To my friends on the east coast and inland, my thoughts and prayers are with you this week.  Be safe.


Ok, seriously, I know that it is too early to start with the Christmas images, but I melted when I saw these two rooms in this issue of Veranda.  It is a must read for this season!

The French- born owner of this Connecticut home loves the patina of old furnishings and brings in decorations from nature during Christmas.  ENJOY!!

The Bedford, New York country home of Stephen Sills is decorated in silver, gold, and bronze.  ENJOY!

I hope that you enjoyed these two homes as much as I did.  I love Christmas, and it is taking all that I have not to share daily!  I have a lot in store for you!
