The snow has finally arrived here in Vermont and winter is truly upon us for the next 4 months.  Living in Vermont, we strongly embrace winters with all its white blankets of snow, cozy fires, hot toddy’s, bluebird days skiing, snowshoeing, skating, and walking our Bernese Mountain Dog, Ella! This year I really want to focus on a simple Christmas decor style with more winter charms that could last way past Christmas.  I have started with my builtins in our living room.  And I hope this post will bring you some fun simple Christmas decor ideas for your bookshelves.

I found these amber bottles and a vintage Abraham Lincoln picture while antiquing.  Did you know that the Lincoln family has a home here in our town of Vermont called Hildene?  It is a beautiful historical site where you can walk the gardens, working farm, cross-country ski, etc…

Builtins styled for the holidays with antique finds.

I just love this white and red farmhouse ribbon available on Amazon.  The simplicity of it is just what I was looking for!
