Santa Claus is Coming to Town…

Xmas 2014 | Santa's Workshop FR

Late last night when everyone fell asleep, I slipped into Santa’s Workshop but not before I had to lift the key from a very friendly elf, if you know what I mean.  Well, any time the elves and Santa drink eggnog they get very jolly.  As I unhitched the lock, a world of discovery awaits.  Santa’s shop was very cozy and warm with a decorated brick fireplace anchoring the center of the room.  His workshop bench with the naughty or nice list was on the side wall, and a bare stick tree with presents and tree skirt nestled next to the workshop table.  Santa’s grand red velvet throne cuddled close to a decorated potted fir-tree and the brick fireplace, and a console table was placed on the opposite wall.  A few mischievous puppies were playing in the middle of the room on the red round snowflake rug similar to the one in the rustic guest bedroom.  Santa’s workshop is comfortable and inviting with items that can easily be used in your home wrapped in the holiday spirit!

SL Xmas Expo 2014 | Potomac Signature Homes, Holiday Lane Bedroom (close-up) FR

After a cup or two of hot chocolate, night fell on the North Pole and the Misses showed me my room for the evening.  The rustic charm of the winter lodge living room continued into the guest bedroom.  The Potomac Signature Homes Holiday Lane bedroom is a cozy retreat with an oak four-poster bed adorned with garland and wrapped in red and green wool tartan duvet, matching plaid lampshades and quilted wreath.  Oak side tables and dresser, snowflake rug, and a sparkling frosted Christmas tree complete with quilted handmade tree skirt, candle and string lights, ornaments, poinsettia, and “spinning” silver snowflake topper welcomes and charms the bedroom. The Holiday Lane bedroom is available at the SL Christmas Expo 2014!
