~Stairway to a Primitive Christmas Bedroom~

Olde Barn Lantern
with battery operated lights
Milk Can, Old Quilt & Christmas Greens
Runner Sled hung from the banister
Fresh Pine, Old Skates
Red Berried Eucalyptus Garland

Dreaming of Christmas Bedroom
Fresh Juniper tucked in a small Ewer
Off-White Vignette
I love the Santa Box
(got it last year at GW)
Prim Tree
Wooden Santas, Red Bead Garland
Candy Canes, Candle Clips and the rest of my
Antique Ornament Collection
Vintage Childrens' Toys and Books
(I played with the wind up music box when I was a child)
Peg Rack Display
Framed Picture of (adopted) children, Sock Stretchers,
Lil' Girl's Dress & Fresh Pine
Make-Do Cubby Display
Old Family Pictures, Candles and Fresh Greens 

My collections of Wall Baskets hangs above the bed
Simple Sprig of Fresh Juniper added to each
My mom's warm Homespun Quilt, Woolen Blanket,
a Soft Red Throw Blanket layered on the bed
Mirror used as a tray to hold some festive goodies

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, 
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
(((I in my kerchief and Pa in his cap,)))
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

May the Magic of Christmas fill your Dreams,

We are on the Tenth Day of Christmas
