Christmas Decor: Bedrooms – French Blue & Linen for Hanukkah

Good day, Everyone!

Today’s post features the images of the French Blue and Linen 60-pc. Ornament Collection with five Bedroom Bedding Collections, again, with beautiful ornaments designed for the celebration of Hanukkah.  I’ve known of Hanukkah for years.  However, I didn’t focus on the fact that Israel’s flag and emblem are beautiful shades of blue!  Since the French Blue and Linen Collection is so gorgeous, I thought it would be super-lovely paired with beautiful Hanukkah ornaments featured today.  By the way, according to Wikipedia, :

“Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday commemorating the re-dedication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar. It is also known as the Festival of Lights and the Feast of Dedication.

The festival is observed by lighting the candles of a candelabrum with nine branches, called a Hanukkah menorah (or hanukkiah). One branch is typically placed above or below the others and its candle is used to light the other eight candles. This unique candle is called the shamash (Hebrew: שמש‎, “attendant”). Each night, one additional candle is lit by the shamash until all eight candles are lit together on the final night of the holiday.[1] Other Hanukkah festivities include playing dreidel and eating oil-based foods such as doughnuts and latkes. Since the 1970s, the worldwide Chabad Hasidic movement has initiated public menorah lightings in open public places in many countries.”

Again, featured below are five (5) gorgeous bedroom bedding collections, the gorgeous French Blue and Linen collection of Christmas ornaments and the gorgeous Hanukkah collection of ornaments.   I think the combination of these collections would make a super-gorgeous Hanukkah-Christmas display!  Enjoy!

Christmas Decor: Bedrooms – Gold & Silver Ornaments

Well it’s good to be back with you, Everyone! I hope you’ve celebrated (or are still celebrating) Valentine’s Day 2018 in a ‘win-win’ way of L-O-V-E!

Today’s post features beautiful bedrooms staged with furnishings and bedding featuring silver & gold!  I’ve selected a gorgeous collection of visually complimentary ornaments.  This week’s exquisite ornament collections are the Gold Foil Set by Frontgate & a beautiful collection by Balsam Hill, including exquisite ribbons.  Both Collections could be displayed on fireplace mantles, wreaths, garlands, trees and other creative spots/things.   The featured bedrooms are, simply, a few of the lovely possibilities.  Let these examples inspire you with ideas of how Christmas staging would look, for your ‘silver & gold’ bedroom(s).

Now, fellow fan of Christmas, imagine the beautiful tree/ornaments featured below, in these featured bedrooms.  In your mind’s eye you can see how lovely the Christmas staging is for both day-time and night.  Imagine enjoying the heavenly ambiance of these rooms!  ‘See’ yourself having a cup of delicious fruit juice with a bowl of nuts during a day when you’re at home, sitting on a comfy chaise with the tree’s lights (on or off), and your favorite tunes playing while you read, do a task or just ‘bliss out’.  For a night, imagine having a cup of warmed milk, honey and a tiny dusting of cocoa as the lights twinkle on (with your timer set) while you journal/write the day’s adventures/events/blessings in my journal and/or watch television.  Now, ‘feel’ the ambiance as you imagine these scenes!  The ambiance is wonderful, isn’t it?  This serene, blissful Christmas ambiance can keep us mindful of Cristes Maesse and what He means to our daily lives, all year.  I think it’s rather heavenly.

I hope you enjoy the images featured in this post, receive great ideas for you space(s) and have a heavenly week with delightful adventures & other blessings you desire (even as you handle life’s challenges along the way).

Christmas Decor: Modern-Rustic Luxe Cabin Beauty

Hello, Everyone and “Welcome to February 2018!”  Let’s start our February celebrations of Christmas, together, right now!

Today’s post features a gorgeously luxe cabin’s interior and exterior Christmas decor!  The beautiful Christmas decor staging of the exterior and interior is an example of the gorgeous possibilities for your luxe cabin’s Christmas decor.  The decor staging that you see in these photos gives you an idea (or an additional idea) of how Christmas staging would look, there.  My favorite decor features in the photos below, are:

    • the wreaths on the front doors
    • the statues with bows
    • the topiary Christmas trees
    • the rustic garland over the fireplace mantle
    • the decorations on the Christmas tree beyond the antler chandelier
    • the garland-wreath combination on the balcony’s railing
    • and the garland wrapped over and around the exterior beam and posts/columns

Speaking of the beautiful photos below, the photographer has given us several views of the great Christmas decor staging to admire.  I’ve imagined enjoying the heavenly ambiance of the exterior and interior, during the daytime and at night!  I can ‘see’ having a cup of warmed milk, honey with a tiny amount of cocoa along with delicious popcorn (popped in fragrant coconut oil, with a sprinkling of sea salt and turmeric) during a day or night that I’m there. I’d enjoy sitting on this beautiful porch in my parka while:

  • snow is quietly falling,
  • I’m sipping my not-too-hot cocoa, eating popcorn,
  • and appreciating the glowing Christmas lights.

The ambiance would be glorious! Of course, as you may know by now, the serenity and bliss of this type of Christmas decor inspires me to remember blessings and the relevance of Cristes Maesse, all year. It’s a bit of Heaven on Earth.

Thank-you for joining me for this post! As always, I hope you enjoy the post and “Have a heavenly week with fabulous adventures & other good you desire (even as you handle life’s challenges along the way).”.”

 

True Love is A Reflection

“My brothers and sisters, true love is a reflection of the Savior’s love.
In December of each year we call it the Christmas spirit.
You can hear it. You can see it. You can feel it.”
