Gathering...

Gathering is what I do when I am planning to decorate. I like to walk around my house and look for things that are ready to be placed somewhere new, old frames and accessories that didn't have a home. I recently got a piano (yeah!) and needed to decorate the top and the space on the wall above the piano. So on my hunt I found a few fun things I had tucked away...

This huge frame was my Grandma's.
She was painter.
In her house she had a whole room full of oil paints, paint brushes,
 canvas's of all sizes and frames.
Her home always had the faint smell of turpentine and oil paints.




My Pottery Barn knockoff Hurricane jar came in handy :)
My Goodwill owl found a home.

The only thing that will get changed is the lamp
The one there right now is functional, but not pretty.
This is what I am thinking about getting from Target.
But that will have to wait for another day.



I really love the way the wall collage came together. Have you every heard of Real Deals? It is a fun little store. I went there on Saturday hoping to get a little inspiration and I did not leave empty handed. I got the keys, frame and mirror for $15.00. Oh how I love a good deal!


 The picture in the lower right is my Grandpa.
 I love this picture!!
He was a great sportsman.
He had many mounted animals and fish in his house.
