I'm a big fan of things you can hang on the wall. Typically things you hang on the wall aren't super useful, unless you consider making your environment a much more interesting, inspiring, and happy place a useful thing...which I suppose I do. I thought I'd share some of the "useful things" we have hanging around our house! :)
This first picture is an antique framed photo I got at a yard sale this summer. I added black pointy hats to a good number of the school children here for no real good reason. Aren't they cute!
This is a painting that hung in my grandparent's house. It's quite large and has amazingly thick paint texture. I had always admired it when I was a kid and thought "wow how much paint they must have used up to create this painting with such chunky stokes". It now proudly hangs in our hallway.
This painting too was from my grandparent's. And jovial scene...it reminds me that you don't need TV or laptops to have fun!
I found this guy along with the school children in the first photo and gave him a bit of a makeover too with a paper hat and mustache. ...And I named him Fred.
And of course his friend James, who Ben keeps thinking is a girl for some reason. I gave him cat ears and a mask.
You may have seen this in past posts. This collection of frames a images hangs above the couch in our living room. And seeing this photo is making me realize that they've gotten a little wonky over time. I think a straightening up is in order....or should I leave them wonky and cute?
This too is in our living room and is probably my favorite little vignette in the whole house.
Tramp art and an old owl on a skull illustration with cardboard faux bois frame hide an old phone jack in the kitchen.
There's a bit of wall space in the master bath that I've been very slowly adding to. I'd like to find a few more small landscape paintings to go with the first one...
Some framed greeting cards in the bedroom. I'm a big fan of framing greeting cards.
I hope you enjoyed some of our wall art! I'll have to do another post on the rest...and I've got lots more ideas for new wall art in the new year! Fun! :)
