Houzz December Ideabook

Last month began my new collaboration with Houzz and I shared my November ideabook which was all about stitched and embroidered details. Another month has gone by so I am excited to reveal my next ideabook. I completed it last week, right before the new year. Like everyone else, I was thinking about the past year and what my hopes and dreams were for the upcoming 2012. Everyone hopes to have a year filled with luck and good fortune. That got me thinking about good luck symbols in our culture and then I did some research on lucky symbols throughout the world, things like elephants, pigs, acorns, ladybugs, and bamboo (to name a few). I found 20 items that are all a fresh take on lucky charms. I don't necessarily believe in luck myself but each of these items would make a fun gift to ring in a positive new year.

 

Do you believe in luck and if you do, what items are special to you? Pigs, clover leafs, and wishbones aside, I think 2012 is going to be a great year. In the last handful of years, the ones that ended in positive numbers have been better for me overall (2008, 2010) compared to the odd ones (2009, 2011). So if this method holds true, 2012 is looking good. But I realize this is a dumb way to predict the outcome of the new year. All I can say is, three days in, things are looking alright. Happy Tuesday folks!
