This was on my living room wall. A picture taken of a friend of my son’s toes with a dandelion, a personalized birthday gift from my bf and a saying I cut out of map pieces a few years ago when I was going through some rough times.
I decided to change up the rough times picture as I feel far more settled and happy now. I have had these printed Instagram images lying around in a pile for a while, I figured I’d finally put them to good use.
The frame is a Ribba from IKEA.
I picked my favs and laid them out in a way I liked.
Then ta da! New happier wall art!
Had a hard time getting a non glarey picture but you get the gist.
How fun are these?
Made from vintage linens found while thrifting. Some are embellished with some hand stitching. Get Batman and Robin here and the Wonder Woman here.

Sunday morning I was the last one down stairs. I could hear hubby making breakfast with the kids and I woke up with a mission. I don’t even have a before image to share, it was that embarassing, I used to have a HUGE pile of unread books on my nightstand. I’ve converted to reading ebooks on my iPad so those books have sat there untouched for over a year. So I went on a mission to clean up and beautify my corner of the room.
I sorted the books into our yard sale pile and a keep pile. Then I wrote down all the titles of the books and made a pledge that I’ll either read them over the summer or buy the ebook and get rid of the physical book. I found them a happy new home, on a bookshelf.
Then I filled the wall space up with my growing collection of handmade art. My glorious Lucky Jackson winnings. This great personalized paining by Lisah and a fun wall hanging from CoucouSalut.
I’ve still got my beautiful print by Laura Jean on the other wall but I have to get some other things framed before it will be complete. I love the way Laura distresses frames and has them all whitewashed, I’m going to frame my other pieces to match.
