Art is Awesome

Well hello there! How are you? Me, I am amazing because yesterday Taylor and I HUNG UP OUR FREAKING ARTWORK!!!
The sense of accomplishment is almost deafening. Does that saying make sense? No, but I don’t care because some of our rooms have actual art on the walls!!!
Oh, how I had missed our paintings, photographs, and various other pieces. It is so good to see them all again. Like old friends coming home.
I thought we might have too much art for the house (we have a TON of artwork and I had previously had to stop buying things I found), however, even though this house is smaller than our old house we have more hangable wall space!!! That makes me excited, y’all! Art buying can re-commence!
-as a side note, I love to scour thrift stores for art, and I love art that is made by our many extremely talented friends. It’s not like I’m crazy spending a ton of money, but the art we hang up is special to us.-
We are not nearly finished, but this wonderful house is really becoming our home. Next up, Josephine’s room. I can hardly wait!
And now for a few of my favorite areas in our home:
