Winters Calm Nordic Holiday

"All Photos of BurlapLuxe home"

A home filled with winter, and seasonal inspiration.

 Where mirrors will reflect winters calm.
Candles a glow in the beauty of tarnish.

Pewter filled with what it brings.
 Greenery that embellishes Nordic style.
A grey tin "C" for Callaway Christmas
 A muse of inspiration
 Monterey Bay Heather a top our Nordic grey side table.

Wild with anticipation a birds intimate space that was surrounded by winter trees. 
I scatter seeds, and have them visit me...
 in thankfulness for songs they sing when winter ends.
 Planting mini trees of cypress in tea cups make for holiday beauty.

6 mattelasse white as winter left in my peaceful etsy,
and 6 Nordic grey canvas duck you will find them on my sidebar.
Inspiring hands involved with traditions.

Bonjour ma chère amie!

Ce matin, je me trouve ici, chez toi et tes décorations qui vraiment m'inspirent. J'étais si occupée de mes affairs d'Etsy (c'est bon!) que je n'ai même pas le temps de faire le menage! Alors tes idées me disent quelque chose et c'est L'HEURE DE sortir mes oiseaux gris, le sapin en blanc et commencer la fête!!! GROSSES BISES, Anita
