Norwegian designer Signe may live in an apartment in Paris now, but her Nordic roots are still apparent in the lightness of touch she brings to decorating her home, where she lives with her French husband. Love how unabashedly pretty this is. More here on Bolig Pluss.

Charmaine of Lobo Luxe wishes all automatism blog readers love, joy and peace for the holidays and 2012. The beautiful handcrafted Love Pendant by Yasuko Azuma, made of 10karat brushed gold highlighted with a sparkling red spinel gem, would be a lovely way of keeping that positive message close throughout the new year, too.
Tiny Prints, part of the greeting and announcement card family that includes the lovely Wedding Paper Divas, has a huge selection of fresh and pretty new year's card designs to which you can add your own photos — create a personal card and make the beginning of 2012 a warm and memorable one for family and friends!
Add some sophistication to your holiday outfit with beautiful vintage jewelry from Frances and Fils! Expertly curated by Connie of 100 Applegate, the shop features pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries, with designs ranging from Chanel to Lanvin. Start the new year off in style!
Ildiko and Flavia of Double Fox Studio have been busy in their studio for the last little while, and the result is that they already have new dolls and necklaces in the shop — with more to come in the new year, too. Shown above are two of the latest works, but be sure to visit to see more loveliness!
Izabella of FifiduVie has several exciting new items in her shop, but I was particularly charmed by her Love Notes — they're romantic and fun and would be lovely to discover tucked under a pillow or between the pages of a book. You'll find them here.
Pamela at Bates Mercantile Co. offers a great option for customers who love her bold graphic designs but aren't sure if they'll work within their home — customized versions upon request. Here you can see the original multi-colored version of her striking chevron design on the left, and one that was made to order with custom teal coloring on the right. Needless to say, the possibilities are endless!
A sweet end to the last Spotlight of 2011, as Liza of Small Equals shares an adorable photo of Stella and Saki. Awww! Liza would also like to say thanks for everything, and how much she's looking forward to a great 2012.
Thanks so much to my wonderful sponsors, and to you, lovely reader, for supporting them throughout 2011 too. Here's to a 2012 filled with peace and happiness!
