Christmas Cottage Crushes.

Who else is completely overwhelmed by the gorgeousness out there in blogland as it decks its halls?  Amazing creativity and beauty.  The decor mags have gotta be shakin' in their Santa boots knowing how easy it now is to browse utterly magical homes for free.  Shakin' I tell ya.

So here are some of my faves so far this year....I will hopefully do this next week too.

This girl is livin' the life in merry old England.  Fanstastic Blog.

Becky has style coming out her burlap buckets.  I drool over every post.

Deb's cottage is a dream in browns and aquas with the perfect pops of red for the holidays.

Sarah is a blogger after my own heart.  Love her humor and her style.  Her stocking has made the rounds on all the A-list blogs this season.

Michelle's blog is a plethora of inspiration....

I love all of Lisa's DIY projects.  Tons of Christmas goodness this year!

Country Cottage White Goodness.  Every post.

Nita has amazing style with a whimsical touch.  Perfect for the holidays.

Yep.  New blogger.  Yep.

Tammy's blog is full of creativity and vintage style.  Vignettes to die for.

Basically love all her vintagey goodness.  We've established that we'd be besties if we lived closer.

I'm still making the rounds at all the holiday parties.  I've saved tons of pics in my inspiration files.  I will need 4 houses to decorate next year.  This is a problem.

Some of these blogs are new to me. Goodie! I love checking out new blogs. I am a big fan of Cherry Menlove and Kate's Place. But I'm really crazy about the tree and the colors in the Mod Vintage Life photo.

Love all the inspiration you posted here. I am lucky that I got the tree up this year. Every year I say next year will be different. I have yet to do it though! I haven't even finished the stockings that I started last year! Oh well, next year....

Great eye candy, all of them! I had to go follow a few.

I'm gonna be visiting some of these 'new to me' cottages. Thanks for sharing!

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

I follow more than a few of these blogs. Very creative and talented gals! Drooling is not very becoming but it's hard not to when you look at these photos.

Thanks for sharing! They are all lovely! Hugs,Traci

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

That Christmas tree at Mod Vintage Life looks lovely!! Love the colors!

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

Thanks for showing me off. I can't wait to go look at all the others you've shown here....some I've never seen. I still have more Christmas to finish up but I've been out running around too much. Why does it have to get so busy this time of year? I just want to sit and stare at my tree. I can't wait to check these other blogs out tonight.

Wow! What inspiring photos! Some of the blogs are new to me also. You are right about your decorating magazine comment. How can they compete with all the fresh and new material appearing on blogs everyday? It's funny, the whole reason I started reading decorating blogs in the first place was because I was missing all the great decorating shows on HGTV when it practically turned into "Real Estate TV". Thanks for posting such a great blog! I really enjoy your content!

michelle said...

Erin said...

Thanks for sharing some very inspiring blogs I haven't seen before, Cindy! That's a good and bad thing though since now I'll be spending *more* time ooohing and aaahing on the Interweb! LOL

Sarah @ Cozy.Cottage.Cute. said...

Thank you so much for the mention. I nearly dropped my cookie into my tea in excitement.

I hope no-one notices that I strategically take photos so that no bare walls and/or uncurtained windows and/or golden retriever fur balls are showing...

THANK YOU!!!

My internet has been down the last few days and what a wonderful treat now that I'm back to see you featured my blog!!!!! Wow, what a wonderful surprise. Thank you so much!!!
p.s. My son Grant keeps asking me if Ben has posted on his blog yet. You'll have to let Ben know he has a faithful follower waiting for him to post. Has he made any Christmas Legos? :)
