When I went to visit a friend in New Hampshire earlier this year (it is still this year, isn't it?) I brought home a couple of things that really inspired me. A white pitcher, a linen napkin, and lots of good memories of a day in Portsmouth. I've had these things in my dining room for months, thinking I would paint them. I added the little cut crystal vase of daisies and some hand-painted ornaments and POOF - it's a Christmas motif.
