A Little French Christmas....

                                 Evergreen & cedar.......
                                 vintage cutting boards...a tiny tree...
                                    pinecones...and paper whites....these are the things that say Christmas to me.....
                            perfect imperfection....
                             a soft and romantic look.....does it still say Christmas.....
                                Yes..it just says it quietly...like a soft cloth dusting the sill of an old church window....while the snow falls outside and all feels right in the world.....many thanks for taking the time to stop by...I so love your notes!  x0x0

It is funny, this year I decided to go with what I'm calling a more natural look and I love it. It felt simple to me compared to all the bling I often use. Then, I come visit you and I see just how lovely simple can be. Looking around the room, mine doesn't seem quite as streamlined as it did before I visited you. You home as always is lovely and peaceful.

So quiet and lovely, the statue, the white pitcher, the shelves, the greenery, everything. Very pretty.
Hugs, Cindy

Magazine?.....
Your style speaks out to me, like the pages of Jeanne d' Arc magazine. I would move into your home with its rustic charm in a minute, of course you have to leave the accessories and furniture behind :)

I was in the mist of finishing my tree when I visited your Nordic - French appeal when I at that moment said to myself this is so brocante chic, and so Nordic at the same time :)
You must come back over to now see my new post on Joyeux Noël -God nul

Chrissy, your home looks heavenly! I adore all the peaceful JDL-inspired details. The simple greenery really stand out. The chandelier on the rustic stool is a perfect mix!
