Cottage Christmas Decor

Yesterday was such a wonderful day. It started with a fantastic trip to the flea market. I spent the late morning working on some furniture projects, then I toured the most spectacular c. 1840 farm, owned by my new friend, Buddy. Finally, I came home and decorated my house for Christmas while listening to the Classical Christmas station on Pandora and drinking Granny Apple Woodchuck Hard Cider (one of my favs). Here are some pretty pictures of what my downstairs looks like today. I haven't done the upstairs yet. This is the first year I've had a real upstairs to decorate for holidays, and I need to make more wreaths!

  1. I love the small simple touches around your home. Much better than the Christmas overload I have had in the past. Delightful!

  2. Let's see

    your kitchen island . . . the shutters hanging on either side of your sofa . . . the side tables by the sofa . . . the long bench on the porch . . . W O N D E R F U L !!!

  3. I love how you've displayed the ornaments! My new apartment is tiny, and I'm trying to decide if I have room for a tree. This looks like a good option, if not:)

  4. You've got a fabulous old house filled with lots of interesting pieces of vintage furniture. I love your wood folk art whale in your sunporch!

  5. Such a charming kitchen and home!!! Love the pine floor in the kitchen and the island......
