Christmas Guest Bedroom and other stuff

My guest bedroom. While I'm not expecting any overnight guests, if you want to visit Poetry, we can shove these things on the floor and you can chill in here.
Jan at Summer Sundays suggested that we Mary-fy the pregnant mannequin. So, LucyJane took this task to heart and look. Toga! Toga! I mean, Mary! Mary!

Looks good, huh?

If Grandma Joy's teeth threw ya, this fine silver dish with strands of pearls, Uncle Otis' black bow tie and random glass eyes will really getcha!

When the family comes over Sunday, I promise you, many a picture will be taken with these things jammed into eye sockets. We're funny like that, my family.

And this last pic is for Margo. She requested a close up of this piece which hangs in my den. So, here it is. I did not do this. I don't do this kind of thing. I appreciate it.

I said last pic...but, I can't resist. Here's my cousin Ronda working the glass eyes.

Happy Day!


  1. Disturbing...on so many levels! I can only imagine the family photos!


    P.S. I'll call ahead if I'm going to be in town! :) The guest room looks like a great place to be a guest!

  2. My daughter is blind in one eye (she really is!) so I might be buying one of those eyes from you! I'd wrap it up in Santa paper...No, wait, That's even too sick for me! She's think it really funny though. Humor is one of her many strong points!

  3. Okay, now I'm seriously worrying about you! Pregnant mannequins in eyes.....Grandma Joy's teeth....? What's next? A rack of hangdowns?



  4. Is someone in your family a mortician? Where do you get all those eyes? And teeth? Now if other body parts start showing up.....


  5. Those eyes say it all.... You are too funny!! Here's an early Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  6. All in favor, say EYE!!! LOOKS wonderful. I SEE you are really getting into the Christmas preparation! It's all just a great VISION. I think I'll stop now. It really does look good! Debbie

  7. I don't think I could sleep in a room with that many eyes watching me.

  8. Beautiful guest bedroom! That bed is fantastic.


  9. You crack me up!!!! And it was a ray of sunshine. From someone who tends to be a little "stodgy" in my decorating, I love the crazy things you do. Thanks for the chuckles! Jan

  10. Which holiday are you decorating for??? Truly love the whimisy, and I love that you dressed up Mary. Thanks for the close up, i really like that piece, and may have to make one for myself.
    have a great Christmas, and have fun playing with your eyes.
