Gallery walls are not just for museums

This is the wall in my bathroom. The images are a collection of pictures and knick knack from my travels.

 

I have to talk about walls again. My favorite way to decorate is to hang things on the wall. Pictures, knick knacks, hooks, planters, whatever.

If there is wall space I will find an object to fill it.

There’s no need to be nervous about putting holes in your wall. You can always patch them later.

Don’t be scared about how to hang stuff. Just get a nail and hammer and hang it.

And don’t worry about properly framing things. Traditional framing is EXPENSIVE even with a 50% off coupon from Michael’s.

So let goooo of the idea that things must be framed. That is the quickest way to not to get anything up.

Think about mounting your image on foam board instead. Mounting gives your photo or art a professional finish without trapping it in a frame, and it is wayyyy cheaper.

I have a great local art shop by me that will mount anything, and even include a little hanger on the back for peanuts.

Or just grab some masking tape and stick it to the wall. It will look really cute, I promise.

So grab that hammer,  go make some holes and display all of your cute things!

A cute house addition!

Hi, I’m Penny.

Trixie and Penny the puppy.

Sometimes the things that make a house cute, aren’t things at all.

Meet our new puppy, Penny! She joins big sister, Trixie and cat cousins, Bootsie and Ralph.

We adopted her from the Chicagoland Lab Rescue. She was found on the side of the road. Who would abandon such a cutie?

My hanging garden

Look at how cute these are hanging in the corner!

 

 

I am a sucker for hanging things from my ceiling. I got these flowers from a freecycle friend who was getting rid of her giant vase and silk flowers. I wanted to make these into barrettes, but I cut my hair so it wouldn’t look good.

Here’s my cutie flower (and dog) before I bent it to hang.

 

 

Instead, I did a little bending and hooking, and look at how cute these turned out.  Share your cute projects with me not twitter. I’m @evassolo!
