I'm so glad you have joined me for this new venture at Happiness Tree Decor. This blog was created to give me an exclusive space to display and talk about my love of art, photography, crafts, Happiness Tree Decor, gardening, floral arranging, decorating, design, and collecting.
If you have never been to the blog before, look over the "Info/FAQ" page above for information about me or the blog. To view Happiness Tree Decor topiaries, baskets, or trees select the "Decor/Display" tab above. To view Happiness Tree Decor wreathes, swags, and holiday decor select the "Holiday Decor "tab above.
I am still updating the sidebars and the content of the page tabs above, but most of the tinkering I have left to do is identification and tagging work. I'll also have photos of some of the new wreathes and swags for the holidays later this week. I would love to hear from you, so please feel free to comment or e-mail me.

|A sunflower from our garden. This one had a genetic anomaly, where it had two backs. Nothing you can do about that!|
Fall always has me thinking about what gardening problems I've had during the year and what I want to do about them. It also signals it is time to examine what I want to do with the garden in the coming year. Good planning means everything to the success of a garden and fall is a great time to do that. Plant Green just published this article with gardening wisdom everyone should be considering.

For those of you used to seeing Matisse paintings with bold colors and heavy detail, you might want to take a look at the pieces collected from a five year period where his work was dominated by darker colors and geometric design. They are much more abstract and much more introspective. Follow the link to check them out or go straight to the MoMA here.

Painter Megan Van Groll says she's "fascinated by the obsessive, erotic, and somewhat dark role of food in the female consciousness." Interesting. Follow the link to see more of her work. May not be safe for work.
