the art beat

A house feels like a home when there's art on the walls... ok, and in every nook and cranny. But for this post I want to concentrate on the walls. In these etsy shops you'll find original art, collage, prints, digital art as well as vintage prints. I've chosen one example from each shop, just click on an image and enter a shop full of beautiful work! You may find just the piece for that blank wall next to your favorite chair...

stick these in your stocking...

Who doesn't like to be pampered? If you hurry, there's still time to pick up something good smelling, creamy smooth, deep cleaning and just plain luxurious! I'm thinking perfect stocking stuffers, but why not pop some in a pretty little beribboned basket for an awesome hostess gift, teacher gift, or maybe you need a secret santa gift for the office? And while you're at it, pick up a little something for yourself. After all, you're worth it...
