new wall art <3

I have noticed that I start a lot of my posts with, "So..." soooo I am going to try and not do that sooo much (ha).Last night, I finally finished my new "wall art" for the living room renovation :)  I am very excited about it.  Adam "likes it alot" but does not love it.  I, on the other hand, looooove it!  I was inspired by all of the lovely embroidery hoops that my sister gifted me and I had been wanting to create a wall of fabric samples and 1+1= perfect!

I even placed the one that I purchased from Color Party in there too!!  Now I am working on a place to put these lovely Ashley G. ceramic pieces and the free print that came along with them :) What about above the rocking chair?  A little montage above it?  That might be 'just the ticket!'

And what about this amazing print for The Black Apple.

I am in love with it but it is still sitting in the packaging because I am not sure where the perfect place for it will be yet :)
Yesterday was spent adding a million more things to our garage sale (seriously).  My sister was kind enough to donate a lot of her cuuuute crafty things, more home decor, clothes and BRAND NEW shoes to Adam and I's couch cause :)  As you can see in my previous post, we are selling the old couch so we better make enough money for the "dream couch" because it's been three days without the couch, and that is torture!  I will definitely keep you all posted!

***Oh and... today will be the last day that you can enter my patchwork pillow give-a-way!  I will be drawing a name tomorrow, after the garage sale :)  This give-a-way is just one small way that I can thank all of my amazing, inspiring, kind, thoughtful, wonderful readers.  Your comments, REALLY, are the only reason I blog :)  I love all of you and I feel very blessed to be able to give back to you by offering this little give-a-way

<3 you all
