Archives for the month of: December, 2012

Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality is having a link party today so I thought I would share a vignette we did for clients earlier this month. As some of you saw when I posted  the sneak peek I had just had my decorative painter paint a tone on tone forest scene on their walls.

I decided to stay with that theme for the Christmas decor.

After delivering their new French chest I discovered these happy reindeer who looked like they would love to be nibbling grass under the trees on the wall so they found a home as the centerpiece of the vignette.

Don’t you love the organic feel of their driftwood forms?

Their “bed” was made of fresh Frazier Fir branches mixed with pine cones,pine boughs and snow. That stuff is hard to come by in Alabama these days but we forced a White Christmas with a lot of cotton and little spray stuff. 🙂

Next, I took some blocks of foam, cut them into small squares and covered them with pieces of left-over fabrics and ribbons to make small gifts for a pop of color.

Simple but elegant just like I like it.

So how’s all that cooking, shopping and …… coming along? I am reminding myself to “rejoice with great joy” over The Star as the song says and not get overwhelmed by the business.

Have a cup of eggnog and enjoy your night!


The Writer and I had so much fun at the photo shoot with Josh Moates, Layla and Kevin Palmer and Marilyn Heard. What a fabulous team. I love it when you are working your fanny off but it feels like fun.  To read all about the shoot go to The Lettered Cottage.

I gave up on a lot of picture taking in order to simply finish on time but I think all trees, bows, garlands, tables etc. are up…… except for mine. Alas. LOL

Note those two giant trees happily soaking in the background. Oh yeah, Baby.

Cindy Elf had it loaded to the gills with fresh greenery. I am pretty much a purist in that regard.

Color they scream. What color is it? All soft blues, whites, bronze with tiny pops of red, yellow and orange on the birds that make their nests in the tree.
