Red Toile For Christmas

Hi Friends, 
Hope you had a nice weekend.

Happy Monday!
I love Mondays and the start to a new fresh week.

We had warm weather on Saturday that quickly turned cool on Sunday
with a little drizzling rain.

Perfect cozy weather to bring in the spirit of Christmas.
Perfect to enjoy the decorations and relax with some Christmas music.

 In my last post, I shared my white and creams shades of neutral guest room with simple little Christmas touches.

Today, before I take you back to the first floor to share my trees and the rest,
I'll show you another room with a few simple touches in my red toile guest room
just down the hall.

I love all colors of toile and it's timeless beauty, but red and black are my favorites.
This room is decorated in red toile and creams with a Waverly fabric design of roses.


Santa's hat was left behind last Christmas.
It looks pretty nice on my metal dress form.
The scarf is very vintage.

 My grandmother crocheted it for me when I was in collage.

Yes I know, that makes me vintage right??



A few red touches and a vintage style Santa.
The lamps were my mothers from the 50's.
They are wood with milk glass and chimney shades.


Waverly drapes coordinate so nicely with the red toile.


A red beaded angel watches over guests during their stay.


This red rose plate is one I painted a few years ago and added the vintage lady graphic.

It reminds me to take time~
 and
 "stop and smell the roses."


A place to relax with a cup of tea in a vintage chair of red plaid.



Another painting I placed in a vintage style frame.




Like my mother and grandmother,
 I love to stitch when I'm not painting and this dresser runner is simply soft red and white.



Sweet Dreams 

and
Christmas Dreams!


I'll be back tomorrow to share one more cozy spot to dream away the holidays.

Thank you for stopping by and letting me share what I love~

Home Sweet Home
and 
The Love of Decorating!

See you soon!

Hi Celestina!

First I want to thank you for your visits and sweet comments on my pleated ornaments. I always appreciate them. I've been preparing for a craft show and everything else got put on hold.

I did a little catch-up reading of your blog this morning. Your Christmas decor is lovely and your house is so charming. I love the entryway and this red and white bedroom is so inviting. I love red and white together too. I hope you have a great week and a Merry Christmas season!

Blessings, Deborah

Strolling through your home is like being in an enchanted fairytale dear Celeste... and you are the beautiful Princess of course!... love this room so much and all of your vintage pieces... the glass lamps that were your mamas are just gorgeous!... and I love all of the little spots you have throughout your home to sit and relax with a cup of tea... and I KNOW why Santa left his hat last year... that way, he has an excuse to come back anytime and get it!... I think he would love to take a little snooze before the "big day" in this stunning room!... xoxo... Julie Marie

Your home looks just beautiful dressed up in these vibrant reds for the holidays! I think I love the dresser runner you stitched the most!

I'm so sorry I haven't been by lately. Surgery on both hands and so much busyness that took 10X too long! :(

Happy Holidays and I will try to visit more, dear friend.
