Guest Bath and Office Ready For Christmas

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week with our families and even got in some Black Friday shopping! My mom and I have never gotten up early and hit the stores, but it was fun! We got up at 4 and were at our first store by 5am. We hit Starbucks at 7:45 and were home by 7:50 am. It was great! Below is a picture of part of our haul. We got everything we set out to get (plus a little more). My favorite find was the $9.00 vacuum from Walmart. What was your favorite find?

I'm so behind on my blog reading but I plan to catch up today. I can't wait to see every one's Christmas decorations! Here are some pictures of my guest bathroom and office. I did not do too much in these rooms this year.

An old looking glittery Santa.

Here are those glass things (?) that I change out for the seasons. Right now they have some sort of red berries in them.

I love this bird picture that my aunt gave me a couple of Christmas' ago. I just added some greenery underneath.

Here is that picture frame I got at War Eagle this year. It is in our office.

On the desk I put some Santa candlesticks and an old looking rocking horse.
I will be by your blogs today and will catch up on my comments soon. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! Let me know if you got some great Black Friday deals!

Everything looks so pretty. I wasn't about to go out on black Friday. I'm not that brave! LOL!

duchess said...

No Friday shopping here but I'm glad you found some great deals.
The office & bathroom look great.

Jennifer said...

I know the white frame isn't Christmas, but I love it! Do you remember where you got it?

My best find was at Home Depot. My girlfriend was in the checkout lane about to pay $60 for a fire proof security safe for important papers when the sales clerk said, "You know, if you are approved for a Home Depot account you can get that safe for $10." Let's just say I couldn't have ran any faster to get me one of those safes. $60 safe for $10!!

Jennifer said...

I didn't get out but it looks like you found a great deal! I love the table in the office with the frame and snowman on it. Super cute! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

Jennifer said...

Everything looks great! I love the picture of the old door and the bird.

I am hoping to get mine posted this week. I have a hodge podge of Santa(s) throughout my house...nothing fancy but warm and inviting.

Great job on the Black Friday finds...I didn't go out either. I went on Wednesday and Saturday...got 50% almost everything I bought.

Looks so great! I can't wait to see the big reveal of your tree! BTW, I love the dress or top you are wearing in that picture in the frame you got from war eagle! So cute!!!

Alex and Jill said...

You got some good stuff! I always love going out with my Mom and Sis the day after Thanksgiving.

Bathroom & Office look festive! I'm still working on my decorations but will be posting pics soon. Are you going to post yours on BooMama's Christmas Tour of Homes this year? You should...info is on my sidebar.

Have a great week!

At Home In Georgia said...

You were brave to get up and to get out there so early on Black Friday. You sure made out though.

That bird picture is very pretty.

I need to to something Christmasy in my bathroom now. Enjoy

Em @ Bunch of Scrap said...

Awesome haul and very cute decorations! My favorite Black Friday find was the Cupcake Maker for my daughter, 10 bucks off and there were only 4 left when I got to the shelf at 5am!

Joanna said...

It looks so pretty....all of it! *smiles*

We didn't Black Friday shop this year but we did last and vowed that we would never again unless it was something that we just had to have.

Jules from "The Roost" said...

Just the right touches! I especially like the old looking Santa in you bathroom. I am trying to catch up today too! :)

Mandi said...

I love seeing all of your decorations! They are beautiful!!!

Tami said...

Looking a lot like Christmas! Love the santa candle sticks.

Alyce said...

it all looks good.. It looks like Santa puked Christmas decorations all over my living room floor. I can't get in the mood to get it done. I need lots of new stuff. I have a wrap around front porch and every year we do the garland and bows on it. This year I want to do something different, but can't decide. Problem is I just need more decorations for inside too. I have a big pile of stuff that I am going to take to the thrift store too. I do have the tree up..but no ornaments yet..I didn't shop on Black Friday..yikes!!! I did order myself some new red toile kitchen curtains though..that I'm excited about !

Leigh said...

Looks fabulous!

AJ said...

I so wanted to get those same trees at Walgreens!! My best deal of the day was the Schick Intuition razors for 99 cents and Limited too had everything in the store buy one get one free! Got lots of goodies for my girls. Love your decorations:)

Ally0005 said...

I so love the bird picture. How pretty. Your house is lovely.
I'll be sharing my Christmas decorations on Thursday.

Chris said...

I love it, Shannon. It's the perfect touch in little spots that make the difference to me. Not too much, but not too little. Good job!

Lacy said...

I love the cute decor. I love your vacuum...I should have gotten one!!!!! I got a Cricut Expressions for $199!!!!

'The H Family' said...

you done good girl!! i'm jealous...i so wanted to do some black friday shopping but we were on the road. cracks me up...cuz i am planning to get some trees just like the ones you got from kohls....where'd you find yours? also, where'd you get that antique rocking horse? that would be so cute in one of the nurseries...we got some catching up to do!! i'll call sooooooooonnnn!!!

a boy a girl and a pug said...

no deals for me this year...but way to go on a great vacuum deal. Love the frame!!

the undomesticated wife said...

No shopping for me. I was sound asleep in a nice warm bed while you were out braving the crowds. LOL! But it looks like you got some good deals!

I'm still putting up my c-mas stuff. I got 9 of my 10 trees up before we left town for Thanksgiving. I'm going to put up the last tree this evening. It's the "main" tree, and it's the largest, so it takes FOREVER. Looks like you've gotten a lot done!

bec4 said...

It's looking good-- I love the bird picture!

The Graves' House said...

your decorations are looking great. i didn't get out on black friday but hubby stop by office max on his way to work for me. he picked up this great brother labeler for me for $10. i'm so obsessed with everything having a label - i know it's strange:)

Sarah said...

No super great finds like your vacuum but I did get a digital frame for about $50 off the original price for someone.

Your house looks great, I really like the rocking horse.

Tausha said...

I love the pics of the haul. I can't take pics of mine. I have little snoopers!!!Don't you just love the thrill of the hunt for the sales!! I love it!!! I wanted one of the those little vacuums. I went to get them and they were gone!! Crappy!!!
The christmas decor is super cute! I love the towell holder in the bathroom. I have been jealous of it ever since the first time I saw it!! Where did you get it? Probably at oops and they don't have that here! Are you going to do the christmas home tour on the 15th? If not, you really should.

TCKK said...

I love the photo with the rocking horse. Very pretty. We went shopping but not until later in the day. Got a good deal on a matress pad, nothing much else, but had fun anyway.

Sandy Toes said...

How pretty...love it! I went out for Black Friday but not too many deals here!

Sunny said...

Beautimus! Love the pics of y'all. Good lookin' folks you guys are!

Scrapper Mom said...

No deals for me on Friday, but I did do the Cyber Monday thing today. Save quite a bit. Check it out before midnight!

Everything looks great..as usual.

The Berry's Patch said...

Everything looks great! I'm excited to see your Christmas tree. I love those small trees that you bought. Where are you going to put them? :-)

Jenna said...

You are a brave girl to go out on black Friday! Everything looks great!

Sarah Kate said...

You are brave, I was too scared to go to Walmart. But I did get the same trees that you did at Walgreens.

Empty Nest Full Life said...

Glad you had a great Thanksgiving, and all your decorations are great! I am ready to get going. I have only 2 days this week that I am not subbing, so I will be busy. Have a great week! Jackie

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Loving the Christmas decorations! The bird picture is one that I have admired for quite some time, but had forgotten about. I think it would be perfect for my bedroom!
I used to shop on black Friday, but no more. I need my sleep too much (LOL).

Cherry's Jubilee said...

All of it is sooo pretty! I love that old Santa Claus. Glad you had a fun shoppping trip with your Mom. cherry

AndreaLeigh said...

Are those the BOGO free trees from Walgreens? If so, I got those too! Score! Sounds like you ended up with some good loot.

Our Complete Family said...

You did score some good deals hun! I have a confession~ I was snoozing at 5am but my hubby ran out to ToysRUs to grab a ride on toy for Caroline and Guitar Hero for Bryce. God love him!
Love the Christmas you spread in the bathroom and office. They look great!
Happy Monday to you~ Hugs, Les

HeathahLee said...

I now totally want that bird print! Does it have a title? I'm all about Googling stuff. : )

Glitter and Bliss said...

My little boy was sick on black Fri..so mommy stayed in. Love all your decor.. So festive...

devri said...

oh!! I wanted that vacum, but did not get to it in time... I wasn't about to push and shove,

although I wanted too.

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Everything looks great. Especially love the framed bird print with greenery underneath!!

Brittany said...

I just came back for another peak, and I LOVE those santa candle sticcks in your office. Those are so unique, where did you get them?

Betsy said...

Looks great!

Sooz said...

Oh its all so pretty! I love it! I thought about you yesterday when my mom and I went to Sam's Club. They had this beautiful bird cage that reminded me of you. It looks similar but a bit bigger to the one I saw recently on the Shabby Nest blog.

Whitney said...

Such cute decorations! My mom has that same bird picture in her house! I went out at 3:30am on Black Friday - I am almost done Christmas shopping and I got some AMAZING deals!

Belinda said...

Shannon,

Belinda

Jerri Lynn @ Southern Sassyness said...

Hey girl - yep, did the BF thing, but mostly toys...shh! :)

You didn't know about the Dayspring sale? Gosh, I assumed ya did! We will have to meet there next year! It really is fabulous!

Liz said...

Very cute!

Cari said...

Hi Shannon! Yes, I have moved a lot! TypePad just wouldn't let me arrange things the way I wanted to and I didn't feel it was as easy to reach other Blogger users. Thanks for keeping up with me! :)

Miss(es) Canadian Pie said...

Tonight I am planning on decking our halls! I had big plans to do so on Saturday but our washing machine broke and flooded our laundry room. Away went all of my holiday decorating plans. I just love to see how you decorate! I know I've said it a million times.

We didn't end up going Black Friday Shopping. I was so disapointed! But the weather was so bad here and we were going to be driving 5 hours to get where we needed to go to shop. I loved seeing what you bought and smiled when I saw your Starbucks cup in the pic. :)

Kelli said...

Hi Shannon. Your blog is so adorable. Thanks for getting back to me about the stove. Right now I just use a rag and the stains are still there. But like you I want to try that cleaner with the scrubber but I haven't been able to find it. It's a bit of a pain.

A Hint of Home said...

No great deals for me this year.
I love all your decor. Cute candle sticks with the Santas.

Erin said...

Your Christmas things are great! You are too good to decorate the bathroom! I love it all!

Sit A Spell said...

Glad you could sit a spell on my new blog...I used to live in AR...go hogs go : )
I don't go out on black Friday...too insane for me. I try to shop year round and get deals that way.
OH...love the paint color in your kitchen!

lindanuts said...

I sent DH out to pick me up a camera---KODAK EasyShare ZD8612 IS with 12x Zoom and 8.1 megapixels, memory cards that were very cheap, a carrying case and some $2 dvds. I think the camera is the buy of the season.
Your decorations look great. I just put out a very few things but we're happy with it....

Brittany said...

I don't know where she got t plate, but she orders lots of stuff from a catalog called personal creations. I think they have a website.

asnipofgoodness said...

Everything looks terrific, love that bird picture1 I need to get in the decorating groove!!!

Blissful Nikki said...

ohhh!! I love it all! :) Hey, you forgot your email address over at my blog for me to send you over to the secret blog!! :)

Fabiola said...

The decoration is getting prettier by the day. Maybe I will send a air ticket to Brazil and you will come and help me with my house decoration. What do you think? ;)
