The Christmas Boathouse

                                                            Today, I am sharing more of the
                                                            boathouse decked out for the
                                                           Christmas season.
                                                              The iron bed was a yardsale find as
                                                           everything else in here is ~ even the linens
                                                          are from various thrift shops.

                                                       The boathouse was built by my
                                                       husband and son a few years ago,
                                                      using old windows,doors and some
                                                      old beadboard etc.and since neither
                                                     one of them are carpenters I think they
                                                     did an amazing job!

Love the ambiance of the fireplace.

                                                              Would you like to curl up with
                                                              a book and a cup of tea?

                                                          My red transferware dishes fit
                                                          right in!

                                                      I love this old mirror from a Christmas
                                                     show a few weeks ago.I plan to put a wreath
                                                             It is starting to get dark
                                                            making it ever so cozy!
                                                               Love the glow of candles~so romantic.

                                             Well, I will leave you now in case you want
                                                        to curl up for awhile and enjoy a little nap
                                                       in the Christmas Boathouse.
                                                          Soon, I will show you the little
                                                       boathouse conservatory  newly
                                                       decorated for the season.

                                                                Hope you enjoy your day!

LOVE. I have been looking sooo long for a mirror like this! In fact, hubby and I were scouting again just last evening but I still haven't managed to find one. You are so lucky to have scored that treasure. The photo of the bed in the evening light is gorgeous. And, yes, Andrew and son did, indeed, do a good job!
