We got it.

So, I have a big house to fill with art so I can't buy every print I want on etsy right away.
This is a fun, very inexpensive way to decorate and have your art say something personal.
Yes, my song lyrics are from Judy Garland and Bryan Adams and yes, they both mean a lot to me. What an utterly strange coupling of two performers. So go my tastes. :) Gabe is a musician so he doesn't really even hear lyrics. The actual music is what rules his ears. To me, lyrics are everything.

Anyway, these Ikea frames were about $3 each, the iron on letters were $3, and the backing paper was $.59 so you have a framed piece of "art" for under $7. All you have to do is pick a quote, line your letters up, and iron them right on. Easy absolute peasy!















Wearing:
Sweater: c/o Willow and Clay
Butterfly Dress: Fancy Treehouse
Pumps: c/o Nine West


Hope you enjoy your weekend! Anyone gong to any fun parties/pumpkin patches/etc?
We're doing fun house stuff like always....maybe some painting. Last night we went out with friends to Indian food and it was such a treat. I hadn't had Indian in so long. It's one of my faves.
Ok, have a nice Saturday!

  8. look at you in your new house, with your new art prints, you created, showing off your terrific outfit! super sweet snow white on the computer. as rule all the musicians i know, pay attention to music more than lyrics. i do both. then again, i see myself more as a writer than a musician. happy fun house day!
