Off Topic...

okay, so my dad flew in yesterday.  He is here to see me(obviously) and to help T and I put together our new apartment. Here are some pictures I've gathered for inspiration.


I found an ornate frame like this on the street. I want to clean it up and find a piece of art to put inside.  I love this dresser too.  We are currently looking for a piece like this.


I love planting.  Flowers and greenery bring life to a space and they smell amazing.  I love these pots and I like how they are all gathered together. maybe under a window??


I love this wall art.  I would love to do something like this in our bedroom.  I'm not sure if it is possible but it creates such a great focal point and depth. 

I hope you all have a great and productive weekend!

Perhaps try Craigslist and maybe Ikea for similar pieces? Good luck getting things done this weekend!

What fun inspirations. I particularly like the over sized flower wall art. Please continue to share your ideas I think you are very creative and it's fun to see your ideas.

Would any of Ginnie's sketch's work in that frame?

Kirby said...

Yes I was thinking of putting something of Ginnie's in there. I'll post about that another time. Ginnie was the grandma of a childhood friend who painted. I was given a handful of her sketches from before she was married. I was also blessed with the gift of her wedding dress!!

Thanks for the comment mom!
