Farmhouse Christmas

Between the painting of rooms, listing of items on Etsy, shipping items, and being a good mom I have been trying to get my house decorated for Christmas. This year I am trying to go for a more subtle and rustic look. I was thrilled to find this sled at the thrift store last month, I have been looking for an antique sled for awhile now. I love that it is black, shocking I know:)

The lantern and the cobbler stand were both $1 flea market finds. The little  picture above the sled is a framed pencil drawing of a house that is remarkedly similar to ours, it even has the giant weeping willow out front like we do.

These small antique pearl colored ornmanents are festive but subtle and look pretty in a little shabby bowl. My mom and sister are coming to visit tomorrow so that we can all go shopping at Romantique Boutique in Erie. I have been going on about it so much that they are both dying to go. I can't wait to see what the boutique looks like for Christmas, I always leave there so inspired. Isn't that the best feeling?! 


  1. Looks great! I love the dark sled against all the white. You have the prettiest doors in your farmhouse!


    1. Thanks! I love that our house still has all it's original doors, definitely one of the things that made me fall in love with it!

  2. I love your rustic touches. I've been wanting to try it also but I just can't seem to give up my winter wonderland filled with glitter stuff. It's wonderful for me that I get to look at such pretty pictures like yours to get my fix of rustic holiday charm.

    The sled is amazing, what a great find. Happy Shopping can't wait to see what you come home with.

  3. Love it all...your taste is to die for!!! Enjoy your Sunday...Chrissy
