Hello and welcome to this week’s edition of Farmhouse Friday!
I spent this week working on decorating our house for Christmas. It’s been slow going since I can’t seem to find the motivation to decorate this year. I think 2020 has gotten to me like it has a lot of folks and it’s hard to get into the spirt of the season. And as usual I started decorating for the holidays much later than I had planned so now I am behind the eight ball. I always have lofty holiday plans every year (“I’ll start holiday decorating in October and have our house transformed into a Christmas wonderland by December 1st!”) but also as usual life happened and here I am on December 4th struggling to get at least one room decorated to put on the blog next week.
How is your Christmas decorating going? Hopefully you are done and sitting back with a cup of your favorite hot beverage thanking your higher power that you’re not in my position right now 🙂

Link Party Rules:
Link up your DIY projects, decor inspiration, and crafts that are farmhouse style. You don’t have to live in a farmhouse or have farmhouse be the main decor theme in your home in order to link up. I love seeing farmhouse mixed in with other styles such as boho! No food or recipe posts please. I’m super flexible when it comes to defining “farmhouse” so if you are unsure of whether your post will fit in the party theme, go ahead and post it and if I feel it doesn’t fit, it will be deleted – no hard feelings! 🙂 It doesn’t matter how old your posts are, but please link up your posts only once.
I don’t require you to link back to this party, but if you do, I appreciate it! I also don’t require you to visit or comment on other blogger’s linkups, but it’s always a nice way to share the bloggy love! By linking up, you will get a chance to be featured here at next week’s party and across my social media. If you pin anything from the party, please pin it from the original source.
By linking up to this party, you permit me to share your posts and pictures via social media and as features, roundups, etc. with a link back to your post or a link back to this party on the week your post was featured.

I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling down but I suspect you are not alone. This is has been a tough year in so many ways. It’s getting to my teenage daughter and we’re dealing with that over here. Thank you for hosting this great party ‘cuz it’s parties like these that keeps my Christmas MoJo going. I am trying to get everything down but our house is a bit of a disaster zone right now. Lol. I love how you decorate so I hope you can share some of your Christmas goodness this year. Take care.
Thank you so much MaryJo! And I’m so sorry to hear that this year is getting to your daughter 🙁 I know how hard this year must be on kids and teens who want to get out and do stuff. My house is a complete disaster too – it’s a flurry of storage bins full of Christmas decor as I’m trying to get everything decorated in a reasonable amount of time before Christmas. Have a wonderful week!
Thank you so much for featuring my kale planter, Michelle, I really appreciate it. You are definitely not alone when it comes to Christmas decorating. This is the latest I’ve ever decorated and I’m struggling to come up with a theme that feels festive enough. I think sometimes the best gift we can give ourselves is grace and permission to give each other what we need most whether that be a chill holiday or buying fewer presents or creating little moments around the house here and there instead of the pressure to go all out. Sending you big hugs, sweet friend, hang in there, CoCo
Thank you so much CoCo! I feel like you really get me! I am trying to give myself grace and not compare myself with all the other decor bloggers who already have their Christmas decor up. Next year I’m starting the first of October! Hugs right back at you and I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
Tiffany Frost says
Thank you so much, Michelle, for faithfully hosting this lovely party each week! I get so much inspiration from here! I really love your Christmas rooms this year and my fav is the last one with the tree in the barrel! I LOVE your gingerbread wall! <3 That pic is so magazine worthy and lovely! I haven't gotten my Christmas decor up either. It is slow going this year but I just have to remember that this year will be gone soon! 🙂 Wishing you a happy, healthy and safe Christmas season!
Tee @ Teediddlydee
Thank you so much Tee! Knowing that you don’t have your Christmas decor up yet either makes me not feel so bad about being so behind. I hope we can both get some Christmas decorating done this week! Hugs!
Thanks so much for hosting the party. I shared my little Joy blocks. I’m not sure they’re particularly farmhouse style as shown, but I could see them done in more neutral colors! Have a great weekend!
Thank you Pam! Your Joy blocks are perfectly farmhouse as they are! I know some people think that farmhouse = everything neutral but I’m not one of those people… I do love a neutral room, but I also love adding pops of color! I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
Rachel Harper says
I really appreciate you for sharing my post. Loved al the shares and appreciate you for hosting.
You’re very welcome Rachel! I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
Julie Briones says
Thank you so much for hosting, Michelle. I was actually more ahead of the decorating game than usual, but still needed more time. Will start mid-October next year! 😉 Looking forward to seeing your Christmas home!
Thank you so much Julie! I think I’m going to start at the first of October next year – no joke! I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
Julie @ Restyle Relove says
Thanks so much for the feature Michelle! Merry Christmas, Julie
You’re very welcome Julie! Thanks so much for sharing it with us and I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
It think it’s been hard for everyone to get their act together and decorate this year. 2020 has done us all in. I love the trees you shared and they’ve definitely given me some inspiration that is much needed. Thanks for sharing!
You’re very welcome Katie! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
