Beach Christmas Decor - Part 3

Ok, you saw the beach tablescape & trees in my earlier posts, so here's the rest of the decorations...
Starting with the family room:

this is the top of the entertainment center...Santa has shells on his blue Damask robe...(click on the photo to enlarge to see the details).


an end table...a Decorating Cents idea...a birdbath with a glass top and shells and sea glass in sand underneath...a Sea Captain Santa.



Ship's name is SS Claus

Santa chillaxing...


another end table...the sweet penguins are a new find from TJ Maxx...

The master bedroom...

got these chimes at Walmart a few years back...on a beautiful teal cord.


The nightstands....


This little golfer with Rudolph as the caddy was picked up by my husband at a yard sale one year. The golf clubs are actually removable from the golf bag. This is also a vintage lamp I bought from my friend, Luke, who owns Collectics, a cute little antique store in N. Myrtle Beach. I have searched, for several years, for the perfect shades to match the lamp bases, and found these at Pottery Barn on clearance over the summer. Still considering blinging them up with some blue & green fringe.

The tree again...

Forgot to take a picture of the bed, but rest assured it has a Christmas pillow on it! This is the view from the bed. These photos don't do these trees justice as they are beaded tealish blue trees from Michael's a few years back, and they're also one of my favorite beach decorations.

T.K.'s room....



Her tree again...

By the bathroom...


Close up...
also a new tree (Home Goods)...the silver-ish starfish, sand dollars, etc. were again, Pottery Barn clearance this summer.

This is also a new decoration added from Home Goods this season. I love his blue-colored suit, and he looks like a ship's captain to me.


The kitchen...(another lamp from Luke). The white little electronic thing behind the lamp...a weather radio - everyone should have one!



Some of you have seen the newest Santa before...


Guest bedroom decorations...


Every house needs a nativity, even at the beach...after all, it's the reason for the season...(even if it is from Dollar Tree! :O)


Downstairs bathroom...I know if this were RMS, you'd be telling me to ditch the faux paint treatment...it was meant to look like the ocean.

Don't know if you remember this from one of the 1st photos, but it says,
"Merry Christmas from N. Myrtle Beach Blogging Friends!"
I need a new photographer!


And this, my friends, is why my hubby says I need to go to work decorating someone else's house, not just ours....I don't think there's room for anything else, do you? ;O)

What fun you must be having with all that decorating! When you run out of space to decorate there you are welcome to just drop on by my place and keep on going! LoL!
I love the whole beach Christmas theme!

I'm with Tam...I've lots of space to decorate and I LOVE the ocean, so that theme would work!
You are having a blast!

Good morning Tar...You have some of the cutest & most unusual Christmas items...well, unusual here in my part of Texas...not even close to a beach! I love the blue/green ocean-y theme you have going on...so soothing! ♥ Bo

jeanne said...

Tardevil, I came over from Bo's post to see what you have been up to. Wow, I love all of your beachy decorations. I scrolled down for the other ones too. You are a girl after my own heart. You have taken a theme and took it to the top. I like your bathroom wall. I will confess, I also like wallpaper. Oh, I'm in trouble now!!!

Christmas hugs...Jeanne

Darlene said...

I enlarged some of the pictures to see them better. You should tell everyone to enlarge them, because the shells on that first Santa are wonderful, and those wonderful Christmas trees look beautiful enlarged. Everything looks so festive and fun. I cannot believe you got that nativity from the dollar store! It's lovely. laurie

I love your Christmas decorating.

O my goodness, just look at that aqua blue Santa! Fabulous!

I enjoyed this so much. Thank you!

We passed through Myrtle Beach a few years ago, on our way down to Charleston. I met a friend from one of my decorating boards. She owns a drapery shop. And now the name escapes me. Her name is Martha and her shop's name is Mar, something. Wish I could remember! It's right on the tip of my tongue. J and I enjoyed meeting her and her daughter and granddaughter, at her shop. That was the first time we met someone we "know" through my online decorating groups. Was so much fun!

Have a great weekend!

Where is your friend's shop located? I'd like to check it out! :) I used to visit the large antique mall in NMB, that has the big fiberglass "statues" outside, but haven't been in several years. In fact, my entry foyer table came from that shop! :)
