This Old Colonial Home

Filling our house with love and a lot of DIY

Happy New Year!


Well hello, old friends! It certainly has been awhile. I’ve been wanting to get back to blogging, but I haven’t had time to write and honestly I didn’t have anything to write about. The baby has kept us both pretty busy these past few months. Our home projects have been traded in for diaper changes, feedings, baths, sleepless nights, and snuggles.children-distraction-001I’m certainly not complaining. Our little one truly is a blessing. But I do miss decorating and DIYing and sharing it with you on this little blog.

So for now I figured I’d play catch up and share some of my favorite Fall and Christmas decor that I managed to put together this year. (My apologies if you’ve already seen some of these on Instagram.)fall-living-room-decor fall-vignette-coffee-table fall-mantel-displaychristmas-tree-chalkboard christmas-stockings-staircase christmas-pillows-and-signs christmas-tree-reflection christmas-tree-presentsAlso, I just had to share some gifts I received for Christmas. Check out this crafting apron!crafting-apron party-craft-apronAnd how cute are these chalkboard mugs?!chalkboard-mugs(Thanks, family. You get me!)

Hopefully in 2016 we’ll get back to some more projects. On my wish list: new carpet and couch for our family room, a DIY coffee table with storage, and maybe a new front door. Hey, a girl can daydream!

Wishing you a prosperous, productive, and peaceful New Year!

  1. Where can we buy the gray rug with white stars that you have in the web?


  2. I love that apron! Nice decorating (as always 🙂


  3. Just looking at your pictures again… I love all of the little details. Our living room currently has a couch and a chair. End. Of. Story. (unless you include the zillions of legos all over the place!) Master bedroom has bed (not even a head board!) It pains me to look around this place! We’ve been spending all of our time, $ and effort outside and saving for some major renovations in the coming 1-2 years. After that, we can get to furniture and decorating. Until then, I’m going to keep looking at your pictures 🙂
