A Stroll Down Christmas Lane

I had so much fun decorating our house last Christmas. My favorite part of blogging is getting to look back at the year and see exactly what we were doing or how things looked around the house. Our house has changed quite a bit in the last year, not so many reds, but softer, calmer colors instead. My decorating this Christmas is much more laid back and transitional. I'll post some pictures early next week of Christmas around the house, but for now, let's stroll down memory lane shall we?


Welcome friends to our home. I'm so thrilled that you could stop by for a visit. Firstly, it sounds really bonkers that I'd be inviting anyone over for a home tour! This little, old house of ours is hardly show-worthy by any means, but, I'm a real firm believer in the "bloom where you're planted" philosophy, and because of that, our home is always open to friends! With that being said, come on in y'all! 



I've tried so hard to stay on track with a simple and thrifty Christmas, with the focus on ushering in Jesus' birth. You'll see lots of natural elements in our home because that is the easiest way to decorate and the price is always right {free!}. Our home is already full of color, so I try to keep the holiday decor as natural and green as possible. I love using fresh magnolia, juniper, pine and nandina whenever possible both inside and out. This year, we went to a tree farm and cut down our own tree- what a wonderful day it was! I had found this sweet old washtub and was saving it for our tree. Topped with vintage colored lights- I'm just smitten.

Each room gets a little bit of Christmas love. The dining room gets lots of party traffic this time of year so I gave it a little fresh greenery and set up a hot cocoa bar for our guests.



The kitchen gets all spruced up with lots of fresh elements as well.


I went really simple this year in the bedrooms and made sure that they gave a polite little nod to the season. The master bedroom had a few playful details added to freshen it up for the winter months.



Matthew's room had some vintage C7 lights added for fun. Miles, the cat, LOVES the ambiance they add to the room!



And the girls' room, that was a fun one. Last year, Edie @Life In Grace, really got me when she dolled up her dress form in an evergreen skirt, so this year, I new it was number one on my Christmas to-do list! Edie, this room's for you!




And that wraps up our very first Christmas home tour! If you missed our Merry Little Porch tour, just click here, for that tour.




Thank y'all so much for taking the time to visit with me today. Merry Christmas!

A Little Farm Christmas 2014 {A Mini Home Tour}

Here's a tiny sneak peek at the mantel. That's all I can show you because it's going to be over on Blissful And Domestic in all it's southern glory on December 18th, so stay tuned for that!
