Simple Touches of Christmas

Hi Friends~
Hope you're having a good first weekend in December.
When I  shared with you my first post of Christmas decor a few days ago,
we were at the front entryway.

Well, I skipped to the second floor and a few simple touches of Christmas
in my guestrooms.

This room is done in shades of white, cream and neutrals.

The bells are from my vintage collection and I love them with all their aged patina.

This Santa is not old, but he sure looks like some from the 40's.

Sitting atop a white pitcher, is this sweet glittery Christmas bird.

Over the summer Mr. LJ  and I took a drive out to a country yard sale near our home.
I found this great old mantel and placed it in this room.
It's been so fun to decorate.

My guests love to stay in this room.

This Santa is a carved wood figure that I painted many years ago.
He has lots of glitter and looks right at home on the old dresser of white.

This rose colored Santa was another I created from a decorative design nearly 30 years ago.
He is made from a 2x4 with attached arms, face and sack on his back.
I sold so many of these over the years but before I ended creating these, I decided to keep two.
I have another in red, but would love to do these again in white.

I love this cross stitch hand created and framed by my dear friend Stephanie.
Love it!

A bowl filled with door knobs and locks instead of ornaments.

All sits in a tray on the breakfast table in this guest room.

Rag Heart Wreath with a small stocking hangs from an old wardrobe.

Sitting on the bed is a creamy suited Santa.

On the built in writing desk I have a tall angel and vintage framed graphic.

My dearest treasure is this darling musical angel.
She was my  mother's and plays Silent Night.
I can still remember when I was a little girl in the late 60's my mother purchasing this little darling
for 3 dollars to display in our home.
She just loved it ~ and so do I for the beautiful meaning and memories.
She has been well cared for and is in excellent condition. 
The  music box still plays beautifully.

I didn't put up a tree in this room this year. 
Just kept it light and simple.

Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy the weekend and see you again soon with more from down the hall.
