Christmas Wishes

Every year, it seems to come quicker.  It's here before I know it.  It's all of the sudden nearly mid-December.  Christmas is coming quick this year!  When I (reluctantly) put my tree up this year, I left it bare for a while trying to decide how I wanted it to be decorated this year.  And while it was bare and the pretty white lights twinkled and I really thought I would leave it that way, my eyes turned to the tree skirt.  It needs a pretty little, simple tree skirt made of linen or perhaps burlap.  Then what did my wandering eyes appear, but a simple tutorial for a pretty little ruffled skirt found here.   I think that this would be just right.

Drop cloths make great curtains according to Layla of The Lettered Cottage.  And cheap too.  After seeing her last bedroom re-do, I'd have to agree.

 I want this room!  I wonder if this room would translate to my tiny little "master" bedroom.  I look at those bookcases and see not only storage, but pretty places to display.  I miss not having room to have any displays.

And since I am yearing for a natural Christmas this year, I saw this banner on Etsy that I thought was beautiful. 
Clever, clever talented people!
