Today Tracie from Fishtail Cottage is hosting our ‘Creating Christmas’ link party.
I love the charm that a Cottage Christmas brings! I love cottage style and the thought that usually comes to mind is pretty pastels. At Christmas however, I love a red & white cottage Christmas!
It might be something as simple as a pretty Amaryllis waiting to burst into bloom. Planted in a mossy pot and sitting on a dotty cake stand. I tucked a little transferware saucer in back.
A collection of cottage style planters in my windowsill.
A rustic hurricane lantern with a vintage postcard on a toile tablecloth.
I’ve added assorted trees to the shelf that I lined with my newly found red transferware.
I found this sweet tree at a local shop for $6. It has stamped birds on corrugated paper. Reminds me of upside down cupcake holders.
My thoughts always lean towards cottage when ever I use dried Hydrangeas. I did a grouping with my vintage birdcages on top of the cabinet in our entry and tucked a few of those gorgeous blooms in amongst a faux garland.
I filled it with more birds and hung my Christmas postcard garland. A lot of them have images of birds.
I just framed this redwork piece.
I love redwork! I found this cute pattern and the muslin in a kit at a thrift store. It was just waiting for me to stitch it up! I added a few beads here and there amongst the berries.
I love touches of aqua with red!
