This post is a tad late…since we took these pictures about a month ago, but we wanted to share them with you anyway before the Christmas season is all the way over. I/we like to stretch Christmas out for as long as we can
Every year, Leah and I go ’round and ’round as you may remember from last year’s post I like change, and she is happy with our already ‘perfect’ arrangement of the room. She says it is perfect, but I keep telling her that there are more perfect ways out there for us to find. So far we’ve found four perfect ways I must admit though, there were times when the bed was cock-eyed, the vanity was blocking the door, and I had just moved the bookcases for the 20th time [slight exaggeration], that I wondered if Leah was right, and we should just stick with our previous ‘perfect’ arrangement
All of us girls always make how we’ve decorated our rooms a secret…and even the boys got in on it this year (which was very cute!) Those of us who share rooms close the door, clean everything up and rearrange and decorate it, and then we have a ‘showing’ at nighttime complete with candles, Christmas lights, and music We took these pictures the night of our ‘open house’…or is that, ‘open room’?!
This year Leah and I set a record…we did it all in ONE day! We had a good incentive, because our friends were coming over and we didn’t think they’d want to stay in a topsy-turvy room
We were happy with the way this turned out…a new way to put our mirror, and it kind of ‘opens up’ the room.
Remember the chair Leah recovered last year?!
We love it, and have been using it a lot…especially when we were doing all of our Christmas sewing Though we did find out that it gets rather hard when you sit on it for hours at a time!
We love the look of the lights on glass. The cake plate was my great-great-grandma’s
This year we didn’t have to sneak outside under cover of darkness to get the beehive bookcases without Susannah and Cassia knowing We did decide to separate them, though. They are so handy and versatile, not to mention very farmgirl-ish and ‘vintage’ looking.
