So many changes have been made to our little farmhouse since last Christmas, and it’s been both a challenge and a joy to have a new, fresh space to decorate this year for the holidays. One of my favorite little areas in our home is the entryway, complete with an antique armoire and mirror, coat hooks and a sweet, little bench, and the front door of my dreams. I recently partnered with Gordmans to create a festive, yet simple entryway for the holidays, and I am so excited to show you how this space turned out!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the farmhouse. Won’t you join me on a tour of our living room?
Good morning, sweet friends! The current state of the farmhouse is pretty chaotic as I’m slowly transitioning our fall decor into the holidays, so I wanted to share something really exciting with you today. Have you ever wished there was a handbook that perfectly mapped out how to decorate your home? One that could tell you how to find the right style for your home and family? And where to start and how to stop wasting money on the wrong things?
The Cozy & Beautiful Handbook was created by my dear friend, Shannon Acheson, and after reading through it the past couple weeks, I think this handbook is exactly what we’ve all been searching for.
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!

Even though it is only the day after Halloween, and I still have pumpkins sitting on my front porch, we are going to start November with some decorating for the holidays! Now before you think I’m totally crazy for busting out a Christmas tree this early, hear me out. I have a TON of ideas for what I want to do with our little farmhouse for the holidays, and I want to have them all up on the blog before it’s time for you to start YOUR holiday decorating. That means I have to start a little early this year!
This fall, I had the great privilege of joining some fellow bloggers in a series we like to call our “Farmhouse Holiday Series”, and starting today we are continuing on and shifting our focus from fall to winter. Our goal is to share easy ideas 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!

I cannot get enough of this beautiful fall we’re having. The leaves are finally starting to turn here, and the weather has been nothing short of beautiful. Most days are still warm and sunny, but we’ve had just enough chilly, rainy days too that make you want to throw on a cozy sweater and sip on a mug of hot chocolate. And I’ve needed a reason to finally wear my collection of cute boots that I seem to keep adding to throughout the year… : ) I truly love this season!
I’ve shared quite a few different spaces from our little farmhouse dressed up for fall over the last month or so… from our country kitchen, to the cozy living room, to a simple fall table setting, to our master bedroom retreat, to our festive front porch…
… and now I get to share probably my favorite space of all with you… our patio! After giving this tiny concrete slab in our backyard a big makeover this summer, I couldn’t let this season go by without adding a touch of fall to our sweet, little patio. This has been the perfect place to sit outside during the day, looking at the gorgeous colors on the trees and feeling the warm sunshine on my face, and my favorite spot to sit under the stars at night with candles lit and a cozy blanket wrapped around me.
Sponsored by At Home // Our entryway is probably one of the hardest working areas of our home, next to the kitchen. Right now it’s full of jackets in every shape and size and muddy boots coming in from the field and ball caps from sports practices and a million other miscellaneous items that don’t belong here, but the entryway seems to be the perfect place to drop everything when we walk in the door. So this week I took some time to clean things up a bit and add a few new pieces to the entryway to help keep things organized and of course, looking pretty. This IS the first space I see when I come home to our little farmhouse… I want it to make me smile!
