Jeanne D'Arc Living

I was very fortunate to have won a copy of Jeanne D'Arc Living from Carol at Raised in Cotton a few weeks ago. I have been pouring over the pages since it arrived in my mailbox and every time I find something new.

The photos transcend the language barrier and draw me in to delight and inspire.
This makes me want to decorate a nursery.

How many wonderful ideas would pop into your head if
your workroom looked like this, I wonder?

Simple, sweet and beautifully appointed rooms.

These two hangers just make me happy.

I have already started collecting lichens from my back yard in hopes of having enough to make a wreath like this. I think by this winter I should have what I need.

There are recipes, tutorials and this easy-peasy way to make a vignette that looks as though it took years to create.

Seriously, anyone can do this!

Thank you, Carol. I will treasure this forever.

Oh sweet Karin - you are a lucky girl! That's one of those magazines that you hang on to forever because it will forever inspire you. I agree with you on that wreath - very, very clever - and I know yours will be jus' as beautiful. Have a blessed weekend. Cathy

Very inspiring photos! I know one thing. . .If I had a room like that, it would never be called a "work" room!
