Log Cabin Christmas - Part 1

Good morning everyone! I thought I would share a few photos of our Christmas decorated log cabin. For many years I dreamed of having a cozy log cabin and I always thought it would be a wonderful place to spend Christmas. (As well as drive my neighbors crazy with me yelling "Hi there" from the deck. Ha! Next I might break out the schnauzer pajamas....)


Here's my skinny 9 foot Christmas tree. I put it up all by myself! Scout tried to climb onto the ladder to help me hang ornaments. I'm lucky to still be alive...





Here's my electric fireplace. I added some cranberries to the garland afterwards. One day I'll have a fieldstone fireplace.......(Greg is running to hide his wallet right now.....)






Here's a close up of my Santa. Notice that he's carrying a birdhouse? He likes the birdys too.








Here's a close up of my tree. I love my angel ornament. Greg says he hopes she inspires me.......what does he mean by that?!

Is that fireplace new? I don't remember it from last year. It looks really nice! I love your tall skinny tree. Nice job decorating!
Hey, guess what? We finally have some snow! Not much, only a couple inches, but snow! It was real cold this morning - 16!

So pretty and cozy. Can't wait till I have a log cabin to spend Christmas (and everyday) in!

Mildred said...

Such a lovely log home to spend Christmas in. We love the skinny trees because they are easier to decorate and put lights on. Your tree is beautiful and that Santa is just perfect for you Shelley. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and smooches for Scout!

Brandi said...

Love that tree! Well, actually I love every thing I see! You did a great job.

And there is something special about a log cabin/home decorated for Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Oh...how pretty! I'd LOVE to be STRANDED in a LOG CABIN in a snowstorm!! (Well, I'd LOVE to be STRANDED ANYWHERE INSIDE in a snowstorm!!) LOL!

As for the angel comment, tell Greg if he keeps that up, Santa might not leave him anything.

LOL!!! ROFLOL!!

Everything looks just like a log cabin Christmas should. I love joining you vicariously through the internet, it's so nice of you to share. You did a great job getting that tree up. I laughed at your field stone fireplace and angel comments. Aren't husbands funny? Have a wonderful Christmas.
Blessings,
Marcia

Ah, I love your Christmas decorations at the cabin SO much. Everything is so gorgeous and cozy. And with snow outside, it must only add to the festive mood. :)

April said...

Ahh...what I'd give to have a place like your to call my own!

Anne said...

Cute skinny tree! Beautiful decorations, Shelly!

Lillie Mae Acres said...

All I can say is WOW! This room looks beautiful. I had to wait years for my woodburning stone fireplace, it was worth it though. We have built our home in stages, and the fireplace was always a "plan".

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh Shelley, I absolutely LOVE it... Your cabin is exactly what I 'dream' about having... Guess, for me, it will be in another lifetime. I will just enjoy yours through your pictures.

Love your tree, and especially the SANTA... Wow--what a beauty. AND to think --he is a birdhouse. Terrific!!!!

Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see Part II.
Hugs,
Betsy

You've got the cabin beautifully decorated for Christmas. Somehow I'm not surprised that your Santa is carrying a bird house. I hope you can keep Scout off of ladders while you finish your decorating.

Busy Bee Suz said...

You are so cute and your cabin is Gorgeous too!!! I will show my trees tomorrow...really, I will!

Jen said...

Done in true log cabin style! It all looks fabulous! but what doesn't in logs. ;)

Snug as a bug in a rug...I would say. Very cosy & so charmingly decorated. Have a great XMas Shelley. Hugs..Frank.

Very beautiful decorations. Can't wait to see Part 2.

I think it all looks great! Hey, there is a special place for these artificial fireplaces isnt there? I am loving having one in my bedroom this winter.

I love that santa.

Tricia said...

Beautiful Christmas decorations & what a GORGEOUS home you have! Love all the wood in your log cabin! Definitely a cozy home

Karen said...

Someday! sigh. Someday.
I love seeing inside yours. It's kind of like my "cabin fix". Love your decorations. Perfect!
You still haven't told me how you did the "friend thing"! Scout is my only "friend". How sad is that?
LOL.
Merry Christmas Dear Shelley! And Scout and Greg too. Did he ever come back after hiding his wallet?
:) Karen

Beautiful and cozy! I'm sure your husband didn't mean anything by that comment you little angel!

KentuckyFarmGirl said...

Beautiful! And yes it's really me! I'm hoping to get back to visiting all my favorite places as soon as the holiday rush is over!

The Retired One said...

I love your little electric fireplace!
We have a large stone fireplace, but it is gas and not wood. My hubby wishes we had put a wood one, as we both like the smell and crackling of one, but the gas one is so much cleaner and I just have to flip a switch.ha

City Girl Country Heart said...

Your cabin is beautiful! I love it, especially with all the lights and Christmas decor....glad I stopped by to visit :)
Happy Holidays,
