Christmas Bedding

This year I have decided to really do Christmas decorating on the farm in a big way. I have decided to finally do what I have always longed to do....make up each of the beds in a Christmas theme. My lavender guest room presents quite a challenge. After searching high and low for a quilt that would blend well with the lavender and also with Christmas, I gave up the search. There just is not a lot of Christmas quilts to be found, and none in the right colors. Since I don't have enough time left to make my own quilt, I settled on a loden green coverlet and I will accessorize the bed with pillows of the right colors. I started digging through my fabric stash and found some Santa squares and some fabric and set to work making pillows. This pile of bedding and pillows will transform my shabby chic lavender bedroom into a shabby Christmas room in a couple of weeks.
Glittered Putz houses and mercury glass will complete the transformation.
This pillow will find a home on the chair in that room.

Love the ideas for the room. I looked all over for something for the bed too. Maybe something in lavender and green for next year. I'll keep looking.
