I am excited to team up with an amazingly talented group of bloggers for a Christmas blog hop hosted by Kendra from Joy in Our Home. Each day will showcase a different theme and today is all about vignettes. If you are visiting from Anderson + Grant, welcome!
The theme I chose for our holiday décor this year is ‘A Simple Farmhouse White Christmas’. We live a simple life here at the farmhouse and I want our Christmas décor to reflect our lifestyle and be understated, homemade, and nature inspired. You can find a lot of white chippy furniture pieces, white ironstone, dark wood, and greenery year round in our home and it is no different this holiday season.
I am sharing two farmhouse Christmas vignettes with you today. The first one is more of a wall vignette.
For the holidays, I added a pom pom garland, fresh greenery, pine cones, and a cast iron Santa I painted white last Christmas.
Our cat’s favorite sleeping spot…
I also like to incorporate more sentimental pieces to my vignettes, especially during the holidays. The little Christmas tree tucked in an antique coal bucket belonged to my late grandmother Annette. I decorated it very simply with a white felt garland I made last year. My grandmother was raised on a farm along the Saint Lawrence River and she told me countless wonderful stories of her upbringing in Saint-André-de-Kamouraska, Québec. She really inspired me to be on a quest to live a slower, simpler, and more sustainable life.
My grandmother’s farm…Next to my grandma’s tree is an antique door from the 1890’s that was salvaged from a camp on Lake Champlain. I hung my ice skates on the door with a throw and a pine cone garland. Above the door is a sign I made a few days ago. I cut a barn wood plank that was leftover from our plank table project, glued the pieces together, and used a stencil for the sign.
On the other side of our living room is a little area located between a door and a wall of windows. It is the perfect spot to add more Christmas cheer.
For this vignette, I filled an ironstone pitcher with branches and hung little star ornaments I made with baking soda and cornstarch.
Here is a little video on how to make these simple Christmas ornaments.
Next to the pitcher is a vintage spice cabinet I painted white a few months ago. I filled the drawers with farmhouse goodies and some greenery.
I also wrapped a little gift with Kraft paper and put a pair of antique scissors that belonged to my late father-in-law Marcial next to it. He was a bonsai master and an amazing artist.
Here is one of his work from 1955…
Vignettes are the perfect place to display special objects from greatly missed family members and a good way to share their stories with future generations.
Thank you so much for stopping by and make sure to visit My Creative Days for more vignette inspiration!
