Welcome to Country Christmas

A little more Christmas around the house.

Just thought I would take a few minutes to share with you some of the other pictures around the house.  I wish I had felt up to doing the village and going all out this year, but with work and life in general there just wasn't as much time as I would have liked between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.  I hope to get some pictures of our table laden with goodies, as well as the our tree with the packages.  Hopefully I will remember to get pictures of that before we tear into everything.  But until then, here are a few more shots of my home for the holidays.

Sorry this picture is so light.  But this is the quilt rack in my family room this year.  Simple!


A few trees in crocks in my dining rooms.


A simple little tree on the kitchen counter.  I love the little framed stitchery on the wall. 


My little tree in the guest bathroom.  I was all about simplicity this year, but it puts off the softest glow.


Here is my poinsettia in my dining room.  It looks kinda droopy here, but it is very full and pretty.  Guess it needed water when this shot was taken, huh?


I just really like how this candle is displayed.  The small greenery surrounding the candle is so real like.  Again, simple but pretty.


Here we are in the kitchen again.  Don't you just love the little tree in the coffee tin.  This is one of my favorites.  So country.


This is the wreath that is hanging on my front door this year.  Snowmen!  Gotta love'm!


Well there you have it, a few more snippets of my holiday decor. I know this week will be busy with family and such, but I hope I can add a few more shots, I haven't made any of my front porch, but will try to get to that.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far.

The Christmas Dining Room

One of my favorite rooms to decorate is my Dining Room.  This is where I use my love for snow and snowmen.  Let me know what you think? Got any new ideas for me.  Please share.

My little tree is crooked.  Oops. Guess I need to fix that!

This is my snowman collection.


Just a simple tablescape, but I love the simplicity of it.

Those are just a few shots of my dining room.  Now for some pictures of my kitchen table and kitchen. Sorry they are blurry. I need to take some different ones. 



I think I will post more later.

The house tours continues

I hope you all enjoyed having a  glimpse of our family room, now I want to show you my Living Room  and our tree.  In my family room, as you could see, I have a primitive country tree that has ornies, and homemade ornaments, I love the simplicity of that tree.  Meanwhile, in my Living Room, I have my traditional tree.  This is the tree that I have all my children's ornaments on, things they have given/made for me and ornaments from vacations, places we have lived. My sentimental ornaments are on this tree.  I also always use multi colored lights on it, because that is what my kids prefer on this tree. As I have mentioned before, I didn't do as much decorating, and you will notice that my kids kinda skimped on the ornaments.  Believe me when I say, I have at least triple the amount of ornaments that you see on here.  But that is okay. 

Can you see me little sled, I picked this us this summer at a auction for pennies, and knew that I would use it to put under my Christmas tree with my Victorian Boyd's Bear.  Love it.



Here is the table that sits at the entrance of the foyer, looking into the living room.


Some of my bear collection in the little cradle.


A little close up of the sleigh. I will have to get a better one before we have Christmas.



Stop by tomorrow for the Dining Room.  K?

What a week

I haven't had time to share on my Country Christmas Blog as I had hoped, but I did want to do a small house tour.  Just a few of my decorating style. 


So sit back and enjoying visiting my home.

This is the mantle in my family room, with some of my Santa Collection.


Sorry this picture is so light, it takes away from the charm of this little display. 



Some of the little goodies under my prim tree. Next to the fireplace you can see some of my favorite little stools.  Aren't they adorable.  I have a thing for them.


Here is my dough bowl filled with jumbo balls and pine sprigs. I wish I had a better shot of this.


Again, my prim tree, and then tomorrow I will show you my Living room tree.


I hope you can stop by for the rest of the tour.

Hugs to all.

My Prim Tree

Wanted to take a few minutes before I call it a night/weekend.  I promised some pictures of my house, but will tell you that I am not happy with the way that they turned out.  Kinda blurry.  But it gives you some idea.  This year, I didn't decorate the way I usually do, I didn't put nearly the amount of things out this year as years in the past.  But since time is of a essence, I just did a little bit.  First I think I will start in my  family room.


Of course, the tree is the focal point of this room, and I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out.   I love this tree.  The soft glow of the gold lights on it makes all the difference.  Years before I have had multi colored and all white, but the gold/amber lights, give it the old 'flame' look of candles.  This tree houses all my handmade type ornaments.  Underneath the tree, I use a old quilt as my tree skirt and this year I filled it with some old toys and bears.  I really wish there was more room, because I have a sled that I like to display under this tree, but this year, I didn't think it would work.  After this picture was made I added a old rusty tin star to the top. 

I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek at my prim tree.

One of my favorite things to do

in December is make a trip to Williamsburg Va.  If you can you should.  I simply love going down there and taking pictures of the doors all decked out for the holidays.  I haven't gotten to go the last several years but hope to make that trip this year.  I will show you some of the doors from previous years past.  Since I am intrigued with history, I love to scope out the colonial traditions for christmas.  If you would like to find out more click on "A Colonial Christmas".  I like to incorporate some of their traditions in ours.  We'll discuss some these later.

If you have a country christmas website, I hope you will let me know about it so I can visit. 

On to the doors.....
