Inspired By...

...color. Bright color, neon color, and lots of it! This is in part due to Nicole's neon-themed Thanksgiving fête that she'll be throwing this week, and the fact that I wish I could either take part in it or throw a similar one myself. And it's in part due to my move down to Miami, where color--unlike black, back in New York--abounds.

...a pink wreath that adds a little extra brightness to a usually somber holiday color palette. I'd happily hang this on my door--it would fit nicely with my bright orange drapes.

...neon throw pillows in the sweetest prints and patterns (even if my inner grammar nerd is cringing at the grammatically incorrect phrase).

 ...whimsical plates with a kick of color and fun. After seeing these, I've come to the conclusion that all plates should come with dangling neon pompoms. What do you think?

 ...Christmas cards that exceed my expectations for color and brightness. You can bet everyone I know will be receiving these this holiday season!

...adorably bright hand-painted matches that will be perfect for lighting all my candles this holiday season. It's the little touches of color that always make the most impact, don't you think?
