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.

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 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.

It's a Merry Little Christmas in the Kitchen


Hello Everyone, it's time for my annual Kitchen post. I know... It's terrible that I don't get around to sharing my kitchen more often. I don't decorate much here in the kitchen, (because the rest of the house is always done up) and it seems that it's always in use. But Hey, it's Christmastime and there are a few fun Christmas goodies  hanging around this time of year.

Snowy White Churches on the Old Sideboard


If you all remember, the sideboard was one of those family pieces that lived in the basement the last several houses we've had. I had a few pieces that I wouldn't /couldn't part with that had been handed down for at least a generation or so. I loved them, but just didn't have a spot for them in the main living areas. The sideboard was from my grandmother's home and is from the late 1800's. It was black with old varnish at that point, then we refurbished it in the late 70's and it stayed with a sealing oil finish until we moved here 3 years ago. Since I painted it white with ASCP I've fallen in love with it all over again.

Elegant Gold Gilt Pears

A few years ago I found myself getting into a bit of a rut in my Dining Room with Christmas decor. If I find pieces that I like, it's easy for me to rely on the same look from one year to the next. I have a lot of vintage "kitch-y" fun stuff that I use in the Garden Room, but in the Dining Room I like to do something a little more French Country. Tartan plaid can still be found in here, but I've wanted to try some new/different ideas with a more elegant country vibe.

A Look at Life in 2020

At the end of the calendar year, I'm like most bloggers and I like to do a recap of the year through the lens of my camera and the posts which document what I've been up to these last 12 months. So here's a few popular posts, a few thoughts, and maybe even some optimism for the year 2021.

Christmas Home Tour 2020

Hello Everyone,
 Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas; unwrapping gifts, indulging in all sorts of mouthwatering goodies, enjoying the company of our loved ones, taking a walk/nap... It was quiet here, just the two of us, be we had a very nice day and stayed in as it was in the 20's. I'm a little late with a Christmas Home Tour, but I like to keep a visual diary of our home during the Christmas Season for myself and the blog. I'll be short on words, but I wanted to record the decor and essence of the Christmas Holiday Season, 2020.

Little Houses on the Sideboard and Cookbook Cupboard


So, now it's Christmas week and I still have a few spots around the house to share. I've decided I'm going to have to start a few Christmas posts before Thanksgiving, because the Christmas season is just not long enough! I'll just blame it on more fun spots to decorate.

Celebrating Advent in the Entry

It's easy to let the fun and busy-ness of the Holidays to take over, and before we know it the Santas and Snowmen and Elves have decorated our homes and heads at Christmas. I know I love to decorate every room, and sometimes I need a spot that I can focus on for the real meaning of Christmas. So when Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home invited us to a Hop that celebrates Advent I knew I would love to participate. Thankyou Amber! If you're coming from Marty at A Stroll Thru Life, Hello, I'm so glad you came by.
