Another Pretty image of ORANGE!!!
Tulips are one of my favorite flowers and in this orangie blush color playing off the pretty pillow is stunning!!!
These lovely orange fabrics I would never think would play off the natural linen, It works!!! the warmth from the orange cools a bit from the linen. I really like that! I love the little window opening outward.
They are about 5X7 and are not matted or framed yet.
I have a quick question...I would love to get them framed, although I am clueless what to do. Should I keep the matting and frames white or should I make them more colorful? Or should I just simply tack them up with old tacks for a different look? I would love to hear your input.
I love the pop of orange in the nectarines & on a cold blustery day in Chicago I would love to be by a warm sea.

Ohhhh, i love the carving and the caning of this bed all painted in white. In this volatile market we might just be able to find something close in style at a consignment shop. And with a fresh coat of white paint and some vintage quilts this might actually be achievable
I love English gardens. And this beauty takes me right there. I could definitely achieve sweet dreams here.
This room is so pretty and soft. For me though I need just a bit more color or umph... Maybe just a tad lighter on the walls could do it for me or perhaps a white wash strip. What do you think?
I could definitely make this my spare bedroom. I love the pops of pink, just enough umph (color).

A cute snow angel with lots of snow flakes and a tiny touch of gold. You can also specify another saying instead of Happy Holidays.

My passion for painting and designing has come from her. She has a wonderful eye for color and as a tot I loved going to the stiching store to help pick out threads. I can't wait for her to get her Christmas tree up so I can share all her needle point stockings with you. They are small and sweet & come in all sorts of colours and are very eceltic.
I'd love to hear what passions you have that were helped upon the way from your parents or grandparents.
May you have a great day!

more towers with lots of windows & a trees.
This wonderful family enjoyed the summer in Venice and they all made masks & this princess had the most colourful mask, hmmm, I wonder if this room inspired her, nope! It was the princess who inspired me. I love little ones imaginations. They have such wonderful ideas. Thank you Princess Maggie!!! Well, that completes this mural tour & I hope you enjoyed this lovely princess room?
May everyone have a GREAT WEEKEND!

Bunk bed topped with a beautiful tiara corona with pretty feathers, beads & more crystals.
When painting trees, on the darker leaves I suggest painting a top coat of light green glitter paint, this gives a really special effect. Makes a magical space for any princess!
May everyone have a great Princess day!

The garden grounds. The statues just beautiful! The rustic iron door knocker is so charming against the lovely shade of the French Blue Door.
So lovely! I can almost feel the sunset against my face. OK, I'm just dreaming for a bit.
I love the cute lanterns reflecting off the beautiful patina of the stone terrace and the water. Lovely!
