First Thursday with Artist Matthew Coveny

This month's First Thursday event featured the artwork of Matthew Coveny.

Recognize that name? Aren't we lucky to have this kind of talent in our family?

Don't his paintings look great in the shop? I think they really work with those giant orange sea horses.

Seriously though - he is so talented and original... I'm a proud big sister.

Thank You to The Style Side of Life!

I just received a lovely surprise. Shelly from The Style Side of Life visited the shop on her Key West trip and just featured some pictures she took.

Here are a couple:

See the rest HERE.

Shelly's site is new to me and I'm looking forward to reading more. She's going to be renovating her darling 1930s bungalow this year and I couldn't be more jealous. Can't wait to see the finished project!

Do you have any big renovation plans for 2012?

Where Did the Time Go?

I had every intention of posting some pictures of my home decorated for the holidays...write about a few more decorators on the Elle Decor A List...browse design blogs for more beautiful, inspirational images to share...

Of course none of that happened. But here is a belated view of my favorite Christmas tradition:

If you'd like to read more about my Christmas tree issues - check out my recent post on The Big Piece of Cake.

The tree is gone now...replaced by the furniture we moved to make room. And a beautiful Amaryllis flower is now blooming there to help ease the pain of not seeing lights and ornaments. Actually...I should be honest and admit that I'm kind of relieved to have everything back to normal. I loved my tree, but it was really, REALLY dead. Needles were everywhere. And it was beginning to smell.

I think I'll start the New Year with some pretty pictures. No theme - no color story - just a lot of pretty:

Wishing you all the best in 2012 - and A LOT of pretty!
