Finding Farmhouse Christmas Decor & Styling Tips

I love decorating for Christmas. Some people have an aversion to Christmas decorations going up before Halloween, but if I’m going to spend hours decorating, I want to have time to enjoy them. We made a few significant improvements to our downstairs living area since last Christmas, one of which is our lovely double barn doors. I didn’t want to take away from my large and beautiful Christmas tree, but I really wanted to highlight the doors. I needed to pick up a few more Farmhouse Christmas Decor pieces but since I really want to install the shiplap around the fireplace before Christmas, I was on a tight budget. I have one big suggestion on where to find Farmhouse Christmas Decor for Less; have you been to Big Lots recently? They have a large selection of farmhouse style Christmas decor in a variety of color palettes. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite Farmhouse Christmas Decor pieces and tips for styling your farmhouse for the holidays.

Free Woodland Animal Printables & Nursery Prep

My son will be 7 in January, and I’m having a hard time remembering what it was like preparing for a baby or having a newborn; maybe that’s a good thing? I remember reading reviews on everything and trying to save as much money as possible to help compensate for my expected time off work. Not all baby products are made equal, and you shouldn’t have to choose between affordability and quality when trying to save money. Today I’m going to help you save on nursery decor, so that you’ll have more money to stock up on necessities that you’ll really need. These Woodland Animal Printables can add a nice (and gender neutral) touch to any nursery decor. I’m still toying with the idea of letting our baby be a surprise in the delivery room, and decor that could be gender neutral would make that a little less stressful. I used popular elements such as owls, foxes, bears, and deer to create the printable art. They print very nicely on 8×10 or standard size card stock (that can be cut down to fit an 8×10 frame).

Farmhouse Style Wooden Bathroom Sign Tutorial

One of the last rooms to be decorated in our newly built home is our bathrooms. We purchased nice vanities and fixtures, but I’ve struggled with accessorizing the room. I didn’t want to invest a lot of money in a room that we only use a few minutes a day, but I wanted it to reflect the style throughout the rest of our home. I found an inexpensive solution for an otherwise boring bathroom by creating this farmhouse style wooden bathroom sign. It cost less than $15 to create and adds a bit of whimsy. There’s nothing overly complicated about this Wooden Bathroom Sign and there are no power tools required if you have a home improvement store cut the wood for you.

Diy farmhouse sign

DIY Farmhouse Sign & Cricut Supply Giveaway

Farmhouse style decor is one of the hottest trends in home decorating at the moment. We live in a farmhouse on a farm, so it kinda makes sense for us. I also have a growing collection of family heirlooms and antiques, that fit in with that style. I’ve been adding farmhouse style signs to our house one at a time. This is my first farmhouse style sign tutorial, and I’ll be adding the others that I’ve designed and made in the next few weeks. This DIY Farmhouse Sign just requires a few supplies and less than an hour to finish. I’ve also partnered with several other Cricut bloggers to feature some of our projects, and to give away a box of Cricut supplies. The complete details are at the bottom of this post.

Fall Cooking Essentials: Friday Fresh Picks

This week I’m joining a few blogging friends in a series entitled, Friday Fresh Picks. You might recognize Sarah from Finnegan and the Hughes; she has been a guest blogger on here and we’ve been friends for a little over 3 years. She partnered up with a few other Jersey girls to create this Friday Fresh Picks series several months ago, and they invited me to permanently join in the fun. Friday Fresh Picks is a curated collection of blogger weekly favorites. Our theme this week is fall, and I decide to round-up a few of my favorite Fall Cooking Essentials. Before I show you my first Friday Fresh Picks, I need to properly introduce the rest of the ladies in the group. Hilary is from A Fancy Girl Must, which is a resource for all things fabulous and girly. Shelia is from Pieces of a Mom, and she has lots of great posts about beauty, home, and style. Tina is from Life Without Pink, which is a lifestyle site dedicated to raising her boys. I hope you’ll take a few minutes, and get to know the other ladies. Without further ado, here is my first edition of Friday Fresh Picks: Fall Cooking Essentials.

Monogram duvet tutorial

Monogrammed Duvet Tutorial Using Cricut Explore

This Monogrammed Duvet Tutorial may include affiliate links.

In a previous post, I discussed my love of monograms. I adore personalization in a home, and monogram bedding adds a nice touch. Customized bedding is very expensive, and I consider myself too frugal to pay the hitch prices. I have just under $50 in materials for the duvet and matching pillow shams. This Monogrammed Duvet Tutorial is very easy. You’ll just need a Cricut Explore, Duvet Set, Fabric, bonding agent, Design Space installed on your computer or other device, embroidery thread, embroidery needle, and basic embroidery skills.
