Our media room is basically like a family room.
We call it the media room as we gather there when we have a crowd to watch T.V.
It is a great place to gather as we have a little kitchenette
in that room to serve food and beverages.
There is a fireplace in that room, so there is another mantel to decorate!
Because the T.V. is above the mantel,
the decorations not only need to be of a more simple nature,
I also have to make certain that they do not hinder the T.V. viewing.
We must not miss that important play or that incredible catch!
Garland hung with three country themed ornaments of pretty wool fabric.
A Santa made from a vintage quilt sits on one end of the mantel.
The graduated Santas flank the other side of the mantel.
This Santa by Jim Shore is truly special.
One year my dear friend Ruthie gave it to me for Christmas
and I gave her the same exact thing for Christmas.
We had a great laugh on Christmas Day when we opened our gifts.
This was not the first time that it had happened.
Now Ruthie is with the angels . . . I can hear her sing every day.
This room has a large conversational leather sofa
that is quite comfortable. Leather really isn’t my choice
but so practical for this room and its purpose.
A Borden’s Cheese box holds wrapped gifts that were
part of the many gifts that I wrapped for the Gift Wrapping Ideas post.
The kitchenette is decorated in a vintage 50’s style.
Across from the red diner style table is an area that used to have
an antique pie safe which held many vintage kitchen pieces.
That pie safe is now in the sunroom and this amazing screen door that was
once Mary Alice’s is taking it’s place.
A tree of cotton garland stands beside the door.
A large stocking made from a vintage quilt hangs on a vintage sled
that was always placed on the front porch every Christmas.
The sled is coming in from the cold this year!
The tree has a name. “Lulu” Why Lulu?
Well my blog friend Linda aka Lulu of Lulu’s Musings stated that she loved my tree
and she was not putting up one this year.
(I am thinking because she will be out of town – – – as she is such the traveler).
So Lulu, this tree is for you!!
So that wraps up my Media Room decorated for Christmas.
