Joyful wishes to you~

Sharing Rachel's holiday home with you today~ 
Glittered silhouettes of my grandsons hang on the tree; and more special touches - like their photo 'framed' in the jeweled wreath
 Canvas bag with French graphic hung in the entry, along with their stockings~
 Little chalkboard clips identified the stockings~

 Easy, make you stop and look touches: French botanical print on the wall inside the wreath
 The 'clipboard' reflected in the mirror holds their holiday greetings - easy to browse~
 The brightest color used? Simple aqua tapers~
 Each cabinet top was layered with beautiful finds~
Wreath it - love~
 Glittery garlands in jars
 Botanical everywhere - note the tin bird clip!
 Special little packages - while wrapping, she remembered having an earring that was just perfect~
 This package is wrapped in a colorful magazine page!
 Comfortably entertained; she makes it all seem so easy.....

 More simple touches: two glittered birds held a baker's twine garland across the buffet table. (Note the slight tear in the paper cloth - behind the bird?  Two little boys....)
 Who doesn't like a swizzle stick - fun!
Cupcakes baked right in the liners, glaze drizzled on, top with crushed candy cane.  Who likes chocolate and peppermint?
 A nice deep kitchen sill holds a lantern frame
 Vintage postcard inside a glass lamp base
 Paperwhites in the dining room window
 Ooh - Rachel always gives me ideas.  Gray chalkboard paint!  Expect to see it at the shop soon~
 'Simple' - tucked everywhere
Wishing you calm, joyful days this season.  As for me, I'm 'back in the saddle' today - the Atelier is open today through Saturday (Th-Fr-Sa, December 27-28-29 - we're probably closing early on Sat the 29th. ~TERESA

Oh Teresa, I feel like I want to do Christmas all over again after seeing your pictures! Tell Rachel she's a true artist. All the best for 2013! BarbaraDoone xo
