creating a home

i am happiest when i’m surrounded by wonderful things. people, pretty patterns, sparkly things, beautiful words, tea, anything teal, etc.

since we moved into our very ugly home in december i’ve made it my mission to turn these ugly walls into a place where i am happy.

tonight we worked on the living room.
the space above the tv was terrible bare.

(watching braveheart)

one frustrated husband (apparently making them touch was easier said than done) and four picture fames later…ta da!

(still braveheart)

here’s a close up:

this project was insanely easy!

four picture frames (i used 8.5 x 11 and got them from dollar tree)
scrapbook paper (i got a HUGE pack from michael’s for under $10)
and nails.

first take the scrapbook paper and cut to the size of the frame.
then place in frame.
next put the frame back together (i chose not to put the glass top back on but do whatever floats your boat!)
figure out how you want it to look on your wall and hammer away.

easy, inexpensive and time consuming…a military wife’s dream!

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
