Inspiration for Christmas

accent pillows wrapped in festive ribbons

the inspirational Charlie Brown tree.

Christmas is around the corner and I think most of people start to feel de pressure. This year I don’t have plans on what I am going to do yet. I am leaning towards a quite Christmas. Regardless, I do not know if you are like me, I always change or add a garland, a wreath, or even a trim to the tree so the space LOOKS like it gets a CHRISTMAS makeover every year!
That being said, I am doing something different from the previous years. A small tree will be set up at the end of the stairs, facing the front door. I got "tired" of putting up the tree in the very same spot year after year, so time for a change!
To get some inspiration, I started to look at websites and magazines and in one of these searches, I found these pictures (the little Charlie Brown tree is the source of my inspiration for my project!) and hummm…he accent pillows wrapped in ribbons are not a bad idea either.

Crochet wonderland

I haven't been able to write too much lately. After I came back from Mexico my life has been in a hectic schedule and last week I just went under the knife. Nothing major but I'll be out of commission for 2 weeks.
That said and done, I am having a lot of time to browse the net and I bumped into the spring/summer 2011 Vanessa Montoro collection to die for. All her dresses are head to toe handmade, she does not produce in large scale and the pigments she dyes her pieces with are extracted from nature and are in essence: herbs,seeds,tree leaves and tree trunks, tea and coffee dyeing.
Her craftsmanship is stellar and her eye for details and sophistication is undeniable!!

I want this one for New Year party!!!

I would wear this one too...

So, girlsss... which one you loved the most???
