~Getting Started~

Who says the bathroom can't get a few festive touches?  Why this was the first room for me to start decorating this year, I'm not sure.  I guess it's because when I finished making all the ornaments out of old book pages and  music sheet paper  I wanted to see how they looked hanging and since I didn't have a tree yet I grabbed this branch and set it inside the white pitcher in my bathroom.

You are going to see a few  pops of red this year in my Christmas decor such as french grainsacks, books and berries all mixed together with fresh greens.  I'm liking the look so far.  What do you think?  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I found some mercury glass clip on birds at my local garden center last month and bought all they had left.  I've also been wanting to make a bird ornament using old french music paper and German glass glitter.  I guess it is fitting to have birds hanging from a branch along with some other paper ornaments, small mirrors and sparkling crystals.

My parents have a lovely birch tree in their front yard and they let me take some of the bark.  I used some of it to cover a few candles and also made some tags I will be using on my Christmas presents this year.

Well, I better get back to decorating and hope to be working on it all weekend.  It's a good time for it since it hasn't been above freezing here for a few days and we are having some snow flurries.  Stay warm!

  23. great idea those delightful musical birds!! I have always wanted a tub that I could have a tray set upon the sides as you have!! I like to read in the tub--but my tubs never have a big enough side on the wall side; they are more flush to the wall.

  25. It is just fabulous. What a wonderful bathroom.
