In our Media Room, I usually have a tree that is specifically designed
for my granddaughter each year.
It has always been themed with something that she particularly loved during the year . . .
~ ~ like the year she was into Tinkerbell and dressed as her on Halloween.
However, this year, we placed a small tree . . . a very small tree in her room. . .
~ ~ the space that she has in our house in which she has requested more pink be added.
I did not plan a tree in the media room this year; however, I could not help myself!!
The nutcrackers were placed in my hubby’s office in years past.
I decided to give them a new home this year.
I combined red glass ornaments and this great Merry Christmas garland
along with the nutcrackers.
I so remember when the large nutcracker by the tree was much taller than my granddaughter.
It rather intimidated her in the early years . . . but she loves it now.
Placed a quilted tree skirt that I have used for so many years in the past.
I did not use this tree skirt in the past couple of years as it did not coordinate with the
theme of the tree . . however, it’s perfect this year and it brings me joy as my dear friend
Ruth made it for me many, many years ago. Memories of her are not only in my heart, but
in many things around my home, like the pretty fabric tree in the sunroom.
Moving around the room the Christmas decor is light and fun.
Like these Christmas vehicles taking home the tree.
And large comfy pillows to snuggle with while watching those “happily ever after”
Now moving to the other side of the room where the TV is over the mantel . . .
It is a challenge to decorate this mantel . . . as well as my other mantel.
I can only place larger items on end of the mantel . . .
The lanterns are embellished with poinsettia patterned ornaments.
Icy wooden trees with Santa on a Moose . . .a gift from my friend Linda after a trip to
Wyoming when we were on constant Moose Watch! . . . and saw one on the last day of the trip!
Always have to keep it pretty simple so that TV watching is not compromised!
There are also lots of games and books in the room.
Vintage games and books in a vintage wooden crate that came with the Boys and Girls books!
A great find!
Vintage pieces on top of the pie safe in the kitchenette with my craft show finds
from many years ago. A quilted Santa made from vintage quilts and blocks with bent metal
letters and hand carved whimsical symbols of winter.
I wish you all a most wonderful weekend filled with great holiday activities whether it is
battling the crowds at the mall or spending time with your loved ones enjoying your
family traditions of the season.
As for me, I will be finishing my shopping, attending a birthday party of a lovely
young lady and a Christmas party with “the team”.
And one last thing….I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to our dear friend Scott . . .
