Holiday Window Shopping

When I am wanting inspiration for styling a room I often turn to magazines, websites, and online catalogs. I am so glad that I can "window" shop from the comfort of my own chair! 

Here are some items I spotted...

I found  a lot of inspiration from One King's Lane the last time I visited their website. (I have NO affiliation with One King's Lane. I just like to window shop their offerings.)

One King's Lane
I found instant inspiration when I saw this tureen. I have a white tureen so the ornament laden tureen above really spoke to me. I am going to do this. Remind me and I will show you pictures of how mine looks. :-)

This is a beautiful wreath. I saved the picture because I like the mix of greenery and the simple burlap bow.

The stacked footed bowls above are a great!  This is such a simple idea but so beautiful, and fragrant. I remember making clove studded oranges in Brownies. Note that the footed bowls are different designs. So you don't have to have a matching set of stacking footed plates or bowls to do this project. Use what you have! Add some oranges, and greenery and you have a great centerpiece. I may give this one a try also.

Christmas in Provence Style (One King's Lane)

I saved the picture of Christmas in Provence Style because I lived in Provence years ago. It is still a special place in my heart. What I like about the style in this living room is how it is not perfect. There are aged chairs, a worn table, and personal decorative pieces. The flickering flames and the sleeping puppy add to the comfortable vibe this room has. I love it.

This footed silver bowl is on my wish list. Swoon! Let me count the ways I could use this bowl...ha.
Silver-Plated Footed Sheffield Tray
One King's Lane
This traditional footed silver tray would look wonderful with a set of collected Julep cups, or bowls of nuts. I like the classic style. I have a similar tray without the feet. Mine was a wedding gift oh so many years ago!

And if you had some wool could make a stocking similar to this one.  I am thinking of how neat it would be if I made stockings in our family tartan. Not this year...but I will put it on my list. :-)

I am not sure what it is about these free form candlesticks that caught my eye. They are just interesting, and would look good on a holiday table.

There is just something about plaid around the holidays and throughout the winter that just says cuddle up and stay for a while. Grab a cup of tea or hot chocolate, a book, a warm blanket and lean back on these pillows. I think they would look great on leather furniture too.

How great is this old table! I have a smaller farmhouse table, but I sure wish I had the space for a long one like this. I can look at this table and imagine different table settings from rustic to dressy. Or imagine having a table like this to for your Christmas Eve buffet? 
I hope you saw something that inspires you!

And for the musical part of your visit... The Prayer. This is a very powerful song to me. I think of my will many of you parents. Let me know what you think.

Celine Dion & Josh Groban Live "The Prayer"

I pray you'll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don't know

Let this be our prayer
As we go our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your Grace
To a place where we'll be safe
La luce che tu dai

I pray we'll find your light
Nel cuore restera
And hold it in our hearts
A ricordarci che
When stars go out each night
L'eterna stella sei
Nella mia preghiera
Let this be our prayer
Quanta fede c'e
When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace

Give us faith so we'll be safe. 
Sogniamo un mondo senza piu violenza

Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace e di fraternita

La forza che ci dai
We ask that life be kind
E'il desiderio che
And watch us from above
Ognuno trovi amore
We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro a se
Another soul to love

Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Just like every child

Needs to find a place,
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
E la fede che
Hai acceso in noi
Sento che ci salvera

Thanks for visiting!
