Stuck them together, and now he lives with his rhino friend.

And they are very solemn together. I love it.

Pinterest project- hang it all

November 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

 

Things in my house always look best in repeat. Many frames, many jars, many ties.  A display of many similar items pulls things together and gives you big visual impact for your little objects. I love all the ceilings full of poufs or globes seen on pinterest. Have a collection of anything? Hang it from the ceiling. Instant art! I started with five objects. Several were thrifted and the big fish scale lamp I covered with dictionary pages over a year ago. This is our master bedroom. It is huge and empty. And I’ve come to realize that I’m going to need a lot more things to hang for this cluster to be filled out. But here is a start.

In recent weeks

Here are some bits we have thrifted. Uniform pants, $2.

Keens, I snap them up when I see them. If we can’t use them I’ll pass them on. Such good versatility and quality.

A paper making kit. $2. A really fun school or busy activity.

Litho print

Thrifted this week, a litho print by Jean Adams. It is the colors that I love. And that it looks like a Mrs Piggle Wiggle illustration. It cost me $3. And fit itself into the playroom effortlessly.

This is what we buy for the kids to draw on. They are prolific artists in this phase of life and go through many sheets each day. $3. Cheap and plentiful.

Pinterest project- places we love

May 4, 2012 § 1 Comment

Hearts and maps go together so well, speaking wordlessly of the places you love or that have significance to you. There are tons of happy DIY projects with maps on pinterest. See here and here. So I got a US atlas and world atlas at Goodwill, about $2, cut out hearts of our places of birth and places we’ve lived, and put together a shadow box using one I’ve had stashed forever and a bit of blue painted artboard. It is personal and colorful and goes beautifully in a memory filled gallery.

It also makes a terrific gift!

 

Alphabet cards

Thrifted as a complete set, 226 fun alphabet flashcards with cute graphics and pithy sayings. Added to my etsy shop. Would be great with pieces in a gallery wall.
