A French-Inspired Garden and Home by Judith Stringham

Christmas Greenhouse 2013

Sunday, December 1, 2013

A magical little greenhouse 
made from old doors and windows 
is all dressed up for 
~ C~h..rist~mas~
in beautiful unexpected colors.

It's beginning to look like Christmas in my sister's greenhouse.

The evergreen wreath on the horizontal old door 
is preserved greens that last for many years. 

Wood carved birds and handcrafted mossy nests 
hang from a lighted, bare-branches tree.

A wire window box lined with Christmas script burlap and 
filled with Christmas greenery combines 
elegance with twiggy, rustic touches. 

White azaleas in the French wire plant stand add a 
French flair. 

As does the white display on the opposite counter. 
A gray zinc rooster adds a Provençal touch.
The white fleur-de-lis wire planter 
looks perfect here, but
is also the perfect size and shape for a mantel display. 

White roses stand ready for a special Christmas centerpiece 
and pair perfectly with snow-dusted evergreens. 

With a little rearranging here, 

and a little grouping there, placing whites across the room...


a magical wonderland of unusual 
Christmas colors. 

The magic of my sister. 
Ready for more Christmas inspiration?
 How about some 
handmade Christmas goodness?

Then, come back for
