2019 Holiday Housewalk


I have been fortunate enough to be a part of Jen Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk almost as long as I have been blogging. It is the sweetest honor to be asked again to share our home along with so many incredible design and DIY bloggers! I am an artist, business owner and homeschool mom so I am usually capturing our home with my phone. I dusted off the real camera for this post and I can’t wait to check out all of the homes right along with you!





If you are coming from Kelly’s beautiful blog I know that you are already inspired! Thank you for stopping by and seeing some of our home dressed up for Christmas.



Home is where I love, gather others, use my creativity, rest, get grounded, dream up new ideas, worship, laugh, cry, prepare, recover, and find sanctuary.

If you are reading this right now I can bet that home is a part of your love language too. Welcome! I am so thrilled you are here!



I prefer simpler decorations for the holidays and always choose natural elements when available.

We live on seven acres and there is never a shortage of feathers, branches, flowers, pinecones and more. Nature is always where I search first for inspiration.

|To make your own dried orange garland cut thin slices of orange, lay them on a baking sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 2-3 hours|

|The Art Studio|

This is a separate building from the house.

This is where I create art, film online art classes, host live workshops, where our kids make art, where we watch movies with friends, and where we often gather big groups of friends.

Most of the studio is wonderfully messy with ongoing projects but this corner was ready for photos:-)

    Your Christmas tree, hands down! I appreciate that bloggers have to decorate early, but I find zero charm in artificial trees! I can imagine the smell wafting through your home with all the fresh greenery! Merry Christmas!

      Thank you! Kelly laughed because we bought 6 small wispy trees this year for throughout the house and one in the studio. I love them though and the house smells amazing.

  4. Shannon Fox

    I absolutely love your homes entire aesthetic and feel! It kinda makes me want to throw out everything I own. hahaha
    It’s so different from mine, yet I adore it… so natural, & it has a raw, organic vibe. It looks beautiful for the holiday season!
    Wishing you a happy Christmastime.

    Jeanne your house is always a favorite! I especially love your Charlie Brown tree with a lone string of lights and the French linen wrapped gifts! Beautiful!

  6. Lynda Byrnes

    Your home is so incredibly beautiful Jeanne- can I ask you how you secured the candle tapers in the dough bowl arrangement? I’d love to go do
    Something like that in my grandmothers old wooden chopping bowl. Thank you!!

  7. Danielle Driscoll

    Jeanne, your home speaks volumes about your heart and your family. I love the simple beauty of every single room. Love all you do – your art, your courses, and how you express living creatively. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! x

  8. Lauren

    I’m not just saying this… FAVORITE TOUR THIS YEAR! Seriously. I hygge-geeked out over your home just now, Jeanne. It’s so effortless and simple and natural and yet I just kept thinking, “I could never pull this off in a million years.” Just beautiful. Hope you have a lovely Christmas season!

  9. Kim

    Your house is amazing. I have a couple of questions, what are the pieces that are hanging in your dining room. With the peg like things, love it. And the wooden rack you have in your kitchen, would you mind sharing where that came from. Your whole house is so warm and inviting.

  10. Missy B

    Beautiful and airy and scented with Christmasy mountain greens – love it! This might sound strange, but one of my favorite things about winter is the light is so different, and I love how you’ve captured it… particularly in the last studio picture ;).

  11. Destiny Alfonso

    I could just stare at these pictures all day! What a beautiful tour! Looks so cozy and warm and like a place I want to come home to each day! SO many beautiful simple elements!!
    Thanks for sharing with us!!
