Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Pretties

BHG always has beautiful and sensible decor for any home. I love their website. Above, a country/farmhouse look next to the wood stove.

This makes for a very elegant table with simple ribbon and pine cones from the yard dressing up the chairs.

Spice up your journal with some holiday decor made from felt.

This window of small trees and the tray of candles is almost ethereal in its beauty.

Round up the family photos and design a Christmas tree shape for your wall.

This has got to be my favorite. Aprons serving as curtains in the kitchen window.

Hope you got some last minute inspiration here.

See you tomorrow for Tweak It!

  3. These ideas are awesome! I love the felt book cover! The apron windows! That reminds me of your kitchen. The photo tree is an excellent idea. Love everything. Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Great ideas, Brenda! Those window aprons take the cake though. Hope you had a good day- I have been so busy that I have had trouble visiting blogs! xo Diana

  5. These are all gorgeous inspiration the photo tree!

  6. I love these, especially the country/farmhouse look. The wood stove brings back memories, we had one very similar in our previous home in the country. And, I really like the look of the trees and the tray of white candles.

  7. Always great ideas here. I love the tree in the entry and have always loved the tabletop tree. The aprons are adorable! Thanks for sharing, Brenda.

  8. I love the picture with the aprons as curtains.. The refrigerator looks like one my Mom had when I was a "kid".
    I still wish I had a window over my kitchen sink.. Maybe someday ?

    The kitchen with the aprons has your name written all over it.

  12. Hi Brenda, I agree with you about the BHG photographs - the style they highlight is fresh and colorful like your decorating. Just makes a person feel good inside! Thanks for sharing with us.

  13. Love the refrigerator and looking for one just like it. I hope they refurbish old stove/oven and refrig. Tired of new only lasting 5 years and having store act like that is the norm. Thank you for all the inspiration! Makes the day happier.

  17. The Aprons in the window are killing me but in the best way.

  20. Hi Brenda I can see you using aprons as curtains in your kitchen. Cute idea! I wonder how practical is a live tree beside a wood stove? Great ideas
