A Botanic Bleu Christmas

This past weekend I went to visit my friend Judith’s home as she was hosting her annual French Country Christmas Event.

Even with overcast skies her garden was completely enchanting as I meandered down a brick path behind her house.

My destination was this wonderful garden conservatory.

While some might call it a “she shed” the beautiful old doors and special touches elevate it to so much more.

Inside more enchantment and gloriousness awaits.

The good news is that her event will continue for another two weeks. I’ll be sharing the treasures I found there in upcoming Christmas décor posts. You won’t want to miss it!judith

I had planned on going but a truck stuck in the mud caused a detour. I hope to make it this Saturday.

I am SO ready to hop a plane for Texas! This is just my thing -- I loved every single item in every photo in the entire post! Oh, Laura! Did you go a little crazy? I would have!

Thank you for the tour. I so wanted to drive up for the day, but it didn't work with other commitments this year. It all looks beautiful. What treasure did you take home?

I'd like to hop the plane too but since I can't I'll just have to be inspired to create more and more decorations for a house that's too full already! Especially love the truck with the white tree on top!

Oh I do wish I could go! I spy many wonderful things!

Laura,
Thank you, dear friend, for the beautiful post about my French Country Christmas Event. Your photos are stunning.

I can't wait to see how you use your purchases at your house. I know everything will be gorgeous.

Joyeux Noel,
