a white christmas...

i'm so excited to be joining jann's creating christmas link party today!  i'm sharing my christmas home tour and at the bottom of my post will be a place for you to link up your white christmas decor/ projects.

this year i bought 3 small trees, this one is a 4 ft charlie brown tree.  it's sitting in an enamel pot, on an old suitcase and under all of  that, is an rusty doll buggy base. 


here's one side of my great room.  i added greens, burlap, and chalkboards to my white house for christmas this year.


and here's the other side.  in the corner is another new tree-this one is flocked.  i made the framed chalkboard with dear lillie's print.  we found the (green) wing back chairs in a junk store and i bought some ruffled slips for them from surefit.


i spent a day sewing several pillow slips using my computer to print the lettering, and iron on material.


i found the cutest little pair of skates and added sweater boot cuffs.





love this kitchen!


my husband just built the hood over the cooktop and i made the cottage sign.


the chunky posts under the sink were just installed.


i filled this new cubbie with wooden snowmen that i made.



the dining room mantle has the wish sign, star and sleigh sign that i made.


and this is the third new tree, a smaller version of the charlie brown tree.


i found the ruffled ticking place mats and vintage white napkins at hortons christmas vendor market.  for name tags this year, i painted wooden shapes with chalkboart paint.


the guest bedroom has a white tree in the corner, wings over the bed and a couple of signs that i made..


i also made the little angel and dressed her in a vintage christening gown.


i have an old floor lamp in my entry that holds a christmas bag filled with gifts.  love this lamp idea from anne:)


the front porch has a large star, tiny snowman and mistletoe pillow that i made.


and another  new sign is on the cottage door.


ok, it's your turn to link up anything white christmas.  (the post will be open until december 19th).  and by sure to check out alice from thoughts from alice tomorrow for some rustic inspiration and another party:)


thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful christmas season!

  2. Sooooo gorgeous, Lynn! Merry and bright. :)
    I haven't really started decorating yet. A few little things here and there, but won't cut & bring in a tree until closer to the 15th. If I get it together in time, I'll be sure to join your beautiful party!
    Hugs,

  4. Just lovely. I am admiring your stove top hood. My husband is going to build one for ours in the new year. We just finished painting all of our oak wood cabinets. I remember when you were doing yours...it all takes time. Our microwave is above the stove. Why they put it there, I have no idea. It could have fit above out oven easily. Enjoy the beauty of your white kitchen as part of your white Christmas which is all simply beautiful. Love the pillows you made! You need to open an etsy so we can buy some. xxo

  5. Lynn, gorgeous as I knew it would be! Loving your new trees and the additions to your cottage kitchen. The stove top hood and pillars by the sink are just the icing on the cake. All of your pillows are darling and I love the little display with the wooden snowmen. The old light is a great idea. I have one lurking in my garage. lol! And I may just need to add some boot socks to my skates. Cute, cute, cute! Sorry that there was a bit of confusion with the code. SO happy it worked!!
    hugs,
    Jann

  7. I am over the top in love with everything. I have to try making some pillows like yours. I bought the fabric to paint Christmas words on pillows, but haven't made the time. I have some iron on transfers so maybe I can make some before my day to show off on Friday.

  24. Lynn...I'm just in awe, I want to tell you how beautiful everything is but I just can't find the words and I would never have the space!! :)

    Each and every room is simply wonderful and I love that you simplified things but kept it warm, inviting and festive. Unbelievable. You outdid yourself!

    I hope to link up to your party. Is there a deadline? I'm still hard at work!

    I want to first thank you for coming over to visit my blog. I have never met you and you leaving me a comment is most appreciated! We meet such lovely people only when one takes the time to connect. THANK YOU!

    YOUR HOME IS BREATHTAKINGLY GORGEOUS! Oh how I want everything white, I do! But it would take more painting and my husband is just about done with me painting walls, woodwork and furniture! But your world is simply lovely.
