Farmhouse bedroom dressed for Christmas -2018

As the final hours of this glorious Christmas day are approaching, I am finally sharing (just what is the rush?) more farmhouse goodness. These photos were taken on different days over the past two weeks. If you would like to see my front room decorated for Christmas just go back one post.

 I think that a lot of bloggers self impose stress on themselves in order to get a post up by a certain date. I am not one of those self proclaimed home stylist bloggers. I give myself permission to 'roll slow' these days, live in the moment and break all so called rules that would otherwise manifest into stressful "have to" or "must do" deadline moments.  I wasn't always like this, I used to live a rushed and, 'way to busy', over scheduled every minute type of life, no more. Relocating to and living in these beautiful Appalachian mountains has a way of chilling a person out. Especially,- if you move here from the West coast or the Pacific North West, like I did. Life is so much different here, and all in a very good way. My only regret is not leaving the West coast much sooner than I did.

 Back to my farmhouse....My bedroom is very small but also sufficient for my needs at this time in my life. It has the original plank walls and molding as well as the original plank flooring. Oh, yeah- wavy glass window panes abound in this little farmhouse. Since this 570' farmhouse is a real OLD farmhouse it is drafty in the winter. That just comes with life in a real farmhouse. Can I get a witness from anyone else who lives in a REAL farmhouse?  Winter invites use of heavy blankets and an assortment of quilts. I bet some of you are surprised to see that I actually use more than monochromatic colors in my farmhouse decor. But I do change it up now and again with my whims and seasons. I found this old simple quilt for just $10.00. It is a tad colorful and somewhat bright for my taste, but  it will be changed out as the weather warms up and the drafts stop flowing.

A vintage iron bed fits this space perfectly

In different lightening this old quilt shows it's true colors.

My vintage prayer bench is the perfect height for kneeling and prayers

I have more photos to share but I might hold onto them so that I can shock myself and get a post up early next  Dec. LOL. Then again, since I march to a different drummer, I may share them later in the week.

 I hope y'all had a blessed Christmas. YOU are the reason for the season. Jesus is not the reason, the reason is YOU. HE was born, died, rose again to bring salvation to the world. He came to the world in flesh for you to receive salvation and life on earth more abundantly and because HE adores us and desires to dwell with all his creation in a one on one personal relationship. If you would like prayer please leave a comment, and if you do not want your comment public, just let me know and I will read it personally and pray for you. It will be posted unless you request privacy. God bless you.

As always - Remember, that it is NEVER too late for a happy childhood. Now please make time to play, and hopefully make time to pray.

With love and Christmas blessings...

Hi, Tonita. Those iron beds are so perfect for small spaces, because their scale is so thin, but so strong. Your bedroom is so sweet, and the prayer bench is so charming! I love the old walls, and I hope you can keep them despite drafts. They can blow insulation in, but I don't know how! It's a genuine farmer's house!
It is nice to accomplish at your own beat. I like the way you reframed the season with your own meaningful thoughts. Merry Christmas! And post more if you want. I leave mine up at least the day after January 6th. xoxo Su

12-26-18 Merry Christmas Tonita, Your bedroom looks so warm and cozy. I know you said that your old farmhouse is drafty, however, these pictures make it look warm! I noticed your cowgirl boots by the bed-ready for emergencies during the middle of the night. Possible chickens escaping, raccoons scratching at your back door, or a possible bear ambling through your woods. You never know when they might come in handy. Your vintage angel seems to be enjoying her new life with you and follows your every move. I love your combination of different shades of cream, antique gold, shiny bangles, and a splash of unexpected colors. I also like the wooden ornaments above your windows. You have done so much in your little farm house and it shows! Thank you for sharing another Tonita masterpiece. Elizabeth

Ok Helloooooo Tonita. Glad I came for a visit. I love your sweet angel you have. Your bedroom is so pretty. Oh and I love that you live in this tiny house. I thought my house was small. I signed up to follow you through email so I will not miss your blog posts. Thanks for your visit to mine. Now I have found your blog and am going to snoop around lol! Hope your Christmas was a good one.

Hi Kris,
I have been a fan of your blog for a very long time. Love your style.
I live in my 570' tiny farmhouse but also own one of those tiny homes on wheels which was the inspiration for this blog. My tiny house on wheels is only 8' wide and 18' long on the inside. Several old timers actually lived in my farmhouse and raised their children here back in the day when there was no running water, electricity or a bathroom. The original outhouse still is (somewhat standing) just in the woods outside my door. My, how times have changed. Thanks for visiting.

Hi Ms. Elizabeth. Glad I cleaned up my bedroom before i took pictures of it, as you noticed every detail. LOL. Merry Christmas my friend.

Hi Su, Thanks for visiting over my way. Yeah, my Christmas decor will probably stay up through the end of Jan. Not in any rush over here and love all the lights soft glow in my cottage at night.

I am loving your blog and your beautiful style! LOVE the handmade angel...just perfect for your bedroom! Of course the boots and pink tree are fabulous too! And that quilt is nice for cold winter nights. I lived in the mts of NC for many years and always had a down comforter near by! Happy holiday!

Now I'm going to go back and look at other posts I've missed. So glad you're happy in your cozy farmhouse. It suits you perfectly. Hugs, Nancy
