Country Christmas in the Sunroom

The sunroom went Country this year with red and black checks

and the look of vintage.

It all started with this red and black checked ribbon

that I tied on a lantern.

I paired the lantern with my reproduction vintage Santa.

The Pottery Barn chalkboard pillow is used again in the sunroom this year

however, moved to the chair as it went well with the red and black checked

ribbon on the lantern next to the chair.

One of my favorite Christmas pillows, was in the Media Room last year

and thought it worked well this year in the sunroom.

It seems like I shifted many items from the Media Room to the Sunroom this year.

Which includes these W-E-L-C-O-M-E blocks and the felted wool Santas.

I made these felted wool Santas in our neighborhood Crafty Chicks group.

Has to be one of my most favorite projects.

You may have seen my little tree in the photos above.

This year’s sunroom tree was also dressed in the red and black checked ribbon.

My “Santa Moose”, a gift from my friend Linda many years ago

to remind me of our Wyoming trip of us always wanting to spot a moose,

is nestled beside the tree.

The tree topper was made from a vintage quilt.

I placed the tree in a vintage galvanized bucket as I did the year before.

The tree is on my indoor potting bench.

The vintage scale is a staple of the bench and I switched out

a succulent for a pair of vintage Charles Dickens books and a collectible lighted house.

This year’s Sunroom Christmas decor has to be my favorite.

This ornament of a “Woody with a tree, less the surfboard” just makes me smile.

  11. PS, where did you get the woody pillow? PB? I found a runner with a woody on the ends this year for Joe’s room downstairs and he has a woody car that we pout a tree on. I also have the red VW pillow down there and we got a car and put a tree on it too. Would love to get him the woody pillow too.

  17. Hi Shirley, your sunroom is one of my favorites in your house. I just know how much I love mine, and I see yours as a similar room, so comfortable, and fun place where you surround yourself with things that are ‘you’. Your Christmas decor is very homey and inviting. Happy December (and sunshine!).

  24. I can understand why you love those felted Santas. They look like something one would find at a high end store!

    I picked up some plaid ribbon the other day. It’s similar to your’s but has a bit of green in it. It’s funny how one thing can be the catalyst for an entire room. I just love your little tree in the galvanized pail, and I don’t think the plaid ribbon could have found a better home than your sunroom. Everything is just beautifully done.
