We've Only Just Begun

 It all started with a little white Christmas Tree in a Thrift Store window.   I really don't need another Christmas Tree but after changing my bedroom to Ruffles and soft blues and whites,  I couldn't resist.   I thought I was being rather frugal.   Ha....I needed ribbon, bulbs and more mercury bulbs and hearts of course. It is after all a bedroom tree.   Grand total....well, I must keep that a secret lest my hubby band the thrift store shopping.
 But the beauty of the little tree is the first thing I see when I get up and the last thing before I fall to sleep.  
 I love the mercury glass bulbs.  
 I love the ruffles too.   I got these curtains from my friend Debbie who owns a beautiful shop in St. Cloud, FL called Vintage Soul.   The curtains were meant to have the ruffles on the bottom but they seemed to get lost behind my furniture so I turned them upside down for now.  I am actually thinking of making them like roman shades.   
Everything is becoming merry and bright as we begin the joys of decorating and so I am off to finish the bedroom as I have only just begun.
