Today I’m featuring my favorite picks for the theme I hosted
 Hand Painted Christmas

It was my first time hosting a link up party and let me tell you, I sure don’t envy those of you who do this every week.  It’s hard to narrow the selection down to just a few because there is some serious talent out there, but here goes…

One piece that really caught my attention was this Whimsical Christmas Chair by Deb by Lake Girl Paints.  

After spending several years myself creating garden chairs, I have a true appreciation for the uniqueness of Deb’s style.  Check them out this chair along with another whimsical piece here.

I absolutely love, love, love Believe in the Magic by Colleen Taylor
It is a painting of Colleen’s two year old granddaughter who already at age two is an avid reader and loves to be read to.  Colleen painted a large painting of this and then made prints that she handed out for this year’s Christmas cards. What a treasure!  You can read all about it here.
Another rustic piece that stole my heart was painted my friend Karin at Art is Beauty
I love rustic Christmas decor.  The contrast of the rich red pops off the reclaimed wood is way cool.  Karin always makes everything look so easy!  Apparently I’m not the only one who loves it, because this entry received the most likes from all of you too.

I also loved Diaper and Diva’s take on Pottery Barn’s NOEL.

I’ve seen it re-created numerous times but Heather’s laid out a great tutorial that’s easy enough even for a beginner DIYer.
