Today I’m sharing a shoot that I did last year at Christmas time in the sweet cottage of a friend here in Florida. This cottage is tiny and filled with lots of collectibles lovingly collected over time. It’s the second time.
that I’ve photographed this cottage of my friend Drena Bathemess, with the first time being published internationally. You can read about that shoot HERE and see her little abode in non Christmas mode.
This chair is one of Drena’s favorite pieces.
The living room is the heart of the home where her family gathers to relax around the fireplace on a winter night on the squishy, comfy sofas.
A twinkling barn star behind the bar set up on the buffet.
The galley kitchen had been beautifully remodeled by the previous owner. It’s artfully accented for the holidays with white painted nutcrackers, vintage white ceramic trees and fresh white flowers.
The table is set with mismatched flea market china and glassware in true shabby chic style.

She has the sweetest home and has decorated it beautifully!
I wonder do you know: how does her teen boy feel about shabby chic interiors? : – )
