A Farmhouse Christmas.
I am joining eight other blogs to celebrate a homespun,
homemade and Farmhouse-style Christmas.
I have looked forward to this event for weeks.
Wait until you see the other ladies who are participating…
I am talking awesome with a capital A.
Last week, I shared my Farmhouse Christmas Table…
I also shared my Breakfast Room and Hutch during my
There are several styles of decor within my home.
From English to Traditional. But in our kitchen..
I grew up with Farmhouse-style living on a large
NC Tobacco Farm. So everyday was “Farmhouse” to me.
This style represents “home” to me.
During my trip to Georgia when I attended the
Country Living Fair and visited with my dear friend, Deb at
I lucked upon a beautiful Tobacco Basket at a great price.
I hung it on the front porch, and added a magnolia and red
apple wreath to it. The red-ticking ribbon I have used
throughout the kitchen and breakfast room was used
on the porch, too.
I still have a few touches to make on the front porch, but I promise
to show you the full reveal next week.
Don’t you just love the cozy tartan plaid throw and felt deer pillow?
And did you happen to catch my oh-so-easy
Snowball Ornaments yesterday?
If you didn’t I won’t tell you what they are made of and spoil
the surprise. And, the laugh.
But, I made a few more and they are nestled in an urn filled
Black lanterns light the way.
Let’s head into the kitchen…I have cafe mochas waiting for
us because it’s kinda chilly here in Eastern NC.
For the record, this is a “working kitchen.”
AKA – I cook every night.
So, although I would love for my kitchen to be magazine
worthy – I still need it to function for me. So, I added smaller
touches here and there…all with a Farmhouse feel.
On the Sink side of our Kitchen…
A chalkboard sign by the coffee station says…
“Coffee puts the Fa in your La!”
My white Roo is filled with fresh ivy, rosemary, balsam
and red berries. A gingerbread baking pan leans against the wall.
My favorite English pottery jug I bought at the
Portobello Road Market is filled with fresh
greenery, as well.
The large white platter gets a Farmhouse touch with a greenery
and berry wreath hung by a red-ticking bow.
On the opposite side of the sink…
Small boxwood wreaths adorn each cabinet door hanging from
Btw, I have received a ton of inquiries about this
red-ticking ribbon, and YES I will be selling it next year in
my shop, Farmhouse Decor, along with some other
fabulous ribbons like this one.
A added a small pinecone to a silver egg cup…
And a vintage colander is filled with greenery and a
Mason Jar with fresh cranberries and floating candle.
A wire farmhouse basket from my shop is filled with shiny red
and white balls…
I absolutely adore the creamware cupcake stands.
I used one to hold mini ornaments…
The vintage snowman muffin pan is one of my favorite finds.
An ironstone tureen holds vintage cookie cutters and mini loaf pans.
I have a new find… and another new item I will be carrying in my shop.
A fabulous Farmhouse Ladder…
It was the perfect place to hang my French Grain Sack stockings…
And no Farmhouse Kitchen is complete without some
Cleetus is very proud to be the Barnyard Marshall.
His magnolia and cotton wreath is tied with a generous
Ceramic Cow Creamers stand guard beside a wood tool box
filled with greenery, berries and Mason Jar candle holders.
So, that is my Farmhouse Kitchen.
Handmade. Vintage. Natural Elements.
All created with Love.
Because after all, without love – it doesn’t matter
how your home is decorated does it?
Thank you for coming by to visit me.
