White Christmas


White Christmas Junk Chic Cottage

Old Chippy Gate with wreath

Entry Way Christmas flower basket




I added the angel wings to the old chippy window in the living room
















I like to mix my chippy pieces with the natural Christmas greens.  The little Christmas tree in the old butter bucket on the chippy chair.
Front Room decorated for Chippy White Christmas.

Each armoire door has a chippy sconce with Christmas greens and my vintage cherubs.






Corner of living room with Chippy post and christmas greens.
Front Room Chippy Window with Christmas Decor.






Old vintage window up close with Joy sign and hearts cut out with old metal salvage and chandelier crystals







I added my new angel my husband got me this year for Christmas.  Cathy from Cheswick Company on Etsy makes the beautiful Angel I got last year and this is the newest addition.  She is one of a kind and hand made.  Cathy uses vintage christening gowns and this pretty little vintage sweater.  I just love her angels.  You can see the angel Grace I got from Cathy last year on the bench in the front entry picture above.


It is always so hard to get a good picture in a big window like this without an expensive camera and lens.  This angel is so sweet and looks so pretty in my snow wreath.







Old white chippy sled with vintage skates.





My little cherub arrangement I got in a shop in Geneva.  I added some of the glitter roses and believe sign to the arrangement.

The mantel looks pretty at night with the Luminary candles that flicker and glow like a real candle.  I love these candles they have a timer and they look and smell like real candles burning.




Finally my Christmas Tree.

I did a vintage garden theme with my tree this year.  Old wash tub to hold the tree.  My birdhouse was decorated with a Christmas garden theme.  I kept that theme going on my french doors that separate my office from the dining room by adding these nests and greenery.


Here is a side view of my tree with the french doors.

I love this old martin birdhouse I have had for a long time.  Got this at an estate sale years ago and the hubby mounted it on an old porch post for me.


Here is my tree lite up.  It is hard to get a good picture with all the lights but it really is pretty lite at night.  My favorite Christmas decor is my tree at night.


Here are some up close shots of the tree to give a better idea of how pretty this tree is lite up.

My tree consists of mostly angel ornaments I have collected through the years.  All white and crystal.




Here is a shot of the bottom of the tree so you can see the old wash bucket I painted white to put the tree in this year.
I love the chandelier ornaments that hang in this tree.  Give a pretty bling to my angel tree.

There you have it Junk Chic Cottage done up this year for Christmas.  I cut back on my decor this year and wanted to keep it simple and just touches of chippy, shabby Christmas throughout my house.  
Now onto baking, wrapping presents and doing random acts of kindness to help celebrate what this season is about.

Hope your decorating is going great and you are having fun getting the house decorated for the season. 
Merry Christmas.

But then again, so is everything else. You make me want to chuck everything out and start over again. The white is perfect with the touches of green and all of the crystal. I love it all Kris!

    1. Ha Ha Julie we have had that tree for years and this year we had to restring all the lights since the old ones just gave out. So I went a little overboard with stringing on new lights. I think there are about 6 strings of 300 lights each. I like it bright and pretty!!!!

  4. Hi my friend, I wanted to link up before hitting the hay. lol! Everything is just stunning! You have such a knack and do white wonderfully. I love the little pops of grey and your tree is GORGEOUS! So happy to have you join in the party and I loved chatting with you. Even if it was short and sweet.

  7. Kris I can't even express how fabulous I think your holiday home looks! How soothing and refreshing to see all white. Of course my favorite is the garden gate with the wreath. Mine is mounted on our patio wall so I better get out there and jazz it up! Thanks for sharing all your creative ideas with us! You're incredible Kris!

    Blessings, Edie Marie

  14. Kris, there is nothing prettier than the Nordic whites and the fresh greens combined. Love everything you did....especially that sweet tree. I didn't know you were having a party so I really really appreciated the invite. Busyness has gotten in the way of my blogging. :) I can't wait to see your charming home some day. xoxo

  15. Oh-Kris- i wasn't going to visit blogs today because I have so much to do-but I had to see your White Christmas. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

Beautiful! I HAVE to go see your girlfriend party post, too! shhhhh-I am NOT here-xo Diana

  16. Hi Kris

    As always, I'm loving everything you've done to prepare your home for Christmas, but the one thing that has totally grabbed me are those gorgeous cushions (pillows) wrapped with the silver grey ribbons, they are just BEAUTIFUL! Got my tree up over the weekend, it's an artificial one, BUT a very NICE one, and having treated myself to a few new ornaments, and made a few too, I'm thrilled with the way it looks, but my favourite piece is the fairy on the top, which is the one we had when I was a child, 50 odd years ago! She looks a bit dog eared, but the memories mean the world.

    Hugs

  20. Dear Sweet Kris, Your place is completely amazing. I absolutely love everything. You are THE DECORATING QUEEN!
    Those timed candles, I bought some this summer and used them outdoors. Now I have them in the house and they are fabulous in here, too. Love that they have a remote control and a timer. They look so real that I got rid of all the burning ones. I was always too afraid of fire to light them anyway.

  43. Oh, Kris!! I was so excited to see your home all festive for Christmas and you did not disappoint! How pretty everything looks. You were able to keep so much of your own decor and just add some magical touches here and there. I really love your darling tree and the galvanized white container it's in...just beautiful!

    I just caught up on some of your posts, I have been swimming against the tide these past few weeks and really owed you a visit. Loved the party you had with all of your friends, the PJ idea was fantastic and the food really was great. And the fact that it was all for charity is really something.

    I'm not sure how your linky party works. Just join in with your Christmas post when you are ready? Great idea. Let me know, and Happy Holidays, my friend! :)

    XO,
    Jane
