Dear Friend:

 As I write the fire burns brightly, but there is a cold whisper through the trees.  Here is a true snow picture for 2010.

It was taken by my son, last weekend from our house looking across to his garage. Yes it is a great delight to have my grand-daughter so nearby.

Here are some practical Decorating Tips for you, to add some enchantment to your home.

I wanted to share with you a preview of the color palette for 2011. I think it is bright and friendly. Notice the touch of primrose (yellow) and the great glory of the rust and the vermillion (red).

Color Palette 
It can be easy as we hit the shops on the Black Friday weekend when we are bombarded by all the noise and color, to lose track of the real meaning of the season.
It was brought home to me when we began a new decorating project for an Egyptian doctor. He had chosen to decorate his house with Coptic Religious Icons. Not only is this art magnificent, but it is steeped in the history of some of the purest forms of Christianity. We visited the Coptic Church in Eagle Rock, a very inspiring experience. I found the people anchored in sincerity.
At Picture Lady we strive to respect the beliefs of others.  On our site you will also find exquisite Judaic Stained Glass Paintings.  For an African Influence see the unusual religious art of Okaybabs from Nigeria.
Revisit our Inspirational pictures in the catalog for we have added many new images and these all celebrate the real meaning of the season.

Quote for the Month:

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. - Calvin Coolidge
