Here are some great image of flowers for Christmas from the Inside Out Website, which I thought were inspiring.

Blue and white never seems to go out of favor. It is always such a fresh and clean look.

Whether its stationary,

or classic interiors,

gorgeous blue and white china in a contemporary setting,

paler shades of blue,

or Ralph Lauren bedding

Blue and white is timeless.

What I want for Christmas

Books.....books and more books.
I love spending the summer break reading. Here is one of the books I covert...

One by Victoria Alexander
One is a celebration of individuality and life. Author Victoria Alexander writes with humour and wisdom about the importance of believing in and valuing ourselves. She reminds us to trust in ourselves, try things on for size, take risks and ask for what we want — after all, we might just get it. At its heart, this beautifully layered collection of stories, quotes, reflections and evocative images is about the power of choice and about enjoying life, with all its shifts and changes.
