It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Another transformed room. AAAAH! This was our laundry room/morning room a couple of months ago. I've always loved this room however, it's never really been decorated like I wanted. The washer/dryer are behind the bi-fold doors, so it can be used as a funtional morning room or office. As you can see from the picture below I used to have my desk in there. This is where I had my desk top computer until it bit the dirt and I purchased a lap top.

This is what the room looks like today. I LOVE IT!!!! When I found my $50 dollar cabinet at Lucky's I ditched the desk and started adding things to the room that I already had. When Christmas started rolling around I thought it would be nice to add a some Christmas to it. I don't go all out decorating every room for Christmas and I thought this would be a nice touch for the back part of the house.

And here's Mr. Snowman, isn't he cute, just look at that sweet face. I bought him a couple of weeks ago for 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby - $8.


Here's my Lucky cabinet (still needs something on the shelves behind the glass doors).


And looky here.....aren't these the cutest presents and they look mighty cute on top of those candlesticks I bought in LA! The presents were on clearance at Cato's. Who would have ever thought candlesticks could be used in so many ways (remember, I had ceramic pumpkins on them at Halloween).

I bought this cute plate last year at Khols for around$4 I think. I just love the little snowmen. I think they look alot like Alvin and myself!



I love this ornament. I won it a bunko a few years ago.

And of course the most important thing. A picture of our pride and joy.

Sweet little stinkers.


And all the stockings were hung by the chimney with care. This is what you do if you don't have a fireplace. Thanks Kirklands for your great ideas! Love that store!!!


This has nothing to do with Christmas, but momma bought me this sign from Hobby Lobby of course, for my birthday. I love what it says.......as matter of fact I came real close to naming my blog Live, Laugh & Love.


This is looking from the back door.


Oh, and my little tree was $10 at Luckys.

And that's my cute laundry/morning room!

Ok, I'm feeling real guilty about my laundry/storage/extra bathroom now. It is jam-packed full of stuff because I have no storage!

I love your snowmen. Snowmen have always been my decorating favorites (oh, I love Old Timey Santas, too).

Your working those candlesticks too, girl!

(btw....Linda and I aren't related except in our hearts. She's like a sister to me. Lots of people say we look alike, which I take as a compliment because I think she's beautiful.)

Hi Becky! Thanks for stopping by my post! I love everything about your room, and just the other day I held the same Mr. Snowman in my hands at Hobby Lobby. I wanted him so bad but put him back because I made myself promise that I wouldn't buy any Christmas decorations this year.:O( Believe me it has been the hardest thing I've had to do this year. Thanks and again and I hope you have a fun and blessed holiday season.

Hello Becky, I saw where you came to visit me so I wanted to come over and say thank you. I love meeting new friends. Your decorations are so pretty, I love the stocking hanger. Kirklands is my favorite store too. But, I sure wish we had a Hobby Lobby in our area. I dearly love that store.
Come visit anytime, I'd like to get to know you better.

Hugs,
Chris
