More Christmas decorating at the A-frame!

As soon as school was out last Tuesday, we headed to our A-frame cottage for some extended time.
From door to door (in good weather), it's a quick  40 minutes!

Have I said how much I love being able to spread out my Christmas collections between two places?

Makes me feel less guilty for continuing to find and rescue vintage Christmas items from estate sales.

I think I love our cottage even more in the cooler months.

 It's quiet.

 It's cozy.   That new furnace makes a HUGE difference!

 I can pretend that we are nestled in the mountains somewhere.

Going for walks in the snow around the lake is extremely peaceful.

While we were out for a morning walk, I spotted this camper.  Wouldn't it be fun to decorate for Christmas?  Chris was very quick to tell me "no more restoration projects" and to get out of the neighbors yard. 

We have so much to be thankful for.  Christmas break is going to be so much fun at the A-frame!

If you didn't sign up, I'm doing a Kim K. no-strings Christmas give-away on this post.  Happy December!

It would be fun to spread out the holiday cheer in a new spot. Enjoy seeing the magic during the holidays at your cottage...enjoy!

So pretty, peaceful and restful looking, something we all need a little of this time of year.

Ha, ha...can't blame Chris for shooing you out of that yard. Something about vintage campers that vintage lovers can't resist. :)

Lynne said...

The A frame looks wonderful . . . So happy you love the wintery days there too. (I agree, that camper would be fun to make Christmasy!)

Lynn said...

Very pretty, it looks like you've found the perfect get-away Kim! A 40 minute drive is perfect too! I'm happy for you-enjoy:@)

The A-frame looks like a slice of Heaven to me! I bet the girls are loving it!
Cute decorations!

I love that you get to get to spend extended time and enjoy ALL seasons! How beautiful. I know you have made the A Frame into a Kim K. dollhouse! Oh, Chris..Chris, Chris, Chris..You know and I know that a little retro RV camper is in your future. Lets not kid ourselves. It's in the stars! "No" means "I'm already thinking about it" hahahaha Maggie

Our family's lake house in Wisconsin just sold :-( But fortunately for me, I can enjoy yours via Blogland! It's all looking so perfect and cozy, Kim!

Oh so fun! Oh yes, I need a second home too so I can collect more stuff! we're running out of room here at the cottage. :D

Every time I mention loving those vintage trailers, my hubs just looks at me like I'm speaking in another language! Ha-ha! At least your husband replies!

Every time we put our cabin lot on the market, we change our minds. My fantasy was for a little cabin of our own. The lot is in the mountains above Mount Pleasant with about a 170' of stream frontage. I pictured sitting on the deck and listening to the sound of the water and spending Christmas or New Years eve there with our kids. I don't know if we will ever build, but your A-frame stories help satisfy my Christmas in the Country fantasy.

Sarah said...

I love Josie playing with her own little A Frame! Cutie pie.

Laura said...

As I was reading along and got to the part about the camper, I was getting excited to see another Kim K. redo. Then I read Chris's response to you, how funny!!! Enjoy your beautiful
A-frame:)

~Damita's Pretty Wrap~ said...

Oh your a frame cottage is the cutest and coziest!! I just love it!! I can feel the coziness through your pictures! Such a great picture of your sweet girls!! And oh my goodness that camper is so cute, it would be perfect decorated!! xo Holly

Pam Kessler said...

That looks like the perfect place to spend the holidays! Hopefully there'll be some good ice skating weather.

Jodee said...

Oh my word! It looks sooo cute all decked out for the holidays! I want to move in for the winter! So cute!

Patti said...

Thank you soooooo much for sharing your sweet posts with us! Your girls are precious, and so happy. Love it!

I'm so jealous you get to decorate TWO homes for Christmas! And yes, I totally agree that the camper would have been so fun to redecorate. That picture even seemed sweet enough to frame as a Christmas photograph. Feeling the love!

Rose Garden Romantic said...
