  1. I’m really digging all the natural elements in your decor, Jennifer! It’s lovely. I imagine that’s how most people decorated before life got complicated. It makes everything feel more cozy and magical. I’ve always been fascinated with dried pods as well, so it’s funny to hear you say that! (My kids are always hungry too, by the way.) Happy Holidays!

      Thanks Crissy!! I love going out foraging for stuff too!! I have a few Scotch pines in the woods behind my house where I always find the best pine cones so it’s a little game to see how far up I can reach!!

  2. Jennifer,
    I loved your beautiful home decorated for Christmas! So happy to have been on this tour with you.

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

  3. All of your Christmas floral arrangements are just stunning!

  4. Your home is so lovely! I love all the details. I’m all about bringing the natural elements in as well. And you’ve done a fabulous job!

  5. Jennifer, your home is so lovely, and beautifully decorated. Thank you for making and sharing the ticking wreath! Also, I’m envious of your short drive to the beach. 🙂 XOXO Misty

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      The red ticking made it to 3 spots..the wreath, in the garland, and on my dried orange ornaments!!! Thanks for the inspo this Christmas!! And I don’t think I could ever not live near the beach!!

  6. Jen your home looks so beautiful! I love all the festive touches you added to your gorgeous home! xoxo

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Awww, Thanks Stacy!

  7. My vintage-loving eye spied your awesome divided crate and the tool caddy; awesome pieces to decorate with! I also love your wooden cake plate; think I need one of those in my life;) Such fun to see your home and get the tour! I’m jealous you’re so near the ocean; sounds wonderful. Enjoy the Merry!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      You’d go crazy with all the little antique shops and vintage markets up and down the coast near me! I live about 25 min from both the Maine and Mass borders and you can find some real gems! The cake plate is BHG at Walmart and is $19 but has a vintage look to it.

    Everything is so lovely! So warm! So cozy! So home! I just want to cozy up with a good book and a cup of coffee, followed by girl chat about all of your projects and adventures! Thank you for sharing! I’d love to make the yarn trees. Merry Christmas!😀

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thank you so much Debbie! You are so kind!!

  9. Jennifer, we are on the same page–I have the same gingerbread sign, and also mixed faux, fresh, and dried, including oranges. Don’t they smell heavenly?! Your Christmas decor is lovely. Have a joyous Christmas season! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  11. Your kitchen and living room look lovely, Jennifer! Love the orange slices you scattered throughout your decor, and those garlands on your kitchen window look perfect! Love your close-up shots of your decor, too! Looking forward to the Christmas tree tour tomorrow! Pinned!

      Oh, Thanks so much Julie!! Yes, tree tour tomorrow!!

  12. Jen! I love your home all drssed up for Christmas!! You did a wonderful job! I am absolutely doing dried oranges everywhere next year! I love how homey they make the space!! I’m sure making them smells amazing in the house too!! XoXo

      Thanks so much Aliya!! My dried orange slice tutorial is in the works..stay tuned!!

  13. Your home is so cozy and inviting- I love the touches of green on your tree and throughout! SO pretty!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Oh, Thank you Cassie!! Green is my jam!!

  14. oh my goodness Jennifer, everything is stunning! I just love your holiday home tour. Your wooden advent calendar is so cute!

  15. Jennifer, your home is stunning and you have a real eye for making gorgeous vignettes and beautiful, collected spaces! I would love to go junking and thrifting with you bc you have found some awesome treasures! I can’t believe you run a daycare with all this beautiful decor around!! I especially love your vignette about your wall cabinet, and how you displayed items on the found cabinet/ bench in your entryway!! It was a true delight to walk through your home this morning ❤ Oh, and I want to make your wood advent calendar next year but I stink at math (don’t even get me started on geometry!!), but maybe I can get Mr DIY to make it for me?! 😉🤞 Have a wonderful holiday season my sweet friend!!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Cindy, you are the sweetest! I’ve missed junking this year…all the good bazaars and flea markets were cancelled!! But sometimes I find things I forgot I had in the basement and it’s almost like I just went thrifting!!

  16. Your home is decorated so beautifully for the holidays! I love those wintry prints above your kitchen table. My mom used to do an in-home daycare when we were growing up. It takes a special person to do that.💕

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Thanks, Jen!! I changed out my regular botanicals and printed out these…for free, my favorite kind of DIY!!

  17. Your home looks spectacular decked out for Christmas. I love the beautiful garlands over your kitchen window. (Wish I had a kitchen window to decorate!) The Lotus pods in your kitchen table centerpiece look wonderful with the other stems that you used. I love your countdown to Christmas DIY and I’ll bet that your daycare kiddos look forward to turning the wood slice over each day. I so much enjoyed your tour!

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      LOL, anything that requires the kids taking turns each day is always a trip!!! Thank you so much for your kind words Paula.
