I wanted to share a few images with you of our French Farmhouse Christmas Collection.
Today we are giving away a 500.00 gift card to our online shop.

One of my favorite ways to display a tree is in a crate.
Here I placed the tree in a vintage French Champagne crate available in our shop.
I filled the crate with ornaments I purchased years ago from Anthropologie


This year I decided to paint my floors white....
I love how they turned out.  
I painted them using Farrow and Ball's All White.
The throw is from Modern Wool.






























































Wreath is from Wintersteen Farms


I went to the stables to shoot Wintersteen Farms wreaths and garland.
