Happy Holidays City Farmhouse Friends! It's Emily here from The Wicker House. Today I wanted to stop by and share a few fun projects that I have come up with over the years to bring Christmas charm into our holiday decorating. And the best part is that all of these projects can be done for free! There's no need to spend lots of money on holiday decor, especially this time of year when you already have a lot of other shopping to do. The first project that I want to share with you is this lighted peace sign wreath. This is something that I have recently made using a piece of cardboard, branches from an old broken Christmas tree, and a strand of lights. Even though this cost me … [Read More...]
With Christmas only 18 days away I thought I would share my favorite online, cozy picks this holiday season. I don't know about you but I am a big time procrastinator with most things including shopping. Truth be told I don't like to shop. Crazy, I know but I much prefer to shop online. This week begins the online shopping madness for me and will probably last until the week before the big day. I always find it helpful to narrow & pin my favorites. These are my favorite cozy Christmas finds for her this season, click the names under each items for links.

Hi there friends! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! This weekend most of you will begin your Christmas decorating, if you haven't already, so I wanted to arm you with plenty of inspiration as you get started. If you have been following my holiday posts then you know I am keeping things neutral this year. I change things up from year to year and make it fresh & fun. This year I decided to go with a soft palette of white, cream, gray and brown with a wee bit of black. With a few simple changes of accessories I am creating a look that is organic and relaxed that feels festive but can also last through the winter months. And that means when the season is over you don't have put … [Read More...]
