Happy Holidays!
If you're coming over from Eclectically Vintage, then Welcome!!  How adorable was her front porch?!  I love, love, loved it!  If you're new to this home tour, be sure to check out the full list of homes below.  For me, this holiday season decor was all about simple.  Pick a color palette you love and incorporate it in simple, thoughtful ways throughout the house.
The Buffalo Check Tablecloth is simply fabric from Ikea!
The deer silhouette was painted with white paint on black foam core.  And the Chalkboard Menu, on the left, is a keepsake from our Wedding Reception.
To see how we made our easy, simple Rosemary Letter Wreath, click here!

Our Advent Calendar is by Wheel & Basket!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head over to the next stop on the tour, at Our Humble Abode ~ it's super Merry & Bright!

  19. May I ask where you found the frame that holds the reindeer silhouette? I am in LOVE with it! You have a beautiful home. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi, Sara! I LOVE that frame too :) It's actually made from old tin ceiling tiles. This one was purchased a couple years ago at the Country Living Fair in Atlanta. But I'm seeing these everywhere lately, mainly at antique fairs. Not sure where you live, but there's a vendor every month at Scott's Antique Market here in Atlanta, that sells these (his are beautiful!!!) I've asked him repeatedly for his contact info, he's from PA, doesn't have a website and only sells at antique fairs. If you're near Atlanta, his booth is always outside at the South building, first row, closest to the building. I hope this helps a little, I've also seen these selling on ebay and etsy. I'm wanting a huge one to turn into a mirror, but space in our small home is always an issue ;)

    2. Thank you very much for the information. I checked eBay and etsy but none are as beautiful as yours. I'm very jealous! ;)

  20. Michelle,
    I love your holiday look! So fresh and innovative . . . you really inspire me. Keep it coming - I can hardly wait to see what you come up with next!

  21. Love your home, Michelle! Your Christmas decorations are so clean and fresh, beautiful job! Adding you to my reader now :)

  22. Just stunning! So glad to be on this tour with you ;) Sharing on my FB page tomorrow ;)

  23. I just love the JOY sign. I also loved how simple and fresh everything is:)

  24. So, pretty much I am in love with your entire house! I need a source list for everything! :P But specifically I am curious as to where you got the wicker bottle holders and the gold polka dot plates? Did you make? So cute!!!

    1. hello.hello! The Wicker bottle holders are vintage Demijohns ~ you can read a bit more about them here: And the gold polka dot plates are part of our wedding china ~ technically they're silver, our lighting makes them look gold ~ Kate Spade Larabee Dot Accent Plate here:,en_US,pd.html?dwvar_6255574_color=040&dwvar_6255574_size=UNS Still working on an overall source list, in the meantime, hope this helps!
