Shabby Chic Farm Cottage Christmas

Welcome and Merry Christmas to all of you!  I have been at our little farm cottage quite a bit during this season and thought I would share my little farm cottage all decorated for a shabby chic Christmas.  Christmas past and present, with tea time too!  The cottage may be red on the outside, but lots of pink on the inside!

The shed in the back is my tiny tea parlor!

Lets start the tour with tea in the living room.  Help yourself to a cup of tea, as this post is rather long!

I moved the sofa up close to the fireplace.

A few pictures of my cupboards in the kitchen filled with pretties.

Lastly, the bedroom with a early morning tea I had the other day.

Little Christmas tree decorated with tiny teapots and teacups.

Sweet wall cabinet filled with miniature teapots and teacups.

I hope you enjoyed my shabby chic farm house tour!  Thank you so much for visiting!

I will be taking an extended blogging break.  I have been thinking about ending this blog,  but just can't say the words right now.  We will see what the future holds.

I want you to know how much I appreciate your friendship through the years and your lovely comments you left me.  May you all have a wonderful blessed New Year!

I will be joining Bernideen for her Friends Sharing Tea party.

Oh I absolutely love love love this post! I cannot even believe your dreamy cottage (inside and out!) and your wee tea place in back? Oh what I would do to have something so feminine and adorable and awesome - a safe place for pretty china and then some. You have an amazing collection!

I also LOVE your pretty white tree. I think the pink just pops with it.

I sure hope you don't stop your blog. I am SO SO SORRY I haven't been around to comment much - I just haven't been blogging much at all. But don't leave us! We love to see what you've been up to!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Teatime hugs! God bless! ♥

I love your little cottage! Pink perfection! Please don't stop your blog. It seems like so many of the tea blogs have just been dropping off and I really love to visit them.

Thank you so much for the Christmas Tour of your Tea Cottage. Everything is lovely. I had to scroll through the pictures more than once to make sure I saw everything. Merry Christmas, Nancy, and God's blessings in the new year. I understand about suspending your blog. It's a very time consuming commitment, and at times you wonder if people in blogland are really even interested. I've pondered giving up my blog too - or at least cutting back from daily posts. Thank you for the lovely posts you've given us. They've truly been a gift of love.

Oh Nancy,
I absolutely love your cottage. It's gorgeous! I want to come and sip tea with you and admire your pretty shabby chic decor. Such sweet white cabinets and little china pretties! I hope that you don't end your blog but I know how busy life gets and do understand. Thank you for letting us see your sweet
cottage. Blessings, Karen

Your cottage and tea parlor are so charming. I hope you'll at least give us monthly updates! Wishing you a delightful December.

Oh Nancy, I would be so sad to see you give up your blog altogether...I look forward to your tea times and your beautiful home/cottage/gardens. I love this little Farm lovely in every way...I would absolutely LOVE to visit there someday.

I will be praying for you that you will change your mind about leaving your blog. Take a little break...enjoy your Christmas time and become refreshed and renewed...and come back! God bless you my friend. Would still LOVE to meet you if you are in Florida...hopefully at a time I can get away from my "duties" here. Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New years.

Thank you for the tour of your beautifully decorated cottage, Nancy. I maximized the photos to better oggle your tea pretties. Hee!

Thank you for the visit and kind comments. Merry Christmas!

This little cottage looks like something in a fairy tale or a dream Nancy.
I love all the details and cute furniture. What a sweet corner hutch cabinet you have and that cozy fireplace. Thanks for sharing and linking everything!

Oh Nancy, you know how much I love visiting you! Your cottage is just absolutely darling and the perfect tea lover's dream, with such coziness and charm. I would truly miss seeing your lovely tea parties, but please do what is right in your heart. Love and Merry Christmas blessings to you, sweet friend.

What beautiful photos! I loved seeing the farmhouse in the snow ... so picturesque. And I especially loved seeing all the detailed photos of your Christmas and Shabby Chic decor ... so soothing and calming and pretty ... just what I needed to brighten this cold, gray winter evening!

Oh Nancy, what a dreamy place you decorated for Christmas! I love all the pink everywhere! And your mantel is quite lovely with the lace scarf and all. The white tree is gorgeous too. And your blooming Foxglove's how magnificent!!
Wishing you and yours a blessed Christmas!

Gina @ VictorianWannaBe said...

I really like your shelving unit that looks like a dollhouse too!

Dear Nancy,
What a darling cottage you have and you have it decorated so sweetly. Your furniture is lovely and all those little touches you have added make it uniquely yours. I love the sweet little red toile teacup on the tree. Your little cottage tucked into the snow looks so very charming. Happy New Year, my dear friend. We would miss you if you stopped blogging. This past year was a hard year and I thought about stopping because I was exhausted but I think I would miss it and all my bloggy friends; you included! Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Take care, Nancy!
