I love what you have done ~ how absolutley beautiful! Truly magical memories ~ many blessings to you and Josh in the New Year! Rebecca


Hi Alice! Your home looks so beautiful! I love what you've done so far and your photographs as always are wonderful. Happy New Year to you and your family! Hoping to meet up with you in the New Year! Susan


Alice, your new home looks beautiful! What a joy Christmas must have been for you - finally being able to decorate your very own home. Beautiful.

I don't have a new camera yet, but I'm saving my pennies for one. My current Canon is the high-end point and shoot and it has the settings found on more expensive cameras. I just can't change lenses. Any advice on what camera might be best? I so admire your photography.

Happy New Year to you and Josh and Renoir!

All the best for 2011 et love to you from our maison. xo

Love your decorating style. You have a gift for making it all work. What a fabulous chandelier and I adore that paint color. Your Christmas decorations are lovely. I especially like the skates in the wreath.

I hope you, Josh and Renoir have a happy and healthy New Year!

Oh. I am just not sure if I want to slap you or just go ahead and move in. It's settled, I will be spending next December at your house.

Fabulous post with wonderful pics. Who in their right mind would leave a chalkware Jesus on the side of the road??? Everything is just lovely Alice!

Thank you for sharing your home with us a you prepared for CHRISTmas. Your talent for decorating is one many of us envy! Love the French Market sign atop the hutch, and the fireplace mantle is just fabulous, as is the chandelier. Can't wait to watch progress on the rest of your home in 2011.


Happy New Year! I just love all your gorgeous photos and decor. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. And thank you for the link for the ex-voto! I just ran over and bought one for my daughter's hope chest. I tuck away special things each year and the ex-voto seemed fitting because she prayed she'd get the part of Mary in her pre school play and she did! She was so sweet, so I want to write about it and tuck it inside of the box so she can have it for her tree someday. And speaking of trees, yours looks so simple, elegant and pretty. May 2011 be a wonderful year for you! xo natalea


Hello Alice,
I can't tell you how much I adored this post! The Christmas decor in your new home is stunning and I am amazed at that chandelier! Craigslist!!!
I have been enjoying your blog for many months, and finally started my own last month. You have been such an inspiration to me, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your talent and shared joys in 2011.

Your Christmas post is so good I love the pictures and your decorations and of course we knew it would be beautiful. I love the fire place mantel and the way you decorated it. Alice your house is really coming along and it is so your style and the way you wanted to and have fixed it up. Your first Christmas in your new house and hosting the christmas dinner will always be one that you can and will remember.

Merry Christmas all and HAPPY NEW YEARS!
