Finally Finished, now if only the weather would cooperate so we could finish outside!

Living Room Tree

New Ornaments in Red and Gold I picked up this year

Pretty much obsessed with this wide velvet ribbon
I picked up from North Pole City, unfortunately I had my
husband go to the front to pay for it while I looked around,
he was not happy with the price, but it is worth every
penny!  Wish you could see the bling, it looks like
little diamonds and really sparkles!
First year to have the TV on the mantle,
so left me very little room on each side for
decorations.  This is what is on the left side

I've had the tall gold candle holders
in the garage for a while now, so I made
Christmas topiaries with them.
The ribbon in the garland I bought about 6 years
ago from Hobby Lobby.  Wish I had bought more
since I can't find it anywhere!  It's one of my favorites!

The skinny tree in the foyer

A light up snowman that made a great tree topper!
Ceiling in the foyer

Foyer table

Hallway decorating, I really don't
like the little sign in the middle, I might
take it down, it just doesn't have
a home yet.
The entrance to my Laundry Room

More hallway decorating

It's beginning to look like Christmas! Actually has been for weeks now....but I'm almost finished!

Starting with the Dining Room, I painted a dresser and
turned it into a buffet for the dining room.  It was so nice
having so much space to work with this year!  I'm
keeping the Dining Room and Foyer in a whimsical theme.
I had originally decorated this tree with gold, black, feathers,
pretty crosses, etc., but this look makes me smile, plus it's
fun for my younger 2 kids.

 Bought this little musical animated Gingerbread house
from Lowes a few years ago, my kids so look forward
to me getting this down from the attic!

 This is what I've done to the Hallway, going
for a more sophisticated look, using a lot of black
frames and sconces I use year-round.  The black iron
deer I found at a thrift shop for $2! 
I found these Christmas cardboard cutouts
at The Dollar Tree.  I placed scrapbook paper and fabric
behind them and it has turned out one of my
favorite things.  So cheap, too! 

 This is in my Living Room, again trying to keep
with a more sophisticated theme.  I use LOTS of gold, red
and black but am introducing a little lime green here and there.

These tin trays I also found at Dollar Tree,
I spray painted them black, glued scrapbook paper
inside of them and hot glued an ornament.
Super inexpensive project! 

Another tin tray sprayed gold and embellished.

I had this open back frame.  I usually have
a gold "D" in the middle.  For the Holidays
I added some super chic fabric in black and gold
behind it and hung this ornamental stocking
that I have had for years in the middle for
some instant framed art.

My QUEENdom Revealed!

 My Daughter help me spruce up this black folding screen that I didn't
know what to do with.  It will be hung flat on the wall when my husband gets
around to doing it :)  Below is the finished result:
 I did some faux painting and stenciling....I wanted every
square to look different, and of course added bling!
 I decopauged scrap booking paper and added
nail head to trim to this square
 My bedside table
 Hubby's bedside table...and yes, he is just thrilled!
 Headboard I made with ALOT of help from by husband
it really weighs a ton!  I made a bedskirt with the extra fabric.  Bedding took 6
months to find.  Thanks Target!  What a bargain....
 Below is a leather bench I reupolstered and
a mirror I painted white and distressed.  The dresser (also below)
and mirror set were a funky brown - UGLY!  I bought
it at Good Will for $28.30!
