Last week we finally took the time to give a go at taking family photos for our Christmas card. The Mr sets up the shot then my sweet sister was kind enough to play photographer and push the button over and over. Ha. Some years we hope to get just one and this year we succeeded with multiples! Yay! Here is one that I liked, but didn't quite make the cut.
We also managed to get a few without the kiddos. I am kind of still smitten with him after 9yrs of being together. Although I am sure that will never change.
During our Disney trip the Mr surprised me with silhouettes that were hand cut of both Ellie and KJ. It took me some time to figure out where I wanted to hang them, but settled on the tv room. I love the way they look against our dark walls. It really is an amazing process it took to create these. A man actually used scissors and cut every detail while staring at the profile of Ellie and KJ. It really was awe inspiring. Would this not be spectacular to do at a wedding? Anyhow, here are my new treasures.
And here is the master at work...
This morning I spent my time framing some prints for an office install that I have in just a bit. Nothing like pulling together last minute details. Ha. I may instagram the process some. The owner had some gorgeous pieces already, it just needed to feel finished so that is where I came in. I adore using treasured items then making them feel new with a few or many additions. Really depends what the space calls for. Unfortunately the space will not be "done" until after Christmas. The new sofa we put on order would be back ordered due to the fabric we choose. It will be worth the wait though!
Some things just belong together. I think my much too loved and worn plaid would blend nicely into this room from Lonny. What do you think? It also makes me think it's time to bring back my weekly room + outfit. We will see.
