Interesting Ways to Decorate Your Walls

I am a BIG fan of textural - 3 dimensional - repurposed artwork.  When you are broke like me, you have to come up with some unique and thrifty ways to decorate.  Every time I am out thrifting I come across crochet pot holders, old plates, embroidery hoops and vintage fabrics.  These are usually pretty cheap too! Here are some of my most favorite wall decorating ideas!

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!  I did a tutorial awhile back.  Find it here.

This would be a great way to display some of grandma's old pot holders.

 I love the way the antlers take up the empty space because of the tall ceiling. 

 Perfect for a craft room and a wonderful way to add a splash of color!

Good use for old drawers.  They kind of remind me of shadow boxes.

Old license plates would be adorable in a little boys room.

Favorite Treasuries

This week I have been super busy creating treasuries for a couple of the treasury teams that I participate in.   I usually theme my treasuries around my favorite items and colors.  I really love making treasuries!  Here are a few of my favorites....

Mother's Day

I hope that all of my momma readers had a wonderful Mother's Day on Sunday.  I had a great day! My husband and I did some yard work and got our gifts together for our moms.  We decided to give them each a planter with some pretty succulents.  My sweet daughter gave me a cute card, some chocolates and purple flowers.  This was the first year that she was old enough to pick out a gift and write me something, which was extra special! Now I am just trying to get caught up with packaging up all of my shops sold items!

Mid Century Modern Eye Candy

Today has been dreary and cold here in Texas.  It's pretty unusual to have 40 degree weather in May-especially in Texas!  To brighten my day- I cruised the web looking at mid century eye candy.  Each piece can be found and purchased on Etsy! You are welcome!  I wish that I could have it all.

Even your pets can have style!  I think my cats, Jack and Isabelle would love these cool pet accessories!

Here are some items that are available in my shop @ A2ndlifeVintage
