Good morning friends! I’m so excited to be sharing a special Christmas blog tour with you today! If you are a regular reader, then you know that I do a post every Friday called French Country Fridays with six other wonderfully talented bloggers. Well today, we are all bringing you our French inspired Christmas tours! Today I’ll be sharing my Christmas entry way with you, but be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see what Christmas inspiration they are all sharing as well!
Hi everyone! I’m joining some blogging friends today for a small blog hop sharing Christmas inspiration. I actually intended to share my Christmas entryway as part of my Front Porch Tour last week, but I hadn’t finished the garland and just couldn’t swing it that early. Then I had several cloudy days which made taking pictures impossible, so it just worked out to share it now.
Today’s post is all about vintage baskets! I have always been a fan of baskets. In fact, when I was in 7th grade I was allowed to “decorate” my room all by myself for the first time, and I chose to hang different sized baskets on the wall over my bed. I don’t quite know where I got the idea, but I do remember loving it! I still love baskets, though now I try to buy vintage baskets whenever I can. There is something so charming about them! They have age and patina that the new ones don’t. And the ones with writing, or buckles or straps? Be still my heart!
Today I’m so excited to be joining two of my favorite blogger friends, Cindy of Rough Luxe Lifestyle and Mary Ann of Classic Casual Home, for one of their monthly Project Design challenges. They’ve invited me and 6 other bloggers and designers to participate in an entry way refresh for spring. I have to admit, as thrilled as I was to be included, I was also a little hesitant. My entry way is not very large, and by far the darkest room in my whole house! But, since this is a design challenge, I decided I would challenge myself to see if I could improve this area!
|The boxwood wreaths are from Target and the fresh garland and poinsettia are from Home Depot. Other boxwood wreath options available here, here, here, and here.|
Thank you again for stopping by! I hope you will take the time to pop over to Amy at Crazy Chic Design next, and then on to the other homes from there. These are some amazing bloggers and I know you’ll find ideas and inspiration from all of them!
I know I’ve said this before (I know!) but I love fall so much! And the last couple of years, I’ve found myself drawn to a more neutral fall decor palette. And since I have to do my Christmas decorating a little earlier this year due to my blog hop coming up, I wanted to touch on fall and Thanksgiving for just a little while longer. At least for this week! After that, I might be forced to give in…
