Welcome to my vintage farmhouse Christmas laundry room!
I am linking up with the lovely Kim, over at Savvy Southern Style blog, and sharing some photos of some Christmas adornments in our recently remodeled farmhouse laundry room. I call it “vintage” because most of the items used to decorate the space are vintage or up-cycled pieces.
Do stop on by to see what all of the other lovely women are sharing over at Kim’s link party. Kim’s party hosts a variety of Christmas vignettes and stylish mantels decked out in Christmas finery.

We started out the decorating by sending Santa off on his blue vintage tractor. He drove across the fields till he reached his Christmas tree farm. After picking the perfect tree – his trees come with Christmas bulbs…a new hybrid tree, dontchaknow – he tied it down on his tractor and drove it home. He got a lot of pitch on his hands so he will be using the SKAT soap to wash off. Yea, I know what y’all are thinkin’.
Decorating our home this year was done pretty simply. I still need to add the fresh Cedar garlands and then I will be all done. I only brought out about 1/16th of my Christmas decor. Less is more, that is what my son said – which made me quite happy to hear! So let me share with you the laundry room….
My favorite 1930’s stitched picture hangs on the wall next to a corner shelf. Sweet little cottages are surrounded with snowflakes and snow…so cozy! Clipped on the shelf is an old Christmas card a friend bought for me. It matches the stitched cottage piece perfectly…she has such an eye for detail.
The shelving above the washer and dryer were decorated simply with bottle brush trees, a mica star and a glitter Santa.
Newer bottle brush trees fill old Scottish and English crocks and ….
…a 1931 bowling trophy. I had the trophy for sale in my space at the antique mall, however I brought it home because it is a really great old piece. (I think I am going to keep it….) Tip: to keep the trees from falling inside the vessels, I wadded up some brown paper bags and stuff them inside the crocks and trophy. Just sit the trees on top of the paper and there you have it. If they get a little wonky on you, just add a little glue to the base of the tree or even some double-sided tape to make it stand up straight.
Old postal scales allow a spot for the mica star to sit on top as a glitter Santa stands almost at a salute!
It’s raining cats and dogs here right now, so the photos aren’t as good as if the sun were out, but that is ok. We need the rain!
So that is it for now! I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Drive on over to Kim’s now and be ready to be holiday inspired!
