Welcome Home Christmas Home Tour 2019

This is the first year in our new-to-us cottage and we've had a long year of renovations, updating, moving, organizing, and lastly a major landscape redo. Most of our living space is on the main level and we love having the open spaces to spread out. I like to have a photo journal each year of our home decorated for Christmas. So even though this is a little late, it's my way of looking back on and remembering this wonderful time of year.

The Garden Room

One of my favorite spaces is the large sunroom addition on the back of the house.
 It's bright and light filled which makes it a perfect space for my vintage pieces 
and wicker sitting area.  An old pie safe cupboard is the focal point 
of the sitting area that rotates seasonally. Here it's filled with vintage 
Christmas goodies, and accented with Tartan Plaid. 

A favorite spot to decorate, the Baker's Rack is filled 
with vintage cookie tins and plaid Thermos pieces.

 old painted church pew with an applique quilt 
and goat cart that is carrying my woodsy rustic Father Christmas.

The Garden Room casual dining area is where my farmtable
 and kitchen china cupboard live. The china cabinet houses
 most of my transferware.

The farmtable is a great place for large seasonal vignettes.

The Hearth Room

The perfect cozy spot to cuddle up by the fire...

The Antique Sideboard

 This is a family piece that I had almost written off 
because of the aged orange finish.
I painted it in Chalk Paint before we moved,
 hoping it would work here at the new place.

Thanks so much for coming by for the Christmas Home Tour, and I hope you enjoyed all the Tartan Plaid fun. I've listed the individual posts of room highlights, in case you missed any of them. As always, you all are appreciated so much. Thankyou for blessing me throughout this wonderful Holiday Season!!
