A Touch of Farmhouse Charm 1st Anniversary

One year ago today, I officially became a published author. My book that I worked on night and day for the better part of a year was released into the world, and A Touch of Farmhouse Charm started to arrive in bookstores and on doorsteps all over the country. My fears of meeting book deadlines and getting the photography just right and creating something that people would relate to and use as a resource over and over again… all those fears started to melt away as the excitement and anticipation of the book launch became a reality. I still had plenty of worries… would people like the book and think it was creative and original? When you pour your heart and soul into something as personal as a blog or a book, it can be absolutely terrifying and thrilling all at the same time, but when I started seeing photos of your books being delivered and the projects you made and just how excited you all were right along with me, I knew all the hard work I put into this beautiful book baby of mine was worth it!

Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room

This post is sponsored by our friends at HomeGoods // Hi, sweet friends! Welcome back to our Farmhouse Holiday Series! Last week I shared the first look at our little farmhouse all decorated for Christmas in our master bedroom, and today I’m continuing on into our dining room with a fun, festive table setting I put together this week. My goal this year is to share easy ideas with you for simplifying the hustle and bustle of the holidays and creating a cozy, inviting home that is the perfect backdrop to create beautiful holiday memories with your loved ones. I truly hope that you enjoy this decorating series as much as I do and get some great ideas for your home!

So this look in our dining room is a little more over the top than I normally do. You guys know me… I’m a less-is-more kind of girl when it comes to decorating the farmhouse, but I couldn’t resist playing with a more whimsical look for the holidays this year, especially once I found some really sweet nutcrackers and these beautiful, little trees while I was out shopping at HomeGoods this past week. If there’s one time of year that you can get away with a big, oversized table setting like this, it’s during the holidays!

And lucky for you guys, I happen to have a $100 HomeGoods gift card that I’m giving away just in time to start your holiday shopping!
