HOLY SMOKES!!!





I can not believe how a little old thing like a black and white giveaway will bring you guys out of hiding!

I think from now on all my giveaways will be black and white, I will only post about black and white.....all other colors will be dead to me.

Of course I am right there with you.

It was a beautiful weekend in Atlanta...back to spring again.  My sisters came to stay with me so it was food and shopping.  

The two days before they came I decided to TEAR up my house.  Seriously I wish I had taken pictures of what a wreck it was in the middle.

Just dismantling one room caused an uproar in my brain......

Moving chairs around.....

AND of course getting 2 new pillows......

I also had these framed.

This one....found the frame at Goodwill and had the image.  I tried to go to Hobby Lobby because people are always going on about how cheap it is to get mats cut.  Well that may be true but none of the ready made mat colors would work.  Either to yellow or to white.

 And this one...again, already had the frame and image.  Getting ready to make a few changes to my LR.

Maybe a wall  like this.....my inspiration....


Adding flowers.....

This painting was also completed for a project at Lake Burton.

Gorgeous huh???  One of Andrea Costa's .  She is usually at Scott's in the South building.

Well...since I was SO busy with family this weekend...today is going to be a ball-buster.  I have a list that is scaring me.


Hope you y'all are getting ready to slap Monday clear into space.

Etsy is another great source for picture mats. I just ordered a bunch for cheap and although the color wasn't right, I just spray painted them!

That Goodwill frame is amazing.

Love the inspiration wall. I cut my own mats with one of those mat cutting contraptions that I got on sale for about $60. It is worth it if you are going to cut a lot of mats. I like Hobby Lobby's 50 % off open back frames. It makes it super easy to do your own custom framing. Now I just need to get away from this thing and frame some stuff that has been sitting around for 6 months.

I feel your pain in full color...I get one little tiny little itty bitty new item and it takes me days to decorate around it. That's what make me the happiest!

Your day ahead sounds like mine and I better get my butt off this chair and into high gear!! Love the inspiration wall and of course pretty flowers always brighten a room, I added some flower power to my own home this weekend!! Good luck with your day....

Everything looks fab as always! I adore Andrea's work, too! So gorgeous. My list is longer than I care to admit. Must get cracking on it! xo

I love how your images were framed. Cant wait to see what you will be doing.

Lisa Mende Design said...

Wow, your giveaway sure brought out a lot more comments that mine! Blew out off the sidewalk and I gave away 5 things! Guess it has something to do with the fact that you have almost 1000 followers and i have almost 100? Or may be that you are just a better blogger all around! Anyho, way to go girl...I'll keep plugging away and hoping I get a little of your mojo one of these days...It would help if I would photograph and post some of my projects I know! I just might have a surprise for you...if i ever get my monday post done! would happen if i would quit reading blogs and focus on mine!!!! happy monday sherika

Matting and framing are so expensive. Finding frames at Goodwill is brilliant! I'm going to have to remember that.
