Merry Christmas

This scene (via Martha Stewart) is one of my favorite holiday images. The white and green color palette is my favorite; the architecture of the door, the delicate pattern on the panes of the sidelights, transom windows, and door surround also has great appeal. I just noticed the little candles in the windows, which was one of my favorite holiday traditions growing up. It's a peaceful scene, and on the day before Christmas I appreciate the peacefulness that is a result of a 'to-do' list that is done, and the wonderful anticipation that is in the air.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas! I truly appreciate each and every one of you, and thank you for your comments and emails. I will be back next week with my traditional year end posts!

  1. That is a BEAUTIFUL front entryway. And to use all greens with that creamy white made it perfect!

    To enter some front doors is like going on a trek through the woods to a rarely used entrance. Not welcoming at all. (and as a result - the garage door is often used - how welcoming is THAT?)

    Have a Merry Christmas!!!

    And thanks for the expeditious delivery of the framed intaglios I recently purchased. They are proudly hanging on the wall in our upstairs hallway. I hope to post a pic on the blog very soon.
