Handmade Christmas Ornaments | Three to Make in a Day

I rarely, if ever, share two blog posts in one day.  But when I was invited to participate in a fall seasonal harvest tour, and 31 days of handmade ornaments, on the same day, I couldn’t say no. 🙂 I’m the blogger for day #5 of handmade ornaments (the links to the bloggers for the whole month are below). I started out having a hard time deciding what kind of ornament to make.  But then I found these binder clips and {Read More}

Valentine Projects: Farmhouse Friday

Valentines Day… do you decorate for it, or not?  I’m kind of lazy when it comes to Valentines Day, so the only time I make new Valentine projects is if I find something easy, and it fits in with the rest of my farmhouse decor.

Farmhouse Christmas Tree and Gingerbread House “Issues”

I wanted a  simple farmhouse Christmas tree with lots of handmade ornaments this year.Our Christmas tree is far from magazine perfect, but when I finished decorating it and my oldest son saw it, he commented about how nice he thought it looked. If it meets with my family’s approval, that’s really all that matters.

Christmas Entryway Welcome Home Tour

Hello everyone!   I’ve been a busy bee, and can’t wait to show you my Christmas entryway! I don’t decorate my entire house for every season and holiday.  It’s just too much work, but I did want the entryway to look welcoming and festive. The entryway remodel is almost finished, and it’s down to deciding what to do about the floor, but my husband built me a wall hutch that I couldn’t wait to decorate for the holidays. It has 3 tall vertical shelves and 1 {Read More}

Thanksgiving

  I know everyone in the US is getting ready for Thanksgiving, and I am too, but I wanted to show you  a few projects created by some of my readers, using my Mrs. Claus Cookie Co. printable that I shared last year. This adorable baking theme tree was created by Heidi, one of my Facebook readers, and she used the printable to make a charming ornament.  Isn’t it adorable?! And Holly at Coconut Head’s Survival Guide used it inside this {Read More}

Make a Santa Inspired Pallet Wood Christmas Tray

Mr. Claus has been a wee bit jealous that I’ve made a lot of projects dedicated to his wife, so it was time to give give the jolly old guy some attention too, with a pallet wood Christmas tray.  I wouldn’t want to get on his naughty list!

Very Simple Christmas Decor

After declaring my goal of not exhausting myself this holiday season, and doing very simple Christmas decor in my house as much as possible, I looked around to see what would require only minor tweaking to make it look festive for Christmas, and I spotted the boxwood wreaths that I hung over some of my favorite old platters. They’ve been there since spring, when I participated in a Design Ingenuity event, and I knew it would be really easy to make {Read More}

Farmhouse Christmas Ornament

When my kids were younger, our Christmas tree was pretty random looking, with an assortment of kid-made ornaments, and store bought ones, but the last few years, I’ve done most of the decorating and have gone with a theme for the tree.  Two years ago, I did a “Vintage White” theme, last year, I did a “Gold and Glittery” theme, and this year I decided I want to do an “old-fashioned farmhouse Christmas” theme.

Inexpensive Rustic Fall Centerpiece – Home for Fall

Every year at this time, I have to wear blinders when I go into stores, because we have lots of fall and winter birthdays in our family, and if I hope to put a Thanksgiving meal on the table and have any presents under the tree, I can’t spend money on ready-made decor. So when I found out that Hometalk was hosting a “Home for Fall” blog hop, I wanted to participate, but I challenged myself to do it without buying a single {Read More}

Halloween Sheet Music

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball, and this was a curve ball kind of week. As I mentioned recently, my parents are here  for a two week visit, but they left for a few days to visit other extended family.  When they returned back to my house last night, my dad tripped over one of our dogs, and fell on the concrete right outside my door.  I called for an ambulance and he was taken to the ER.
