It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…

After two years of blogging, I don’t believe I have ever mentioned that I have a mantel in my master bedroom.  Years ago, I was driving around Dahlonega and saw this great estate sale.  At that time, I was living in a cabin that measured in at less than 300 square feet – bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room included!  However, I couldn’t pass up the mantel when I saw it.  For $40, I loaded this beauty up and it set in storage until we moved to Sadie Court.  Believe it or not, Rusty installed it for me days after we moved in here, and two weeks ago was the first time I have ever really staged it.  It looks so nice!

The main focal point is a mirror that my dad framed me years ago that I painted blue and my coffee filter wreath.

When I shopped my house, I pulled together all mirrored  pieces and mercury glass to keep the design simple and shiny.  I also used some of Home Depot’s fresh garland ($5.00 on Black Friday) to add a natural element.  Not to mention, my room smells amazing every time I walk in there!

Inside of the apothecary jar are antique ornaments that I found thriftiquing around Dahlonega.  Plus, they tie into my blue theme.

Normally, I just decorate the main parts of our house, the kitchen, living room and dining room, but I always loved going into the old homes in my hometown during their open houses and seeing all of the rooms thematically decorated with a tree and all.  When I thought of extending the decorations into the master bedroom, it was almost as if a light bulb went off.  What hadn’t I thought of this before?!!

What new decorations have you put in your house this year?!
