A Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room...

I hope you are doing well and enjoying this beautiful season. 

It is such a special time of year, but it can also be so packed-full! There are days, and those nights (when your head hits the pillow but your eyes open wide), when you wonder how you will get it all done. 

But you will friend. 

Now say it to me. ;)

And if we don't get it all done... we'll learn to have more grace with others, 
and perhaps even with ourselves.

Share Your Style Party {No. 95}

Welcome to the 95th Share Your Style party and to the most wonderful time of the year!  Thank you for so generously sharing your inspiration and time with us.  When you join the party your link is added to five different blogs, so lots of exposure.  Remember to share our link in your post somewhere so others can find us.  I am Lynn, aka The Vintage Nest, and pleased to be your host today. I have the privilege of choosing the featured posts this week. So let's go. Happy Party.  


Everyday Living sets a gorgeous holiday tablescape, elegant and rustic with a touch whimsy. Adore those "woody" chargers.

It's cookie gift giving season and cookie exchange parties too. I went to at least two cookie parties every Christmas when my boys were school age and just loved them.  Paula of Frog Prince Paperie, gives us some great and fun ideas on how to package the cookies.

My goodness, how decadent and festive are these Peppermint Oreo Truffles. Easy to make and presented to us by the blog All Because She Saved.

Debra of Common Ground has put together a delightful vignette, just by using simple Christmas items she has gathered.  So much more charming than just having each piece sitting as a single.  Don't you think?  Love that tartan box.

And lastly Shannon of Belle Bleu Interiors shows us her 2016 mantel. I adore this. I am seeing more and more prints and paintings of Santa and the holidays incorporated into the d├ęcor and I think it is just charming.

Thank you so much for joining us and if you were featured, we would love for you to grab the feature button for your blog.   Until next time... The Share Your Style group

Holiday Fun for Kids (Christmas Games and Activities)

As an adult, Christmas seems to come so fast each year!

But as a child, it is just. so. hard. to wait. 

The snow is softly falling outside, and I'm excited to share some fun ideas for the little ones in your life. Maybe you're hosting a family gathering, a party, or just looking for something to keep your children busy as they count down the days till Christmas...

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's still dark outside, the sun has yet to come up. It's quiet in our home, except for the soft patter of rain on the roof. Soon I will start peeling the sweet potatoes, and looking over recipes. I'll try to figure out how to time more casseroles and side dishes in one day than we typically have in a week. 

But first, I want to express my gratitude to you.

Grain Sack for Christmas and a Magazine Feature!

This is a good, but busy, week around here.... Parent-teacher conferences (half days of school), getting ready to host Thanksgiving, a 5th grade World Fair, a 1st grade Thanksgiving party, and decorating our home for Christmas. Did I mention that over the weekend I decided to take on a project in our living room? The timing just felt right. ;)

I'm guessing I'm in good company with you all. 

I look forward to sharing our living room project with you soon. But today, I thought I'd share one of my favorite things to decorate with at Christmastime...
European grain sacks.

I love the pops of red that grain sack pillows add to our mostly neutral decor...

Farmhouse Living: Weekend Inspiration

Happy weekend, friends!

Our front porch is starting to look cheery, two local radio stations have begun playing Christmas music, and our seven-year-old has officially started marking off the days on his hand-made countdown until December 25th. It's coming!
