The homeowner of Rustic Meadow Homes is big on holidays with the fall season swimming quickly into Christmas. Here's the door to the home in all its fall splendor, but Santa appears to be on his way as the indoor is already bedecked with a floor-to-ceiling tree, stockings hung up on the mantle and Christmas trimmings everywhere.

Don't all farm tours start in the kitchen? And end there, too?

It looks like someone's about to make some sugar cookies. You'll see that even the kitchen towels match the rest of the decor, straight through to the master bedroom, which sports the same checkered pattern.
A must-have for Christmas time. Even if they don't get consumed, candy canes are great decoration, looking spirited in a jar and easy to hang up on a tree.
Don't forget, candles are also Christmas-y, even when propped up in glass bottles.
Nothing says home like a busy kitchen. Notice the plates have comical scrawl -- sporting words like "yumm" and "nibble."
You can't forget these. Remember, the big guy is coming!
Just a few elegant touches for the holidays in the living room. This space might be crowded on Christmas morning, so it's best to save a little room for Santa to leave all those presents ...
This tree speaks for itself ... all ready for Christmas day.
The master bedroom has its own tree -- in the foreground on the right.
The holiday motif is alive and well in the master bedroom. "A Merry Christmas to all ... and to all a Good Night."
