My tiny house is decorated for Christmas

My tiny home just arrived here in Washington state just a few weeks ago. The day before she was due to arrive I  purchased several gallons of white paint, and I was standing with paint brush in hand when she was towed down my driveway.  However, life throws many curve balls and I was not able to work on the interior of my tiny retreat as soon or as much as I had planned to do.  I was able to do just enough within coming days to at least shoot some holiday pictures.


Decorating a tiny home does not have to be expensive to be beautiful. Most of the items in the pictures, excluding Santa were vintage treasures picked up from garage sales, thrift stores, and garage sales during this past summer. Craig's list is another wonderful resource and quite often you can buy used items at an incredible price.


The candles are from Ikea and they cost $2.00 for a four pack.
 




The white rose wreath was a $1.00 garage sale bargain
 





The little vintage style trees are from the dollar store

 





This fireplace was a Craig's List find for under a hundred dollars
 




The Christmas tree is from a local shop and was priced at 75% off after Christmas last year

 





Plastic snow, .97 cents

                                                    
                                                    



My farm table is close to 200 yrs old and I purchased it from a flea market for $65.00
                                                                               
 





                                                                           
Hand made vintage snowflakes were $1.00 each at a antique shop
                                                                     
                                    
                                            




Holiday cookies are practical and festive

 




                                                                            
Sprigs of fresh holly from my yard adorn the upper shelf in the tiny house

 




An old bed skirt doubles as a tree skirt

 




                                                                               
Santa brings me some holiday cheer, Thanks Santa
                                                                        
                  





Santa is checking his list to see if you were naughty or nice this past year




Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

I came upon your blog following another blog and I am so envious. Reading back I LOVE that you are in your 50's and still longed for that playhouse, tiny special retreat. The reason? I am also in my 50's and when I was a child a girl down the street had a victorian-like playhouse I coveted badly. I never forgot it and have always wanted my own. We have a wood "shed" out back that right now is being used for storage but my plan is to make it my "playhouse". You have really inspired me and I plan to bookmark your blog in hopes to see more photos of the inside and outside of YOUR special place.
