The Home Tour...Holiday Harvest

































I am inviting you on my tour of Jennifer Lanne's farmhouse...I've just signed the guest book...I am the first name on the page for her 2007 "Holiday Harvest" Open House and Studio Tour...

The Lanne homestead is wonderfully overwhelming with glorious displays...there are evergreens everywhere, sparkling lights festoon the nooks and chandeliers are hung with a bevy of sparkly baubles....as Jennifer calls it, it's "pasture posh".

Welcome to their home, where Christmas is shared around the 1762 hearth much the same as ever it was...with good cheer and room enough for friends to gather in your heart, around your table and by your side during the merriest of seasons.






























Here's Erica...Jennifer's friend and my wonderful pal for the evening...we helped shoppers in the studio where gobs of Jennifer's wonderful art was on display.























Jennifer has her own way with colors and textures, weaving layered magic with her old treasures, snips of nature, toys, folk art and antique china...














Jennifer loves old farm animal toys ...this was last year's Christmas gift from her fab and thoughtful hubby...










Jennifer and Dick adore Laurie Meseroll's "Mud-Cakes"...their collection is growing...this "Skaters" piece is their new favorite.... I love the angel hanging next to their couch (see image above).














...visions of sugared plums!














...here's hoping some of you can join the fun at the Lanne home and Jennifer's studio next year...
Until then ...merry, merry and enjoy this magic time of year.
xxoo Jen
