Yet More Color + A Winner!

Ok...It's altogether possible that Michelle's painting has fundamentally changed me.

Ever since that insanely gorgeous color-fest arrived at my house, all I want to look at is color, color, color... (but Nichole, I'm with you, my favorite way to see it is tempered against loads of neutrals + white.)



Further proof below -- the images that jumped out at me as I was leafing through my inspiration folder last night.

All teeming with rich, lovely color...

And now for the winner of the DwellStudio sheet set giveaway. I was blown away by all the comments and read every single one. So fun!

The winner is Krista. Congrats! (Be sure to drop me a line with your contact info)

Have a fantastic weekend friends...We have Millie's birthday cowgirl shindig this weekend, I'll be back Monday with details and photos!

That painting is fanTASTIC. Seriously, I'm kind of obsessed and think you did allll the right things giving that to yourselves as a gift. Also, I'm loving your "squishy" resolutions and having grappled with my own, ahem, loose ties on 2010 goals, I totally support that school of thought! Woot!

I think we could all use a little color on dreary winter days! This post brightened my day right up. ;)

Love, love, love the painting. I was coveting it myself and actually talked to my husband about buying it for one another like you two did!
I see it has found a good home. Looks great!
