the Desk of Picture Lady
After the time change in California I let out a sigh of relief, for it seemed we were coming out of the gloom. There is again lightness in the air, blossoms are on the trees, and it is getting warmer by the day. I walk in the door, I am safe and cozy, and it is pretty. We even still have the stove on from time to time. My family can always come here to recharge. We are looking forward to the Lilac Festival.
You may find that it is a very worthwhile project to choose to create a home that is a haven.
My customers are telling me that they don’t want trendy, they want timeless and I do agree.
Trends last about a decade. Ten years ago everybody was buying a chocolate brown couch. Now the preferred couch color is light gray or off-white, to match the new turquoise decorating trend. Lightness is in, darkness is out.
However, ask yourself this: Is there any better color combination than chocolate brown and turquoise? Or even black leather with crème and turquoise? You can bring in the touch of lightness to contrast with the brown or black or other dark or neutral colors, without incurring any major expense.
Why not change out a picture or two? See www.picturelady.com/MostPopular.htm. Add in a throw: Find old colorful bottles (these are often turquoise) at a yard sale or the swap meet. Arrange some silk flowers. Voila! You have a whole new look!
Do come and share your decorating wins with us at the next event. To find out where we will be, go to: http://www.picturelady.com/schedule.htm . The password is “art” (without the quotes).
If you are looking for a unique gift to make Mom feel truly special, order the PHOTO to ARTWORK. Go to www.picturelady.com/enlrgmt1.htm to personalize your special gift for Mom. These big pictures are exquisite, but we have also added a smaller picture (11" x 14”) and these sell for only $45.00. If cost or space is a factor you may want to choose one of these.
Either way, now is the time to get us your precious
photograph so that we can have it ready for you in time. We are receiving
orders via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone
661 242 1010 or 213 281 2402.
It took a dedicated effort on behalf of two persistent
women to get the agreement to make this day an annual event and this can
be considered a win for all women. More information at www.picturelady.com/mothersday.htm.
Until next month!
