Is This Old News?

Sometimes I'm late to the party. I drag my feet on deciding whether or not to buy something and I end up missing out.

That was the case on the Jeanne d'Arc Christmas book of a couple of years ago. Was I wrong in thinking it was said that it would not be reprinted? (I may be thinking of Vintage by Nina Christmas, by Nina Hartmann. I made the same mistake with that one!) At any rate, it was out of stock everywhere by the time I decided I had to have it. UNTIL NOW!!!!  I stumbled upon it at my local vintage shop. Don't you love second chances? There is no printing date on the issue so I don't know if it's been reprinted a while and I am only just now finding out. Whatever!

From CHRISTMAS by Jeanne d'Arc Living
Many of you already have a copy, so you know that the illustrations are mostly tight shots of beautiful vignettes with just a few long shots of whole rooms. But I love the tones, colors, and natural elements used for decorating in this style. I woke up dreaming about what I want to incorporate from it this year in my own rooms. No kidding!

From CHRISTMAS by Jeanne d'Arc Living

Thought some of you might like to know this go around!

Happy First Day of Fall!
(It's a fantastic day here in New Mexico . . . )

And a wonderful week to you too!


*Heather at Vestiges has copies available at Vintage Market & Design. Call 505-299-7777 to order, or visit the website here. Heather also has copies in stock of the book French Finesse that I posted about here.


  1. This is a favorite of mine and have already been preusing it. Mine is paperback too. I bought it two years ago.

  2. I did manage to get that last year, and it IS a wonderful publication, glad you were able to find one, better late than never. xo

  3. I have not seen that book. Looks interesting. Happy Fall to you too.

  4. I bet it has such beautiful pictures in it!
    I do love the white pumpkins on the silver pretty.

  5. A nice find Jacqueline. I've never seen the magazine before but have heard of it on blogs. I can see that it's definitely your style. Happy first week of fall to you!

  6. I only just have ever bought the spring one, love having it out when the season rolls around - Christmas one sounds awesome.

    Love your mini ghost pumpkins in the old silver tray, lovely look.


  7. Hi J,
    Oh lucky you, I stalled and lost out too :-( Looks lovely! You musta sent the clouds back my way cause it is a drencher here today....

  8. So lovely magazine but it doesn't exist here or a similar one...I'm always happy to visit your white,bright world Jacqueline!
    Have a nice week!

  9. So glad you were able to find a copy, Jacqueline! Second chances like that are so wonderful. The images are so lovely, and what I like about that kind of decorating is that it's more "winter" than specifically Christmas, so you can indulge it a little earlier (and later) than you can Christmas decorations. Happy planning, and have a lovely week. Our Autumn arrived with beautiful weather, too!

  10. Hi Jacqueline, I have a stack of them in my shop (I think that's where you found it). They were hiding under some other Christmas stuff but I moved them out front so they are easier to find! I also have other Christmas items from Jeanne d'Arc Living. :) Yay for Nordic Christmas!

  11. I think I have this one. Better go check.

  12. No chance in a million that I'm going to find these magazines or the beautiful special Christmas edition in retail. I am a retail clutz. I have to pay more attention. In this post I'm dreaming about the silver candle holder with the green wreath. So elegant.

  13. I have not seen this issue and will have to look for it. I love that magazine and have several current issues. It looks like it has a lot of great ideas.

  14. Thanks for posting the update Jacqueline!

  19. Jackie, your decorating is beautiful, I love anything with the sepia color. Your photos are inspiring me to get busy with Fall.
    My son that lives in AZ broke his neck, he had a terrible fall so I am off center this summer and late getting into fall. Thankful my son is okay and now I will begin decorating. Always wishing you the best.
