Sneak Peeks of the Christmas Great Room and an Announcement

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been working on the Great Room at the Berry Patch House.

Christmas Master Bedroom at Berry Patch

Hello Dear Readers!

Today I am presenting the Christmas Master Bedroom at Berry Patch.

I fully intended to keep it simple; however, you know me . . .

it just wasn’t a Christmas bedroom without a tree!

So I went to the “Christmas storage room” and took out one of my fav trees,

the Clifton Pine from Tree Classics.   As I was carting it to the room,

I had an epiphany as I passed by something in the breakfast room corner.

The Berry Patch House Christmas Porch

I love “firsts” don’t you?

Well I have a first for you today!

The Berry Patch House has a wonderful porch, perfect for decorating for the seasons.

Only one negative though ….. no electrical outlets on the porch,

so I will have to add some sparkle in other ways!

Come on in and welcome to the Berry Patch House Christmas Porch.

Our First Christmas Trees at the Berry Patch House

Hello Dear Friends,

I love Christmas and all of the wonderful things that make up the most joyful season of all.

Knowing that our time at the Berry Patch House is temporary and I was not quite certain

if we were going to set up any large trees this year. Maybe just a table top tree with

visions of how I will display and decorate trees in our future home.

However, it’s not me to put a tree on a table and call it a day!

So today, I bring you Our First Christmas Trees at the Berry Patch House.

We are celebrating with beautiful trees from the wonderful Tree Classics

and participating in their fabulous Home For the Holidays Tour.

I am joining fellow bloggers with 12 Days of amazing Christmas tree inspiration.

Links to the tour are below.

Also the complete product list links will be below too!

I did something different this year and love it.

I have done this in the past and thought why not do it again

as I have the perfect trees!

I Just Couldn’t Wait to Tell You

Hello Dear Readers!

Recently, the wonderful Loi of Tone On Tone published a post

about his most gorgeous shop in Bethesda, Maryland, Tone On Tone.

A shop that he has owned for 15 years and he had made the difficult

decision to close his shop and concentrate more on his interior design business.

I was there not too long ago and as always fell in love with all of his

beautiful antiques . . . from the furniture, to the clocks, to the mirrors,

and the gorgeous accessories. Now, he has placed his beautiful items on sale.

There was one item in particular that I fell in love with.

I will show you some photos that I took (with my iPhone) when I was there last

and maybe you can guess which piece is coming home with me.

A Birthday gift from my hubby to cover the next 10 years … or more!

Let’s start with this amazing French circa 1750 marriage/wedding armoire.

Christmas Tree Inspiration

Yes,  we are not even close to Thanksgiving; however, now is the time

when I have to start the Christmas tree decorating process and planning.

Did you know that I absolutely love decorating Christmas trees?

It was not uncommon for me to have a tree in every room in the past

when I had a lot more time on my hands.

However, I still come close and last year I decorated many, 

so I thought that I would take you down memory lane

for some Christmas tree inspiration.

Harvest Celebration – Floral Friday

Hello Dear Readers!

Today is the first Friday of the month and that means it is Floral Friday!

Wow did the month of October fly by!!

Today I am joining my sweet and talented friends of Floral Friday,

Lidy, Mary and Pam presenting our creations of a Harvest Celebration.

Their links are at the end of the post under their respective beautiful image.

A tremendous amount of beautiful floral inspiration is here for you today

to enjoy and hopefully help you create one of your own!

I am a bit of an out of the box type of person, so I thought I would use

some colors that I used last Fall….lavenders and plum.
