Christmas in July!

Summer is in full swing! We’ve got fireworks coming next week and I’ve got some family coming into town for a cookout. It’s a lovely season!

Another of my favorite seasons is Christmas. However, I also like to spread out my gift purchases over the year to give my wallet a break. So, this July, I’m sharing my love of summer and Christmas and I’m having a sale in my DazzlingDoOvers Etsy shop.

NonTeam Treasury Challenge 118

This week’s inspiration item was this gorgeous Black Feather Fascinator Headdress by LaCocoRouge. Not only is this a fabulous headdress, her pictures are gorgeous; I love the romantic and magical feel to it. It was that spark of something sweet and loving that I wanted to capture with my treasury. Plus, it’s getting on time for Valentines Day, so a little romance seemed just right!




NonTeam Challenge 99

This week’s inspiration item are these lovely, vintage shoes from the shop of KarmaRox:

I love the vintage and classic, fairy tale feel these shoes have. It really got my mind thinking of rustic and primitive Halloween decorations. Since it’s not quite October yet, I decided that this treasury should have a definite Halloween feel, but still be mostly rustic and primitive autumn themed overall, to suggest the approach of Halloween.

I love how it turned out!

Friday Feature

I must be feeling an affinity for ethereal, atmospheric today. As I was picking out things to feature on for this week, this Abstract Landscape from the shop of evesand really appealed to me. I love the simple, monochromatic theme (and this shade of blue is a favorite of mine). It’s a really lovely composition with the great combination of serene shapes in the background, and then, with the flock of birds sweeping across the frame, there’s a wonderful sense of motion; giving the whole image a feel of quiet energy. Fantastic!

Definitely be sure to take a look at the other lovely prints and paintings available in this shop.

And next up today, these adorable Blue Bird Ceramic Candle Holders, found in the shop of blueroompottery. The simple lines of these birds give the set an elegant, agelessness. The rustic, crackle glaze completes the effect making these a perfect, timeless addition to anyone’s home decor! Be sure to visit this shop to see all the other beautiful pieces available there.
