Butterflies, sequins, bandanas, mountain vistas, angel wings—what does it all add up to? There's only one answer, my friends: Dolly Parton. A tastemaker from the moment she hit the stage, the singer and humanitarian is as beloved for her look (country, but make it unabashedly glamorous) and personality as her iconic tunes. It makes good and perfect sense, then, that her brand-new art collection—available for a limited time at Kirkland's, online and in stores—is inspired by the Dolly songs we all know and love.

Called From the HeART, the 9-piece collection by artist David Diskin is composed mostly of large-scale, framed canvas prints. "Blue Valley Songbird" features tree, patchwork quilt, and mountain motifs. There's a pastel barn in "Smoky Mountain Memories," and a spotted puppy on a bandana background in "Cracker Jack." Just one of the works features the icon herself: "Dolly at the Ryman," a poster-sized photograph by Stacie Huckeba of Dolly—clad in lace bellbottoms, no less—playing an electric guitar on the famous stage.

No Jolene lyrics here; the works are all nostalgia, inspiration, and happiness. We are blessed.

And Dolly feels the same way. "I never thought I would see my songs come to life this way!" the singer tells House Beautiful. "Seeing this collection at Kirkland's come to life has been surreal and so special to me." Hardcore fans, who know her commitment to helping aspiring musicians, will not be surprised that part of the proceeds from this limited-edition collection will go to the Opry Trust Fund, "whose mission is to help those in the country music industry by offering financial assistance during their times of need," she explains.

It's a fitting cause, considering the first wall art Dolly remembers having in her house: "When Carl and I first got married, we really didn't have anything," she tells House Beautiful. "I was a struggling country singer, and he was working on his paving business. We were truly grateful just to have walls. I'm sure the first thing we would've put on the walls was our marriage license, and the picture of our wedding out in front of the courthouse in Ringgold, Georgia."

While her circumstances have changed, Dolly's decor at home is still all about the important things. "My decorating style is different in every single house that I have. The only thing they have in common is they are bright, comfortable, and very cozy," she says. "The only things I really collect are books, and photos of my family, and they are both scattered throughout all of my homes. I'm a sucker for a cute baby photo."

Her favorite spot? "A comfortable chair, curled up in front of a fireplace with a good book or a guitar. It's my happy place." Her favorite scent? "Bacon....ha ha. Seriously though, I love a good scented candle and always have them burning, but I also love bacon, so guess it's a tossup." Stars, they're just like us! Seeing as this is not Dolly's first foray into decor—it was just May that the singer signed a partnership with IMG to bring a home goods line to life—we can count on more Dolly-inspired essentials (bacon-scented candles, perhaps?) on the way.
