Hi Sweet Friends!
I am making slow, but steady progress in my Christmas decorating.
How are you all doing?
If you have seen my PINK Saturday post you know I also love pinks and
do one room in my home in those Lovely hues!
But...if I reveal my true inner self...I am a BLUE girl thru and through!
My master bath and bedroom is done in soft blues
and of course pinks! AND my studio is done in a robins egg blue!
Now, our dining room is another story all together
being that it's painted in a very ROYAL BLUE!
When we did this room over 12 years ago. I LOVE this color
then and I still do. I knew that this color would
POP with our wonderful trims the builder put in our home.
So this year I decided to combine my pinks with my blue
in our very formal entry with blues in the dining room
Because I am a decorator at heart (not by training) I have tubs
full of differing colors that I radomly use each year.
I usually change things out for the most part but use staples
like...balls, beads and misc stuff in differing colors.
I uses REDs, GOLDs, Blues and Pinks in my home during Christmas.
Then, when I come up with an idea or plan..well the rest is history! lol
Okay...here's what I did. I have a trio of graduating is sizes primitive trees.
I knew they'd have to go UP, because of my kitties.
A couple of my naughty kitties LOVE chewing on these trees.
Beats me why, but I have to keep these things in mind as I decorate.
My garland up the stair case is another find from over 15 years ago.
I keep the 2 pieces together with their lights and beads
and then tweak it as I put it up. This definitely is a 2 person
jobs so hubby usually helps. But when its all done and lit up
the affect is just dreamy!
I took a few pictures from my Dining Room looking into the Foyer and Living Room.
I pulled out most of my blue tubs but think I might have more I haven't found. And I
thought I was organized, GEEEESH!!! Anyway....
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
My only regret, I wish I could get a decent picture with the blue lights that I
put on the trees! Can't for the life of me get a decent one.
Thanks for letting me share today what i have been up to.
If you don't see me in here for a few more days,
well you will know that I am still finishing up my decorating.
So much for getting an earlier start this year!
PS..I also do Red and Golds..those rooms are next!!!
