by hookedonhouses on December 8, 2009
When Santa returned home after Christmas, he was disheartened to see that Mrs. Claus had been busy “decorating” again.

He sees when you’ve been decorating in your sleep. He knows when your awake. He knows when you’ve been bad or good, so be good for decorating sake!
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

Oh My Gosh that is so funny.,. I’m at work trying not to laugh out loud.. I think I hurt something… LOL LOL LOL
That is so funny. “Santa regrets that he’d said ‘yes’ when Mrs. Claus asked if she could freshen up their bedroom while he was out of town.”
Oh, goodness. Thank you for this smile-bringer. Your blog is continually a source of delight!

Oh my, can we say eewwww!
Oh my goodness!!
What were they thinking??? Poor, poor Santa!
.-= Lou Cinda´s last blog ..DECK THE HALLS ~ FA LA LA LA LA =-.
What’s really sad is that the person who created this blue mess really thinks it’s spectacular. She broke every rule in the decorating handbook, too, poor thing! From blocking a window with a bed to fake flowers to Creepy Santa who looks like Burger King’s cousin…yikes!!! I bet if you moved around the furniture and took at least half of the crap out of the room, it would look really nice…she has the right idea, but just way too much of it.

Caption: He sees you when you’re sleeping, no really, he does.

I LOVE that headboard! And the clock… so shabby chic! The decor can certainly go though, and Santa is plain creepy in that pic.
Oh my. I have no words…
.-= Deidra´s last blog ..The Best Christmas Pageant. Ever. =-.
“Santa returned home from his midnight run to find that the Easter Bunny had thrown up all over his bed. Unable to find Mrs. Claus, and too exhausted to do the laundry himself, he collapsed into his chair, where he slept all that day.”
Coffee spit all over my screen this morning, really? REALLY??
.-= Bailey´s last blog ..Home of the Bizarre and Fabulous =-.
I’m speechless. I have no caption…
But, I love the quirkiness of this set-up. I mean come on, is it for real? Like someone actually thinks THIS is good decorating?
Finally! After all these years we FINALLY find out what Santa gives you if you POUT or CRY or are NAUGHTY. (-You get a dusty, frilly, fuzzy, cacophany of a room as punishment for your misgivings!)
.-= Trish@TheOldPostRoad´s last blog ..Checks and More Checks for Christmas =-.
…and are those bath mats on the floor???
If less is more, think how much better MORE would be!
.-= LaurelStreet´s last blog ..Large or small – let me know what you think! =-.
I would have to caption this: “The Nightmare Before (or After) Christmas!” Poor person…I think she really just tried waaaaay tooooo hard!
.-= Cyndi´s last blog ..The Snowman from Hell! =-.
Santa’s got his swag on!!
.-= linda@LimeintheCoconut´s last blog ..Join me in the tub… =-.
I find this image oddly disturbing…a caption? I’m at a loss. Janell
.-= Janell Beals´s last blog ..Winter Wonderland =-.
I don’t even know where to begin with this picture…lol…Wow…that’s all I can say..lol wow
.-= Jen @ After The Alter´s last blog ..Taking A Break… =-.
When questioned, Santa swore “He just likes to watch.”
.-= JenR´s last blog ..Shiny and brite…A vintage inspired Christmas tree =-.
“Santa didn’t know what to make of the decorator’s note: Dear Santa, Red is out this season, until he saw the bedroom.”
.-= Amber´s last blog ..i’m dreaming of an (heirloom) white Christmas (part 1) =-.
Annie told me she freaked out when she awoke to see Santa at her beside watching her sleep.
I said, “Girl, that is the least of your problems!”
What’s crazy is, it looks like someone actually really loves this room.
.-= Cottage Dreamers´s last blog ..We have everything but the kitchen sink =-.
I just threw up in my mouth a little.
Sorry – that was honestly my first thought.
.-= Jocelyn Stott´s last blog ..Tea Cart Candy Bar =-.
Uhm. It looks like an elf died in the middle of that bed. Either that or Chiffon puked all over the room… yuck.
“what happens when elfs talk back to Mrs. Claus”
.-= Kelly´s last blog ..Countdown begins =-.
I am not good with captions, but this picture is creepy! LOL!
.-= Jenny´s last blog ..Christmas Advent & A Surprise =-.
Our train set has just had a wreck!! Where do people get all these ideas from?? Don’t they know when enough is enough. Imagine what the rest of the house looks like, a cluster….!!!!!
Santa could only watch helplessly as Mrs. Claus disappeared through the middle of the bed, swallowed by the Creature from the Blue Lace Lagoon.
Ok, I have dust mite allergies and just looking at this picture is making me itch in sympathy for Santa, but I’ll give it a go:
“Santa wonders what he did wrong to have his wife try to hide his bed from him.”
And JenR, LOL!
Mrs. Claus grew tired of all the red and green…
Wow, I’m a little scared of this room.
.-= Carmen´s last blog ..Just a little something I am working on… =-.
If ever a room deserved a great big chunk of coal….
EEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!! That’s just plain BAD!!!!!
Truly The Nightmare Before Christmas!!This room looks like some sort of holding place for someone’s scrap lace pieces!! With Santa being an afterthought over on the side!! For Heaven’s Sake…..
“WTF?” demanded Santa.
.-= Brismod´s last blog ..Some rearranging =-.
This is what happens when you don’t get out much…you bring the sustainable living indoors.
Kind of a fantasy life. This is the room of a very elderly woman for sure.
Santa is looking for his cookies and milk…wait where are his hands oh no…this is really bad. He’s checking his text messages before wifie get a hold of his cell phone.
Could his list be longer than Tiger Woods! Oh my what a year this has been!
Santa shook his head sadly and KNEW he’d have to put this homeowner on the naughty list.
That room is horrible!!!!
.-= Mom in High Heels´s last blog ..Random Thoughts Tuesday! Christmas Trees, culture and dirty houses =-.
“The neighbors realized they had really pissed off Martha Stewart when they saw their re-decorated bedroom, after it was pronounced ‘A Good Thing’.”
“At last! A purpose for Beth’s crinoline collection was at hand!”
“Before the episode could even broadcast, the Smith family sued both their neighbors and the producers of Trading Spaces over the ‘Santa, Baby’ master bedroom theme.”
.-= Cathryn´s last blog ..$70,000 a Year For One Drug =-.
Not sure what that $70,000 a year thing is on my post….NOT MINE!
“She’ll have a blue, blue, blue Christmas without him!”
.-= Bonnie Mattson´s last blog ..Merry Christmas to One and All! =-.
Very quickly Santa was faced with the down-side to Mrs Claus’s recent repeated viewings of “Gone with the Wind”.
Santa was sorely disappointed to see that Mrs. Claus used the Quinceanera dress made for Anita as a bedspread.
.-= Alycia Wicker´s last blog ..Ava Living Christmas =-.
It looks to me like an explosion at Tiffany’s. I just can’t figure out how Santa got caught up in the middle of it 😉
You’re definitely on the Naughty List!
Isn’t it fabulous what one can do with a bunch of second hand wedding dresses and some blue rit dye.
.-= Derek´s last blog ..Curb appeal revisited =-.
Santa unfortunately will be stuck in a trance of blue for many many years.
.-= Maya´s last blog ..Ideas for Homemade Christmas Ornaments -Coastal Style! =-.
Ha! I sent you this photo and the article is from our newspaper which features a home every Sunday. The funny part is it was featured, I believe, this summer. What was Santa doing in there? You all would love to see the rest of this house……..
“I ran out of sticks and coal, so kids on the naughty list each have to spend a night in here.”
The quotes this week are hilarious!!!

“I thought my wife was crazy when she decorated the bedroom, but when she asked if Santa could ‘watch’, I knew she’d gone too far ” LOL
.-= rue´s last blog ..Historic Holiday Home Tour~ part one =-.
It kind of reminds me of my neighbor’s house. She’d probably LOVE it.
ps Is Santa gazing at a cluster of heart pillows on the bed?
.-= Julie M.´s last blog .."24…25…26…" =-.
deck the bed with fills and fru-fru,
fa-la-la-la-la la-la la-la
fake roses in pink and light blue,
fa-la-la-la-la la-la la-la
use an old dress for your curtains
fa-la-la, la-la-la, la, la, la
this whole room has got me hurtin’
fa-la-la-la-la la-la la-la!
P.S. Give me until the weekend and I will get you some doozies from the local listings here in nashvegas!
.-= Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish´s last blog ..DIY Ornaments with a Twist! =-.
Holy Freakin’ WOW ~ Santa is having a very, very bad dream!
.-= Paula Grace´s last blog ..Indoor Air Pollution =-.
A cross between a 50’s funeral parlor & bordello.
I had to come back and comment on this some more. I just can’t help myself.
Jess, I think another name for using a dress as curtains should be “pulling a reverse Scarlett O’Hara.”
Also, Julia, when this showed up in my blog reader, I thought you had lost your mind. I’m glad to see not only your mind is intact, but so is your sense of humor!
Santa was chagrined when he realized it had been 22 years since Jennifer had requested, “a frilly pillow for my bed.”
I don’t have anything clever or funny about the picture but I do really love the headboard!
No caption, but it would really weird me out to find Santa glaring at me in my bed! LOL!
.-= SueLovesCherries´s last blog ..REDNESDAY – CHRISTMAS REDS #2 =-.
Santa realized he went down the wrong chimney when he realized the occupants were Jewish…
Artificial flowers ? Check. billowy lace curtains? check.
Nylon robin egg blue bedspread? Check.
The “Rosary Room” – is complete!
– great photo – I would like to see what Mrs Claus wheres to bed!
.-= michèle´s last blog ..Christmas Trees and Home Décor =-.
Blue Christmas….Elvis Presley
” Santa is visiting the land of misfit bedding!!”
“Mommy, please don’t make me stay at gramma’s again!”
I think my landlords live here!
This photo really makes Santa look very, very creepy. I once took MLS photos of a house with a six foot Santa in the dining room (it was July already!#@*???) along with other Christmas decor. And an undressed Barbie that looked like she was being swallowed alive by a ceramic crocodile? I had a difficult time trying to get photos around all the stuff.
Ooooo I’m getting a migrain looking at all the errrrrr…..frills and things. Santa looks like Mrs eversham in great expectations! lol lol lol
I can’t get past the thought that Santa is very naughty here.
What were they thinking???
This is beyond creepy.
