Did you receive the latest issue of Dabble Magazine in your inbox? Its all about celebrating the upcoming Holiday season. I absolutely love the Christmas tree on the over….the blues and purples are gorgeous and not your typical traditional Christmas colours.
Lately I have been majorly crushing on anything GOLD. And I talk about this in my latest What’s Trending column, as you can see from the image below.
There’s also more Golden goodness on the Dabble Blog. If you are so over silver and chrome in your home, then hopefully these featured products will inspire you to add some glamorous gold into your home decor for 2013.
To also help you get into the Christmas spirit, My friend, Nicolas Rosaci, the resident Dabble DIY Guy has some great DIY ideas to enhance your gift wrapping this season.
Later this week I will give you a holiday tour of my house all decorated for Christmas. In the meantime, there is only 6 more days left till Christmas…..Yikes!! Good luck!!
On a more serious note: As a mother of 2 young girls, I was heartbroken about the terrible tragedy in Connecticut that had 20 beautiful children taken from their parents. Our children and families are so precious and we must never take them for granted. Please kiss and hug your loved ones today and everyday. I know I am.
Hi, with Christmas just around the corner, I have been super crazy busy getting ready for the holidays and trying to tie up some loose ends with design clients this past week. And I am pretty sure you would say the same thing back to me.
So below is a gorgeous tree for every day that I missed since my last Christmas Inspiration blog post ! Hope you enjoy these Christmas trees from around the world. Some of these trees are utterly amazing and creative. So it’s nice to take just a little break from all the hoopla, and just sit back and take in the magic of Christmas.
The Capitol Christmas tree in Washington , D.C. , is decorated with 3,000 ornaments that are the handiwork of U.S. schoolchildren. Encircling evergreens in the ‘Pathway of Peace’ represent the 50 U.S. states.
The world’s largest Christmas tree display rises up the slopes of Monte Ingino outside of Gubbio, in Italy ‘s Umbria region. Composed of about 500 lights connected by 40,000 feet of wire, the ‘tree’ is a modern marvel for an ancient city
A Christmas tree befitting Tokyo ‘s night-time neon display is projected onto the exterior of the Grand Prince Hotel Akasaka.
Illuminating the Gothic facades of Prague’s Old Town Square, and casting its glow over the manger display of the famous Christmas market, is a grand tree cut in the Sumava mountains in the southern Czech Republic.
Venice ‘s Murano Island renowned throughout the world for its quality glasswork is home to the tallest glass tree in the world. Sculpted by master glass blower Simone Cenedese, the artistic Christmas tree is a modern reflection of the holiday season.
Moscow celebrates Christmas according to the Russian Orthodox calendar on Jan. 7. For weeks beforehand, the city is alive with festivities in anticipation of Father Frost’s arrival on his magical troika with the Snow Maiden. He and his helper deliver gifts under the New Year tree, or yolka, which is traditionally a fir.
The largest Christmas tree in Europe (more than 230 feet tall) can be found in the Praca do Comercio in Lisbon , Portugal . Thousands of lights adorn the tree, adding to the special enchantment of the city during the holiday season.
‘Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree’: Even in its humblest attire, aglow beside a tiny chapel in Germany ‘s Karwendel mountains, a Christmas tree is a wondrous sight.
Ooh la la Galeries Lafayette! In Paris , even the Christmas trees are chic. With its monumental, baroque dome, plus 10 stories of lights and high fashion, it’s no surprise this show-stopping department store draws more visitors than the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower
In addition to the Vatican ‘s heavenly evergreen, St. Peter’s Square in Rome hosts a larger-than-life nativity scene in front of the obelisk.
The Christmas tree that greets revelers at the Puerta del Sol is dressed for a party. Madrid ‘s two-week celebration makes millionaires along with merrymakers. On Dec. 22, a lucky citizen will win El Gordo (the fat one), the world’s biggest lottery.

Deep sigh. Ok, 10 more days!!! Back to panic mode. Gotta go!!!
Struggling with a Christmas gift idea….well here’s one you may love for someone special or for yourself!!!
I fell in love with the Toy Watch brand of watches last spring when I saw it on one of my girlfriends’ wrist. And voila, for Mother’s Day I had this little charmer on my arm!!
I blogged about it in one of my “Decorate as you Dress” posts last spring here.
Well, now it’s time (I think) for a black Toy Watch …..and this is the baby that I have put on my Santa list!! It has lots of sparkle and glam….exactly what I love in my fashion accessories and in my home decor accessories.
Or maybe this one……What do you think?
