As we wrap up the first week of 2013, it was clear that most all the blogs and sites we looked at had a new year theme in mind. Festive party decor, new year’s resolution lists, 2013 calendars, and D.I.Y. projects were just some of the colorful content we noted.  All the color balanced nicely with the well-crafted and pretty neutral items we’ve added to our wish lists!

1. Just in time for New Year’s Eve, we were inspired by a bright and shiny tablescape.

2.  We were reminded of this easy and cheerful confetti wall project.

3.  The solution to maximizing desk space with a desktop computer!

4. A vintage-inspired 2013 calendar we’re lusting after.

5.  Giant rag rug D.I.Y. = Happy decor color to kick off a new year!

6. Handmade wooden bicycle handlebars that are almost too pretty to use.

7. The most unique [and detailed] paper dolls we have ever seen!
