Christmas Decor

Winter Wreath Giveaway with Lynch Creek Farm.

I’m teaming up with Lynch Creek Farm to offer my followers a chance to win a fresh winter wreath!  Read on…

I’ve been so exited for this package to arrive in the mail.  My very first fresh wreath from Lynch Creek Farm! Let me tell you, the quality of this wreath is exquisite. I had a few ideas of where I wanted this wreath to go.  When I saw how beautiful it was in person I decided to make it the focal point of my mantel.

I selected the Winter Radiance wreath in 26″ but they have many different sizes and styles to select from. Check them out here!

Since I already incorporated silver and some black in my mantel I swapped out my hammered metallic mirror for this stunning wreath. All the pine and natural materials in the wreath are from trees located in the pacific north west.

I added some greenery of my own from left overs cut from Christmas tree’s.  I trimmed them and just placed them in to bring the green down around my stocking holder.


I have an outlet below the wreath so I placed these oversize snowflakes there to hide it.  I also tucked these oversized ornaments on the bed of greenery.




The light up metallic stars I had from Michaels a couple years ago and I just nestled them in as well to continue the metallic look.

Welcome to the Magical and Merry Holiday Home Tour!

I’m teaming up with a group of talented home decor blogger’s to share our homes all decorate for this holiday season!

If you are coming from Happy Happy Nester thank you for stopping by!  Isn’t her tour beautiful!?  I love how cozy and inviting her decor is.   As much as I love decorating the inside of my house, I like decorating the outside even MORE!   Growing up, I loved driving around the neighborhood at night in December and seeing all the Christmas lights and decorations.  This time of year is so full of magic and I love creating that atmosphere at our house, which is why on this tour I’m sharing all the exterior of our home.

First I want to show you my farmer’s porch.  This is the entrance we use 99.9 percent of the time as we access this from our driveway.  So I love making it festive and inviting.   I hung an old window frame here that I layer seasonal decor over.  A plain window frame is the perfect back drop to a seasonal element.  This year instead of a wreath I found “merry” at A.C. Moore and painted it in a bright cheery red.


I decided to put this faux flocked tree from Walmart in the corner and I love it here.  These grain sack pillows from Target last year are the perfect farmhouse touch as well.   My kids love filling their Santa mailbox with their ever changing/growing Christmas List.  All these pieces I’ve linked below.

Whenever the weather gets cool, I almost always have a warm beverage in hand.  My Santa mug is my favorite!

I hope you liked my Farmer’s porch.  If you are looking for similar items shop them here.

 Now onto the front door!

Like I said before, I love seeing how every house expresses their love for the holidays.  Even if it is a simple wreath and white twinkle lights.   This year I felt like making a big statement on our front door, literally!  I don’t think Santa will miss our house.   The bright red letters in “We Believe” are the perfect addition this year.  I adopted a new motto for Christmas.  “In our house we believe in the magic of Christmas, because when you stop believing you get underpants.”   I saw this quote somewhere online and it made me giggle!  My kids are still little and I love that they believe in the magic and wonder of Christmas.  As they get older and question things, I think this will help keep their questions at bay.

My garland and wreath are from two years ago form Pottery Barn.   I get so many questions on the color of our door.  It it is St. Lucia Teal by Benjamin Moore.  My daughter decided to get in on the photo shoot fun and honestly it couldn’t have been more perfect.

I love lanterns and I use them all around my home all year round.  These over sized ornaments are fun to add to the scene as well.   This large bucket I found at T.J.Maxx, I was so excited as I was looking for something like this.  I’ll link some similar at the bottom.

There you have it my Home Exterior tour!  What would you think if you drove by?  I hope you enjoyed it and it inspired you to get decorating this holiday season.  I linked some similar items for you if you are interest.

Of course I had to share one with our pup Levi.
