Hostess gift ideas

It's that time of year again... 
that time of year when we start thinking about gifting 
and where to find the perfect gift for family and friends.

What do you get those hard to buy for guys in your life that have everything?
or your Aunt Cassandra who is very picky 
but who is also your favorite 
so you want to make sure you find something special?

Romantic Lifestyle peek

Back in September, 
my oldest son and his girlfriend came for a visit
and stayed in a guest bedroom that was dressed for Christmas.


A favorite pretty flocked tree with lots of twinkling white lights
and branches heavy with faux snow stood in the corner while
clippings of fresh branches of cedar and pine were
draped from the chandelier and arched windows.

Decorating ahead of the seasons is not that far from normal over here actually
so they didn't think much of it
and yes,
 in case you are wondering, the Christmas in September decorating
 didn't stop there.

Random Saturday


Welcome to another edition of Random Saturday at French Country Cottage.
A bit of this, a dab of that and a whole lot of randomness.
Which is exactly the way I like random Saturdays to be.


This week- it's about creating magic and bringing kids visions to life
Sherlock, and a little decking the halls.

Feathered Nest Friday

Welcome to Feathered Nest Friday!

I hope your week has been going well! 
It's been  a bit of a quiet week on the blog this week
 I have been off playing elf in Los Angeles this week
 working on a special secret project with Lowe's. 
More coming soon, along with some movie magic.

Here's what I shared this week~

DIY- Reindeer with gilded antlers

Last week, I shared these cute little reindeer that I found at Lowe's 
that I used as place card setting holders.



I am in love with them and decided to try a little paint the antlers
on a couple of them to jazz them up a bit.
