Art in my bedroom

I aluded to an unfinished project on the blue wall behind our bed.

It’s growing and I just wanted to share with you the updates :)

I love quotes and have collected them since my teens… So I printed some of my favourites and a few Etsy buys. Painted some vintage frames white from charity shops for $1-3 each. I either mounted them plain or with some of my pretty paper. Also included some pretty special bits and pieces.

My husband got me that pretty pink French cafe setting card for my birthday one year and it’s remained my favourite card from him. I bought some quotes letterpress from Etsy seller letterarypress and mounted the SUCCESS one with a pretty paper doily.

I got the tiniest and sweetest ACEO of a bird in its nest from Etsy seller CafeBaudelaire it’s such a pretty artwork with a French saying A chaque oiseau son nid est (to each bird its own nest is beautiful).

I love the quote from where “there’s no place like home” comes from:
