Is the year of the rabbit!

I want to share a special treat I manage to get for myself!  In ho-menage to the Year of the rabbit which starts Feb 3.  In the Chinese New Year tradition, this is the year of the rabbit! Cute little thing!!!

According to Chinese tradition, the Rabbit brings a year in which you can catch your breath and calm your nerves.  It is a time for negotiation.  Don't try to force issues, because if you do you will ultimately fail.  To gain the greatest benefits from this time, focus on home, family, security, diplomacy, and your relationships with women and children.   Make it a goal to create a safe, peaceful lifestyle, so you will be able to calmly deal with any problem that may arise.

So I decided to follow in this beautiful tradition and make myself a heaven in my bedroom....!

This is the bedspread that started it all...

This is a close up of the face of the painting that I did for the room 

The name of the painting is "El Amor es Fragil"

In her skirt she has a poem written in spanish by me that translates to this,

Love is Fragile
Take care of it
Protect it
Bless it
Guide it
Live it
Light it
Adore it
Play it
Seed it
Every second 
of every hour
each day
and forever

I can tell you for sure that the energy in the room has totally change! Thank you for reading and comment away I love messages!
