White Wednesday with Nordic Style

I thought I'd take a break from the shop.... thinking you might be a little bored with all the whites I've been showing you in the last month. Believe it or not there is actually some color in the store.

With the news about Jeanne d'Arc Living no longer being able to ship products to the US until they can straighten out the customs problem it got me thinking that I'd really never showed much of the pictures they email me to show on my site. I feel so badly for the gals that had been selling their merchandise that can no longer get them but I'm sure things will work out in the end. I'm still debating ordering the magazine myself at the higher price. There's still time to decide!

Many of you have never seen the magazine let alone the Christmas issue. I was surprised how much Black and White images there was. You know how much I love Black and White images. Seeing them in this magazine got me thinking of doing more of them for Black and White Sunday that Anne Marie hosts. I'm afraid that by the time I get around to it Christmas will be over.:)))
Actually in a few more hours Wednesday will be over......
 Who says you have to have a lot of decorations on a tree or that it has to be the perfect shape.

 These snowflakes makes me wish I had done this on the windows. I might still try it.

Nothing beats the simplicity of pinecones and moss and a few well placed tealights.

Reminds me that I need to get some stocking stuffers....wonder if a newspaper and a few winterberries would be appreciated???

Hope you all get a chance to visit our hostess Kathleen at Faded Charm and go see all the other participants. You won't be disappointed!

Until we see each other again!
Enjoy the season!

Hi Carole! Great job of pulling the pictures pretty! I can't bare not to have the magazine for myself so I am going to order at least 1 case...figures they'd get us hooked and then jack the price up...I do love their sytle though, that's for sure!

Hi Carole, My next door neighbor got an issue of the Christmas JdA and leet me have a look. She knows how much I fell in love with the one I won at Tracey's. It is beautiful. These images you have shared are amazing and the very reason I love the publication. I'm just not sure I can justify the new cost, so I will be having a look at Sarah's when she gets them. It's so funny because she was hooked the minute she perused the issue I won.
Thank you for always having so much beauty to share.
