Putting the pieces together in my living room

I’m making a huge wall art piece out of these $2 tin signs I bought at Michaels.

I don’t feel like I’m making much work progress on my house, especially when people ask me.  Decorating on top of keeping it clean is just too much for me. LOL.  I have never been particularly DIY about home stuff (hanging pictures, shelving, building stuff). So, I always have to rely on William to help me.  If it’s not simple and basic, I usually don’t attempt it, but I’m trying to break through that.

99¢ sign I purchased at a local store called Misc Trading Company.

Here’s a couple prints I picked up at IKEA and Tuesday Morning. 

I have been picking up pieces here and there.  I want to do my living room in all typography!  I guess I must be onto something cause I recently saw Target had a typography home section too.  Anyway, I want to make it cool and not cheesy. Type is very much my thing and I want to embrace it. I think I have what it takes to make it look cool, it’s just taking a while to visualize the setup.  I have a very large living room with a lot of open space.

Here’s a vintage metal O (I think it went with a Chevron sign) that I picked up at here in Fresno. I had it resting next to a mirror and noticed that it looked really cool when you made the middle of the O a mirror. I like it do you?

Picking up lots of letters and numbers in different sizes and shapes as I find them.

Wanted to share with you a few of the type pieces I have picked up and am building upon. Sorry about the picture quality. I only get around to blogging at night.  It’s going to take a while longer, but I guess any home DIY/decorating job doesn’t happen overnight.  I’m just taking it one thing at a time!

A Chanel 5 advertisement I liked mixed in with a car medallion from The Recycling Ethic and a couple of pieces I picked up in Utah during the Snap Conference.

Until next time Swellions!

A red couch moment

black cat on sofa

I’ve been noticing that my cat loves sitting right in the middle of the couch lately. She is such a peculiar, unpredictable girl. She really has no rhyme or reason. I decided to take a quick pic of her tonight to show you her lounging in her spot.

A quick post tonight. Had some work to do and watched a little TV. Kelly Osbourne was really good on Dancing with the Stars. She has a natural talent.

Did want to share some Halloween inspiration that I love. Enjoy!

– Love all this orange, black,white, and grey compiled inspirational images on Twoila.com.

– Graphic goodness postcards on Artjunk. Feels my heart with Halloween joy. What a great recycled magazine idea!

– Lovely cupcake canvases on Catherine Holman’s blog.

– What a cute idea for a little girl’s jeans! Found in All Sweet’s Etsy shop.

– And a super cute cover for a lollipop… an Amigurumi bear in Halloween colors! from Amigurumi Kingdom’s Flickr Stream.

Hope you have a great Wednesday!

Until next day Swellions!


P.S. If you haven’t checked out the crazy red dust storm photos in Sydney, you should. Totally bizarre!
