Sweet Clover means that we have been going full force HOLIDAY at the barn since the beginning of November, hosting three sales in the space of four weeks! But we are lucky that the madness ended last weekend so there is still time to focus on Christmas at home. And that's just what I've been doing this week.
My decorating inspiration this year is a mix of keep it simple and old school style and I can't think of a better way of sharing what I've come up with than via my sweet friend, Lindsay's Blogger Stylin' Home Tours Series.
Let's start in the family room where we snuggle by the fire and enjoy the sparkle of the Christmas tree.
last year. Below the star I created a snowy Christmas village with vintage putz mica houses interspersed with glittered houses rescued from the thrift store. All the houses even light up at night with battery operated string lights. The kids have taken to calling it the little town of Bethlehem.
We had these 12 days of Christmas glasses when I was growing up. I've managed to thrift up 9 of the 12 so far. The swizzle sticks are vintage from my Grandparents' home.
I snapped up this large scale canvas back in the Fall for less than $20. It's just propped up over the existing framed photograph that normally graces the entry. Perfect for a quick change after the Holidays. I also displayed a small vintage nativity scene here this year in place of our larger manager set.
Anthropologie store display that will make any Shiny Brite lover's heart beat a little faster! The boxes are too pretty to store away and cleanup will be a cinch when it's time to pack away the tree.
Thanks so much for coming along on the tour with me. I hope you will follow along with the rest of the tour series - The Inspired Room is the next stop. Be sure to start at the beginning of the tour if you are just joining us too!
