Unique and Practical Wall Art

Hello everyone!

How has your week been?  I hope it has been good.  I'm excited about this holiday weekend since it marks the beginning of July and it is one of my favorite months of the year because it isn't as busy as many others.  The weather is usually nice and my schedule isn't so slammed.  June is always hectic and expensive!  Bye Bye June.  Ha!  

Speaking of expensive, have any of you noticed some changes over at PicMonkey?  They added a new feature for saving photos, called Hub.  It took me forever to figure out that I don't have to sign up for it and can now use "export" to save my photos to my computer like I usually do.  I think they purposely set it up like that to confuse people in to thinking they had to sign up and pay money to use their site!  I figured it out after about 30 min of being frustrated and actually signing up for their trial.  Then, I cancelled it once I realized how their site looked different and "export" had then replaced "save".  Did you catch that too?  

Well enough of my ranting.  I just thought I would pass that on in case you were experiencing the same thing.  

I wanted to share some different forms of wall art that I'm using now.  First, I found these adorable flowers from Hobby Lobby that you can hang on the wall!  I hung them in my powder room.

Kubu Chairs in the Kitchen

Hello everyone!

How has your week been so far?  I hope it has been a good one.  My dog is feeling better now.  We think he became overly stressed from being boarded while we were gone on vacation.  We celebrated my husbands birthday last weekend and now we're getting ready to celebrate Father's Day this weekend.  June is such a busy month! 

You may recall that I purchased some kubu chairs from one of my favorite stores, Linen & Flax Barn.  Well, here they are!  I placed them in my kitchen (after a brief trial in my dining room).

Cane Wingback Chair

Hello everyone!

It's been a while since I last posted!  I've been gone on vacation and then came back home to a sick doggie.  I also spent a day helping out my mom now that she's back home from the hospital. I've also been getting my house back in order and getting back in the gym.  Whew!  It feels good to get back to a normal schedule though. 

I've been meaning to share this cane wingback chair that I bought from Joss and Main several weeks ago.  I intended for it to go in my family room, but then put it in the sitting room when I saw that the finish was lighter than expected.  But, it eventually made its way to the family room after I had a light bulb moment.  I used some dark wax to darken the finish.  And voila!  I'm happy with it now!
