Earlier this week, I got the urge to start digging out my most favorite Christmas books...full of ideas and inspiration....Here are the books I hold near and dear to me during this most festive season:
First...the books that really got me into primitive decorating...The Country Living Book...Country Christmas and Country Home...Olde Fashioned Christmas...these two books just spoke to my heart when I first laid eyes on them...I still love them today..
Next...is from the Time Life Country Book series that came out in the late 80's, early 90's. I have the complete set and just love them....this Christmas book is just gorgeous!!
And who can forget Mary Engelbreit? Her books were so cheerful...they just put a smile of your face as soon as you open the cover!
This next one was published by Country Sampler about 25 years ago. I bought this one at a thrift shop for 25 cents!
A set of three Christmas with Country Living...these books are pretty good...it was before Country Living transitioned into a Martha Stewart style magazine....There are nice stories about collectors and their collections...
I don't think I have to say a word about this wonderful book or this wonderful lady......except...if you see this book and you do not already have it....get it!!! Beautiful!!!
A great reference book for those that collect antique-vintage ornaments....I love this book...I think it's about 20 years old.
Last, but not least are the two absolutely gorgeous books photographed and written by Tina Woltman...both of these books are treasures.....The homes she has illustrated are just breathtaking...her photography is beautiful...I think her latest book is still available...well worth purchasing!
Stacee Droit, Arnetts Country Store, will be releasing a new Christmas book on December 10 . You can pre order her book by emailing her. It will be lovely pictures of her home and decorations. I can't wait for that one!
