Sometimes I come upon images that are “Just Pretty.” Do  you do that? You know, you look at them and say to yourself, “that is just pretty.”

I thought I would share some images that I think are “PRETTY.” All of these images put a gentle smile on my face. I hope they do the same for YOU!!

No further words needed. Just sit back and enjoy the view……….

What Little Black Dress Does Your Home Wear?

With the New Year celebrations coming up we all start thinking about what to wear for the special parties.

Should we go glitzy or should we stay classic?

We have all heard of the “Little Black Dress.” No one did it better than Audrey Hepburn.

We have been told for years that we all need one in our wardrobe. I have my simple Calvin Klein that I will be able to wear for years to come and I can dress it up or down.

The “Little Black Dress” can go with anything and go anywhere. It can be changed by just adding different accessories, color or texture.

I also think we need pieces like this in our homes.

I started thinking about what is the “Little Black Dress” in my home?!

You know the item or room that goes with just about anything and it can be changed by an addition of an accessory or a color.

My “Little Black Dress” in my home is definitely my dining room with it’s simple green and white striped wallpaper and wood floors.

 Alone it is unadorned, but with a few changes it can be changed for the seasons or for any occasion.

Do you have a “Little Black Dress” in your home?

I think we all need an area or an item that is easily changed, don’t you?

After all it is change that keeps us motivated and moving forward towards a new goal. Change is exciting and motivating so we need our own “Little Black Dress” in our homes.

I think a good goal  for 2011 is to make more areas in my home dressed in it’s own “Little Black Dress.”

How about you, do you have a little black dress in your home?

Take a look around!  Do you have areas that are easily changed with just a few accessories, textures or color?

Something to think about, isn’t it?

I wonder what my dining room will be wearing for New Years Eve?!
