Christmas tree decorations


Holiday Hack #1 Use 2 different bulb sizes

Brighten Up a Banister

sometimes, you just don't want people at your PARTY to go upstairs...genius!

Style your stairway with beautifully decorated garland at the base around the spindles instead of the normal railing dressing. The result is stunning and you can actually hold onto the railing while on the stairs.

Paper snowflakes

Doctor Who snowflakes.

Do you decorate your tree with colours in mind or just use all your decorations?!

Holiday Hoobla ~ The Holiday Mantel

Nothing says winter like a lovely roaring fire and a good book all the while cuddled under a blanket!  I currently lack a fire with a mantel although I would like to change that! ;) This week is all about decorating the mantle and fireplace at Christmas!

Dream House ~ Master Bedroom

I will admit that both my current bedrooms, both home and school, fall into the dismal proportions category and have a rather lack of character.  Both because of size and lack of funds. However, I have many great plans for a huge fabulous bedroom one day!!  My bedroom needs to feel warm and bright and comfortable and just fluffy! I like fluffy!! J So here are some bedrooms that I love!
                Also if someone knows how you are supposed to sleep with the fur/blanket all nicely folded at the bottom of the bed please tell me! I love the look of it but hate the weight just on my feet!! Or is it supposed to come off at night? O.o

Don't you love the look of a tufted headboard!!

Romantic draping.

built-in dresser with back that serves as the headboard for the bed. love this open space feel.  Omg need this!!
This last one is my absolute favorite! A beautiful dresser headboard facing a fireplace with full length windows!! Ahhh! I hate the TV though! Bleh bad idea!

What would you ideal master include or not?
