Little Bit of Christmas In the Bedroom

Hey sweet friends!

“Christmas Time’s a Comin”….How is that for southern Tennessee talk from a good old Christmas song?  Someone told me recently how much they enjoyed listening to me and my daughter talk because we had such a southern accent.   It used to embarrass me when I was younger for someone to say that.  Now, I wear that accent proudly, y’all.

I LOVE Christmas!  I LOVE celebrating the birth of our precious Savior!  I love spending time with my family and friends.  I love picking out just the right gifts for people I love.  I love looking at my twinkling Christmas tree lights.  I love boiled custard.  I love nuts and bolts cooked just like my nanny used to fix them. 

Boy, could I go on and on.  I won’t though.

I usually don’t put any Christmas décor in my bedroom but decided this year that I had the perfect place for a little tree.

See what I did …

This beautiful little star was handmade by a special friend named Becky from Junk to Joy.  She is one talented and sweet lady.

Isn’t it great how something so simple can bring big pleasure?

I do hope each and everyone of you are feeling  the joy, peace, and love that God so freely gives.

Have a blessed day, friends.

Well, after reading such joy coming from you and seeing what you did with your tree placed in the basin with all that twine etc., I too could go on and on Amy! :)
Oh How I love country.
Have a wonderful day,
Hugs Rosemary...xx
P.S. I hope your Mother is keeping well.

Love your bedroom Christmas decor, girl! And love that the star is your little tree topper! Too cute! You're a blessing gal!

I have somehow managed to get a little bug! UGH! All of us girls are suppose to go wedding dress shopping on Friday! I'm praying that I will be better by then.

It does feel great to really begin to enjoy this time of year. Have a bunch of stuff to get done, but no pressure. Won't allow it!

Love and hugs to you!
And Christmas blessings, too!

This is just lovely! I love the enamel dish pan! It's amazing! I'm a new follower! I love your blog!

Debbie said...

That's just perfect, Amy. I never decorate my bedroom. I think a sweet tree like that would be so pretty.

I love the way you use burlap. I have tried around here, but except for in the fall, I can't get it to look the way I want it to.

Robin said...

It looks so pretty. I love the tiny tree with all the burlap and the enameled bowl.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

So, so, so pretty! I just love your little tree and the framed fabric behind it is the perfect background!
