Christmas in the Country Home Tour

Glad you could stop by for the Christmas Home Tour! There are more than 40 bloggers participating.

Wreath Lead

I have been working on decorating for a while, it feels good to finally have everything in place!

This is the back door, a Rustic Wooden Wreath says “hello”.

Red coop

The view from the back door is of the chicken coop. Our sweet Delaware chickens have gone to live with friends for the winter, but I couldn’t resist decorating the coop.

I have always wanted a barn to decorate, this coop is as close as I have ever gotten to owning a barn!

Timepiece display

The back porch has a few fun Christmas touches, this old mail box and jingle bells make for a unique coffee table vignette.

The Timepiece Ornament was one of my recent sewing projects.

The back wall of the porch is full of beautiful rustic barn boards. It’s my favorite thing in this entire house. I love how the barn boards look with my DIY Gold Snowflakes.

Painted tree

The porch also is the home to our Spray Painted Christmas Tree.

I love the grey color, it’s very subtle.

I love it even more with silver, grey and blue ornaments.

Monogrammed ornament

The ornaments look rather mysterious on it. This monogram is chalk paint on a DIY ornament globe.

I still have more of them to paint. Perhaps I will finish before the holidays!

I love the beaded ornament hangers from Hobby Lobby, they make the simplest ornaments look special!


I have collected white reindeer ornaments for some time, they look so right on the “frosted” tree!


Speaking of Frosty… he’s my son’s favorite orament.

Kitchen tour

I didn’t decorate a lot in the kitchen, but I did put together this mason jar display with bottle brush trees and snow on the pantry shelves.

The wooden Merry Christmas Banner above it is from Target. I bought it especially for this tour, but totally failed to get it in the picture.

Sorry folks.

I will redeem myself instead with more Gold Snowflakes.

You can never have too many jars, or snowflakes as far as I am concerned.

Kitchen tour-5

The master bedroom got a special treatment, more DIY Gold Snowflakes were added to a boring white wall with the help of Command Strips. I love those things!

I had a ball stringing up the lights and vintage ornaments over the bed.

Kitchen tour-7

The vintage ornaments were hung on twine with mini-clothes pins. They are completely charming and are mostly handmade.

I also added some jingle bells on silver clips to the lineup.

I find the little white lights very soothing, not to mention romantic.

Kitchen tour-2

I prefer all white bedding, it makes me feel like I am sleeping in a cloud. The only extravagance here is the furry white pillow.

The gold mirrors around the room were antiques that my mother gave me. They are very old.

They are some of my favorite things in the entire world.

I absolutely never tire of them.

Kitchen tour-3

The bedside table sports some bottle brush trees displayed on a cake plate and a little matching wreath.

I fell in love with the vintage baby shoes and filled them with ornaments, rosemary twigs, and more jingle bells.

The Amaryllis will be blooming around Christmas, I can’t wait until it opens.

Merry Christmas baby!

Kitchen tour-4

More gold mirrors here.

I found the gold reindeer at a thrift store.

The mauve bottle brush wreath adds a bit of color to the room and keeps it from being too white.

Kitchen tour-8

On to the dining room!

I just painted the buffet yesterday, so glad I did!

I love how it looks with the silver and grey ornaments on the tree.

The wool fabric is a leftover scrap from a cape I am making.

The room is very small and a little tree is all that’s needed to brighten up a dark corner.

The big mirror over the buffet helps to brighten things too!

Kitchen tour-12

Our little dining area is not at all fancy. I found the tartan place mats last year at Target.

The table cloth is a piece of grey suiting fabric. I am into suitings this year for some reason.

No, I didn’t iron the fabric table cloth. I am rebelling against ironing this season.

Wrinkles are okay with me! They make the place look lived in. Ha!

Kitchen tour-11

The make shift center piece is a crystal bowl filled with battery operated lights, glitter and glass ornaments, and a set of silver angels my husband gave me on our first Christmas together.

I tucked a small round mirror in the bottom of the bowl to make it brighter.

Yarnball Wreath-2

Last but not least, is the Yarn Ball wreath on the front door.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Have a Merry Christmas!
