Welcome, everyone! I'm so excited that Jann asked me to be a part of her Creating Christmas Link Party this year!
My theme is 'Rustic Christmas.'
It's no secret that I LOVE incorporating a rustic vibe to my decor...rough wood, chippy patina, rusty metal, and the raw simplicity of vintage items really speak to me! (Aka Good Junk!)
My dining room is one of my favorite rooms to decorate for Christmas as the pale green walls and dark green painted floor create a perfect backdrop. This space really reflects the rustic aesthetic, and this holiday season I've used a lot of natural elements such as greenery and pinecones, along with some splashes of red for festivity.
I hope that you enjoy this tour of my 'rustic' dining room!
Thanks again to Jann for including me in 'Creating Christmas'! I hope that you'll join in and link up your holiday decor here, then be sure to visit the others the rest of this week!
Have a wonderful day :)

Hi, everyone! I thought I'd show you a few festive touches that I've added to my front hallway.
To see the 'fall' decorated version of this area, go here.
First I gathered together some of my favorite tarnished silver pieces (I've got quite a collection!) on a tray...
...then added some moss balls, feathers, pinecones...
...and a couple of little trees.
Gotta love nature's bounty!
There's just something about all these vibrant green hues that makes me happy!
Of course I had to include a little dash of red, which I'm using a lot of this season, by winding a small piece of ribbon throughout the tray.
I just got these feathers at an antique mall, and I think they compliment the greens in this silver loving cup.
I brought in a large, heavy concrete urn from the sunroom and topped it with a HUGE moss ball that I got at Arhaus a few years ago...
...then I hung a couple of big pinecones...
...along with a chalkboard that I 'stole' from my shop!
I just left the other shelves the same, with my banana crate and ham and bacon bin...
And that's how I 'deck my halls'!
I hope that you enjoyed seeing this little section of my hallway.
Please join Jann (Have a Daily Cup of Mrs.Olsen) in her Creating Christmas link party starting Sunday December 8th at Organized Clutter Queen.
I'll be one of her stops (featuring more of my rustic Christmas decor) starting Monday night December 9th!
Thanks for stopping by-have a great day! :)

Hi, everyone! Although I have an extremely tiny kitchen, I still want it to be BIG on holiday cheer! (You gotta work with what you have-ha! )
So this year I've used lots of punches of red to brighten things up in this cozy space.
I hope that you enjoy the tour!
(These skates are extra-special because they were my dad's when he was young!)
Well, I hope that you found my tiny kitchen festive!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic day :)
