Happy 2011! Happy Color!











Being addicted to color, I always await the color trends for the coming year. Home trends always follow fashion trends, and for 2011, "they" are saying "Wine is the new black." The official pantone color is "Honeysuckle" and by the photo of the color above, it embraces the full spectrum all the way to wine. Benjamin Moore is calling their color selection "Vintage Wine" and it is also shown in the photos above taken from blogs, "Sensational Color" and "Live in Full Color" which I came across browsing the internet. If you are looking for a diversion, check them out so you can see where else this color is popping up. If you are going to use this color, they say it is paired well with neutrals and to keep it simple with accessories. The "color" needs to do the talking!
Happy New Year to all of you! Happy Color!

Now THAT is a tree skirt

I love this picture courtesy of French Hen Farm in Marysville, Ohio. French Hen Farm has semi-annual barn sales (and a blogspot, www.frenchhenfarm.blogspot.com), and this is a pic of their creative work. I have yet to attend a sale, but I have heard it is fabulous. I hope you guys are all having fun preparing for the holidays!

Glitterbug and Honey Girl Studios



Tracey of Glitterbug Studios from Uniontown, Ohio contacted me and I wanted to share with you her blogspot http://www.glitterbugstudios.blogspot.com/ - and and her friend's blogspot of Honeygirl Studios http://www.honeygirlstudios.blogspot.com/. The peace wreath was created by Tracey of Glitterbug and the snowman created by Honey Girl. There is even a pattern on how to made the adorable little guy on Honey Girl blogspot.
We have been snowed in for the last two days and these types of days are really my favorite! I love it when the world stops and we get to stay TOGETHER here at our house. We spent the entire day baking yesterday and I would not change it for the world! I hope you all are enjoying getting ready for the holidays.
