Another Addition to My ABC Art Collection!

Last year, when future ex came to get His Things, it left a telling series of gaps in my house. Most notably were those on the walls. My sister likes to point out how this shows that our house was decorated to suit him. Now I had the freedom to decorate to suit me and my boys. And by "me and my boys", I mean me. Because, let's face it, I highly doubt I'll be putting up much Pokemon decor.

When I lamented the myriad blank spaces on my walls, Wanda was the first to offer artistic filling. She sent me a print of her Girl in White Dress painting. I finally framed it a couple of weeks ago and she is hanging in my living room. When I get a functional camera, I will share her glory with you.

A few months ago, one of my other ABCs (Awesome Blogger Chicks) posted a picture post about things she found beautiful. I fell in love with a cow picture she had and asked her how much she'd charge for the digital image. Being that she's one of the Awesome, she just gave it to me. Because, like Wanda, Allie rocks.

Today, I just got my 11x14 print of her cow picture in the mail - I ordered it through Shutterfly. And I have to tell you, I was not hopeful that I would get a good quality print for such a tiny amount of money. I was happily proven wrong. They gave me a wonderful quality print. So now I can't WAIT to take it to the framer's.

Between all you amazing chicks here on my blog and that wonderful little Swedish shop I adore so much, I'm filling up the gaps on my walls.

I too enjoy that particular painting of Wanda's and no house should have such painful empty spaces...least of all, you.

Here's to making your house filled with only the creatve things that you like and bring you joy :)

love to you sweet girl,

Oh, that cow picture is super cool!

You are welcome to enlarge pictures of my children for your walls. (Wall-size prints should be sufficient, I think.) Just trying to help. ;)

Looking forward to seeing the new and improved house--I might even drive ALL THE WAY over there!

I'm so glad you are getting your walls filled with things that will bring you joy.

You can call it ego, but I love my paintings and they hang all over my house ~~ they are like my children. The girl in the white dress hangs above my bed, the Wolf in the living room, the truck in our computer room and my sunflowers in the kitchen. Every wall needs a painting of your choice.

Love and Hugs
Can't wait to see all your new wall hangings.
