Love at First Sight - My Christmas Tour of Blogland

Over the past few weeks, I've visited many of the Christmas open houses here in Blogland, and all I can say is wow.  I've seen so many creative and stunning ideas that it actually makes my brain hurt. Seriously, people, I'm on sensory overload here.

It always amazes me how another decorator can create something so totally different than I ever would, yet once I see it, it's love at first sight.  I guess that's what inspiration is all about.

Thinking back on what I've seen here over the past few weeks, there's a few ideas that really struck all the right notes with me.  They are all connected by a unique cottage style and a cheerful whimsy.
Here's a sampling of some of the ones that were love at first sight.

Luminaries in Jars:
so simple and romantic.
