FrenchGardenHouse Holiday Home Tour 2013

HolidayTourFrenchGardenHouse1

Welcome to my Holiday Home! I love this season the most don't you? Our holiday decorating here at home is a little behind, as we are in the midst of a kitchen remodel, but it's almost done. Oh! Then the decorating can begin. In the meantime, let's start at our front entry.  In years past, I have decorated our front gate with all natural greens, antique frames, each year I love to think of a different "look" to surprise our guests, and to delight my own senses. This year, my eye was caught by over the top glamour!  Join us for the rest of the front entry, and the DIY for the wreath HERE

Madeline Birthday Party





We love birthdays! I think everyone does. A few weeks ago, we had a fun French MADELINE themed birthday party for Linden. One of our favorite literary little girls, Madeline is a French girl who lives in "an old house in Paris" and has adventures with her school friends and Miss Clavel. Our party was inspired by her, and Linden invited little girls of all ages, as well as their mamas.

See the complete party HERE

Shopping in Europe: Secret Sources: Abaco Antiques & Barbotine in Belgium

Buying Antiques in Europe is so much fun, it's sometimes hard to think of it as work.  {although some of our days start at 7:45am and don't end until 9:30pm when we finally get dinner.} As I mentioned in a previous post, our buying trip to Europe this past August was a combination of family visits and work, with a little vacation time thrown in. John and I learned to drive slower {speed limits in Holland are low}, relax more, speak Dutch and English together in one sentence, and keep our sanity while looking at the most amazing collections of antiques that European dealers presented to us, all in 2~1/2 short weeks. We went on a whirl wind tour of Belgium antique dealers with our friend Toma {more about TheAntiquesDiva coming in a later post!}.
