Christmas Utility Room


The utility room is one of the most hardworking and necessary rooms in our home.   I'm in and out of the utility room all day long,    so I have tried to turn it into a happy place rather than just somewhere to do the laundry.   

 I  decorate it for the seasons and holidays just like I do the rest of our home.

Christmas Tree Farm Mantel


There is nothing like going to a Christmas tree farm and cutting down your own tree.    If your family has never done it.....you really should put it on your bucket list!

How to Build a Farm on your Christmas Tree


The weather has been gorgeous here in Eastern New Mexico the last few days so I've been working on my Thanksgiving decor.     Today is cold, rainy,  and windy,     so THAT put me in the mood to play with some Christmas decor 

  I am creating Thanksgiving and Christmas in our home at the same time....lol!   The kitchen and formal dining room have Thanksgiving decor in them and I am slowly decorating the family dining/ living area for Christmas.      A little Christmas mixed in with the Thanksgiving decor doesn't hurt anything....does it!

Thanksgiving Vignettes in the Kitchen



Now that Halloween has come and gone,   it's time to decorate our home for Thanksgiving.     Our family is grateful for all of our many blessing all year long,   but we seem to think about them more at Thanksgiving.

   I usually decorate the two rooms we are in the most during the Thanksgiving holiday.....the kitchen and the dining room.   I've pretty well decorated the rest of the house for Christmas by then....lol!

Inside my Fall Shed


The little shed H built out in the back yard was originally a potting shed / greenhouse.    Over the years,   it has become much more than just that......it is a place where H & I can relax and enjoy the sun on cool fall days.    There is a big fan in there,   so when we are working in the yard on a hot summer day we can step in there and rest where its cool.

Why I love Farmhouse Style


I love the Farmhouse  decorating style that is so popular right now. 
  It's nothing new for me though,    I have always loved the Farmhouse look.      Perhaps,  it is because I come from a long line of farmers.

Halloween Entry......Black Hats Society


I wrote a post a few days ago about Willow,   my Halloween witch.     I did a "photo shoot" of her on the front porch since the lighting is just wonderful out there    After I finished,   Willow moved inside where she will enjoy the Halloween festivities from the entry.
