Decorating our cottage has been more challenging than I imagined. College posters no longer cut it, and real art is likely above my head … and my price range. This all means that we have many-an-empty-wall as I wait to fill them, hoping to stumble across something fantastic that I can afford and frame. Luckily, I’ve had a bit of luck recently …
Happy birthday to me! This stationary set went on sale at Rifle Paper Co. last week and I scooped it up. I’ll frame a set of four, and covet the extras for extra-special mailings. And since I was already paying for shipping, I went ahead and bought this singular card to frame as well:
I’m a big fan of botanical charts, and this should satisfy my lust until I can afford something a bit larger. (Get a matching one here).
Another thing I love is Scherenschnitte – also known as paper cutting. I came across this piece at an estate sale earlier this year for less than a $1, frame and all (I know, crazy):
And recently found this commerical piece in – of all places – the greeting card aisle of Target. I L-O-V-E the folksy look of it, although I might slice the “Engaged” header off the top … I think the message is clear without it.
Upon review, this post should probably be named “How Katie Decorates Her House with Stationary and Dead People’s Things” … but we already knew this to be true.
