so the other day when i posted that story/poem my guest wrote for me i paired it with some pictures i took standing on my back porch. nothing fancy.

just the tops of leafless trees set against a grey-ish blue sky.

i took a total of nine pictures and had them printed at wal-mart as 8x10s. the cost was around $20. i filled up my frames (which i got at the family dollar for like $6 per frame – i know a steal – and they look super expensive).

i was actually nervous about doing this. i just wasn’t sure how it would look.

but i’m so glad i took the risk. i think for this time of year it couldn’t be more perfect. and i’m really digging the grey-ish blue against the orange-ish yellow walls.

it’s so light and clean. perfect for january. these won’t stay here forever. that’s what i love about this wall art. i can change up the photos whenever i get tired of it (which happens often). and it only costs me twenty bucks each time.

and the images are so peaceful, yet really interesting.

Inspired By Charm


and i’m always amazing how much my guests like to look at these images. people are constantly commenting on them. whether they like them or not, at least they are talking about them. and that’s what art is all about. right?

Inspired By Charm


so be confident! go take some pictures of some random stuff. get them printed and hang them up. you may just surprise yourself.

and it’s the final day to enter the giveaway if you haven’t already done so. good luck!!

    Your photos are wonderful – trees are a favorite of mine no matter the season!
    And, I have a wall that changes seasonally with my very own photos too! Though, I feel like I have to admit, I took one last winter that stayed thru the summer and was seasonally appropriate once again this year – ha!
