Today is the final installment in the fun Let’s Get Festive Christmas Blog Hop hosted by Rachelle from My Hubbard Home. The topic is Christmas Home Tours…
I don’t have my whole house decorated for Christmas yet. With the switch to online learning, teaching from home has taken the majority of my energy and time for now. But, since I’m spending 8+ hours per day in my home office now, I did manage to add few cozy Christmas touches in here.
I’ve been lighting this Farmhouse Fresh Balsam Fir & Oak candle while I work. Both the wintery scent, plus the flickering light add to my cozy workspace.
I decorated my office in neutral tones, because I find it very serene, so I kept my small Christmas touches in here in line with the neutral decor.
I am really enjoying working in this space, whether it be on my blog, or for school, because it has such a peaceful vibe.
Christmas Tree with Fairy Lights
Vintage Pastry Fork Ornaments
These vintage pastry forks from MS Ltd in Sheffield, England are one of the things I ended up with from my parent’s things. I believe that they belonged to my grandmother Gertie whose farm I spent a lot of time on as a child, because they were in the same box as other things that were Gertie’s.
In doing some research, I discovered that they were part of an Around the World Shoppers Club from the 1940s and 50s. I found this really cute blog post with some good information about these pastry forks.
Rather than let these adorable little forks continue to hide, packed away in a box, I decided to use them on my little office tree for more vintage vibe. I didn’t want to permanently alter them however, so I simply tied a ribbon around them, and attached a string to the top for hanging.
Don’t they look cute hanging on my little tree? 💕 Now I can enjoy them for the next month or so, before removing the ribbons and tucking them safely back in their original box.
Neutral Colored Winter Scene Canvas
For another cozy Christmas touch, I hung up this winter scene canvas with adorable deer. The colors work perfectly in my office.
Vintage Urn with Greenery & Lights
I removed the dried hydrangeas from my antique urn, and replaced them with some greenery, more fairy lights, and this sweet little owl floral pick I got at Hobby Lobby. Isn’t he the cutest?
He reminds of the the owl they found in the Rockefeller Christmas tree! Did you guys see that story this week?
A Warm Blanket
Because I get started working in here pretty early, it can be chilly. I keep this blanket that was my mom’s draped over my chair, which is perfect for laying across my lap as needed.
A Hidden Away TV
My husband recently ordered and set up this small TV in my office armoire. On Saturday morning, I enjoyed sipping my coffee and writing my blog post with a Hallmark Christmas movie on in the background. 🎄☕️☃️
I’ve got 5 days off for the Thanksgiving break, so I plan to get the rest of my Christmas decor set up. In the meantime, I’m focusing on small Christmas touches here and there…
