More Touches of Christmas

I just can't stop decorating!  I've added a few touches
 to the powder room, but I didn't spend any money!

I always have this basket on the counter top but I added a small sprig of fake greenery, a pencil star fish, and a glittered shell (an ornament).

Another starfish and sprig of greenery with berries was added to the basket on the side of the cobalt blue, claw foot bathtub. 

This painted corner table is the perfect spot for my "Grandma Tree".  This little tree is decorated with items from each of our grandmother's homes.  The tiny birds and blue ornaments came from my grandmothers and the lace garland and lace tree skirt came from Hub's grandma's sewing boxes.

The heart shaped rock really belongs to my grandson.  I picked it up on a beach in New England when he was born.  He was only a week or two old and we were up north, helping my daughter and SIL adjust to being first time parents.  My daughter had to get out of the house so we drove out to the rocky coast in New Hampshire to explore.  I found this rock and thought it a perfect symbol of my love for my first grandchild. 


  1. I love seeing all your Christmas treasures displayed. That rock is amazing! What an incredible thing to find it just when a new little love entered your life!

  2. I love that little tree; it's so cute! And the heart-shaped rock is awesome!

  3. That rock is AMAZING!! I hope I can find one of those someday.
