“Pink”??? The Captain repeated.
“Well, not just pink” I said as I stuffed a mouthful of lettuce salad into my mouth.
I stared at his face hoping for a positive reaction.
Encouraged, I went on….
“There will be pale blue, white and a little gold too”!
The Captain shrugged and said….
“I trust your decorating, pastels sound interesting”.
And with that, I began the hunt for pastel ornaments for the tree in our master bedroom.
I have to preface this with the fact that each year we put up 9 trees, which include one 12 foot tree, four 9 foot trees, two 7 1/2 trees, and two 5 foot trees and they each are a themed, bright colored tree…other than the living room tree which is a flocked all white tree. I believe each of my rooms should have a tree.
I was inspired by a tree I had seen decorated in pastels in a magazine at the doctor’s office and an idea had been born to use pink, blue, white and gold.
And I love it.
The look was so easy because the Master bedroom is mostly white, so the addition of any color gives the room a different look.
I also found a pink deer as well as a snow globe with pink and blue trees that somehow found themselves in my basket.
The pictures really don’t do this pastel tree justice, especially since it was a dreary day with very little sunlight. I didn’t bring out any additional lighting which I probably should have done.
I do love the soft glow in our bedroom that this tree provides as I sit in my favorite chair reading or catching up on a sports game. (by the way my Kansas Jayhawks are unbeaten…so far! Just sayin’ RCJH
I couldn’t resist adding the two little lambs which represent the reason for the season. As you know Jesus is the Lamb of God.
John 1:29… The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
Before I go, I have another confession to make.
I LOVE little houses and villages.
I have collected all sizes and shapes and will be sharing tablescapes and vignettes all during December using villages.
But for a taste of what I will be sharing…I want to show you part of my Dickens Village.
I LOVE Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
Here is Scrooge and Marley’s Counting House.
If you look closely, you will see Scrooge at his desk.
And this is Scrooge’s house.
And here is the past, present and future dancing around in Scrooge’s house. I love to watch the moving characters.
And my favorite is of course Tiny Tim and his family, The Cratchit’s!
This house is a bit in need of repair which is so endearing.
I love the Tiny Tim on his dad’s shoulder figurine.
If you look close, you can see the family inside preparing the food.
I have just started setting the village up…there is more to add and some things to “hide”…like wires, but I wanted to share the beginning of this Dicken’s Village I love so much.
Thank you for visiting the beginning of my Christmas Decor.
Do you like pastels for Christmas?
More to come.
