Spell that out for me.....

above our kitchen door....

one of my favorites...
in my workspace where I often change the phrases on my chalkboard or flip my open sign to closed....
a sign that I love....



phrase that I added to a mirror in my dining room wall - "life is measured by the moments that take our breath away"...


I try to remember to do this, even if it's only for a moment to reflect....

bible phrase that I added to a chair I did.......
Something that I have always noticed about myself is that I like letters. By that I mean I love to decorate with them. I use them all over my house, in almost every room. Sometimes I use them to spell out words or phrases and sometimes I just use an initial. I've also noticed that I'm drawn to posters or pictures that have phrases in them too. Usually it's because I like what they say or when I read them they make me think. I'm not sure why I like these things but I just know that I always have. As a result I'm always collecting letters & making or decorating them. I wonder if I'm the only one with this compulsion? I guess I will find out because I'm cleaning house & putting a bunch of them up on my Etsy store. 
I also have a similar addiction with numbers, but I will spare you guys the pictures of those ;)!

another wall in my workspace- "imagine" & "free yourself".....

















Maybe these phrases inspire me or awaken my creative side......or maybe I'm just weird.

  5. I knew I liked you but now I like you even more! Guess what I have in my hallway? The "Moments" quote and I LOVE it! My husband laughs because I love words and like to label EVERYTHING! I told him to watch out before I label his underwear drawers! I would love to purchase your silver chalkbd tray if you ever decide to sell it! Have a great week :)
