As a tradition, my husband and I usually go on the day after Thanksgiving to pick out a tree with his family. There's a special lot that has our preferred species (Balsam Firs - I love how skinny and open they are, which is great for showcasing ornaments.

Cathe at Just Something I Made has made some beautiful decals, which she is offering the world for free. Did I say 'some'? I should have said a TON because there's a style for every style!
I am totally in love with these 3D door stickers from Couture Deco. The material is described as 'trompe-l'oeil on opaque white fabric with satin finish.' The stickers are washable, fire
Walltat's reflective wall decals combine the ease of wall decals with the sparkle of mirrors for an interesting effect. Their abstract images, in particular,
Although this spider & web vinyl decal ($22) from Vinyl On The Go would be PERFECT for Halloween, it's so cool, I'd be tempted to leave up all year.
If arachnids aren't your thing, how about this bird in cage ($15)? Very Raven-y, no?
Decorative and functional, these wall pocket decals, available at Wrapables, can hold photos, CDs postcards, love notes and other lightweight, flat mementos. The 35 orange and pink dot set will set you back about 14 bucks.
Think of an Ikea Lack side table. Got a picture in your head? Now think of all the other people reading this that have the same picture in their heads.

The owners of this Victoria, Australia house wanted their interior to be full of natural light, but they also didn’t want it to suffer the effects of relentless sunshine. Their designer, Andrew Maynard Architects, chose to stick very large tree-shaped tattoos (aka, decals) to their windows. The window-cling diffuses light, casting delicate shadows that tone down the rays and provide privacy for the upper floor. To view more images and read...
These re-stickable photo frames from Photojojo are so clever I can hardly stand it. Made of premium, pliable vinyl--just like those fancy wall decals--the frames not only stick to walls but to windows too. (I wonder how they'd look on a window framing a photo transfer? Hmmmm.) A set of 8 will set you back 20 big ones--or 2 for 36.

- Writing utensil (marker or pencil)
- Large sized scrap paper (like used news...
Bold, graphic wall decals have been everywhere the last few years, but I've yet to see a DIYable option (have you? Post it below). Thankfully Danielle Thompson has taken the plunge, and done it up the DIY route.
She writes, "Really, you can create your OWN for much less money and that it's easy!
So I was like, "YES! i can do this MYSELF!" LOL. So I started searching stock photography sites a few weeks ago, found what...
