Welcome to the Blue Cottage Christmas Tour — part one. I took so many pictures that you would get bored to see the whole tour in one post, so here is our kitchen all decked out for the holidays. Let me show you what I did!
Meet Alma, the cow, by the way. I found her at HomeGoods and knew she would be perfect for our farmhouse kitchen.
I liked the large, colorful poster I had on the wall before, but it was time for a change.

Blue Cottage Christmas Home Tour
My theme for this Christmas is simple and rustic farmhouse/cottage decor. As always, I decorated with a lot of thrifty and vintage finds.
I edited a lot, believe it or not.
This is how I decorated the little table and chair in our kitchen. I added the white vintage enamel tray to the shelf a while ago to hold some of our extra glasses.
The pillow was on sale at Kohl’s after Christmas last year, and the red tray and cute countdown calendar are tag sale finds.
The mercury candles are $3 at Target right now, and the silver pitcher is my latest find from the Katonah thrift store where I also found this lovely porcelain coffee pot.
I found these mercury glass votive holders even more because of their vintage feel:
The cute red truck plates are from HomeGoods, but you can find similar ones on Amazon:
I added a garland to the top of the cabinets for the first time.
I bought several of these little $3 Christmas tree at Target and decided to not add ornaments to them even thought I have a ton of small ornaments. I just added a little sticker.
I needed a new tea kettle and decided on a red one lined with enamel — my last one rusted, so I’ve learned my lesson about cheap tea kettles — and also found these cute tea towels.
Here are two other sets I really like:
This vintage sewing machine drawer usually holds our vitamins, but I added candles and greenery to it for now.
These pink vintage ornaments are also a tag sale find.
I added my Christmas cookie jar to the crate shelf and put our soap dispenser into the wooden box for added rustic charm.
I decorated our window with six little white creamers and just added one ornament. The rest of them are in the vintage vase on the shelf. The “Believe” sign is a sale items from Cottage Antiques.
There you, that was the tour of our kitchen all decked out for Christmas. I hope you liked it!
What do you think: still too much decor or just enough?
I wrote a separate post about this year’s Christmas tree because it’s a long story, and a DIY post about the nifty centerpiece I created for my Christmas tablescape.
