Farmhouse Christmas Decor

Welcome! It's Christmas at the B Farm. This year again I'm using my woodland/rustic theme with my Nutcracker collection thrown in for fun!

On the front porch, the bench got a simple wreath and I put large ornaments nestled among greenery in the urns:

There is always joy to greet you when you walk in the front door:

My metal basket is filled with a wintery, woodsy look complete with burlap, of course:

The entry table also has on its Winter finery:

Place card chickens

And the funky chickens are ready to p-a-r-t-y in their Santa hats:

Here's the tree with its woodland/rustic theme:

The angel Gail from Purple Hues and Me sent me

Sweet ornament I made to remind us of "The Reason For The Season"

My ornament last year from Vicky's Annual Ornament Exchange

One of my tin can lid ornaments
This year we used a bucket as part of the tree skirt then swirled some red burlap around that:

The fireplace has a snowy pine garland, burlap snowflakes, and several nutcrackers flanking my Christmas chalkboard:

And my small round chalkboard sits on the hearth with a bottle brush mouse:

The Uncle Sam Nutcracker is in the dining room:

In the kitchen, my Baker Nutcracker stands in the window:

Along with the egg basket filled with ornaments, and a cheery "ho ho ho":

For the kitchen door going out into the garage, I made a raggy wreath in reds and neutrals. I tied on some of my cookie cutters and a couple of metal mittens I found at Michaels:

The wreath was easy to make - I tore and cut strips from three different red materials and unbleached muslin, then tied them to a metal wreath frame until it was full. Love it!

heh, you can see the trash cans and barbecue pit out the window

The nice thing about this wreath is I can remove the mittens after Winter and it can then
stay up all year.

Even the bathroom has some Christmas cheer:

I really enjoy decorating my sweet little farmhouse. Now if it would just get cold enough for a fire in the fireplace...
