La Bella Luce Merry Christmas

Historic Clifton, Va

Hello Again from The French Hen's Nest,

  I visited one of my favorite stores the other day, La Bella Luce, we have featured them in the past.  The store is owned and operated by military wives.  The owner is currently living in Italy, and buys the beautiful pieces you see in the store.  Well, I was there to take pictures of their Christmas Decorations, and they had just finished decorating, so we got there just in time.  My granddaughter, Em, went with me, and she was very inspired by what she saw.  Maybe she has the design bug, wouldn't that be great?  Anyway, here are the pictures I took, and hope that you enjoy them.

          A Welcoming Front Door (made with pine cones)

                                 The front porch with many old fashioned elements.

I love that huge bread bowl

Great idea for cloches

Any child would love this room, I do

Christmas tree in childs room

Aren't these cute?


    The Tea Cup Tree - what a great idea.  Your guests could leave
                                     with a tea cup and tea.

     Teacups have tea bags in them

     The Bathtub tree?

Would love to find these in my bathtub


Grain Sack pillows and more 

Felt Christmas trees

  Aren't these angels are beautiful

Silver pine cones and mercury glass

Guess he survived  Thanksgiving

Gorgeous Chandelier

Another lovely painting

A buffet full of good things to inspire

Well I think I have a few good ideas to use in my decorating.  Hope you do as well.

Till Next Time,
Happy Decorating
