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!

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. I always find it helpful to narrow & pin my favorites. These where my favorite cozy Christmas finds for her…

Hi friends! It’s Christmas tree & family room sharing day!!! And another installment of the Farmhouse Holiday Series hosted by my friend Kristen from Ella Claire.
This is such a busy time of year, isn’t it?! It seems Christmas comes quicker and quicker each year and the push to decorate starts earlier and earlier. Right? In blogland we begin right at the start of November so you have plenty of ideas when you are ready yourself but the stores are catching on as well. It can be overwhelming and costly to buy new things each year, I know:). This year I decided to keep things somewhat simple and neutral, so that I could use some of my accessories thru the winter. My favorite accessory? You guessed it, PILLOWS! This year I layered my holiday home with tons of cozy textures, beautiful plaids + festive neutrals. Here are my 25 favorite cozy, chic pillows perfect for the holiday season + months after….

My little Jack went to soccer on Saturday and scored 2 goals. He told me he woke up and believed he could & that is how he did it. I wanted to cry, it was such a special moment as a mom. As grown ups we fear things that seem hard or undoable, whatever it may be. Telling ourselves we can do it seems so basic and rudimentary that we often forget to do the very same thing we tell our kids to do.
Everything I create for this blog is all me and at times I doubt if I can do it. But there is a will there to keep learning & growing so I tell myself I can do it. Yup, I admit it woodworking scares the heck out of me sometimes. I do love a good challenge though, that is why I was thrilled to jump on board with Minwax this fall, to come up with 4 projects geared to inspire your future woodworking endeavors. My first was an easy picture frame for large images, followed by my floating bench and today I am bringing you the easiest DIY live edge bench ever!
