My Bio ARTIST & BLOGGER Darryl Moland began his design career at Southern Living magazine. He then applied his creativity to art direction at several magazines, including Cooking Light and Atlanta. Darryl—an avid collector of ornaments and props—put his life experiences and imagination to work by creating a blog. The popularity of the blog led to The Decorated Tree, a fantasy-laden book infused with soulful memories of the people who taught him that holiday magic can be a part of every season.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
A book about a special rose bush I've documented that had a stellar blooming year in 2013.
A book on ornament collecting featuring the best of my collection.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
MY NATURE has ALWAYS BEEN to ASK WHY? So I ask—why do millions of people around the world instantly respond to the magic of decorating a tree? It must be something that resonates deeply with our psyche. As an ancient custom, the decorated tree has played an important part of winter celebrations for centuries.
