The Start of our Christmas Decor

 OK, so I finally started to dress the place up with some Christmas decor. We all have our own style and mine is quite minimal compared to some and I don't like a lot of color. My family thinks it's boring-I think it's simple and pleasing.




I will be bringing out more decor and posting about it in about another week or so. This year I would like a small REAL tree and I hope  there is no spiders in it waiting to thaw!!!! eeek!

  4. Your Christmas decorations are very fitting for your home...simple, rustic and beautiful. I LOVE your mitten wreath :) I'd love to decorate a little more minimally but my kids are traditionalists and want the same colors and favorite ornaments as all the years before. My family room is done in white slipcovered furniture with gray accents and I thought I'd add some pops of red and some greenery here and there. Then we will all be happy!

    XO,

  5. I love your style and I love your holiday decorations. I like the simple look most of the time but I seem to go overboard every Christmas. Maybe one of these years I'll stick to my guns and keep it simple.

  10. Nice to meet you Melanie,
    Simple and pleasing perfect !
    I too decorate simple one tone White, Grey, Natural all the darker shades of white.

    Its really rather hard to decorate in these tones and keeping it simple like you have done with personality is even harder, it takes a keen eye to pull it together with uniqueness as you have done with soulful beauty.
    I could so move in, and I think you could move inro my home.
    Come for a visit would love to see you.

    Will be following and adding you to my sidebar of inspiration.

  13. Hi,

    I hope that this email finds you well.

    We have a large customer base of clients prepared to pay to display discrete adverts, contextually matched to the content of the page on high quality sites like yours, and this can be a great way to generate an income without compromising your website.

    Please email me back if you would be interested in finding out more and I will send you a follow-up email outlining the opportunity in more detail.

    I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

    1. Hello, sorry but your profile doesn't show me much information about you- and safari won't let me e-mail you when I click your e-mail link. I do not have much of a fan base at this point so I don't feel your clients would much benefit from trying to advertise on my page. Thank you for the offer!

  15. I just want to say I absolutely adore your home! I love how you've created the rustic primitive feel without being over-cluttered or too "staged". I actually just recently moved to Ontario, but I'm in the middle of Toronto, not much to inspire the rustic feel here. We are blessed to be in an old home with some character, but alas, we are just renting and can only do so much (also have no budget for home decor) Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, you have definitely inspired me.

    1. Thanks so much Ellei! I hope to add some more Christmas decor soon! We also have very little budget for home decor-I have managed to FIND great furniture and decor at Flea Markets, antique shops and roadside!! :)

  18. LoVing all your decorating! I have that same olde brown jug you have on the side table.How clever to hang the mittens on the wreath with old clothes pegs.I remember my sister having a pair of those ice skates with the strap and buckle. No doubt they were mine first :) Now I wonder what Mom did with them.. so many years ago,M.
