I was thrilled to welcome, as was Martha Luther King, our far from camera shy cat, Scot Haney of WFSB’s Better Connecticut to Connecticut Country House! I had a wonderful time showing him just how incredibly easy it is to embellish basic, store bought greens with snippets from the garden to create lush garlands and wreaths. Decorate your home for Christmas, Country House Style. Take a look and see for yourself how simple it is!

Happy decorating!

Love, Nora

    Thanks for the visit! Enjoyed learning from you.
    Where, OH where, do you buy your aprons? Gotta have the red one you wore on this presentation. Do you make them? Pattern to share? Fabric used? Details, details please.

      Hi Nan! The apron is from an on-line co. Hedley & Bennett….purchased it specifically for the shoot. I absolutely love it!! Here’s the link:

    Nora, So beautiful and so simple! I hope the roping is not all sold out in Newtown nurseries before I try it.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi! The white pine roping is from Caralluzzi’s in Newtown and Bethel! 🙂 Easy, easy! xo

    These videos are so fun Nora. I love the fresh and natural look you use in your country house.
    I have been eyeing your aprons as well putting that on my wish list.

      Hi Victoria! Thank you! I really love doing them! I found the apron on The Today Show! The CEO of Hedley & Bennett was featured. They’re a chef’s apron co. in L.A. http://www.hedleyandbennett.com
      My new favorite apron source!
      Merry Christmas Victoria! Love, Nora
