Woodland Christmas

Today I finished decorating my sitting room for Christmas.  I went with a woodland theme for this room.  I updated the mantel by adding a vintage screen in the background.  Now I have one room that I can relax and listen to Christmas music in until after Thanksgiving.

Here is a close up of the inside of the box.
This room is not easy to take pictures of since it more of a passway between the family room and the master bedroom.  I got out my vintage wool blankets and put them on the wicker trunk.  I think I will probably keep these out.  These are the best pictures I could take.  I wish that I could get the whole room in one shot. 



 I love my parents maple desk that they got back in the 40's.  It has a few scratches here and there from all the moving that I have done but some scratch concealer did the trick.  



I am working on the master bathroom today.  We got the curtain rod hung above the bay window so I can get the valances hung.  I am going to get it decorated today also, everything that is but the cabinet nook area since I still don't have my shelves in yet.  I will be posting it in the next few days.

 Check this out.  I bought this CD at Walmart the other day and I got to looking at the cover closely.  The couple on here remind me of Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe.  What do you think?

    1. Thank you. This is the only room that is decorated. I also wait until after Thanksgiving since I host it every year. This room is separate from the family room so you only see it if you are going to the master bedroom. I thought I would at least get a head start since I have so much decorating to do after Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful day!

  7. I decorate my den much like this. Love the woodland theme - warm and inviting. Also many of the items are perfect to carry over through January. I think it is Sean Connery and Janet Leigh :>)))
