Farmhouse Christmas-Outdoor decor

Glad you could stop by.  I'm joining in with all the festivities...so many wonderful blog parties. I love to see how everyone is decorating and celebrating. It is wonderful.
Welcome to our Farmhouse in S. California!
We live in the mountains,  on 3 acres, we
have several hundred chickens and a small herd
of sheep.

Woodland tablescape...I spray painted the lime green placemats brown so they would fit in better!
We actually have a pine tree on our property since we live in the mountains, so I love to cut some greenery and use it with my other (fake) Christmas trees.
The gal at my local nursery asked me if I wanted an old junky door?  Below, the one with peeling paint...yes...I did a happy dance out to the car!

This is my plant table, spray painted the nesting boxes, the table is a sofa table with a door over it. And the table we eat on is an outdoor fold up table with a tablecloth on it. Everything has been transformed with paint or fabric.
If you get the chance be sure to me my indoor tablescape using roses and white ornaments! Here @ http://ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com/
Last Christmas it snowed and I loved the picture so much I wanted to share it. No snow here though...not yet!





Glad you could come by for a visit!

To know that you have a herd of sheep is just so cool!!! What a wonderful life experience to raise animals! Beautiful Christmas decor both this year and last. Merry Christmas!

All your outdoor decor is just wonderful, so homey and fun...and did you say "small herd of sheep"? I'll be right over, I know they're work, but oh, those faces! thanks so much for joining in for the party! xo

I always enjoy your posts and a peek into country life. My dream is to live in an old farmhouse (completely modernized, of course!) and raise chickens and pygmy goats. Your Christmas decorations are charming. I love the old door, the picket fence, the fresh boughs of pine! And your white rose tablescape was gorgeous!
