Cozy Christmas

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the Cozy at Christmas
Holiday Blog Tour.
A big thank you to Katie Let's Add Sprinkles for putting this together for us!
I'm so happy that you've taken time out of your busy day to hop over for a visit!
I love the Christmas season and am so excited to share our holiday home with you!
This year I've gone with a lot of Naked Greenery out on the front porch that helped bring about my dream of having a Tree Farm of my own.
I also included a cocoa bar for some sippin and dippin
of candy canes.

Although were going naked out on the porch, step inside and you'll see that it is far from that.
Yes, I'll be the first to admit that I am not a minimalist.  My mothers motto was, "the more the merrier"; and I'm afraid I adopted the same attitude.  :)
I use many of the same things every year, but move them around for a totally different look.  I am crazy in love with plaid and this year it landed in my entry.
I've corralled together my collection of picnic tins and thermoses.  Our family has a love for the outdoors.  Hoping we find some time to snowshoe this year.
Years ago I taught Tole painting.  I have to keep a couple of things that I painted.  This Night Before Christmas book is one of them.
My style is very eclectic and I don't stick with one theme throughout my home.
I found this metal deer at a damaged goods store.  I dressed him up for my living room mantle with a vintage beaded garland and baubles around his neck.
I love creating and made this little scene in an old drawer I picked up at a thrift shop for $.50 cents.  The deer is an old perfume bottle.

My favorite new creation is this ornament tree.  We made them in craft group and it was so fun!

A few of my thermoses found their way into a tray with one of my blow mold Santas and a thrift find candle.

My Maleig elf has found the perfect spot to sit and enjoy his Christmas book!
Hubby made this peg board for me so I would have somewhere to display my cute chairs that I scored in Colorado. 
Remember the year that lime green and red were really popular?  Well, I have one tote full.  I decided to use it in our
 bedroom this year.


Now let's step into the family room.
A few presents have been wrapped and placed under the tree.  I used a hand crochet spread for the tree skirt.
I will be sharing more of my mantle in a later post.
Christmas is definitely a Holly Jolly time of year.  I am loving the chalk art my friends daughter did for me!
I made the ornament wreath a couple years ago.

This year in the kitchen I am going for a 50's theme.
I'll be sharing more of it next week for our 'Creating Christmas' link party.  My theme is 'a dish addicts Christmas'.  I confess, I definitely am one!
I love using my jadite dishes at Christmas!  This shade of green is delightful with red.
Vintage Christmas is my favorite and I have created vignettes throughout our home using some of my favorite finds.
A collection of tree toppers light up and twinkle at night.
I adore my collection of pinecone elves.  They have the
 sweetest faces!
A Christmas scene I created on a large tart tin.

I hope you enjoyed visiting our home!
It has felt like spring lately here in UT.  Yesterday morning we woke up to snow and it really helped to bring about the Christmas spirit!
I'm wishing you all the merriest of Christmases! 
Please visit the other participants.  They have so much wonderful inspiration to share with us all!

Oh my goodness! I love it all, but I am a little obsessed with your ornament tree. Now I want to make one this minute. Thanks for a lovely tour of your amazing Christmas home.

Cecilia said...

I love all your decor! I like the "more the merrier" look. 😉 And red and lime green is still one of my favorite combos! Hard to pick a favorite- I like all of it but your plaid thermoses and picnic baskets are wonderful! What a fun tour of your home!

So many pretties, but I must say that the snowshoe vignette is my favorite. So creative and pretty! And who doesn't love a hot cocoa bar? This tour has been one of my favorites so far this season.

Merry Christmas!

Jann a visit to your home always fills me with such delight. I am such a lover of vintage and your present it so beautifully with your amazing vignettes. It is such a joy to share this tour with you.

Happy@Home said...

Absolutely adorable. You have so many charming vintage pieces and have displayed them so nicely. I'm curious to know how you made your mantle garland with the vintage ornaments hanging from it. I have my parent's collection of ornaments but lately they never make it out of the attic. I'm thinking this garland would be a nice way to display them.
Love your snowy ending to the post. Just like the best Christmas movie, it always ends with a snowfall :).

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Everything is beautiful and so festive, Jann!

Stacey said...

I just love your creative style, Jann. I love how you collect so many things and put them together so well. Your big tree is amazing!

Jeanie said...

I'm with you on eclectic style, Jann. Life is too short for just one thing! And boy, speaking of one thing -- it's impossible to pick one or even two or three photos here that are my favorites. Each one is like opening the next piece of chocolate on an advent calendar! You wonder what it will be and you know it will be more delicious than the last!
