christmas ideas

Our house was photographed for Country Home magazine a couple of years ago and was slated for a holiday issue before they closed so our story was passed on to one of their Special Interest Publications Christmas Ideas and is on news stands now. I've included some pictures below.

If you are a Christmas Ideas reader looking for the items pictured in the CI story I regret to tell you most of those items have sold but if you are a hunter and gatherer like me check in with your local independent retailers or look online. I've been getting the most calls about the red bottle brush trees on my mantle and they are made by Bethany Lowe Designs. The wreath above my sideboard is from Katie Runnels and the new glass jars are from the Paris Market (old candy jars are mine and are not for sale). The boxwood garland came from The Magnolia Company and the boxwood topiary came from Arcanum in Savannah. As always I sell loads of vintage ornaments at my shop @home and the wrapping paper & ribbon is from my shop as well.

The magazine neglected to source all the lovely people that loaned me things, put up with my frenzied attitude or made things for me. So I hope you patronize their shops too.

And these are the pictures that did not make the cut. I styled the house for this feature so and can't help but share.....

I just saw your article in Christmas was my favorite article in the entire magazine...when I saw where you are I was more thrilled. I have a home in Savannah, soon as I get there in a week or so I am making a bee line for your store! I'm in my other home right now putting up my white tree with all my PINK vintage ornaments...we have lots in common, can't wait to come see your store! kp
