~ merry white wednesday! ~

merry white wednesday to you!

just a quick little post today ~
been very busy around here
not necessarily with all delightful Christmas decor
but a little banking angst
and dealing with some people
who are a tad too Grinch-like

but
on a 
lighter
whiter 
note

here's a peek 
(just a peek, mind you!)
at some of my 
French-inspired Christmas joy
around the house!


In my loo, white pine boughs replaced the lavender in my fav French tote.




Service berries nestle with cedar sprigs in the kitchen.


Vintage books made to look even older by ripping off the covers and binding with twine - laying in a bed of rustic linens on top of the living room armoire.












I must tell you that
i am really loving peeking into your beautiful homes 
to see your awesome Christmas decor!

your creativity continues to 
inspire me
move me
touch me
and your sweet comments
always
always
bless me.
