Christmas Ideas for a Guest Bedroom

Hello all, and happy Monday to you. I had a great day on Thanksgiving spending time with family and friends. I hope you did too. The Christmas season is in full swing, and boy am I excited! This week I have a guest bedroom makeover that will make your holiday guest want to extend their stay. Read on.......          Each year I try to incorporate touches of Christmas in every room. This is how I decorated my orange and brown room and it's been a big hit with my holiday guest.         Touches of Christmas were added to the curtains and the curio.         Here, bows were used as an inexpensive alternative for tiebacks.         This bow used as a tieback is a simple but elegant touch you can use in any room of your home. Be creative it doesn't have to be a bow, you could use ornaments, florals, lollipops,candy canes, or whatever you like.         The curio displays one of my favorite ornaments, and gifts that I have bee

Happy Thanksgiving

    Have a wonderful day!   2 your home,   Lory

A Winter Wonderland

Hello and happy Monday. I know that this week is going to be a very busy week for most of us, because Thanksgiving is just a few days away. And Friday will quick off  the Christmas season and boy am I excited!..... Today I have a transformation that I think you are going to love.           This is a picture of my office and I can describe it in to words HOT MESS , but take a look at how I transformed it (office) into a Winter Wonderland . ENJOY!         The first thing I did was wrapped the door. I enjoy doing this because it's quick and oh so simple .         Next, I brought in lots of gold and white fabric and bows. The wreath is several floral sprays that were formed into a circle. The bow was added to cover where the sprays were connected. I love how it turned out.           I found this gold and white fabric at Walmart several years ago it is one of my favorite fabrics to use during the Holiday Season.       Can

It's beginning to look a lot like .....

Okay, Okay, I hate to break it to you but Christmas is less than six weeks away. I know we haven't celebrated Thanksgiving yet but it's time to get the Christmas ball rolling.  I have a really simple project to get you in the mood if you aren't already, but before we get started you have to see my granddaughters Christmas Tree.         This is Zsa Zsa"s girl, isn't she cute ? She is only three years old and she decorated her Christmas Tree about three weeks ago. In addition, she has already made her Christmas list. Her excitement is so contagious it puts me in the Christmas spirit. Now for the project.....        Every year I decorate my interior doors to make them look like wrapped gifts . I found this peacock ribbon at Hobby Lobby last year for 50% off and I really really liked it, so I decided to use it for this project. Here's what I did to achieve this look. I started by unwinding the ribbon from the spool and then I stapled it

A look at what's been going on lately.

Hello everyone and Happy Monday, I hope your weekend was great. It has been a very busy past few weeks for me. Lets see there was Halloween.....      And speaking of Halloween, this is Zsa Zsa"s girl ( my grandbaby) she was so excited about her costume that I just had to post this pic. She is the cutest little cat I know. (ahhhhh)           We also celebrated my youngest 18th birthday. My how time flies.         Can you believe that this is the same kid?  Well, it is and I am one PROUD Momma! We Love You G. There were several things that went on last month, but these two events were the most memorable to me.          Since we had such a hectic month My husband and I spent Sunday afternoon at Historic Bok Tower Gardens taking pictures and spending some much needed quality time together.           I love this quote By Edward W. Bok, the founder of Bok Tower Gardens.          That's me, animal print blouse a
