{ Chippy Cottage Christmas Garden Decor }

 Happy Friday!! I have to preface this post by saying it's going to very upbeat & bubbly, Christmas  inspiration filled,so if you're not ready for the positivity then this probably isn't the post for you today....BUT who doesn't love those thing's?! A few days ago I mentioned on my Instagram stories my mom & I were out on a snowy Sunday in a snow globe blizzard decorating this space! It's the most magical little chippy cottage Christmas in my front garden!! Tons of fresh & vintage finds & some special goods. Come see this whimsical space below.....


 

How magical & whimsical is this mini fresh Fraser Fir from our cottage up north?! My dad snipped it down for me off the property & this is where this whole creative space inspiration came together!!

 

This forest green sign is from Target from the Dollars section! It's perfect for outside under the overhang on the front gardens! Simple, classic & large.

 

I love this chippy white bench! It was my grandma's antique & I'll never part with it! Some simple slices of wood, fresh cypress, , holly  & a vintage sleigh decorate this comfy look!! The solar Christmas lights were the best decision & add that effortless glow within the picture window. 


 

This creative Christmas look was in large part to my mom! She brought the tree down, beaded & brought the finishing touches for this look! I love how magical & Christmasy it is!




Life has been so refreshing lately...kind of like this quaint chippy corner outside! Small dreams do come true, and it feels amazing! Best advice: keep going & take the help! 




I had so much fun spending quality time with my mom doing this! Afterall, it is where I get my love of decor, design & Christmas!! 


HAPPY Friday!

{ Christmas & Winter Centerpiece Idea }

 Happy December 1st!! I can't believe it's already December...My two favorite months seem to just fly by these last few years or actually the whole year itself! I was thinking last week about something I've neglected here on TQS & that's sharing home decor ideas for nearly any home & a " How To". Well, after I simplified our dining room centerpiece I realized it was time to blog this for you all. This isn't only an easy centerpiece but affordable & can be used after Christmas as winter decor!! Come see more below....


 

How beautiful & simple is this huge tan crock filled with pinecones & " snowballs". Granted my snowballs here are chunky white candles ha!

 

•HOW TO:

Grab a crock,  galvanized bucket, anything to pile a bunch of pinecones in! I used a towel in the bottom of the crock to fill it easier! You can grab pinecones from any thrift/ craft store or gather them from outside { bake in oven to be sure nothings on them }. Add some faux snowballs { or white candles} & voila!!

 

I added a pinecone & some inexpensive cinnamon sticks as plate decor in $1 ramekins for an added layer!


 

The simplicity is the most beautiful part in my humble opinion! I love that anyone could replicate this look inexpensively, fast, effortlessly AND can doubleas winter decor after Christmas!


Have you used pinecones in your winter or Christmas decor? I hope you'll try this look in your home this season!


HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

{ Dining Room Christmas Tree }

 Happy late Monday pals!! Wow, I can't believe Thanksgiving is here already...like I really can't this year! Fastest, hardest year thus far in my 34 years! With that being said, I apologize for being a tad behind in the number of Christmas inspiration posts going out!! Today is a day I AM sharing & I'm so excited about that! One thing I always loved ever since a kid was a dining room that had a fireplace & or a Christmas tree in it! Well, no fireplace yet but definitely a Christmas tree. Come see this comfy textured Christmas nook below.....


 

With the exception of the amazing unique ornaments, from a gift shop everything was house shopped!! I wanted a muted, but bold textured look.. lot's of baskets & vintage pottery mixed in!

 

The wood ornaments are more modern cottage but the huge bubble square glass ornaments are from a gift shop via my mom♡!

 

I'm still not sure what I'm doing as a centerpiece/ focal point but for now some snowball candles, chunky candlesticks & neutral linens.


 

I added tons of decor textured items, basket for the tree, hanging storage baskets, vintage hamper etc..

 

It's quite magical in here...


I hope you gathered some inspiration from this Christmas cottage dining nook!! Something about a tree always adds magic to a space!

{ Cute Quaint Christmas Porch }

 Today was supposed to be a work day...Unfortunately I knew a few days ago I was heading for a fibromyalgia flare up...Not fun & very debilitating.  I did decide to get some blog work done while nestled in my pjs sipping camomile tea! I shot these a few days ago while enjoying the fresh winter air...Come see my 2021 holiday porch below!


 

I went super simple out here...well simple in Paige's world ha! Little cozy porch decor for a little snowy cottage! The snow finally melted here & things were dry & ready to be styled...I only lasted 25 minutes out there in the winds though! 


 

This space was inspired by the few new goods I picked out at Target a couple weeks back!! The mini Christmas cottage homes, sign & throw! Everything else was from a former photoshoot!


I will never tire of Christmas or winter decor! I also love the vintage white picket fence we installed this summer peeking from the garage!!


 

I hope you guys liked this little snowy cottage porch!! It's one of  my most favorite areas to bring inspiration too & hopefully this gave you some ideas!


HAPPY Tuesday!

{ Neutral Christmas Dining Elements }

 I'm sitting here watching Christmas movies, cinnamon candle going & Christmas lights sparkling....Today was the first snowfall here in Michigan, so I had to photograph some Christmas elements in the dining room for you { since I couldn't work outside}! This space wasn't fully decorated, staged, cleaned or photographed today, but this year is all about imperfect spaces!!! Come see some bold neutral sneak peeks below....


 

This is just a quick look book, but I couldn't help but share...Why? Because it's so simple, yet so comfy & magical!!


These ornaments were a going inspiration for this space!! My mom picked me up 8 of them & they gave this tree some bold neutral jazz!!! Glass & huge & look vintage....yes please!! 

 

Some of the main Christmas elements added to this space thus far would be the snowball candles, Christmas pillow, flocked tree & wreath!! See, not that much to bring this space together...I'll be back soon to show more details & a full post!!

 

I still need some winter greens & a few items here but for now a simple mini flocked tree in the window!


Do you decorate your dining room with a Christmas tree? I love the whimsical lights after a long day...Stay tuned for the full post soon!!


HAPPY Monday!

{ Historic Vintage Christmas Sitting Room }

 Ahhhh my most favorite time of the year!! November & December are indeed my favorite, even if they are the most chaotic too  usually  ha! I finally was able to finish our 2021 Christmas decor { for the most part }. I tried something new this year... I stepped entirely out of my comfort zone & used lots of vintage inspired colors, warmth & TONS of brass goods!! I have to be honest, I had no idea going into this year's holiday season what I was going to do throughout the house. Typically I do neutral in the living room & colorful in the family room. This year I had zero ideas..BUT it's definitely my most favorite in the almost 10 years I've been blogging I promise! Come see the year's upstairs sitting room below.....


 

I can't tell you how warm & almost enchanting this upstairs sitting room is this season! It's warm like a great big hug & so magical!! Lots of brass, vintage chipped blue, flocked, vintage ticking stripe , greys & aged reds! 

  
 

I love history & wanted to recreate a vintage tree with lots of warm character! The gold & teal mercury bulbs, wood & white glowing lights finish this tree!! The cabinet I wanted to be super warm & filled with textured antique goods! Baskets, antique wood pipes, lanterns & a tin joy sign!

 

The pillows coordinated well with the tree bulbs & pops of reds add that holiday ambiance with classic red bows! 

 

These vintage burlap & cotton sock  stockings add that touch of antique, whimsical & historic look! For Stewart, Swartz & Sugar { our three rescues }.  

 


 

The chalkboards were previously here, 
I just took & brushed the frame borders with brass paint!! 

 

Mixed in lots of beads, bells & old vintage/ historic elements for layers of coziness!!!

 

I've loved this chocolate tin for years, my gram finally gifted it & I just added some extra bulbs from the tree & beads to the brass candlesticks & wicker tray!

 

The vintage houses from the pillow below were the big inspiration!! So these woods houses were a must on the mantel!!

 

 

I hope you were inspired in any way possible by this oh so warm & comfy Christmas sitting room! 

HAPPY Tuesday!

{ First Glimpse at Christmas }

 NOVEMBERRR! You guys know what that means...CHRISTMAS EVERYTHING! I live for the holidays & once November/ December hit I'm Mrs Clause haha! I went simple,⁷ but with a look I haven't showcased here on the blog ever, at least not that I know of in 9 years! Anyways  come see a comfy homey upstairs decorated partially for Christmas!! More to come......

 

 

I wanted to go very old time vintage with a retro flare with lots of brass, color & a touch of mercury glass blue... The pillow was the main inspiration!! Old- time snowy Breckenridge country town!


 

Vintage brass chalkboards, antique inspired sign, lots of beads & chipped classic ornaments & it's cozy white fireplace perfection!! The black table has the same wood & stain as the coffee table { that I've never shared yet }!! Both pieces are over 50 years old & from Canada!! 


I hope you loved this sneak peek a this year's  2021 Christmas home! What theme are you implementing in your home this year?

HAPPY Wednesday!
