Edie van Breem's Christmas Magic...

The case clock and wheat arrangements certainly
speak of van Breem's Scandinavian heritage.
I love the wheat mixed with boxwood in this
wreath hanging above a 19th-century
painted-wood bench.
Both the table and its trappings are just lovely.
I especially like the simplicity of the goose-feather
tree in that wonderful copper pot.
What a beautiful holiday display!
The table is a 70-year-old clam-shucking table.
A 200-year-old dowry chest from Lapland holds
cozy blankets and a stellen straw star. We
sell these wonderful stellen decorations at
Finderskeepers Market.
Here is that Christmas magic I mentioned.
Check out Edie van Breem's shop for more
of her Scandinavian-inspired items.
