Farmhouse Christmas Decor + Vintage Card Catalog

Well hellllllo there and happpppy Monday to you!! How ya doing after the long holiday weekend? I’m feeling pretty darn good today because I basically got the entire house decorated for Christmas this weekend. You guys know I was waiting a bit longer than I did last year to decorate, so this weekend I wanted to get as much done as possible so I can start sharing fun holiday posts with you guys. It was a full-blown Christmas frenzy–we got all the trees up, lights have been hung, and the decor is in full swing. I’m super close to being done with everything and I can’t wait to start sharing it all! Today I want to kick off my holiday posts with my beloved vintage card catalog. You guys know how much I loooooove my card catalog. I’m basically obsessed with this thing and it really has become one of my favorite spots to decorate. I especially love changing it up as the seasons come and go, so I was really looking forward to decorating it for Christmas this year. I kept it pretty simple, but I’m loving how it turned out. Come seeeeee!

This little corner is bursting with Christmas cheer and it just makes me so happy. I didn’t plan on putting a Christmas tree in our dining room this year, but I found this one last week for super cheap so I couldn’t resist. I actually grabbed two of them. And I gotta say, I kinda love having a tree in this corner. It’s just so fun. Give me allllllll the Christmas trees!

I wanted to keep this look pretty simple, so I just used three mini trees, some old books and candlesticks, a yummy Christmas candle, and these ceramic tea light houses. I also used these super cute knit stockings I found at Target recently.

I found those spools of Christmas twine at Michael’s last week and I love them. I’ve used the twine for a few different projects (which you’ll see soon!) but they’re also cute just sitting in this old wooden doughbowl. Easy and simple for the win!

Last year I decorated with lots of deep reds and greens for Christmas, but this year I wanted to try something different. When I started planning out my holiday decor I decided to create more of a frosty white Christmas with lots of natural wood tones, neutrals, and soft texture with just a few subtle pops of red in the mix. I wanted it to be super simple, yet full of cozy farmhouse vibes. I’m actually loving the change and I feel like it’s much more “me”, if that makes sense. I even did a little DIY flocking on a bunch of my mini Christmas trees from last year to give them a new fresh look. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out, so I’m planning to share a little review of that process very soon!

Well I hope you enjoyed seeing this little corner in our dining room. Thanks so much for stopping in and spending part of your day with me. I hope you have a fabulous week! xoxo

    Hi
    Good Morning,
    I also did my interior decorating this year for Christmas. I love this post today and I am wondering where you purchased the tree in the basket on the chair? I have a chair that I would love to put this on in the corner of my hallway that you can see from my dining room. I also have a basket if the tree comes without one. Enjoy a blessed day in your cozy Christmas house. I love this time of year being at home.

    Love your blog friend,
    Tammy

  • Sometimes I wonder what my kids will think when they look back on these little squares I share here everyday.

And even on the hard days & the days I feel like I can’t do it all, I love this life & I’m so grateful to God for every minute of it. 💛🙏

  • Happy Friday!! 🙋‍♀️ I’m talking about one of my favorite things on the blog today: SKINCARE!! You guys, for the first time ever this week I got on stories with NO makeup. Not one drop of foundation or concealer on my face & no filter. I know that may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but as someone who’s seriously struggled with skin issues throughout her entire life, it’s a HUGE step for me. I’ve always felt SO self-conscious of my skin & it’s been a struggle since I was in high school. But my skin has improved so much & I owe that to @tula. I’ve been religiously using their products for close to two years now & I’ve seen major improvements through that time. 🙏🙏 I shared all about their holiday gift kits on the blog today, so hop over there if you want to check it out. They’re offering some amazing kits, so now is a great time to stock up on your favorites & of course they make great gifts too. AND the kind folks at @tula gave me a new coupon code for you guys—you can use SARAHJOY for 20% off your order 🎉🎉 #partner #tula
