It’s a Capitol Christmas!

Capitol Christmas tree 2016Welcome to December! This post features a 35-foot Christmas tree located at my state’s capitol. This year’s tree is decorated in a combination of traditional ornaments and a sea theme. It includes candy, bulbs, bells, snowflakes, Disney characters, and various sea creatures. The tall marble columns perfectly frame the tree, and the staircase in the background adds extra depth to the photo. No matter how you decorate your tree, you’ll create a festive theme that will brighten your space.

The Colorful Glass Tubes

Colorful tubesWhen I saw this art piece at the museum, I thought it was really cool! It’s part of an exhibit called “Look! See? The Colors and Letters of Jen Elek and Jeremy Bert.” I love the colorful, fanciful look of this piece. This particular art made me think of candy. I love the colors and fluidity of this piece. Combining colorful pieces into a single area is something anyone can do. You can buy reasonably priced pieces from museum gift shops, or buy pieces at a craft or big box store. They can be any shape or color you prefer. You could also find a picture with colorful shapes (or paint one yourself) and hang it somewhere that will garner lots of attention. No matter what medium you prefer, you can display art that’s colorful, fanciful, and so you!
