Modern Twist!!!

A few weeks ago I saw a project Melanie from Plum Cushion did for her living room and decided to try it myself!!!!

Bought two pieces of this marbleized paper...
only $4.50 a piece!!!

Traveled to Ikea to buy two of these frames...
$19.99 a piece

Removed the mattes...

Had my assistance (aka my husband) cut the paper to fit the frames...

AND here they are not hung yet but I LOVE them!!!
Going in my guest bedroom, think it's a great way to achieve the look of modern art without the price tag.

A Gold Dream!!!

I have seen this gorgeous gold vessel several times during my daily hunts!
There is just something about it I am drawn to--maybe it's the abstract shape or divine gold color.
Whatever it is I must have one!!!

Check out the shop Up In The Air Somewhere on Etsy...
