Wonderful Winter White Wednesday

My decorating is NEVER finished. Like all of my projects, it is always a "work in progress." I come across something that "speaks to me" and then i simply need to find a place for it. 
Here i've added my sweet handmade mitten from my recent mitten swap to my Christmas stocking hanger. I've also added one of my french scapulars.

....here i've added a french vocabulary card with the words: 
"le roi"..."the king"....

...and can anyone ever have enough angels watching over them?

..."la fete"...."feast or celebration"....

Here's a glimpse going up my stairway to the third floor. 
I am ALL about family photos and these are up all year long. 
At xmas...i have pictures of childhood Christmases for me and Mr. PML and xmas's past of our one-and-only and all of my nieces and nephews....

...a few more beloved family photos from around our home..

Our "guy", when he was just 2, telling Santa what was on his wish list....
(he asked for a pencil, a hat and chapstick! I'm NOT kidding!)

....pretending to be the Christmas Tree...

Wishing you all a wonderful winter white Wednesday mes amies and many happy memories of your Christmases' past!
I'm linking up with 
for more wonderful white inspiration.

Avec Amour,


  1. A lovely post full of wonderful memories!

  2. Awe, so sweet. Your son looks just like you....don't tell him I said so. At my parent's home we call the wall full of framed photos, the wall of shame....lol....oh, the hair styles....yikes!

    Your stockings are TDF.

  3. ~ Thank you for your sweet thoughts on our blog! SO nice to find kindred spirits :)

    ~ your son cracks me up...that he asked for a pencil, and chapstick!! haha that made me smile :)

    ~ Hope you have a blessed Christmas!

  4. Beautiful images of your Christmas inspirations. You inspired me to make a few simple decorations myself. My post is titled "Simplicity". They are nothing in comparison to your beautiful work, but I love being inspired to create by what others do.
    Have a wonderful Christmas.

  5. Hi Michelle,
    your white photo frames look so lovely all together. I have just bought myself a digital photo frame. Never thought I would, as they are usually very sleek and cold looking. But this one is made to look like wood. I am very happy with it, and can't wait to see my grandchildren's eyes light up when the see themselves on the 'small screen'. I was able to load over 70 photos of all three grandaughters. The colours are incredible.
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful decorating.
    Hope you Christmas is Merry and Bright.
