Hello, sweet friends. Welcome to Part 2 of our Christmas at the Farmhouse Home Tour! If you haven’t seen Part 1 of the tour yet, be sure to click here when you’re done!
Decorating our home for the holidays was such a treat this year, as our little farmhouse has seen A LOT of changes since last Christmas! Normally, I stick to whites and metallics for my holiday decor, but now that the living room walls are all white (which I love!!), I felt the urge to add a little bit of classic red and green into the mix this year. It’s kind of shocking, I know… this neutral-loving gal added some color!
Before we get started on the tour, I wanted to share a little bit of my heart with you first. As I said, we’ve made so much progress with redecorating our home over the last year, but as I sat down to edit these photos, I still saw so many things that I wish were different. Projects we haven’t had time to tackle yet… things I want to buy that are out of my price range… I’ve seen so many beautiful photos in my Instagram feed lately of my friends’ homes that I start to feel inadequate and self-conscious. But what I’ve realized is that our home is an ever-evolving story, and even when things feel unfinished, I need to embrace that transition and enjoy our home in the moment. Some day, I will look back on all these years of photos and realize just how far we’ve come… all the cans of paint… all the trim we’ve installed… all the hours spent decorating and re-decorating and re-decorating yet again.
I love our little farmhouse, and I love the people I share it with even more. So as you get ready for the holidays this year, please remember to embrace and enjoy this moment…
even if you wish you had a different house…
or you had more money to decorate and buy gifts…
or you still had beloved family members here to celebrate the holidays with you…
Enjoy this moment and celebrate it!
And now without further adieu…
Christmas at the Farmhouse!

First of all your home is gorgeous!! And I can completely related to how you feel. I had those exact same feelings when I was editing our pictures. I want so many different things, and to do so many more things, but either time or money slows me down. I’m trying to do what I teach my children and be grateful for the journey. Even if I never get there I want to live passionately and with a purpose! Have a Merry Christmas Liz!!
Amen, sister. Merry Christmas to you too, Ashley!!
Beautiful decorations and I like that you kept it rustic. I don’t know how many farmhouses I’ve seen where they have renovated and made everything modern looking. I love the simplicity of your decor and that use used greens. That little sleigh on your table is wonderful. Love your blog and thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much, Denise! That means a lot to me!
Liz, Just read your blog and viewed your beautiful photos. Your home is so lovely, warm and inviting, and one thing I love is your creativity and vision to transform everyday simple things into such beauty. Sometimes “more” is not better! So many of us can relate to your Walmart tables, and your Ikea curtains! Your ideas and design are inspirational for those of us who are also on a budget, who see value in simple things, and who make a conscious decisions to reuse and recycle…and are proud to tell people so! 🙂
Such a beautiful Christmas-y home! I love that you have touches of Christmas everywhere without it looking at all cluttered!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with all of us. I love it. You are so inspiring. Merry Christmas to you and yours .
Merry Christmas to you too, sweet friend! 🙂
There’s so much truth in your words that you ‘ll embrace and enjoy the moment but in the daily routine you forget it very often.. Especially when you like to have everything done for a perfect x mas season but in fact many projects will be still undone for whatever reasons..
Your x mas deco fits perfectly into your living and dining areas and gives the rooms the coloured – green – eye catcher!
Everything looks beautiful!
Isn’t it strange how we don’t appreciate the home that we have and are always wishing for what someone else has? You may be interested to know that having looked at all the GORGEOUS pictures of your home, I too am experiencing home envy, sometimes it helps to see what you have through someone else’s eyes.
Wishing you a fabulous Christmas and Happy, Healthy and Contented New Year.

Thank you so much for your sweet words, Judi. Merry Christmas, friend! 🙂
Your home is just beautiful!! Love the soft greys and whites along with the other colors!! Merry Christmas!!
I hear you my dear. I live in an old modular house, seam down the middle, paneling everywhere. I was forced to retire early from nursing so no huge changes in my future but everyday I look at my beautiful 4 acres with a pond and a stream and I smile. When I have money I change something, when I don’t I rearrange it. Your house is lovely btw.
Thank you so very much, friend! 🙂
It looks absolutely beautiful Liz. I hope you don’t feel inadequate, because you and a handful of others I can relate to. My house is not small, but it’s not overly large either. Although I love looking at all the beautiful homes out there on IG etc. I couldn’t afford to live in most of those homes let alone buy all that décor all the time. I appreciate the things you
do ! It always looks spectacular and not so overly priced that a normal working person couldn’t afford to do it. Thanks for being real !
What you said means the world to me, Marijean. I love being able to share our DIY on a budget ideas because that’s all we are able to afford in our home, and I hope there are plenty of people I reach that are in the same boat too! Have a very Merry Christmas, sweet friend. Thank you for following along on our journey!
Liz your home is beautiful.
I love it, elegant, creative, and festive.
Absolutely lovely holiday tour! You have created a home that has such a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere with such creative ideas. I have been slowly trying to transition my decor more into farmhouse style, but changing & removing all of the paint, wallpapers and accessories (reds,yellows etc.) of tuscan style(what was I thinking, I live in a white colonial!) has been quite the task! I only hope that when all is done, my home has the same comfy cozy vibe that yours does.
I grew up in a farm house that was over 200 years old. Yours is a precious welcoming place and everything that you have done to it just makes more adorable.
Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Reading this sweet and honest blog, came with Spotify Phil Thompson Christmas Piano, delicious mug of coffee, Christmas lights on and a bit of snow this morning! I love your home and your simple decorating. Your home looks like a good life; warm, lovely, spirited and enough space in between to grow imagination. You are a lovely inspiration, my dear. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone.
Merry Christmas to you, Susan! Thank you so much for stopping by our home tour. 🙂
You have a beautiful home, and a beautiful heart. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
I would buy STORAGE! Living in a small home means I need to be creative with storage.
Liz, your home is so beautiful. Can I at 81 years just tell you that the most important thing is to make memories. Growing up in a small farming community where we were about as well off as anyone else there, I have such wonderful memories. Our stockings usually consisted of an orange, Apple, banana, chocolate drops and raisins. Our tree was decorated with silver tinsel saved from year to year, paper chains and popcorn chains. Yes, we got a nice present from Santa, usually something we had asked for. Once I got 6 paper doll books. I still have one of those paper dolls. We would get up at 4 or 4:30 am to see what Santa left. I could tell you more wonderful memories but l have invaded your space too much so please forgive me. I really don’t think it is the abundance of things that make us happy. There will always be someone who has more BUT there will always be some who hav much less than we do. I love your house, love your decor and your sweet spirit. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
