The Spirit Of Christmas

Christmas decorating has always been a favorite thing of mine to do, and I am finding that it gets a little more simple each year. That is largely a by-product of having owned a shop where the decor had to be over the top, so decorating at home gradually took a back seat. Though I no longer have the shop to decorate, I am enjoying keeping things simple and stick to a mostly white palette. Bits of color can be found here and there in vintage mercury glass ornaments and aged red linen heart ornaments made by a crafter in Indiana that was a previous vendor for my shop. I am also loving the glittery pine cones I found this year at Target and the silver trees from French Nest. I hope you will sit back with a cup of tea and enjoy the tour and the lovely sounds of Christmas.

Merry Christmas To All!

French Nest

The first time I walked into the shop called French Nest, I thought I was back at the Marburger Farms show in Texas. This charming little slice of heaven is so reminiscent of some of my favorite booths there that it literally transported me back to the show. Thankfully this shop is local and I can haunt it at will. Owned by Marsha Stokes and Edwina Carlisle, it is a gorgeous mix of all that is vintage and romantic with a touch of rust and crust that I truly adore. I do hope you will drop by and say hello the next time you are in College Park and tell them Sweet Pea says hello. Enjoy the pics...
