OK, so I just have to share…. My friend sent me this pic of the gallery wall she did with all of her finds, treasures, and memories! The cool vintage furniture, the accessories, the rugs,..everything. Now if that’s not some serious flea market, junking, thrift store scoring, treasure hunting inspiration I don’t know what is! That’s Mollie Mae on the sofa and Vixey on the floor, her prize possessions… they were found and rescued too!!
She is an expert thrift-er and you can follow her on Instagram, she always has fun things for sale! @thethriftydarlin
So all my DIY friends…If you want to create your own gallery wall just do it! Don’t try to lay everything out and match each side or make a template…. just start hanging! A gallery wall should be as unique as you are! Mix it up with memories, mementos and all your fabulous finds! If you only have a few items hang them up and then start searching, you will fill your wall up in no time! See you at the next flea market!
Over the weekend amidst the scorching heat and terrible fires, I was feeling like there was no relief in site and I found myself wishing it was Fall. If you haven’t noticed….the Fall clothes have hit the stores, the Fall decor is out and yes even Christmas ornaments. Then I realized it was only 50 days away and that put me in a much better mood!
Because I am in the visual, event, product, design world I usually start thinking about the holidays in June and July anyway but this year I have decided to really celebrate Fall and officially count down to my favorite time of the year. As of today we are actually down to 45 days…yippee! That means apple picking is right around the corner.
Fall is my favorite time of year hands down. Not just because I like cooler weather but because of the feeling that comes with Fall. Its crisp, cool, cozy and warm. Its decorating, crafting, baking and cooking. It’s friends and family.
So let the countdown begin…”The Striped Barn” has officially gone Fall!
