Barn Hop #92 "Holiday Edition"


Welcome to the Monday Homestead Barn Hop. Today, we're linking our favorite Christmas and Holiday posts to share! Anything you'd like to share that's related to the season... a recipe, a gift idea, a decorated barn, or even a home tour. Write it up, takes some photos, and join the fun! 



Thank you to everyone who has been linking back to Homestead Revival, The Prairie Homestead, or New Life on a Homestead. It's like flying the colors of the homestead community and showing others the way to a great life living closer to the land! 
This week I'm featuring Lily White. Designs and their DIY Garland tutorial. I adore all those natural garlands you see in magazines and on Pinterest, but unless you make them yourself from pine branches locally foraged, they'll cost you an arm and a leg. Now you can make one yourself!



"I got the idea in my head that a fresh garland would look super cute hanging from the background. I had seen them for sale at Kroger, but wanting to keep things frugal, I decided to talk Jared into going for a late night walk with me to collect greens! It was super easy to make."

Thank you, ladies! This really looks like something we can all do!

If you've been featured in the past...

If you've been a featured blogger on the Barn Hop, either today or in the past, we now have a special button for you should you wish to add it to your sidebar stating that you've been a featured blogger! You can find it on my button page by clicking the hen with the blue barn on my sidebar that says "HR Buttons". It's a good idea to link it back to the page where you were featured so your readers can see where you're actually mentioned. (These buttons do not have a code since it needs to be linked to the page you're featured in and it will change from week to week. Just copy the button or drag it to your desktop).

    1. I can't remember the name of the company who made that. I think it started with a "U", and I got it through Thomasville, but it wasn't one of their lamps. It was another manufacturer. Sorry I can't remember!
