Stunning Wall Decoration

This handmade backdrop used at a wedding I found over at Green Wedding Shoes made my heart positively leap. This is stunning. I don’t know how it was made, I thought at first cupcake wrappers but I don’t see any ruffled edges so perhaps something else… Either way, I love it and here is the link to the site where I found it in case you want to research more… I’d normally do that for you but today I’m in a rush and cannot.

Amy Borrell Inspiration

I spotted Amy Borrell’s work on Pinterest thanks to lovely Leslie who pins gorgeous things to her boards – you should totally follow her! I find so many pretty things from Leslie, she has a really great eye…

I’m using Pinterest under decor8, I just pinned a bunch of delightful edibles to my Yummy Things folder that you may like (to eat). I’m not a Pinterest addict yet though, but that could change very soon as I begin traveling over the next four weeks. When I’m on the road I have a bit more leisure time than I do in the office to be a pin-natic. :) But I digress… The point of this post is to spotlight the lovely illustrative work of Amy Borrell.

If you like what you see above, Amy has an online shop so you can own many of these as prints. Her work gets me in the mood for springtime! I love the things that springtime brings, don’t you?

Therese Sennerholt Prints

I spotted these graphic black and white prints today by Swedish designer Therese Sennerholt and thought you may really enjoy them – my favorite one is, “Sometimes the best moments in life are the simple ones. Like having cheese doodles and wine”. Another great one, “Always act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” Which is so easy for us to lose track of sometimes, isn’t it?

Which one do you fancy most?
