I made a discovery as I began looking for a photo for the Christmas header. . .
vintage farmhouse décor seems so versatile and always in style. . .I rarely buy new decorations each Christmas. I simply go to the cupboards, the attic, the barns, the garden house--anywhere I might find make-do items. . . I do keep an eye on the trends and sometimes tweak them to my style. . .I believe any time you decorate, it should make you happy. . .make you smile. . .eye candy for your heart. . .
Vintage Farmhouse Christmas décor is timeless. . .whether done two years ago or last week. . .It all fits. . .which is why I'm sharing links with you today to Christmases past at The Country Farm Home. . .I was finding inspiration myself as I reviewed a few old posts, so I thought you might, too. . .Let's face it. . .Few of us look at old posts. . .such a shame because every blog is filled with inspiration from past Christmases. . .With easier access, they can be a huge source to get the ole creative juices flowing. . .
So here's Christmases in Review. . .Hope you'll take the time to click on the links and visit a few of the most popular Christmases posts. . .Not enough time? . . .Then enjoy the photos below. . .They put me in the Christmas Spirit. . .Hope they do the same for you. . .
This was my all time favorite table setting
and a hit with our guests. . .
They couldn't believe I put a bucket and boots on the table. . .
I remember this was an impromptu idea one day while doing a little fire cooking. . .
A Christmas treat for my Honey. . .
It includes a recipe link for my original recipe for Moon Pie Bread Pudding. . .
I made some pretty unusual choices to decorate the cupboards. . .
but it's been my favorite. . .
Another table setting that was a hit. . .all white and gold, crystal and china, memories and fun. . .
Fresh evergreens are my favorites to decorate with. . .
very simple to fill a crock or carrier with them and add vintage kitchen tools. . .
How easy is that?
The theme for the entire house was natural objects, brown paper wrappings,
evergreens, red birds, lots of white and bright. . .
My love of geraniums inspired this post. . .
Another of my favorites because it was something I did special for us. . .
an evening by firelight, spiced bread and hot cider, candlelight, plump pillows, soft throws. . .Christmas music in the background. . .We decided to make this a yearly tradition. . .
I can see--and I'm sure you can--that my photo taking and editing has improved over the years. . .Practice does make perfect. . .Although I haven't reached perfection, I have enjoyed the challenge and learned so much. . .I have so loved sharing this journey with all of you. . .Hope there will be many more years to come. . .
Thanks for strolling down memory lane with me. . .
Hope it gives you a little inspiration in making your own Christmas a special one.
