Joyeux Noël

My Christmas decorating this year is turning out to be a little bit country...French Country that is...

I have my beautiful toile stockings that Rhonda from Farmhouse Style made for me last year.


One of my favorite ornaments...this sweet blown glass rooster...

and some fresh holly on my dining chandelier...Well I am not so sure that the holly is French country, but it just sort of has that look, don't you think?


I am even doing a French country table setting for a dinner party I am having this season - to see that and read my newest Home Goods post, click here.

Welcome Home,
Penny

Your house is beginning to look very festive. Love the mantel. Mimi

Everything looks great...the good thing about French Country is that it accepts so many different things. I love the use of the holly on your chandy...i will use that same idea a little closer to Christmas..
I am like Stacey..I'd love to see whole room shots sometime....:O)

the rooster is my absolute favorite...I don't know when I began to love chickens and roosters, but suddenly I have them everywhere...cept for the tree...don't think I'd trust Hound with a blown glass Rooster! Everything looks so great, Penny!
