A New Job, Some Travel, and a New(ish) Gallery Wall

Gosh, it’s been such a long time since I’ve popped in here. I hope you’re doing well and enjoying Spring! I have a new gallery wall in the living room to share with you, but first, since I’ve been gone a while, I thought I would give you some life updates. Part of the reason […]

Artwork Finds

Last month I picked up a framed, vintage English poster at an estate sale. Artwork like this is why I continue to go to estate sales and walk the aisles of antique malls. You never know when you’re going to happen on something unique for your home. This piece appealed to me because I’m a sucker […]

Family Room Art

A year and a half ago I started an unintentional gallery wall around our family room TV. It began with these prints of Kansas City fountains that I found at an estate sale. And then I added a drawing of the house where Tom grew up. For a very long time, the wall stayed just like […]

A Nell Hills Visit and Entryway Artwork

Over the weekend I made a visit to the Nell Hills Briarcliff store and I texted my mom to tell her I was there. She lives in Florida full-time now so she asked me to take some pictures so she could get her Nell Hills fix. Taking pictures of a store might seem odd, but Nell Hills […]

Sunday Afternoon Art

Last Saturday we left a birthday pool party for a friend and – on a whim – drove to Lawrence to surprise our tailgating friends at […]

Warming Up a Kitchen Corner

When I was searching for artwork ideas for Lindsey’s French bistro kitchen, I ran across a vintage advertising poster print at Art.com that I just loved. I was so taken with it, in fact, that I not only recommended it to Lindsey, but ordered a framed version for my kitchen too. I chose Art.com’s Sedona Walnut frame, […]

Secondhand Prints for the Master Bedroom

Master bedrooms get ignored. That’s been my experience anyway. I tend to focus on the more public parts of the house. And then the kids’ bedrooms come next. But I’m trying to give our bedroom a little more attention. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised when these four framed prints that I found at an […]

Creating a Family Photo Wall

Sometime during the 1930’s, my grandfather, his ten siblings, and his father sat for a portrait at a Kansas City studio. They weren’t a wealthy family – they were just a few years off of their western Kansas farm and several of them were working in the Kansas City packing houses – so I’m not […]
