DIY | Picture Frame an Easier Way

Decide what you want to showcase and where.  Photos, art, unique frames, eclectic object…or a mix?  The key is focusing on a purpose, a specific ”highlight” in the collage; for example, this may be one large piece, a grouping of like items, or the simple fact of pairing balanced, symmetric pieces. Above is my own Gallery photo wall at my place which me and my husband did one weekend using black & white IKEA Ribba series frames. We also added our favorite quote got it printed and stuck it on the wall.

Hanging multiple framed pictures so that they look orderly can be a challenge. The secret is to divide and conquer: Mark a horizontal midline on the wall, and hang all pictures above or below it.

The line can be delineated with a strip of painters’ tape and then removed once the pictures are in place. To unify the group, choose a single color for all frames and, if displaying photographs, stick with either all black-and-white or all color shots.

Picture Hanging How-To: 

◆Unfurl a length of painters’ tape horizontally across a wall, making sure tape is level.

◆Determine nail placement for frames above the mid line by measuring from the bottom of a frame to its bracket.

◆For frames below the midline, measure from the top of the frame to the bracket. Use additional strips of tape, positioned vertically, to create even spaces between pictures arranged next to each other.

◆When all frames are in place, remove tape from wall.

Letter from a Mother to a Daughter ❤

Something I don’t usually post here, but I have seen this going around and it is very much worth a share! Mother to Daughter ❤

This is a repost from Spring in the Air 

Letter from a Mother to a Daughter: “My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way… remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionaly lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you… my darling daughter.”

my LOVE | Happy Anniversary <3

Before I met my husband, I’d never fallen in love. I’d stepped in it a few times. – Rita Rudner

One year ago today I married my best friend and the love of my life. WOW. Can you believe it’s been one year already?! 365 days, and I still feel like a newlywed, I still blush when my hubby says my name, and I still get butterflies when he’s about to walk in the door. I truly am the luckiest girl in the world and I count my blessings every single day.

One day a year to recognize 364 other days of putting up with me, it doesn’t seem fair. Thank you for working so hard and putting up with me.

I guess time flies when you are having fun, and it’s been a blast being your wife!

We’ve both grown together through these years. I am looking forward to maturing even more with you ❤

No matter what happens I know that I can depend on you. Maybe that’s why I do so many stupid things 🙂 . Happy Anniversary Bebo Volim te najvise!

If you’ve followed my blog for at least a little while now, then you’ve probably noticed that I have quote of a week. Personally, I know that I can always use a little extra inspiration and it seems that a lot of you feel the same way. There is something so extraordinary about identifying with the wisdom of others and using it as a driving force in one’s life. Quite often, the quote that I choose for each particular week is reflective of what is going on in my life at that moment. This Quote below will tell you a little more about me.

On another note: the last few weeks have been bad for blogging…I just have too many distractions and happenings at the moment. I hope you all have a great weekend see you all soooooonnnnnn……….

Red is the most arrogant, attention-grabbing, and energetic color of the spectrum. In terms of temperature, it is the warmest color.  Emotionally, we relate red to love and passion.  It is the color that excites us most and makes us take notice.
