and... decorating for the holidays in the bedroom

Steven suprised me with a little holiday cheer in the bedroom. Work has been taxing lately, and it was a happy surprise!

This is the built-in dresser in our bedroom. He cleared off all his usual books and whatnot and added the little pink tree the boys helped me decorate.

I picked up this little pins from Etsy. I thought they looked cute under the tree, but can't wait to leave them up year-round.

I love the gumdrop garland on the tree!

Don't you love genuine patina?

And another of Steven's radios. He is getting quite a collection going. :)

It was a white Christmas at the Cottage of Stone... we got a ton of snow! We were quite happy to have gotten all those wreathes hung before the snow hit. (And Steven did the lights on a semi-warm afternoon.)

I had a great time this year making my own gift tags out of sacks I had lying around. The Victoria's Secret bags made especially pretty tags.

When the tree was lit up at night, the living room was bathed in beautiful pink light.

Steven's mother joined us for Christmas. Even though the dining room is still in chaos, I tried to make it festive. I did the table in cream, silver and hot pink. So much food!!!!
Even little pup Tess joined in the fun in her pink Santa dress.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
Dining room pictures coming soon.
