Christmas In The Bedroom

This is the first year with the new
Craig's List bed at Christmas.
I added lighted garland across the top.
Notice what else has been added?
Yes, that's Lucy. 
 I used the same red and white checked quilt.
 I hung a red and white checked stocking.
 The other side has a quilted stocking.
The quilt set is from JCP.
I skirted the table with a matching sheet.
I added a plaid Longaberger topper and 
changed the pictures for the 4 black framed 
cardinal Christmas cards.
A Lenox cardinal plate on a stand.
A Santa and tree sit on nearby 
Longaberger baskets.
Across the room is the sitting area.
 It has the antique wicker furniture and maple trunk.
Silver tea set, candles and Spode china on an
 embroidered table square that's been in
the family for years.
Free Craig's List louvered doors serve as a 
room divider. I tucked vintage handkerchiefs 
in the slats.
A trash find basket sprayed white is
used as an end table.
Lucy gets a red sweater cover on her pillow.
She loves her little basket by my bed.
Here's the bedroom last year with the
wrought iron canopy bed.
That's the only change.

    I am in love with both versions of your bedroom and, of course, little Lucy!!! How precious she is. I enjoy having my bedrooms decorated for the season, too. I especially love snuggling down under the pretty flannel sheets on Christmas Eve and drifting off to sleep with the softness of the lights glowing from the tree on our bedside table...visions of sugarplums! Lol You did a marvellous job of creating Christmas in your bedroom!

    Happy Christmas and a Glad New Year!

  19. How festive this room is; what else can I say - I always love seeing what you have to show us. Merry Christmas, Rita.

  20. I Love your bedroom period...but decorated for Christmas it is fantastic...I love the Good Night pillow!

  21. I am loving the red and white! Love the whole room, but the quilt and stocking I am drooling over. I am going t check at JCP and see if they still carry this quilt.

  22. Really enjoyed seeing this. Love the combo of the red checks and the plaid table covering. The bed is beautiful; but so was your former bed!

  23. Rita, OMGosh! Your room is fabulous, and look at that cute little "elf" on your bed. I'm loving all the red and white, and your new head board is gorgeous. I'm another one who's checking out JCP to see if they still carry that quilt.
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas.

  24. Your bedroom is gorgeous! The prettiest I've seen at Christmas! It makes me want to move out the treadmill from the corner of my room, and use it as a seating area! Love the cardinal nightstand, too! The Lenox plate is gorgeous! Really like the bedding, too! Merry Christmas!

  25. Oh my goodness! Iwish I could step into the photo and live.

  26. OMG, I just LOVE this!!!!! I want that quilt set, just for Christmas!!! LOL!!! Love the set at the foot of the bed too. XO, Pinky

  27. This room looks like it belongs in a design magazine and home. Too beautiful to mess up! Oh, my goodness it is wonderful. You have done an outstanding job, are you taking reservations for 2012 to help me decorate?
    Your Yorkies are precious, mine is 4 lb. and goes everywhere I do. Don't they have the most delightful personalities?

    Merry Christmas!

  28. Congratulations! Great taste and warmth. Wishing you a blessed Christmas and a healthy, happy and joyful 2012.

  29. Beautiful room, I was just wondering where did you get the pillow that says and to all a good nite?

  30. Hello, I love your bedroom. Just my colors.
    Is the red and white quilt still available from JCP?
