Welcome to my Media Room finally decorated for Christmas.
I made an effort to scale down the decor this year in this room.
The Fireplace and TV..
My motto this year ~ keep it simple and I think I did.
The Santa on the left with my “clearance sale tree” and vintage iron star.
The Santa on the right ~
The driftwood piece on the hearth embellished with gold pinecone ornaments.
A view into our little kitchenette ~
A vignette on top of the pie safe
The hubby had collected vintage Coca-Cola items..
And this calendar is brought out every year..
This Santa is very special ~ ~ it was given to me by my dear friend who passed away.
~ ~ Ruth and I called each other on Christmas day a few years ago and laughed so hard . .
~ ~ ~ ~ til we cried, as we gave each other the same Christmas gift!..
We have done that a couple of times in the past ~ I miss her laugh and her spirit.
A tree that is left for my granddaughter to decorate for her own.
A “little bird” to “watch over us”
My felted wool Santas that I made at Crafty Chicks a few years ago..
Another one of my vintage quilted Santas ..
~ ~ really have to attend the McIntosh Fair in Florida again..they have fabulous vendors
~ ~ ~ ~ such as the vendor that makes these great Santas from vintage quilts.
The tray on the ottoman dressed for the holidays..
I have several Nativity Sets, but this is my favorite . .
~ ~ handmade clay pieces from Guatemala.
I always had a 7 foot tree filled with my collection of Hallmark ornaments..
~ ~ but instead a small pine tree is in its place this year.
The tree sits atop these vintage picnic baskets.
Placed my “Santa Moose” (a gift from my friend Linda as a remembrance of our Jackson Hole trip)..
~ ~ and a lantern.
Thank you for bearing with me on this very long post ~
~ ~ trying to get these all done by the end of the week…
And on that note ~ ~
