A relaxed Modern Country Christmas weekend...



This gorgeous picture sums up the look I love at Christmas time. It's not an overly styled look. It just gently calls you in to sit down with family and friends, in a relaxed and welcoming home.

Thank you so much for all your great comments about cameras yesterday. You really helped me. I think I'm nearly there now in my decision. I'll let you know what Santa decides to bring me!

My handsome Mr Modern Country has been away this week but he gets back today. I just got the call to say that he's landed and is on his way home to me. Yeeeeehaaaaah!!! I've missed his lovely hugs so much. I'm so excited to see him. I'm just off to prettify myself for him.

Oooh, and do follow along to make sure you get to join in with Wreath Week, starting on Monday, when I'll share how to make a stunning wreath from scratch and for free.

{Did someone say stunning AND free?....Yes, siree....}

Courtney {a thoughtful place} said...

Hi Sarah! What an inviting image. I want to pop into that picture. Have a wonderful time with hubby. Isn't it nice to have someone you miss so much! :)

Almost Precious said...

Love the look, brings Christmas back to its roots which is about family and friends, not about creating the biggest light display in the neighborhood, or spending a fortune on the latest, greatest Christmas fads.
It really shouldn't matter if one has a 20 foot tall mega-tree or a tree that's only 2 foot tall for Christmas is all about love and faith and charity.

May you and all your readers have a wonderful and Merry Christmas.

Stunning AND free? Can't wait. Have a great w/end with the mister and family.

Edith Hope said...

Dear Sarah, Oh, yes, I can so readily imagine how magical your Christmas table will look. I am certain that you have perfected the art of relaxed elegance and that you will all have a lovely time.

How exciting that Mr MC will be back home this weekend. It is most endearing that your heart still gives a liitle skip at the thought of his return!!!

LindyLouMac said...

Just the sort of look I like also. I hope your husband is safely home by now and that you will have a good weekend, stay safe in the snowy weather and most important, warm :)

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

Oh I love that too! So pretty, relaxed and very Christmassy (I made up that word). I would feel right at home there for sure!
Enjoy your hubby!
Valerie

Mrs Buttercup said...

Ooooh so looking forward to seeing your wreath tutorial...was thinking of asking for you to do one if you hadn't thought of it, (you beat me to it!) Love the Christmassy pic too. I'd be very happy if my house looked like that! Love all the pictures, keep them coming. xx

Hi Friend! So glad to hear your dear hubby is on his way home to you all! Thanks again for your sweet email and I can't wait for wreath week...I have never made one so I definitely need a little hand holding! :-)

The candle chandelier is just gorgeous! What a lovely room.

That table looks so much like our last one until our dog (when he was a teething puppy) chewed the legs on the trestles! I loved how cozy this looks!

Hi Sarah! Boy, that pic sure makes you want to belly up to the table, doesn't it? It is such a cozy, beautiful scene. I can't thank you enough for your sweet words on my blog today. I was feeling down until I read your comment, and you really brightened my day! I don't think I've ever been called 'inspiring'!
Have a lovely weekend, and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Sweet Sarah,

Oh, my! It's so nice to see when you leave me a comment! Honestly! It makes me happy whenever you come visit me.

Now, I love, love that picture. It feels like a country cottage. I am crazy over beams and that's just perfect for me! Great choice!

I thought it was so cute when you said that you were going to prettify yourself for Mr. Modern Country... Isn't it great that feeling that you love someone and you want to be your best and look the best you can? :-) I am happy that you have that someone. :-)

Enjoy your weekend with your love. :-)

I love this picture. The natural elements are wonderful and it looks so comfortable and welcoming.
Beautiful.

Claire said...

Never mind the christmassy stuff. All I wanna know now is how did you prettify yourself? Make-up (nah), staightened hair (nah), cutesy gingham dress with bows (maybe). xxx

Love it - classic, laid back and beautiful!
