I've been unpacking from our move and it's time for some new artwork....


We've just moved to a new city, and as I've been unpacking the endless boxes in our new place I see that there's room for some more art on our walls. Ava and Maddie love to paint so our walls display their canvases from over the years. My Husband likes vintage paintings from the 50's and 60's so we have a collection of large oil paintings from those decades as well.

I prefer botanical paintings, and a have a few small ones in the kitchen, but there's always room for more. Our new place is slightly bigger than our previous place, and I would like to add a couple of pieces to the bedrooms.

Art is such a personal thing, and we like to put up what speaks to us. I don't want to clutter my walls - I want to have art that's simple and quiet. I've been looking through the Art Marketplace on Minted.com and I have some possible selections for our new space:

I've just moved....


I just moved to Squamish so I'm busy unpacking and setting up our new place. I can still be reached via email and social media, but I won't be blogging as much over the next 2 weeks.

Days 19-25: #moms30for30

For me, this past week of the #moms30for30 challenge has been full of unpacking and visits with family. I'm so happy to live in the same neighbourhood as my sister, and her growing family. Grandpa lives minutes away, and he's come over to play many times  - so we could set up our new place. 

I've had more item repeats this week, but with this hot/muggy summer weather I think that it's fair to wear the tank tops more often. It was a week of neutrals with a splash of pink and purple....
