French Country Christmas Dining Room Part 2

Hello Friends, I'm back today with Part 2 of the Christmas Dining Room. Since I have so much color in the rest of the house, with a lot of Tartan Plaid, I like to lean toward a more neutral color scheme and a French Country vibe in this space.

French Country Lantern Centerpiece

Welcome to the Christmas Dining Room, friends. This last several years I've been pushing myself a bit to come up with new ways to decorate this room. I have relied heavily on Tartan Plaid in my Dining Rooms for years, but recently I've tried to move toward a more French Country look that relies more on neutral, natural garden elements.

Weekend Inspiration: What's Your Favorite Christmas Style?

Today I'm sharing a post from back in 2016 that is one of my all-time most read. I thought I might "refurbish" the content, but instead just added to it a bit to include "Cottage" style which has emerged this last few years. If it feels a little dated, decor trends have shifted and redefined themselves this last couple of years. You might even find some "new to you" blogs from the last decade. I thought it would be fun just to take a quick look at some of the different "Styles of Christmas".

Christmas Copper On the Hearth

Happy, happy day after Thanksgiving, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful day Thursday (and this weekend) with family and friends. Some of us still have family here so we're enjoying a bit of shopping, resting, and eating leftovers. How about you. Are you itching to get on with Christmas decorating?

Copper Styled Thanksgiving and Christmas on the Baker's Rack

This last few weeks I've been straddling the fence with Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's the same each November... I love Thanksgiving, but I'm also ready for Christmas. Here's the baker's rack for Thanksgiving with a bit of a peek at Christmas. Here's the fun Christmas teaser...

Weekend Inspiration: A Christmas Home Tour

Hi Everyone, It's the weekend and time for a bit of Inspiration from the Archives. If you're like me "inspiration is inspiration", whether it's yesterday, last year, or a few years ago. This is a Christmas Home Tour from 2014, and one of my favorites.

All About Home #169: Welcome to November

Hello Friends and Welcome to the 
All About Home Link Party!

When that calendar page turned to November I know many of us jumped off the sofa and ran for the Christmas tubs... yes I know, even me. I'm doing a hybrid Christmas this year. I'll share more later what that's looking like. I mentioned this once before at the party, but our first grandbaby is due sometime late November to mid December. The arrival date is fuzzy, but that little sweetie is ready to go, so we're trying to anticipate her making a surprise debut! 

Thanks so much for coming by and sharing all the fun stuff you're up to. Amber and I appreciate you all taking the time to join in on the party! We're going to have a fun time this next 2 months with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year on the horizon!

Christmas in July Ideas and Inspiration

Hello Friends, today I'm doing something a bit different, this hot and humid day in late July.  Actually I'm going for a mental "reset" with an opportunity to start thinking about and grabbing some inspiration for the Christmas Holiday that will be coming before we know it. I'm joining in with a fabulous group of talented gals that have amazing ideas throughout the year! Our friend Rachel from The Ponds Farmhouse has put together this fun Hop and if you're coming from visiting CoCo at The Crowned Goat, thanks so much for coming by and continuing the Hop. Lets get going with some Christmas ideas and inspiration slightly ahead of the curve.

New and Old Finds for Christmas in the Garden Room

I just had to share a couple of sweet new finds for Christmas. Once I saw them they pestered me until I said yes and found them in my online "cart". I rarely buy on impulse (unless I'm at the vintage market); I take time to think on things and roll them around in my head for awhile. I hate to pay full price for something, and usually wait for a good sale. But, I just happened to be Christmas shopping, when I found something adorable (and on sale) that really needed to come live in my Cookbook Cupboard.

Christmas is Here at All About Home #123

Hello friends and Welcome
 to the All About Home Link Party!

I can hardly believe Christmas is this week. Are you ready? I still have a few things to do, but I'm so looking forward to spending a little time with our family. Last year was not one I ever want to repeat. So I hope this year it will be a little more "normal" and that you're going to have time with your family. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and share what you're up to this very busy Holiday week. We always look forward to seeing all the great DIYs, decor, crafts, gardens, and recipes that you are all creating for the Holiday season.

A Very Merry Christmas in the Holiday Cupboard

Hello there friends. I know you all are feeling it too, just one week till Christmas and it seems I don't have everything accomplished that I've wanted to do. I still have a few pics to share from around the house. Here we are in the Garden Room where the Holiday Cupboard is my fun spot to decorate. So I'm squeezing it in with a few more posts around the house next week.

Vintage Christmas Home Tour

Hello Friends, today I'm super excited to be part of a wonderful Christmas Tour of Homes with a bit of a twist.  Our good friend Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home has put together a great group of bloggers to share how we decorate our homes for Christmas with vintage pieces and decor. Some of us are fortunate enough to live in historic homes, and others of us just love antiques and vintage furniture that we use to give our spaces a vintage vibe.

Christmas on a Vintage Silver Tray

Hi Friends, I'm so glad you're here today because I'm joining in with a great bunch of bloggers for a really fun get together. We're sharing Holiday inspirational ideas for some easy decorating for Christmas. I think most of us have some kind of tray, shallow basket, or antique pan that can easily be dressed up with greenery, candles, dishes etc. for a unique and even functional addition to our Christmas decor. Let's grab some inspiration for an easy movable decor vignette.
