AND SO IT BEGINS..............................................

Hello everyone:)
Yes, we have started to decorate for Christmas at Maison St. Germain!!!! Yes, yes, I know........It's not even Thanksgiving yet. We have learned that in retail, one must get ready for the Holidays early. And, truthfully, we love decorating for Christmas!!!!! I wanted to share with you some photos of the shop to get you into the spirit. One compliment that we always get is that our shop is so much fun and our decorating for Christmas is no exception. We have had so much enjoyment putting it all together.
                                        LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this area:)
                   This is what greats you when you walk in.

          Nicole decorated our large tree. This is a cozy area. So many vintage ornaments to choose from.
        Paper ornaments on a small tree on an awesome desk.
 Our Christmas chair, for sale, that I painted and added the plump seat. Looks like a Santa's chair.
                                  Fun ornaments and decorations:)
      A German tree sent inside of a galvanized tub, tucked in with a burlap bag. Crochet snowmen with pins.

                    Love cubbies. You can do so much with them.
                  Blow mold snowman and pink tree decorates the front window.

                                                                    Pink trees rock:)
 This vintage Frosty is actually part of a costume. It comes from a NY dance studio that closed. Looks fabulous as a Winter decoration. Sure to make everyone smile.
                                        Lots of sugar fruit as awesome prices.

                                                   Baby's first Christmas.

 The cutest child's Adirondack chair. Put this inside or outside in the garden.
 One of our awesome doors!!!! Original farmhouse door with frame wreath.
           Vintage ornament. We have lots of them for your home. I love the old mercury glass ornaments.

                 I can see this Christmas chair in an entry way or besides the tree. It is so comfy.

             We have fun chalkboards. French and pine tree chalkboards to hang in your home. Would be great in the kitchen, bedroom for the kids or anywhere you can leave an inspiring message for the day on.
                Another fab door and handmade, glittery paper ornaments. Doors are so versatile. Beautiful Kantha quilt hangs on the old door.
  A box of pretty paintings. No need to frame these. You can hang them or set them on a shelf or table.
                     Great burlap covered stool and fun furniture.

            Fill birdcages with vintage ornaments. What a pretty idea.
                                 Adorable stools, vintage rocker for baby and lots of décor.
                               An old wooden box from Sweden holds more Christmas fun.
               Great chair, fun drop leaf table, Christmas tray and mantle all ready for you.
                    Add some wrapped gifts to the rocker and put under your tree. Here we used an old door as a table. Such a great look. This is the kind of desk that I have in my office. Love doors!!!!!! Simple, fun and so vintage.
                                                                 HAPPY BIRTHDAY..........!
                                I hope you enjoy our Christmas cheer. Have you started to decorate yet? I will be starting in the barn soon. Have a vintage Christmas!!!

'Till next time.........................................
