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.



Welcome!!
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!

  5. Thank you for another year of wonderful inspiration. Unfortunately the discount code for Balsam Hill doesn't work for the Australian site. But they do make lovely trees :)
