Tea With My Sister

Hello again from the French Hen's Nest,

  My sister will be arriving soon, and it's so chilly outside, thought I would make a pot of tea.  As luck would have it,  my sister and I enjoy the same tea, Earl Grey.  So I have prepared the tea, (decaf of course) and some tea cakes as my grandmother use to call them, (short bread cookies) for us to enjoy.

A Decorium Christmas

Hello Again from the French Hen's Nest,

  Once again I visited Decorium, a beautiful store in Alexandria, Va.  I love the way they decorate their store, especially the way they decorate the  store front for Christmas.  The owners are decorators, and you can see that in the details.  Hope you enjoy your visit.

Decorating Options

Hello Again from The French Hen's Nest,

  I don't know about you, but I decorate, redecorate, and then decide which I like best.   And then I may add more.  I can only describe it as a decorating frenzy.  I have so many ideas, they have to be narrowed down.  I'm sure that you know what I mean.  So below are a few pictures of decorative objects,  decorated differently for Christmas.

Christmas Bedroom for Em

Hello Again from The French Hen's Nest

  I've been decorating my granddaughter's bedroom for Christmas.  When we visited  La Bella Luce, the store featured in La Bella Luce Christmas, she expressed an interest in decorating her bedroom.  So I got right to it.  I think I'm finished, but I'll let you be the judge.

Angel Wings on My Pillow

Hello again from The French Hen's Nest

   As I was scrolling through the parties last week, I found a post that had a poinsettia pillow, which was so pretty. It was made with boiled wool.  I have tried to find the blog, but I can't, and of course I can't remember the name.  As I scrolled further down, I found a pillow with angel wings. The wings were made of felt, and it looked so pretty, that I was inspired to make my own Christmas pillow with angel wings.   

First, I had to make a run to the craft store for supplies.  I went to AC Moores, found the felt, bought a little glue and was ready to go.  I used quick stick felt and decided that I would add something more to mine, maybe feathers.
