Home for the Holidays- Holiday Housewalk

It is that time of year again... the one with all the twinkles, Christmas trees 
and lots of merry & bright.

And today I am sharing a tour of some of our rooms dressed for Christmas.

I am joining Jenn Rizzo for her Holiday Housewalk which is always such a treat. Don't forget to go over to her blog and start at day one. 

If you are coming over from Craftberry Bush- Welcome!! 

I will keep the talking to a minimum- I am actually in the middle of decking a 100+ year old farmhouse right now- and that will be coming to the blog soon- along with quite a few more tours of the rest of our home, little cottage and barn and greenhouse.

But here is  a peek at a couple of the rooms- let's get started.

Our new dutch door is wearing simple fresh greens - 
I love how the seeded glass reflects the light.

In the kitchen-  just a DIY citrus garland on a wee potted tree with a few pieces of copper.

A fresh garland on the table and a chunky tree in a bucket at the end
adds a festive touch in the dining room.

These are our velvet napkins- available in our shop.

Across the way- the fireplace is wearing a frosty garland with pinecones
 and natural touches. The snowy branch wreath is a favorite- 
and love that the timer turns it on and off every day

And our Frosted Yukon Spruce from Balsam Hill twinkles away in the corner.

Brawner- one of our grand dogs
 loves sleeping right next to it. We put the hat on him for a Christmas card photo
and he sat in front of the tree and then decided it was nap time. :)

The living tree is covered in simple shades of gold and white- with beaded garlands , crystal garlands and love these beaded ornaments

Down the hall- my office has a wee sparse 'Charlie Brown' tree twinkling away- 
though it might have changed already- you will see a few changes soon.
I used small ornaments and beaded garland on this beautiful wispy Balsam Fir.

In our bedroom- one of my new favorites this year- 
the Grand Canyon Cedar tree is simple French style perfection.

You can see the rest of the bedroom tour here

In the bathroom- just a few fresh greens, candles and blooms 

And a cedar wreath above the bathtub.

In the attic- I am still working on this years look- but it might have a wee bit of red from a recent shoot.

and the cutest little mice have moved in too.

Outside- the greenhouse is just starting to get a bit of Christmas cheer

and the barn is already twinkling away.

More of the look in here coming this weekend-
 and shop the look with the links above- and 
don't forget to use 

I am off to get back to decking the farmhouse halls.

Up next- Zevy Joy-
Happy Housewalking everyone!
