Log Cabin Christmas - Part 2

Here are a few more photos of our cabin all decorated and ready for Christmas! I am counting down the days until we can drive up there. The snow keeps on coming so I think I need to get my skis ready!

I'm so glad Greg talked me into putting in a log staircase in our home. It was fun to put lights and garland on it for Christmas.






Here's our kitchen bar top all decorated. I also put white twinkly lights on top of the kitchen cupboards.





Here are my 2 little snow birds that Greg bought for me. I love how they are all bundled up for winter.






I love Nutcrackers too. Now I just need to go buy some nuts and put them to work!






I have Mr. Moose on the lookout for Santa on our stair landing.



I still have to go purchase 2 more Christmas presents and then start on all my baking. How about you? Are you ready for Christmas?

Merry Christmas! Your cabin looks like it should be in a magazine. It is just beautiful! Love the staircase all decorated with Mr. Moose keeping look out and those snowbirds are the cutest! I know it will be absolutely beautiful with the snow. Have the merriest Christmas ever.

Oh how I love your log cabin--and the beautiful way you decorate it... Wow!!!! Love the garland going up the stairs.

And that Christmas moose is wonderful. I also love Nutcrackers--but don't have any now.. The 'runner' on your bar top...

Everything is wonderful. Be careful getting there...

Merry Christmas to you both --and your babies.
Hugs,
Betsy

Shelley, everything looks so festive. It looks like it is just waiting for all of you to get there.
You asked if we were ready....I'm not. Haven't decorated much, and haven't started any baking.

The little birds on the runner are beyond cute!! Shelley your home always has that warm golden glow. Cozy. Just right for cuddling up with your flannel jammies and the hubby. What a wonderful place to be for Christmas! Merry Christmas Shelley in case I don't get another chance! Drive safe!!

Just a little something from Judy said...

If I ever came to visit I know I would not leave. Oh, Shelley it is so beautiful! I knew it would be. All the special touches, all the coziness, the decorations that fit in perfectly. How can you ever leave this cabin? Thank you so much for sharing it all with us. I feel honored that I got to see it. In fact, I gave you and Greg a compliment on my post today. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas in your cabin. Have fun baking.

KentuckyFarmGirl said...

I love the idea for that bar!! Our kitchen and dining area are set up almost exactly like that so you have given me a great idea!

I posted some pic of our log home and decorations on my blog a little while ago. I always love decorating it for Christmas. The first time we saw the house, my first thought was, I want to decorate that loft railing for Christmas LOL.

Karen said...

Shelley it all looks wonderful! I'm so glad you shared. If I don't talk to you again - have a Merry Christmas Dear Friend. Be safe and enjoy your cabin, your Honey, your pup and kitty and all the family. Be safe and we'll"talk" soon.
Merry Christmas! Karen

The Retired One said...

Love the lights on the staircase! We have a log home too and a log staircase, and I have always thought of doing it, now you have inspired me! ha
Hope you get some days up at the lake with snow and peace and love....it is so neat that we drove so close to your cabin when we went to visit Cathy (Yooper Yarns)! Now I can pictures where it is!

Cedar ... said...

Looks so lovely,... and I especially like your little "snowbirds"...

Sandy@American Way Farm said...

I just love all the reds at Christmas time. They seem to go so well with all the natural wood. I made Christmas/winter decorations for over my big windows 4 years ago and have never taken them down. I just love all the reds and frosted pine cones. Wishing you a very merry Christmas.

Pony Girl said...

Hi Shelly ~ so glad I found your blog! I signed up to follow. I LOVE your cabin! It has been my dream to have a cabin someday, where it would snow in the winter. Growing up, my aunt and uncle had an A-frame log home on a lake....i have such fond memories of Christmases there! You take some amazing photos, too! Have the merriest of holidays....enjoy the snow!

Connie said...

GORGEOUS!!!! I've got to wrap presents yet and have some baking yet to do! Enjoyed all your decorations and the SNOW!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Shelley,
Your loghome looks wonderful :-)
I so enjoyed your decorating photos. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a happy birthday. The snow looks so pretty, but after 50 years of New York winters; we are enjoying the milder winter here in Tennessee with NO snow on Christmas:-D

Shelley, I have the same little birds sitting on my book shelf. I love them too! Your cabin looks so cozy and warm in all that snow. I can just imagine myself in a little log cabin in upstate NY when I retire.
