DIY: Frame Decals

Danielle Thompson is a super creative decor8 reader who asked if she could show us some custom vinyl decals that she made for her son’s nursery. This is super cute, you can get all the instructions here on her blog.


Nice work, Danielle!

Wall Decals: Where Do You Stick Yours?

I’ve blogged a lot about wall decals but I often wonder, do you buy them? Do you like them? What are your thoughts? I’d love to know where you stick yours, too. I have one tiny bird on my door and a few others on my window, but that’s about it. I tend to like them on windows, tiles, and appliances though I know the suggested spot is on the wall.


Elaine and Nell from Elly Nelly sent over some of their latest designs for us to enjoy today, you can see more in their store. Thanks ladies for the email!

Happy Mail :)

Don’t you love that anticipation after you’ve ordered something special, knowing that anytime your little bundle will arrive addressed to you? My order arrived from Restless Things and I just adore every bit of it…


…I had to share these pretty prints with you.

Thumbtack Press {gorgeousness}

Here are some fabulous prints that caught my attention today over at Thumbtack Press, who happens to have a very strong collection of prints online featuring the work of some of my favorite artists. I’m hoping that you’ll enjoy them along with me. :)

I adore Bride Diving by Penelope Dullaghan and Gossip by Chris Silas Neal. I always seem to go for images of girls jumping, not because I secretly have thoughts of suicide or anything (he he), more because I am constantly jumping into new things and love the thrill of just getting involved in something I’m passionate about. Also shown above is Bluebell by Lilly Piri and Presagio di Primavera by Gianluca Fol?. Drool.

Long Beach Shoreline by Shiho Nakaza, I Miss You Already by Jared Drew Moody, Angel by Irana Douer, and This Flooded World by Sarajo Frieden. Isn’t Irana amazing?

The Great Flood Series (set of 3) by Oksana Badrak, Spam One-Liners: Happy Life by Linzie Hunter (fun!), HiFi by Chris Silas Neal, and India Dawn by Oksana Badrak.

And finally, Don’t You Leave Me Here by Matthew Woodson. Isn’t this a melancholy, tender, emotionally charged glimpse into the life of the modern relationship? We all have fears of being abandoned at times and I think artist Matthew Woodson did such a great job capturing this emotion here.
