We all have that small area in our homes or office that needs something, but it is too small for anything too large. For me it was the breakfast nook in my home.
I created a focal point by framing themed photographs. I used a small sized photo and framed them all the same. The look was just right for a small area and it created an interesting focal point.
The photographs shown above are the ones I used. The frames are basic since I didn't want the story to be about the frames.
What area in your home could use a small, but effective focal point?
Yes, I am thankful everyday to those of you that take the time to visit and read my blog.
I am especially thankful to those of you that have purchased from me as that helps to put food on the table and pay the bills.

There are times when white accessories are just what your room needs. Here are 3 reasons why you should accessorize with white.
Restaurant owners have discovered that when they put flowers on the tables they have happier customers. You might briefly notice the flowers, but then you get on with your meal and visiting with your companions. But your mind has registered the presence of the flowers and have sent your body a happiness message.
Why not do the same in your home? You might not be able to always have fresh flowers on the table, but you can surround yourself with flowers. Adorn your walls with photographs of the flowers that make you feel good when you see them.
Flowers and plants in your home should be considered part of your mental health program. Why not, when they have the power to make you feel so good!
Here's what this photograph of the beautiful white Tulip look like on a wall in my dining area. What would it look like in your home?
Taking a walk in the garden can be magical. Flowers have so much to offer in their shapes, colors and scents.
Sadly not all of us have a garden we can take a walk in when we are in need of magic. If it is heading into winter where you live then a flower garden is no longer in bloom. So what do you do when you need the relaxing, magical power of flowers in your day?
My solution is to fill your home with flowers. I love cut flowers, but they will whither and die. So I also have lots of photographs of flowers. My walls become my indoor flower garden.
Remember the words of botanist Luther Burbank and fill your home with flowers. "Flowers always make people better, happier.... They are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul."
We all agree that our homes need to be our safe haven. A place we can retreat to at the end of the day to relax and be calm. It's important if we are going to go out and function at our jobs that we have that calming refuge. Here are 3 quick tips to help you create that space.
You've purchased your seascape photograph. It's framed and hanging in your living room. But something is lacking. Your room doesn't have that beach side atmosphere you were hoping to capture. Here are a couple of tips to help you give your room that seaside feeling.
Pull in colors that are beach related and the colors in your photograph. Use those as your accents if you aren't planning to replace your furniture. The featured photograph gives you a wide selection to use for accent colors. You can also use candles, especially ones that are decorated with seashells. to create a tabletop accent.
Texture is another thing you can use. Consider framing your photo in a wood that reminds you of driftwood. Use accents pillows that are trimmed in a braid that looks like nautical rope. Any little treasures you might have collected on your beach vacation can be added to create a layer of texture and to create your seascape decor.
