A few years ago I found the gorgeous Danish Company Jeanne d' Arc Living and introduced them to the US selling they're line through our shop and online. Within weeks the word spread and the JDL Nordic French Style became hugely popular and we found ourselves filling orders as quickly as we could.
One of my all time favorite books (and a hot seller) that they published was the Christmas book; "JUL~ i den fransk inspirered bolig" Christmas in the French Inspired Home. The book would constantly sell out even before we would get our next shipment in. Because of the demand, JDL reprinted the JUL book offering a special edition magazine format a few months later~
To celebrate Christmas and how much your continued support means to us, we are offering a giveaway of one of the Jeanne d' Arc Living Special Edition Jul issues we have in our saved stock. Leave a comment here on the blog or on our Facebook Page. On Thursday, I will draw a name and contact you;)
#1 Keep it SIMPLE but select a lovely contrast of colors.
Cranberry red and pale green was this years primary shades.
#2 Use plants and fruit to decorate with.
Tiny evergreen trees, poinsettias and pomegranates were used to lend a natural element.
#3 Use Vintage in unexpected ways.
Line a collection of unframed mirrors down the center for a table runner. Bring out the tarnished silver and fill with plants.
#4 Add some candle sparkle.
#5 Use what you already have.
Shop your house! I bet you have some beautiful things to use for your Holiday table.

A few last photos to share with you of the Bottoms Up Holiday Market of some wonderful handmade angel wings. Artist Ginger Schrader crafted these and I thought they were simply beautiful. Ginger does not have a blog but she will be back next month at the Bottoms Up Show~
Check out the beaded chandelier which Ginger fashioned by turning a Christmas tree upside down.
These wings were my favorite, I just loved the shape and size of them.
Stay warm Dear Friends and Thank You for your continued support!

The Bottoms Up Holiday Market in downtown Kansas City over the weekend was so much fun. The old warehouse venue was delightful and I managed to snap a few photos to share with you;
There were three floors filled with vintage splendor, this is the double doors that opened to the second floor where our space was located~
A nook in the entry~The fresh greens contrast well with the distressed plaster of the building.

Finally, this is our Raised In Cotton space. I really adored styling around the huge windows.
