Christmas At Our Home!

 Sending out some Christmas cheer, European Farmhouse Style!  I hope you enjoy our holiday decor!

  Our courtyard maintains it's natural elements with just a pop of red.

One of my favorite natural elements is driftwood.  Since we are walking distance to the beach we have plenty of it available. I use it year round.  These muscle baskets hold driftwood all year long, but at Christmas, I add a tiny tree with a few lights.

My wisteria vines have only a few leaves left so we wrap the arbor with some fresh green garland.

 Come on in.....our use of natural elements is carried through the inside of our home as well

 I chose the Silver Tip tree for it's airy look and it's muted "silvery" green tones. It was perfect in this old olive bucket.

I used natural wood elements, clear bulbs and chandelier droplets as ornaments. I went shopping for some vintage toys this year and could not resist the Tonka fire truck and teddy bear. They will make a great gift
for a special little one.

 I LOVE the little Scandinavian ornaments from Splendid Willow Avenue.  They add just the right amount of red to my natural decor! 

I also added a tiny counter top tree in the kitchen

and found some cool vintage ornaments for decoration.  The deer are actually made of paper mache and wax. I found them at a local antique mall. 

I hung a few small wreaths on the old iron windows, and added lots of greenery

pine cones

and more driftwood!!  It"s so beautiful with the green garland

Even the doors get a few sprays of green

The table centerpiece also gets a bit of lavender-my personal favorite!

I added some greenery to my hutch this year. It looks so pretty against the silver and china.

My little shadow...Macy. She thinks it's time for dinner :)!


I incorporate natural and garden elements into my decor all year round for a calm and comfortable feel.

 Thank you for reading and our sincerest wishes to all for a happy holiday season!

We always appreciate your comments too!
