French Shabby Christmas decorations



Hello sweet friends!

I've been absent for some time but I'm back now!
So busy, always it seems.

I started to decorate for the holiday and thought I would share it with you.

My mantle.
Always a difficult place to arrange items due to it's odd size.

I still love my shabby angel wings that I got last year.





I decided to put my christmas tree in this vintage french flower drying rack. I added a vintage grain sack as well.



I made a faux wreath out of garland I wasn't using and added lights.
I nailed it up on my chippy white vintage door.





The girls stockings are hung along with my most favorite christmas girl.
I just love her for some reason.



Homemade ornaments from my favorite girl, Amy of Whitewash Boutique on Etsy.
She is also at The Barn in Castle Rock, CO....my go to place for French Shabby.
I am awaiting more ornaments from her in the mail, I can't wait to see them!



Also made by Amy.



One of most favorite sayings....




My sitting room.




White tree decked out in shabby french goodness.



Burlap wrapped white tree.




Merry Christmas!

I love this time of year.

  6. Love all the white Christmas decorations! I am trying to slowly weed out all the reds and bring in all shabby whites and silvers for Christmas, it's so much more peaceful. I love the way your home looks. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving :)
