Our family made a lot of special memories at the Farmhouse this year. We decided that one of the gifts we would give each other would be the gift of time, so we made it a priority to spend more time together than we have in the past years. We treasured the time together with family movie nights, baking Christmas treats, reading stories, decorating, game nights, singing Christmas carols, hosting parties for our friends, family devotionals, etc. It caused us all to slow down and focus on the real reason we celebrate Christmas, Jesus Christ's birthday!
The decorations in a home don't make it Christmas, but they sure do add to the experience and excitement of the season. Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things, and I loved the challenge of decorating a new home this year. I hope you all enjoy the tour through the Farmhouse!
Meet my new best Christmas friend, Tartan Plaid.
And natural garland & greenery are my absolute favorites. The aroma and textures are wonderful!
I kinda have a thing for Christmas hand towels...
My dad made this with an empty wine bottle and a string of lights! How cute is that? It adds a lot of jolly festiveness to the wetbar.
Add a poinsettia to a room - and voila!
My grandmother loved her Christmas cactus - so my mom and I each bought one this year in honor of her
My new gift wrap station definitely came in handy!
Santa even liked the antler hat rack...I hope he didn't tell Rudolph about it!
This cable knit blanket...softest, most wonderful thing. And it's from Target!!
My precious mom has needlepointed gorgeous Christmas stockings for me, Hubs, and our oldest...she is currently working on the one for little miss priss which will be ready for Christmas next year! These are such precious gifts and we will always cherish them! The other 3 are for the pups and barn cat!
Thank you for visiting! I wish each of you a blessed 2014!
