Art Wall and surprise on ebay..

Hi all hope your ok and not too soggy in this weather..hopefully it will stop soon..but veggies won't grow without it.
I was pleasantly surprised yesterday afternoon..an old Amiga game sold for over £10..was shocked it went for that much..but it all helps..the parcel will be sent via courier..
So i told you all a while ago that i wanted to create an Art Wall in the girls room..we want to show their work and also make a blank wall look good.






As you can see its a work in progress..i let the girls choose their own pieces to put up and frame..am pretty sure it will expand to other wall as well..i think its nice to look back on how they have changed styles and started to be creative on their own..kind of a growing wall..from stick figures to lovely water colours..i have a few more pictures to put up later on.
How about you ladies have you saved art work and used it to decorate.
take care

  1. Sara, the Art wall looks great, how the girls have come on. I still have some pictures from the grandchildren in my Treasure Box and periodically I love looking at them.

    A few Christmases ago Heather (who is very artistic) did 2 drawings for us, for Jess it was a portrait of himself and for me 2 polar bears (I love polar bears) and we have these on the landing upstairs in silver frames.

    Captain Pilchard is good, thank you for asking, unfortunately I think he is blind in his left eye. He still comes round fors at least 2 meals a day, and when the weather is bad he takes shelter in his little house.

    Love to you all

  3. We don't have an art wall (good idea by the way!) but I have over the years made several photo collages like you have. They are great to look back on as they have a mix of photos in there that you might not usually have out.
    I have only just started following you, and would love you to pop over and see me at mine! I'm a newbie, so bear with me, but all newcomers most welcome :-)
