Noël has arrived
I’ve just finished the big work project that has been keeping me away from this space and I’m so glad! I’ve missed being here but I worked hard an keeping my head down and my fingers flying across the keyboard to get to the light at the end of the tunnel before the holidays. And they are arriving (as always, non?) so quickly!
I got my wish for the weekend and we have our sweet little sapin de Noël. Here it is just after we got everything on an the little candles lit. We love it so much. I really wanted to do a considered color palette for decorations this year and I convinced R. to stick to the whites, greens, metallics, and natural tones from our ornaments and we both love the simplicity of it. Some red sneaked in in the form of absolute favorite pieces but I don’t mind at all. Oh! And that great weathered terra cotta pot we used as a base? I grabbed at off the sidewalk just the weekend before when we were walking home from dinner one night. I was so happy to get it in the light and see how beautiful it was! Perfect and rustic.
So here’s a little peek into the holiday at our home this year.
This little ceramic kitten was made in Acoma and is one of the treasures we brought back from our honeymoon earlier in the year. We found it at Susan’s Christmas Shop in Santa Fe which is a great little shop.
Off to run around in the cold Paris drizzle. I’m glad to be back. Have a wonderful weekend!
