I love to dress our home for the holidays..... With vintage ornaments that have been passed down from one generation to another, these wonderful ornaments have timeless charm ~ the more scraped and scuffed, the better, and to fill our home with all of the elements of nature, pine cones and aromatic boughs.... the perfect fit for a Country Home.
Our home is brought to life through warm colors and soft and comfy furniture ~ for me that's what a country home should be. Much of the way I decorate is nostalgic, with so many wonderful memories of my Mom and Aunt Dorothy taking all of us kids out to our grandparents country farm and bringing home lots of greenery, branches, boughs and a tree that filled our living room.
The most important part of the season is to spend time with my family and grandkids. And I always look forward to my sister, Jan and her family, coming to our home on Christmas Eve. Just thinking about it makes me happy!
This Christmas, I wish you days filled with snowy walks, nights that sparkle with candlelight and conversation, and the very best of all your traditions new and old. Merry Christmas to you, your family and friends!!
