{ Vintage Wallpaper }

Wallpaper seems to be back in a big way! Covering even one wall makes not only a bold statement but can create depth and add great texture to any space. Can't commit to papering your walls? Wallpaper has many great uses beyond that of walls. I use it to wrap gifts, as drawer liners, and as background paper for my office bulletin board. Finding the perfect pattern can turn into a bit of a treasure hunt. That's why I'm excited to share my discovery of an online vintage wallpaper vendor. Johnny- Tapete sells beautiful bold floral, baroque, and geometric authentic vintage wallpaper. This online shop sells paper by the roll or by the meter and you can even purchase up to five wallpaper samples to try before you buy! I couldn't just choose one, so here are a few of my favorite prints! Definitely not your grandma's wallpaper....okay maybe. Enjoy!

{ Fresh Fruits }

One of the things I like best about summer is the abundance of fresh fruits that can be found in local markets or road-side stands. Not only do they symbolize all things summer to me but there shape, color, and imperfections also offer inspiration for me to keep on creating! Enjoy these new photos in my Etsy shop. Have a joyous fruit filled weekend!
