Hi, Nicki here from The Vintage Farmhouse So excited to be asked by Mikey to guest post. I adore his decor and the blues in his home is actually what inspired me to finally make a decorating decision in my house for the holidays this year!
Christmas decorating is always the hardest for me because there are so many decorating choices to be made and so many different directions you can go with it.
Wow! I can't believe we are two whole Sundays into Advent! This year has flown by so fast! It will be 2013 before we know it!!! I am so thankful that I am finally in a job I LOVE for the first time since I left the Antiques Mall I used to run! So much has happened this year that would have never happened if not for friends made while working there! Anyways....here is a glimpse of the very French Christmas decor in my dining room this year.
I went with a mostly silver and white color scheme this year for Christmas...A tinsel tree, mercury glass, and lots of frosted greenery and even some glass icicles. I didn't decorate as much as I have in years past, and may do some more, but here is my take on Christmas this year! I still have to photograph the rest of the decor in the Dining room....it is very French and Chic!
Wanted to pop in and say Happy Thanksgiving and share these beautiful Gothic chairs now residing in my dining room! They came out of a church not too far from my house, but had been in a friends garage for years....I painted them white and added some linen chair pads...I LOVE them! I also wanted to say--yes, I'm still here....I'm currently re-doing my bedroom, which has been a work in progress for some time...I finally have all the pieces, I just have to find the time to work it all together! Let's just say it is going to be beautiful! Also, don't miss my article in December 2012's Romantic Homes Magazine--in stores NOW through Mid-January!
