Color Inspirations – Crimson & Frost

Add a touch of cool elegance with this Crimson and Frost color inspiration.

During this season, it’s easy to get lost in either reds or greens or all the cold colors of the season. But winter is still working its way upon us, and in this transitional season, let a touch of radiant color bloom through your colder tones with this Crimson & Frost color scheme. Icy tones can be your main focus, but let winter leave a little color yet untouched by frost. See how it compares to the original.

Handmade Highlights – Santa Tea Towel

santa

Tis the season! Thismomloves hand embroidered the Snowstorm Santa design on a white linen dish towel. I am always looking for sweet and thoughtful handmade gifts to give, and this piece would be perfect! It’s always great inspiration to see how you can create some of your own hand embroidered gifts, or if not, buy some from a local craft fair and support the handmade community this holiday season!

Santa Claus is coming… for braaiins! At least he is in this adorable stocking from Cushion Rock, packed with goodies like a little gnomie santa and a tasty gingerbread man. I may be a little weird, but I’d love to wake up to this delight on Christmas morning!
