Red+Aqua = Modern or Retro Christmas?

{Handmade Holiday Card Pack of 3 by Monkey Mind Design}

I’ve always wanted a Christmas tree in our master bedroom. I’m sure this started way back when I was just a wee one. I can still remember several years with a tiny tree in my room and the pure delight it brought me. I saw that same delight in my son’s eyes as we set up his new white tree this year (thank you after Christmas sales). Lucky for me … in a moment of weakness … my sweets said okay to picking up a tree for our room during those same sales. Before he could come to his senses, I grabbed a few red, silver & aqua balls to adorn said tree. And while that may be all that decorates it this year (this is one work in progress I’m going to love adding to each year), I thought that I’d share a few ‘Red & Aqua’ Christmas items that caught my eye on Etsy …

{Holiday Mini Wreath by Bits and Barley}

{Christmas Tag Set – Plantable – Set of 50 by Recycled Ideas}

{Holiday Layered Snowflake Embellishments by Scrap Bits}

How was that for some fun eye candy? I’m totally inspired to make up some garland and ornaments using red and aqua felt … I just need to find the time ;). Oh and a tree skirt … yes, a tree skirt.

Hmmmm ….

Maybe I can use the scraps from my next “Happy Little” Camera Strap Slipcover series. Here’s a sneak peek at the fabrics::

I’m hoping to list these in the shop with the rest of my re-stock for Cyber Monday. Come back tomorrow for Cyber Monday details and a discount code for my favorite readers (that’s YOU)!!


  1. I think it’s a little bit of both, which is why it’s so pretty!!

  2. I love it all! I especially like that bunting, might have to pick some up for our retro/modern Christ-giving 😉 Loved getting to be there when E put up his tree and so jealous that you have one in your room, I suppose I’ll still love you if you post pictures!

  3. I love the color combo!
