Savvy City Farmer Christmas

A warm inviting home- notice the chandelier over the stairs- so adorable!

Birch logs and greenery in a vintage cabinet by the front door.

Tablescape of greenery and garden elements.

A display on the side porch- cute vintage whisk brooms adorn a tree for the holidays.

I loved this- antlers fit perfectly into the boxwood wreath.

so many inspirational touches in this kitchen.
The vintage loving cup- a 1928 Ice Derby trophy from Lake Forest.

Love this menu board attached to the cabinet door.

Joy removed her cabinet doors to have easy access to her dinnerware.

Glittered vintage soft balls under glass.

clever idea- toile scene inserted in the panels on an old cabinet.
Cute filing drawers with an awesome new paint finish by Joy.

Chandelier embellished with vintage garland and gold Italian fragments.

Sometimes you are charmed and inspired beyond belief- as was the case for me when I visited Savvy City Farmer - Joy's home on Thursday night. The detail that she embellished upon her vintage home was charming, from the menu on the cabinet doors, to the warm grey color on the walls. I can see why this home was featured in Romantic Prairie Style and in a recent issue of Jeanne D'Arc Living. Joy had a Christmas gathering and had some vintage items for sale. You can be sure that the 1928 Lake Forest loving cup went home with me! I enjoyed the evening and was very happy with my new treasures that I purchased that evening.
