Today is going to be a really fun day here on my blog. After searching through my blog archives, I found 7+ Shabby Chic Decoupage Projects. Each is unique and not thought of as a decoupage craft.
It’s that time of year when we are purging, organizing and redecorating our homes. There is a simple solution that helps organize and creates a lovely atmosphere in our homes. Using Baskets In The Home, not only helps organize our belongings, but adds texture and is appealing to the eye.
With a little imagination, a few Christmas decorations, and your own home decor, you can have a stunning living room in no time at all.
To add a Winter vignette on my coffee table. I used a Christmas crystal wreath and a vintage oil can as the centerpiece. Adding a few greenery pieces, faux hydrangeas and mercury glass votives I had the Winter look I was hoping for.
I like the sage greenery which adds a softer Winter look and feel.
Oh my! Wooden bead garlands are all the rage in farmhouse home decor right now. I happen to win one in an Instagram contest. How fun is that? I like to use my wooden bead garland in all my decorating now.
Creating a pretty vignette on my coffee table turned out so pretty, with just a few Christmas decorations and what I already have in my home.
I found this 6 cup muffin tin at the thrift store. As soon as I saw it, my creative juices started flowing. There are MORE ideas right here.
Create a Winter Slumber Chalkboard with a beautiful frame and a cereal box. I know, sounds crazy, but it works perfectly.
Tiny little crystals add just a small touch of glitter and glimmer. I believe I bought these at Hobby Lobby.
To welcome your Winter guests, add crisp blue pots right outside your front door. Place evergreens in them, along with succulents and pine cones. For a fun touch, add a sweet red cardinal right on top.
What do you think you will try first?
Have a wonderful day and enjoy more Winter tips below.

Julie received an e-mail from the editor of Cottages & Bungalows.
In the email, the editor asked if Julie would be interested in having our home photographed the following week for next years (2016) Cottages & Bungalows Fall Home Tour edition. She was referring to the week of Thanksgiving! You know, the week all the Fall stuff goes bye bye and you start preparing for Christmas. So, she had a big decision to make. At first she thought, no way. She can’t do it. Then she slept on it.
When purchasing the candles, I thought about making something like this. Eucalyptus leaves seemed to be my best option at this time.

Laying a cable knit throw blanket over large fluffy pillows was the first way to add a little ambiance to our Thanksgiving. Sitting on the floor in front of our farmhouse coffee table, is a comfy way to enjoy our luscious meal.
A simple addition for texture and color was to use embroidered cloth napkins. Each one was made by my grandmother. I like bringing in a touch of family memories to our table.
The addition of eucalyptus leaves, gives a sense of bringing the outdoors in. The pumpkins were purchased orange. I used Fusion Mineral Paint to add the color I wanted.
The eucalyptus candles are probably my favorite piece on the table. (I will have a tutorial for those in tomorrow’s blog post.) You always need candles for an intimate meal, right?
With a few colorful mini lights, we have touches that are not necessary, but always worth the time and effort.
While it will be quiet and not what we are used to-24 grand babies running around, plus 14 grown ups talking and reminiscing-it will be the perfect Thanksgiving for me and my man.
Thanks for joining me today. I always enjoy your visits.
Now, if you would take some time-I would love for you to visit my blogging friends. Each one has a unique style for a Thanksgiving tablescape. You are SURE to be inspired!

During Fall I love to blend orange and blue together. The combination is soothing and a beautiful contrast from the typical oranges, reds and golden colors. You will be inspired from the blue ideas, crafts and design style from this post. Incorporating Blue Into Fall Decor has become one of my most clever ways decorate.
