Thoughts for Christmas.

Hello lovelies, My place at night during the winter months... photo by me, Beautymist. 'Tis the merry season again. What are you up to for Christmas? Are you decorating your home? At least, winterizing it a bit? Making gifts yourself, just like Holly Becker advises (wisely) to do? Do you buy handmade? Local? Organic? Green in any way? With care and love and thoughts for the recipient, like sfgirlbybay advises? In this spirit, here is a lovely piece of advice I found via the ever lovely ABT blog: Here's what i've done so far....

Bold Art with a Statement

Hello Lovelies! This post has been inspired by this house tour, esp. this image: Just like the French journalist of "Journal de la maison", I think that, on a big white wall, with no windows, i love to see a big colorful piece of art. It makes such a bold statement! In my home, I use my own oil paintings, but here are a few examples of art I love: stunning photo by Joanna Henderson via the ever wonderful sunny blog More pics to come! -Beautymist.
