My home = Me

It’s been said, more than a few times, that our homes are reflections of who we are. As in, the current state of your home is a mirror of your current state of mind, what’s going on, on the inside. If you’re honest with yourself, would you agree with that statement? This maaaay or may…

What Makes a Great Gallery Wall?

The gallery wall is a great way to fill a large empty wall space in your home or office with art work and mementos you love. I recently mentioned in a video (on Facebook and instagram) that I finally bought frames  for many of the pieces I had been collecting over the years. (Thanks to…
