Vintage Farmhouse Christmas

Hi y'all! It's about time I share my dining room.
It has a mix of white and rustic elements.
And did you know that this once was a tiny bedroom?
We knocked the wall down that was between it and the kitchen.
Ahhh...much better now.

And as I've stated many times before...almost all my decor is from pickin' adventures.
Some say I'm frugal. No folks, I'm cheap and proud of it!
Even though I'm cheap, my decor does not have to look like that way.
It just gives me the opportunity to be creative. 
It makes me stretch my imagination and have fun with my farmhouse look.

To make the dining room festive for the holidays, 
I added a few vintage blue Christmas ornaments to my collection of white dishes. 

And a few white snowflakes. I did buy them from the dollar store.
I added them to dogwood branches that I spray painted white this past spring.

The rustic shelf is from barn wood that we salvaged from my sister's barn.

Love the texture of rustic wood and natural elements.

A child's sweet pair of mittens from long ago.

Here's Kate sporting a fake fur collar added to her vintage outfit.
A lady needs to stay warm and comfortable.

And a little snowman at her feet to keep her company.

A favorite vintage wire basket holding an old chenille bedspread. 

Hope you enjoyed my vintage farmhouse Christmas in my dining room.

Love it Cindy! You have an amazing collection of whites. I think you should link this with Tracies Natural Christmas decor. I think you have enough natural elements for it to fit perfectly.
