Peace!


I owe a great big thank you to Amy at Field Trip and Melaine at My Sweet Savannah!!! I entered a giveaway on Melaine's blog a few weeks ago for one of Amy's prints and I was so thrilled to win. I NEVER win anything so I anxiously checked the mail daily to see my new artwork!

I chose Amy's PEACE print, knowing that I wanted to place it in Wren's room. So of course I love the bird reference with the origami cranes.

I really wanted it to make a statement and feel very whimsical, so I decided to use a frame I had stashed away for yet to be determined projects.

I painted the frame white and distressed it, then lined the back with some left over wall paper.

And finally mounted Wren's darling new print!

I am hoping that it will give us some PEACE and quiet at bedtime, as lately Wren has not been a very cooperative participant of the bedtime routine...

I also found a little time to finally update the Wren's Room link under the "Our Renovations" tab. I am hoping that I can finally update the Master link soon as well as add the family room and living room transformations, so stay tuned!

Thanks again Amy and Melaine!!!

and i LOVE the idea of using a larger frame and lining the back with something - a cheap and super cute "statement piece"

Holly, it looks great! Love the idea to use wallpaper as a matting material!

Oh, and if you could please stop finding all the gorgeous, antique frames in Edmonton and leave some for the rest of us, we would greatly appreciate it! :)

Such a lovely nursery, I believe that might be the same crib (Jenny Lind) that I had my babies in 30 years ago?
