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!

Beautiful images. Love the wreathes and the garland wrapped around the staircase.

It's never too early for Christmas! Thanks for sharing, Teresa!

BREATHTAKING! I cannot wait to get my issue. Cannot imagine it being any prettier Teresa. Thanks for your kind email....hoping everyone stays safe. Thanks for some scrumptious eye candy this morning!

Oh my goodness... Christmas splendor, indeed! Both homes are as beautiful as they are different. So inspired to do something different this year! Thanks for sharing on this rainy, windy Monday.

Our friends are definitely in our thoughts today. I hope everyone weathers the storm safely.

Can't wait to pick up this issue of Veranda. I'm not quite ready to start thinking about Christmas yet, but it's probably never early to start gathering inspiration! Happy Monday, Teresa! XO

I agree with Wendi. It is never too early for Christmas images. I have been checking the mail every day waiting for my issue. I am so in the mood to start decorating!

Have a great week.

Teresa, the first images are stunning! I cant believe were looking at Christmas images.

I melted right with you, Teresa. Was so excited when I got the issue with such a stunning Christmas!

I was delighted when I received my Veranda in the mail. Loved the Xmas images. I agree about Christmas to early but for those of us that are working on holiday showhouses we need inspiration as early as we can get it!

Barbara Jordan Dettweiler said...

Wow! Two stunners in a row! I loved the frosted pinecones in the first house, but I wonder how she keeps the limes in the wreaths and garlands looking fresh? Very nice looks in both cases.

These two homes are absolutely gorgeous and so different from one another. I love them both Teresa!! I guess will have to think about Christmas soon :)

It's never too early for Christmas lovelies!! This was a fabulous post…I'm just a little concerned…do we really think that much alike all of the time!?! LOL! This post has been ready for days and then I saw yours! No matter…I changed it up a bit…but I sure am glad we love the same things!!! Hope you are doing well and that you are loving this cooler weather! I'm trying too!
