Some of my Favorite Photos

I've had bad luck with any sort of technology lately.
ANY sort.  BAD luck.
The thing that upset me the most was breaking my camera and favorite lens.
So I'm sharing some of my favorite pictures from the past couple years
and celebrating the arrival of a new (upgraded) camera
that I should have in my hands tomorrow.

Hallway Decorating Ideas

Once I finish a project, I'm already brainstorming and ready to start on the next one.
I have a nice long hallway that will be perfect to do something FUN!
I'm excited and a tad overwhelmed because there are so many options.
 
Wallpaper would be my first choice, but since I rent,
I want to keep things inexpensive and relatively easy.

can you say amaze-statment?

one of all time favorite wallpapers.  


 
There are so many great things you can do with
washi tape or vinyl stickers, so it's currently the route I'm leaning towards....

What IS washi tape?  It's high grade masking tape originating from Japan.
Washi tape can be used on anything!
It's low-adhesive which makes it easy to use and re-use.
It comes in different widths, colors and patterns.

 
 
washi tape
 
vinyl kitties!

flamingo's!
 
pretty sure I could do this with a sharpie...
 
washi tape?  even love the color.
 
herringbone.
 
currently my front runner.....
 

easy peasy.
 
this was done with a sharpie.  (my favorite art supply).
 
 
 
I plan to hang some photos along the hallway (and who knows what else).
Looking forward to share the finished product!

Settling in…Again!

Let's keep things short and sweet, shall we?  
We moved a few months ago.
Found a really great place in one of my favorite neighborhoods and I couldn't pass it up.
Bigger space, lot's of neighborhood kids and rope swings!
As always, settling in takes forever.






I spray painted the bench legs black, 'dipped' them in gold, and recovered the seat.

IKEA Vittsjo coffee table spray painted gold.









I painted this last week.  Painters tape = easy peasy.








I love the 24"x36" print of Lucy.  It cost around $3.50 from Staples.




These were the only two rooms clean enough to photograph.
Will post more soon...
Have a great weekend!
