The season is certainly upon us and everyone seems to be in the spirit this year. The stores are crowded, there is an upbeat festive fervor that fills the air and the only downside is the traffic and challenging parking situations – a small price to pay! I don’t usually post current articles from magazines but this month’s Connecticut Cottages and Gardens contained such a perfect seasonal feature, I couldn’t resist.
Not far from me in the neighboring town of New Canaan, sits a classic 18th century white clapboard home owned by interior design Susan Oster and husband Hank. Set on 5 acres, this old house was made for the holidays.

I don’t think I’d even mind the snow knowing I could relax in this fabulous copper tub looking out over the property. Here’s hoping this serves as a little inspiration during your holiday preparations!!
