Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.
Dot (AtticandBarnTreasures.com) – I adore poinsettias and I’ll bet you do too! At Christmastime our front porch is filled with their vibrant color. Just as I finished decorating the porch yesterday I wondered about the different varieties I’ve seen over the years pink, white, red, tri-color, yellow are they all “real” poinsettias? Read up on the lovely poinsettia plant and stump your friends with your knowledge during your next trivia game.

Tina (GirlPickers.com) – The most popular interior design styles in each state.
