My husband thinks I'm crazy because I always want to have an alternative to a Christmas tree. I'm definitely showing this article. This year I am painting a collection of "found" branches, painting them gloss white and placing them in a large clear glass vase. I'm then going to drape them with white lights and white ornaments. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

What great ideas and beautiful small spaces. I noticed not many comments mentioned wall decor. Small spaces require small art. I love purchasing small original drawings or paintings. I've alwasy noticed my guests always walk up to them and look closely. Small artworks draw people in. Whenever I purchase I new piece I really have to love it. I usually look at it several times before I purchase and now I love that painting everytime I look at it. So display with meaning - no how large or small your walls are.

Regarding the framing suggestions here. Though there are cheap options you get what you pay for. If you are going to invest in high quality vintage posters - large or small-making an investment in the framing is making an investment in the art. If you don't use conservation glass or glass coated with UV coating your print will fade and discolor over time. It may also curl and wrinkle. The piece should be mounted on acid free foam core and then framed with conservation material. A custom framer will tell you the best way to handle this.

I think making your own book is a great idea. If I bought and displayed every accessory I fall in love with I would have to move out of my adorable house. So - taking a shot of it - putting it into a book and placing it on my coffee table so I can fantasy-redecorate is a very fun and timeless idea. My Publisher is another site that works well for these books.
