{St} Britney

If you've followed this blog over the last 6 years, you know I am a huge fan of pop singer, Britney Spears, so I was super excited to receive this "holy" candle from a couple of my students this week. 



The candle sits in a prominent place at Acorn Cottage.

These and many other "holy" candles are sold at Fleurty Girl (several locations around New Orleans).



St. Britney, y'all!

From Our Home to Yours {Christmas: Kitchen}

At Christmas, even the kitchen gets some red and green love.

Santa holding a cup of java, glittered balls in bowls and decanters, and cookies in a cake plate, all signal that the Christmas season is alive and well at Acorn Cottage.






I have also used another silvered tinsel tree in the kitchen to house my ever-growing collection of food-inspired ornaments --- deviled eggs, cookies, hamburgers, a New Orleans poboy, sushi, pies, and more.

From Our Home to Yours {Christmas: Den and Dining Rooms}

In the rear of the house is an open room which houses our den (the place we lounge and watch TV) and the dining room. Both have been decorated for the Christmas season in a very traditional way.





The tabletop tree in the den is Suzanne Kasler for Ballard Designs. I filled the tree with a woodland theme using pheasant feathers, found antlers, turtle shells, and ornaments including pheasants, pine cones, and of course, acorns.










Even my antler collection received some Christmas joy.





Various Christmas items are spread throughout the shelves of the built-in.






In the dining area, green cedar garlands hang atop the chandelier and artwork. An arrangement of glittered poms fill a ceramic vessel on the buffet. 










Red berries and greens complement vases and displays on the French-style baker's shelves.







The paper mache' deer head backed with more cedar hangs in the rear French door which overlooks the backyard.




Christmas is a special time of year in our home, and I hope it shows. For sources, just comment and I'll reply.
