Have you been dreaming of a Cottage Christmas? Well if you love warm whites….crisp reds…gingerbread people…vintage linen bows…vintage skies …doggies in plaid…boxwood wreaths and tiny little flocked deer I do believe your answer is yes. Take a moment to make yourself something yummy to drink…I am highly recommending your favorite blend of hot chocolate and relax for a few moments in time and enjoy A Cottage Christmas. I guarantee you will take a deep sigh at the end and have pleasant thoughts all day long. May the perfect crystal snowflake bless the tip of your nose today : )
Tis the Season for warm comfy blankets and precious Charlie Brown Christmas Trees all decked out in red.
Is that Santa winking at me? Is he telling me that my hot chocolate is ready : )
Ah…what would the holiday’s be without precious little gingerbread men!
Snowmen in shabby…chippy vintage soda crates looking totally adorable.
A galvanized bucket holding the sweetest tree!
Oh and what says Holidays like a colander filled with holly and a candle.
Simple everyday things become extra special by just tying a festive bow around them…oh so sweet.
The cupboard is filled with vintage red and white dishes and with any luck…
one of those dishes will have some scrumptious plum pudding on it after dinner!
Trees made from apples and tiny little deer making everyone that passes them smile.
Hearts are a flutter when you gaze upon a vintage vignette of antique skis and evergreen.
Touches of linen and boxwood…(deep sigh)
How sweet are the tins of plaid with a tiny little woodland scene.

Wooden bowls filled with pine cones and apples with touches of vintage throughout the vignette.
Nature’s bounty at it’s finest.
Trees laden with beautiful ornaments and stacks of presents that make those little eyes glisten on Christmas Morning!
Tiny little touches of Winter love can be found in places you would never have thought of.
Oh I wonder what is happening in this kitchen…I think there is something yummy in the oven. The Tree could not be sweeter…it is covered in sweet gumdrops and cranberries and life is good.
Seeing those flea market treasures all decked for the Holidays will make everyone’s heart happy.
How is it that something so simple can be so so beautiful…this sweet berry wreath is cottage perfection.
Homemade marshmallows and spice hot chocolate will bring the family running into the kitchen for sure.
Maybe if we are lucky some freshly baked stolen will be accompanying that delicious hot brew!
How gorgeous are these freshly picked pine cones…a reminder of natures beauty.
A Cottage Christmas is all things good wrapped up together…it is all about family and friends. It gives you the feeling as though your are wrapped up in the softest of blankets…surrounded by all things that are good in life. It truly gives you the feeling of joy and happiness…only one thing is better than all of the above…what you ask? A cute doggie in Christmas plaid ; ) Have yourselves a Merry Cottage Christmas and may all your days be this precious…
