Farmhouse Christmas Tour

Old Man Winter has taken residence at the farm.
Our days are frosty, snow flurry, blowy, wintery cold.
Our nights are icy cold.

Inside the farmhouse it is warm and cozy,
with holiday decor galore,
and the aroma of countless batches of cookies.

Won't you come inside for some hot tea and cookies?

I have been having fun playing with royal icing...
bringing snowflakes

and gingerbread boys to life.

The 12 foot great room tree is adorned with snowmen
and woodland critters.

This year we have the joy of seeing Christmas
through the eyes of a little one.
Our grandson Tyler is mesmerized by the lights.

Snowmen have moved into the great room
to escape the wintry chill outside.

A lucky few found a place on the hearth
beside the roaring fire.

The master bedroom made an overnight transition,
from this....

to this....

with Santa profiles and a tree in front of the window.

A few favorite whimsical Santas complete the
holiday transformation.

The Victorian guest room has a tiny tree

decorated with mercury glass balls
and homemade glittery ornaments.

Love those vintage graphics combined with glitter.

Butterflies with German glass glitter were
a quick and easy project.

This piece of furniture was crafted from
pieces of old furniture,
repurposed into a coat rack/blanket chest.

Mercury glass ornaments and baubles...

A glilttery banner of tin stars proclaims
"Winter Welcome"

A tree in the loft continues the Woodland Christmas theme
with owls and bears, cardinals, pinecones
and Buffalo check garland.

The kitchen and dining room are decked in snowflakes
and icicles.

On the tree...

And in the air....

With all this snow, we've ended up with more snowmen.

Fresh greensand mini lights in an antique crate on the dining table...

So now you see what I've been up to these past two weeks.

Bev your home looks so warm and inviting. What wonderful decorations and warmth in every picture. I am sure Tyler is just dazzled with it all.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.
More snow coming here so we are into the Christmas spirit with the weather never mind the ongoing shopping to prepare for the day.
Baking seems to never end with everyone enjoying nice warm treats from the oven.
Enjoy..Judi B.
