Red White & Black

Have you noticed how drab the house looks when all the Christmas decorations come down? It’s sad to me to see all the pretty red and green things long gone. While my decor has some color to it and isn’t drab, I think it’s those pops of color that really keep the winter season from becoming drab.

For this very reason, I’ve expanded my Valentine’s Day decor to add some beautiful red and white…and even a little black…to my home. I created a Valentine’s Day initial flag a few years ago and am always so excited to pull it out. They are available in my etsy shop here  if this is something you might like to add to your holiday decorations.

Then, I made a wreath for the carport door using white mesh, different ribbons, pipe cleaners and a heart wire wreath form.

These things make me so happy and I think the touch of black is unexpected yet it adds some unexpected boldness to the pieces. What do you think? Let me know if you try it out! 🙂

Engagement Gift

I’ve created a new ornament all about the proposal! For this one, I wanted to show the man on one knee holding out a beautiful engagement ring and the woman delighted with the scene in front of her. I hope I captured this most happiest occasion:

I so love my job and creating precious ornaments that are sure to be treasured for life. It makes people happy, so what more could I possibly want? <3

These are available in my shop here. I thought they’d make a sweet gift for a precious friend or relative who just got engaged or even a treasure for their bridal shower.

Paintings Galore

I was able to reach my goal of getting 48 listings up today! I figured I’d make another post this evening and then I’m going to leave the computer for a good long while. It’s been a long day of listing, editing photos, sharing photos and such. Though, I truly love my “job”!

This one is one of my personal favorites. The owl seems to be saying “Hello World, I’m ready for anything!”

Okay, that’s enough for tonight and probably more than anyone would want to actually look through at one time. I realize these are photo heavy but maybe my overly talkative post earlier today makes up for that. 🙂

xoxo and good night my friends,

Rhonda
