Living Color - Red and Green

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
everywhere you go!

{I love that song.}

Today I'm going to share some of my favorite finds 
on Flickr and Pinterest,
featuring the colors of the season.

Let's get started with this appetizing rosemary wreath,
adorned with olives.

Even Mother Nature loves to decorate for Christmas.

Try cutting some poinsettia bracts,
sealing the cut ends in a flame,
and arranging them in a vase or pitcher...
for a stunning display that will last for about a week!

I've actually used this idea for years
with a fishbowl shaped vase,
filled with some holly and water.
Float some fresh cranberries
and a votive candle.

{A large pillar candle also looks awesome in the center,
in place of votives.} on Pinterest

For comfort and joy,
how about some cushy cushions?

I am filing this away for next year's projects...
little trees stitched casually onto a great background print.

{Perfect fabric selections!}

Look at these little sugared cranberry and brie bites...
I would love to try making them sometime! via Pinterest

This is such a pretty place setting,
and I love the touch of tulle, for a suggestion of snow. on Pinterest

Speaking of it is in soft green, 
all dressed up with a handmade gift tag!

{I would love to find this fabulous present
under my Christmas tree any year!}

Here's another darling little gift tag, also
featuring Winter fabric by Minick and Simpson for Moda!

{That's the same line I've used in my Winter Dresden quilt,
and you'll finally get to see the finished quilt in my next post...I promise!}

  2. What a lovely array of holiday inspiration! Such a delightful post!

  3. Thanks for all the inspiration!!

  4. Oh that is great! I have been so flat out that I am determined to work on some Christmas projects throughout 2013.


I look forward to your comments and will read each and every one, even if I am not able to reply to all of them.
