Sweet Christmas Dreams

This year I've keep my holiday decorations to a minimum in my room by adding just a touch of sparkle to my normal red and white color scheme.
The bench at the end of the bed holds one of my favorite quilts and a basket of extra pillows.

I added a bowl filled with vintage ornaments to the basket for some sparkle.

Above the bed I've recycled my glitter house display from years past.  I love it so much I haven't done much to change it.  You can read more about it here if you'd like to look at more photos of the houses.

On my bedside table, a simple lantern, a vintage clock and sprig of greenery add a little holiday cheer.

On hubbies dresser I arranged a grouping of flameless candles wrapped in bakers twine to add a touch of red.

I love to use silver coaster's for my pillar candles.  They are the perfect size and add just the right amount of tarnished metal to the mix.  I have to say I'm really enjoying having the candles in my room.  I have the timers set to come on at eight and two so I have a pretty glow in my room all night long.  They are the best type of night light ever.

On my dresser, I've placed a little something special just to make me smile.

The reindeer and sleigh are a new purchase which I was excited to find.  The reindeer is so cute even though at this angle the red eyes are sort of freaky, I swear it's not so bad in person.

The sleigh is filled with tiny bottle brush trees and a star my daughter glittered for me.

The trees I bleached and glittered myself.  I thought it would be fun to try silver glitter instead of my normal white that I use.  Truth be told, I'm on the fence about whether I like them or not.  Since I made them I figured I'd better use them and now I like them more - sort of - maybe.

Hope you all have a fantastic day,
