This is going to be our first Christmas in our log home this year. We are in the country and farmhouse decors will be appropriate. However, I got tons of Christmas decorations, some of them are still new in original packaging unopened. I would like to enjoy using them first before ditching them and be replaced with anything country or farmhouse.
Here are some of the decors we’ve done in the house so far. I am not done decorating yet, I still got the dining area to do, table set up and such. I like how the lights and decors bring so much warmth and set our mood to feel the spirit of Christmas.
This year’s color will be green, red and gold. The staircase railing is also decorated as you can see in the picture below, it is my first time to decorate such a thing you know? The girls are thrilled now that we have two of our trees up. They so look forward for the presents to appear under our big tree in the living room.
We are one of those that are so blessed and are able to purchase a house we all like. It is a log house that was built in 2007. We are the third owner of this house. We think it’s beautiful, all natural wood inside and brown painted/treated logs on the outside, it is a 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths two-storey house with wrap-around porch.
Right now, we are still in the process of moving and arranging our stuff to make this house cozy and homey. It is situated on a 4+-acre farm on a major US highway in East Texas. We love it out here, it is quiet and you can see the beautiful green trees and in the backyard, you can look as far as your eyes can see!
The closest neighbor we have are the previous owners and their sons which their house is sitting adjacent to our property.
Anyway, one of my favorite parts of the house is the front porch. It is where I can get to hear the traffic ( makes me feel I am not too far from the civilization), the neighbors’ roosters. And it is the front porch where I can watch the kids play, Calico hunting for lizards and admire my plants in pots and hanging baskets. So relaxing! I would like to think that I am beginning to experience a beautiful country life. Thanks to my husband for his ability to buy a property with no problems giving us a life with no worries.
Our log home at night
Our dining room is slowly coming together. It is all orangey/fall looking right now due to upcoming season, Fall and Halloween. I am planning of changing decors as we move through the Holiday seasons. Top of the refrigerator needs a knick knack or two and would love to have a galvanized “friends and family gather here” décor over the doors.
Keep coming as I will update some parts of our home as I am working on putting up stuff slowly.
