Country Living Holiday Ideas

Well, I got the skinny tree trimmed, but not much else done. So I thought I'd head over to and get some inspiration for tomorrow. 

What a gorgeous display of transfer ware!

How about hanging stockings on the piano?

Ornaments made from pocket watches.

I really like this multi purpose room with Christmas touches. So cozy.

 A framed velvet wreath.

I think we're all enamored of mason jars right now!

Fun pretties hanging in the windows.

Hanging keys as ornaments.

Or pin cushions.

The nature-inspired look.

Joy in the window.

Candle bling.

Crafty birds in bird cages.

  1. I really like the idea of hanging stockings on the piano. Perfect for people who may not have a fireplace.

    Brenda, I emailed you to let you know that I've stopped receiving your blog updates via my email. Also, for some reason, all your past updates have been deleted from my in box. I don't know what's going on! Any idea at your end what might have happened? I'm going to resubscribe but I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this?

  2. Well, I just tried to resubscribe and it said I was already subscribed! Ugh :(

    I look forward to reading your daily posts so this is disappointing. If it's nothing at your end, I will subscribe with another email if need be.

  3. Sure am inspired! got my Country Living mag yesterday and have enjoyed it very much.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the pretties!!

  4. I love the little mason jars turned snow globe. I would love to buy some things to make those!

  5. O, I do love Country Living...these are all so great.
    Thanks for the inspiration....
    hugs, bj

  6. I'm really liking the beautiful reds and natural the keys and pin cushions as ornaments!! I love candles and decorations in mason jars!! Excellent post!! Hugs!

  7. Decorating for the holidays is a war with my kittens. They are winning!

  8. Wow - check out that wall paper in the room with white sofas and red accents. Holy Cow! I think I like it....I just don't want to ever, eve,r ever take wall paper down again in my life. Awesome ideas here.

  9. Glad to hear you got some decorating done Brenda. Great inspiration as well, I love the hanging keys and pincushions. Anything goes as Christmas decor and that's a good thing.

  10. Great inspiration, Brenda! Love using unusual items to decorate the tree or any area at Christmas time. Glad you got the lights on the tree!

  11. Love it, Brenda. I have saved a couple of those ideas too, for my files. I love that one of the transferware and saved it to my files about 3 weeks ago. Hope you have a great night- xo Diana

  12. Your decorating tops anything . The year you did the three trees...gorgeous! Someone should have called the Living editor of the local newspaper.

  13. Whatever you do will be adorable. You have such a gift. I can't wait to see what you've come up with.

  14. Those are all very inspiring, thanks!

  15. Lots of great inspiration you share. I did hang stockings from the piano this year. I imagine your skinny tree looks beautiful.
    Have fun!

  16. I empathize with you Maureen.. I've had to think about where I could put things so they wouldn't get broken, chewed or completely destroyed..
    Brenda, I know your home is going to look very cozy and Christmasy.. I think I'm just about finished. Just a few more candles, the battery type, my wreath on the door and candles in the windows.
    I hear that you're going to get some icy weather.. Be careful !

  17. Oh, maybe just a little bit! I love that framed velvet wreath. And the simplicity of using little clothespins to hang vintage cards and little pretties from a string of twine. I've been doing some more decorating today, but still tweaking here and there.

  18. Now, you know I am going to love the birds in the bird cages. Very cute idea! Some fun ideas from CL,
