Welcome to our home.  Last time I shared our French Cottage porch HEREToday I would like to invite you in to see our foyer dressed for Christmas.  

With a semi open floor plan I tend to keep the foyer simple so the views don’t appear to chaotic.

I kept my old large cloche on the Bombay chest from Fall.  I’m enjoying it with the French mirror I made HERE.  I added an antique silver plate bowl to this large cloche filled with fresh Chestnuts and a champagne bottle brush tree.   Simple with some elegance.  A frosted Eucalyptus wreath dives the mirror a Christmas feel too.

A Vintage bell sits upon an old book with an antique Christmas post card.  I love these and they make you imagine the families Christmases.

Our small German twig tree is a staple in this spot in the foyer.  I enjoy adding a new piece to the base every year.  This year I raised it on a pretty pedestal and placed it inside a copper pot I found.

Over the years I have collected glass ornaments that are Christopher Radko, Old World Ornaments and ornaments from Poland.   Look and see if you can notice an ornament shaped as a Peanut in a shell and one that is a Reeses Peanut butter cup package?  These are for our two fur babies Reeses and Peanut.  

They are our precious mini Dachshunds’, if you would like to see them from when they were pups and more click on Peanut & Reeses photo album at the tope of the page, you won’t be disappointed.  

Across from our tree is this pretty French chair holding a plaid scarf for those cold winter days in NJ for me to grab.  For now, it’s under a pretty lighted Christmas Tree picture that was a gift and antique post cards from the US and Europe that date back to the early 1900’s.
