for many years now I have had this hope and vision of a wall full of fun frames and photos that was jagged and loved. I shopped every sale for frames, probably more than 30 + frames have been hoarded for the past 5+ years.
and not one was ever hung.
even though i worked in an art gallery for quite a while, helped curate a few shows and even set up the whole thing... i had fear of doing this on my own. but never fear! mr.handsome to the rescue!!!
yesterday he dared to trust me with this crazy sketch.
i made a rule... no more buying new frames. make it fit. and it's okay to not use all of them :)
we have plenty of walls that need frame love. xo
to say i was not scared would be a lie. i was scared. so very scared! I guess because actually "dreaming up" something is totally different than actually "making it happen". I kept asking myself what if it doesn't look like I want it to? So many years just dreaming.
we nailed it. i helped with my little mini hammer :P
I hammer like a girl. ask mr.handsome. I'm surprised he didn't laugh. lol
oh sweetness. I was SO very happy. I kept asking mister if he liked it. but really? I mean be honest please!
we stepped back. a few more steps. looking. seeing. liking. loving our new little wall.
happy smiles. :)
we tore the paper sketch down, i need to fill the frames with our pictures and i am in love!
so funny how just a little wall frame can make it feel more like home. my home.
I will share better pictures with you tomorrow. We are having a sweet "happy home" party and celebrating out first year here. Family, friends and home. Perfect.
