Peeks of the Guest Room and Christmas Tree

Dear Readers,

Today, I thought I would give you a couple of peeks of the Guest Room

and the Christmas Tree.

Christmas tree? Yes, Christmas tree!

I have to start very early due to my schedule.

I must say it is going to be a bit different this year.

The full reveal will be on November 21st so stay tuned.

But first let’s start with a couple of sneak peeks of the Guest Room.

This Week’s Happenings

This week’s happenings have been a whole lot of packing and moving.

I am sure you are not surprised!

Yesterday was our Anniversary.

I was surprised with a beautiful bouquet of flowers

that my hubby managed to sneak in without my knowledge

and surprised me with them when I walked into the kitchen early in the morning.

I posted it on Instagram/Housepitality Designs

We are two crazy people trying to move our things into the rental house

that going forward I shall call the Berry Patch House.

Blush in the Guest Room and A Winner

The Guest Room is Blushing? Or is it Bashful?  The Steel Magnolias would know!

Today, there is Blush in the Guest Room and A Winner!

When I was in Florida, a trip to HomeGoods to get something for my sister

yielded several things. A tablecloth that I used in my Floral Friday post,

a quilt for my sister, two pink or should I say blush pillows, and more.

Today, you will see how two pink/blush pillows and more, gave the guest room a bit of a refresh.

My Christmas Guest Room and a Beautiful Tree

My Guest Room is always simply dressed for Christmas.

Yes, you read that right . . . simply . . . I can do simply at times!

However, this year that is not the case as I added a grand tree in the Guest Room.

The tree took on a 12 Days of Christmas theme with a Southern Traditional look.

So let’s take a look at My Christmas Guest Room and a Beautiful Tree.

It’s All In The Details

When we were building our home, I told my builder that I was all about the details.

What I meant about the details was that I wanted a great amount of trim work,

architectural details . . . without breaking the bank . . . was that possible?

What makes a house shine with its own piece of jewelry, is the details. . .

that scarf around your neck, the earrings that frame your face . . .

It’s all in the details.

Guest Room Refresh

While I was eliminating a few large items in the Guest Room,

and doing some general de-cluttering and staging.

I could not help but think if I should refresh the room

with Summer decor? Or should I just do a Guest Room Refresh? Refresh I did.

 When packing up some pillows, I kept a pillow aside,

knowing I would use it in one of the rooms for the summer.

A faux grain sack pillow, Summer House.

French Door Love. What Were We Thinking?

As my hubby and I pour over house plans with one in particular,

we discovered that we definitely are not only downsizing in square footage,

but downsizing in the amount of windows and french doors.

We have French door love. What were we thinking?

Yes, what were we thinking when we installed 7 sets of french doors in this house.

We were thinking that they bring in so much light and are just beautiful.

A Mother’s Day Letter, A Tribute to My Mom with Balsam Hill

Years ago, as Mother’s Day was approaching,

I was thinking about my Grandmother . . . my mother’s mother.

I never met her. She passed away when my mom was just 16 years old.

I have always dreamed about how it would be like, to have spent time with her,

to have her tell me stories of my mom, when she was a young girl.

So I sat down one day and wrote her a letter.

A Mother’s Day letter, a tribute to my mom.

The Guest Room Bath Changes and Day 99

While I was doing some things in the Guest Room Bath,

I realized that I did not show you some of the Guest Room Bath changes

that were done a few months ago! Better late than never!

I realized that, when I was removing many personal sized soap, shampoos, etc.

from 2 drawers in the vanity,

to accomplish my 99 items for donation or trash.
