaths from Big Lots…

perfect over a lacey, vintage petticoat and shawl.

A chilly courtyard view from the window.

Lion looks like he is putting on his green winter cloak!

The fountain is unplugged for possible freezing temps.
French girl dolled up in feathered finery - Pink and blue, of course!

I hope you don’t mind if we run outdoors for a minute.  You have got to see who was eating breakfast in our yard this morning!
I love him!!!!   He is so little and fat!!!

He heard us talking and glanced at us briefly and continued eating.

He ran off when we opened the door.  I hope he comes back!

Since we are outdoors,  lets look at the Christmas decorations in the back yard.

We hang garland and red bows across the 75+  foot retaining wall in the back yard.  We added the big wreath this year.

  20. Hi Rhonda,
    You've created so many charming vignettes. I especially like the loving touch of including photos of your parents as children. I loved seeing the plump little deer, and the last photo of your home at night is really dramatic! Nicely done.

    Happy Holidays!

  21. So sweet. I love your tree and the framed photos are my absolute favorite.

  22. Rhonda,
    I have a code, and I don't feel good..may I come and stay in your guest bedroom, please? It's so inviting, comforting and charming, that I just had to ask...No? You don't want a code for Christmas? Neither do I.
    Your photos are wonderful, and you know how I love deer...Our deer are all fluffed out,wearing their winter coats...they are grey.
    You have such a touch.

  23. I love the decor you have chosen for your guest bedroom. I'm sure any guests would be thrilled staying there. I think they would especially like seeing the deer in your yard at this wonderful time of year.

    Blessings to you,


  24. Such loveliness has me swooning with happy sighs.

  25. I love your guest room! All the white is perfect against the blue!

    Very pretty!


  26. I just looked at all your decorations. I love that mural in your entry! that's gorgeous.
    wow- your house is just beautiful all decorated for Christmas!!!!!!! I can't imagine how pretty it must be in person!
    Merry Merry!!!!!

  27. I am officially super jealous of you! I LOVE deer and to have that sweet little baby in your yard, wow!! Oh, I would probaly have a happiness heart attack if I saw a baby deer out my window.
    Okay, I've pulled myself together now and also felt I should say something about the lovely guest room, lol! It looks wonderful! Very soft and romantic.
    Isn't Big Lots a great store! You can always find such cool things there for great prices!

  28. Hi Rhonda! I really enjoyed the pics of all the sweet C'mas accents around your home. And the deer . . . how precious!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my place and leaving a nice comment. I look forward to checking out more of your blog.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
