And so it begins...And Another White Wednesday

Photo from country living

I have just gotten home from the store...


We began the  task of setting up for ...
 The Christmas Open House!

We have started in what just might be my favorite area...
          The French Cottage

The room itself has been divided into two very different areas...

The boudior...(Think Fifi in Paris)

pine cone hill bedding

and the Nordic/French Kitchen...

 (Think freshly fallen snow, Skis and Snowflakes)

this plate is one that I found on one of my treasure hunts...

 It was the inspiration for this vignette.. .kind of.

well...I can't share much more than this ...
just know ...
so far...

It's really wonderful!  
For those of you who shop our store...
Think completely different than we have EVER done before!

For those of you who can't make it...
I will be revealing a different area of the store each week on
beginning the week after Open House! (November 7&8)

Can't wait!

For more delicious white wonderments...
Please head over to Faded Charm where I assure you
Kathleen has put together a wonderful selection of goodies to share with you...

Hope each of you have a Wonderful Week!
