Christmas at Home with a Homemade Touch

Merry Christmas! I've been working on "Christmasfying" our home. I like keeping it simple and elegant.

Cranberries in water with greenery and floating candles.


Garland on the kitchen windowsill

A branch spray painted with silver for the table.

Secretary desk

A large glass vase filled with ornaments = simplicity!

A mini touch of Williamsburg. This is just a cake plate with greenery and fresh fruit. I also use faux red apples, but I'm still searching the house for those.  It's still a work in progress:)

Have a blessed holiday season!

  1. I love the clock on your mantel. The cabinet with the wreath looks so much like a cabinet we once owned. When we moved to our little cottage and downsized, we had to eliminate a lot of pieces. I had forgotten about it. Thanks for invoking a memory.

    1. Thank you so much for writing! Merry Christmas and I know what you mean about many things trigger Christmas memories for me, too.

  2. Kathy, everything looks lovely! You've done a great job of making your home look lovely and festive while still looking peaceful and serene. Love it!

  3. Your home looks lovely! Thanks for visiting Marty's Musings. Your idea to use my scrap wood Christmas tree for cards is a great one!

  4. You're so welcome and I really enjoyed reading your blog:)

  5. What a beautiful home you have! I am new to your blog and have enjoyed reading some of you past posts. Looking forward to visiting again~
