Wintry Christmas Scenery

Hello Again From The French Hen's Nest, and Merry Christmas!    

  We've had a lot of snow and ice lately, which is beautiful, but treacherous.  As I was on my way to La Bella Luce to pick up my chandelier I snapped a few photos of the lovely scenery.  The trees were heavy with snow and the fields are beautiful with a light blanket of snow.  And as usual the ladies at La Bella Luce had the store decorated beautifully.  So many trees, so many beautiful ideas.  I took a few pictures of the store as well, and I'm sharing those with you.

  Hope that all of you are enjoying this beautiful season of joy, and sharing with those that have a little less joy right now.   Let's keep them in our hearts and prayers.   I believe that people are just a little kinder, and more thoughtful during the Christmas season.  Let's keep it going....

  The French Hens wish you much joy, and a very Merry Christmas.

Isn't this candlelier lovely?

Isn't this dough bowl decorated beautifully

   What a peaceful, beautiful drive through the country.  Only God can paint a picture this lovely.  Hope that you have enjoyed the drive, and the lovely La Bella Luce in Historic Clifton, Va.  Once again, we would like to wish you Happy Holidays, and  a very Merry Christmas.

Till Nest Time,

Jeannie and Linda
