~My sister, Suzette did the Polar Bear Table~
again, imagine all the candles are lit.
Suzette's son said he'd tried to pick up his kids toys at her house, but couldn't find the toy box...
She tapped this wooden box while chuckling, " Yeah, here is the toy box!"
~ Nothing is safe around us! We definitely love to repurpose!~
& nothing else would have displayed the wreath so perfectly.
Mostly the theme that ran throughout the room was
song sheets and polar bears...
keeping with the neutrals made it seem peaceful,
even with being filled from floor to ceiling.
Which, I've stated, "Floor to Ceiling" was my goal!
Check out those lovely paper flowers!
The table had been a blond 80's sofa table,
bought at a Goodwill store for 3.99.
It had some glass on top that didn't fit, nor belong...
Sandra fixed it up with bead board and distressed white paint.
Suzette made the flowers and I dyed, cut, and with the help of Suzette's grand kids
glued hundreds of Christmas song sheet chains.
They are so perfect to hide cords, along with keeping our theme highlighted throughout the room.
The Santa is available at the Victorian Lady Tea Room.

Now, more details...
One day, I was bored making plain chains, so I made one with chains hanging down and then I saw the perfect spot to put it. Everything just found the right spot, it seemed!
Even the carolers & Santa have song sheets!
little birdies on the lamp
These acorns are huge.
Suzette's grand daughter gathered them from her yard. Reminding me again, nothing we can make ever beats
Years ago, my mom collected this twig tree, from someone's yard. In a "prior life" they were shrubs, maybe? She did have around four of them. I have always loved them. We hung a single bird from a branch, with some mercury glass ornaments on the plant stand.
Love the horse Suzette repainted...
Do y'all think horses are a new trend?
Just wondering. I'm always curious to see what might be marketed next...It's a fun guessing game trying to spot the next trend. So, I'll predict horses, lol. It's all silly, really.
Nothing was safe from the decoupage, bling or the song sheets!
The whole White polar bear scene
looked as if it would be cold to the touch...
the woodsy elements cozied it up.
last pic, but certainly not the least sentiment
I'm joining the party~
Vintage Inspiration Friday!
We did the whole place in shades of White, with some neutral ~ nature and rust...lol, isn't rust everyone's neutral...
~come on!to the White Party!
Even though it was mostly white, the room was very glittery and festive!
