1000th Post - Warm Winter Touches in my Country Kitchen

Welcome back my sweet friends!

I truly find it hard to believe this is my 1000th post here at Creative Country Mom's!  

I am thrilled to share my home and little projects with you.  I have been blogging almost 7 years now, and I have loved every bit of it.  I feel I have found a place in the blogging world, not too big, not too small.  A lovely circle of friends like me that enjoy sharing a little glimpse of our lives and interests.  As with all bloggers, you start out so small, then every year a bit more... till you are so humbled to have reached so many who know and subscribe to your work.  It is really, sincerely a joy and passion for me.  I am every thankful to each of you.

DIY - Antique Style Makeover for Bright Gold Holiday Decor

Welcome back dear friends!
If you follow me on Facebook this is a project I was talking about last week.
A fun, simple way to repurpose some of your holiday decor.
 This is how my little collection of angels started.
I have used them for at least 10 years this way.
But with my lighter colors this year, they were just too bright.

So today I am sharing how I took them from too gaudy gold...
to shabby sweet in a few easy steps.

Printed Burlap Themed Christmas Tree in Front Entry

Hello my dears and welcome back!
Today I am sharing some of my front entry area.
It may seem like I am jumping the gun sharing a tree before Thanksgiving.
But this tree has been up for at least two months.
It was part of my fall decor....
But for Christmas I glammed it up a bit with browns and bling!

Pretty as a Postcard.... First Snow of the Year

 Today's post is a quick hello...
From a snowy Indiana countryside.
We woke up to a beautiful three inches of powder.
A magical winter wonderland.

And a SNOW DAY before Thanksgiving to make up.
No School for us.

I am still working on the holiday decor.
I have the kitchen and entry done.
The office, family room, living room and master
are partially done... aka a mess!

 Slowly but surely!

Today I had my 30th blogger sign up for the
Christmas in the Country Tour right here at Creative Country Mom's.I added 10 more spots and there is one more week to sign up.
Here is the link... if you want to be featured.


I am so excited to have all the wonderful homes to share this year!

Happy Holidays and God Bless!
