Do You Hear What I Hear?

Shop Update - November



So I know I've been saying there's no Christmas decorations at The Little White House before the first Sunday of Advent, but the shop is a different story. I have to think a little ahead.

Au cottage, il n'y aura pas de décorations de Noël avant un bon moment, mais à la boutique, je suis obligée de prendre un peu d'avance.



I like to create "collections" for the shop rather than listing all the items as soon as I find them. It's a way to be creative  while not creating anything really!

J'aime créer des "collections" plutôt que de mettre en ligne les objets dès que je les trouve.


The 2013 Christmas collection is inspired by one of my favourite Christmas songs, by the line "Bring Him silver and gold".

La collection Noël 2013 est inspirée par un vers d'une de mes chansons de Noël préférées, disant que les mages amènent à l'enfant Jésus de l'or et de l'argent. Je sais, c'est ridicule, un enfant n'en a vraiment pas besoin, mais la chanson est si belle!


So I gathered many of my silver items and all the dishes I had that are white or off-white and gold on the dining-room table to decide what would make it to the Christmas collection and what wouldn't for whatever reason.


J'ai rassemblé une grande partie de mon argenterie et de ma vaisselle blanche ou crème et or pour décider quels articles seraient les meilleurs pour cette collection.

It made the prettiest cluttered table and I snapped some pictures, thinking you'd like a little "behind the scenes" view! Let me tell you I haven't been able to eat at that table for several days!


J'ai trouvé que le bazar rassemblé alors sur ma table de salle-à-manger faisait un joli amoncellement et j'ai pris quelques photos, pensant que cela vous amuserait peut-être de voir un peu "backstage", à quoi ressemble la salle-à-manger quand je prépare une collection. Autant vous dire que je mange sur le guéridon du salon en ce moment!


If you want to see what's already in the shop, just for some eye candy, you can visit the "Silver and Gold" collection in my shop. Not everything is listed yet, because I also have a real job and as the days are really short, taking pictures is an issue! I'll keep adding items as time allows throughout November.


Vous pouvez toujours jeter un coup d'oeil à la collection "D'Or et D'Argent" de la boutique si vous voulez voir de la jolie vaisselle. Je continuerai d'augmenter la collection tout au long du mois.


So, do you like "silver and gold" for Christmas?

Alors, que pensez-vous d'une table étincelante pour Noël?

See you soon for some kitchen inspiration!

A bientôt pour un peu d'inspiration pour la cuisine!

  1. The winter collection is so beautiful and delicate! I love the understated curves... and the song inspiration, of course! (sometimes I make my decor after one song inspiration, too)

  16. Yes, I love silver and gold for Christmas, I can't resist a bit of bling and I love gold on china. When I worked for Royal Worcester I went to the factory and was fascinated to see little bottles of gold (for hand-painting rims) turning constantly, so that the gold would never settle and harden off.
    I enjoyed the song, I'm not sure if I've heard it before, it sounded sort of familiar.

  19. Your "silver and gold" is really beautiful. I do like to use my good china on Christmas day. I have no place at the moment to keep it handy so it is down in the basement in boxes! So sad, I should use it more often than that, eh?

  20. You do silver and gold proud! So elegant and sophisticated!

  26. I love this collection. It looks fantastic. That is such restraint to hold the items back until you have a collection. Well worth it, it's fantastic!
