l Joyeux Noel l
*

Joyeux Noel mon Ami...

My little French girl bust! Many of my friends remember when I found my little French girl. I found her at an Antique Flea Market this past summer. I was on a mission to find one...and there she was...in all of her beauty! Hehe! I have to say a special thank you to my friend Vanna for giving me the bug....the moment I seen Vanna's pretty "Frenchy" busts....I just knew that I just had to have one (or two)!!!

My friend Vanna just recently started her own blog and it's fabulous!!! It's called "Delusions of Grandeur" ...you just have to go and see Vanna's beauties!!!


llllllll


During the Christmas renovations...my French girl was moved to the living room. She found herself right at home on this table sitting in front of the window. Do you see her smiling? I think she's quite happy here in her new spot! I added some greenery, ribbons, ornaments, and a candle for a table piece. Did you see the little gold letters that spell out the word "LOVE"....they have the most precious little cherubs perched on them! Below the table on top of the hat boxes...I placed a silver cake plate filled with gold candles and ornaments...oh yes, and a few pearls! Psssst....I really liked how this photo turned out....it was snowing at the time and the lighting was really pretty!!!






Well my friends....there you have it! Just a little more of my Christmas decor. I really haven't done as much decorating this year....it's going to be a quiet Christmas at our house! I didn't even put up a tree, but I did put out just a few things. I sure have enjoyed all of my fellow blogger's Christmasy homes though....they are all so beautiful!!!

Love ya'll,
Chari

Chari- You always have such a classy touch to your home! French Girl is lovely and does look quite content! I love the huge tassel from your lamp shade- I have a few tassel and never can quite get the feel for what to do with them beside hanging them from a knob! I think I will have to borrow your idea!

Any snow your way today? Think Sunday is the day we are supposed to get a dumping-

She is a beauty! I see the snow in your window - more is on the way tomorrow, I guess. Does it seem like we are getting snow earlier than usual? May be we will have an early Spring. Merry Christmas! Sally
