New Living Room Wall

 I'm sloooooowly working on redoing some things in my house.  It's been almost ten years, and the frantic decorating I did when I moved in....with things like this.....
 Need to change, mostly for my sanity.  I precariously framed the above pictures when I moved in, and they are wobbley, and dusty, and they were pretty much any picture that could fit in the frame on the day I put them together.  I like pictures, but I decided this hodge podge of frames just wasn't really me anymore.  This random hodge podge of recycled items is....
I have lots more to do, but it was amazing how many random pieces I could find around my house-half done projects, once dreamed up ideas, or random bits and pieces from my past.  I may eventually put a vinyl quote on the wall in the middle of the frame....but that's what 2022 is for, right?  I moved the book wreath from my room to the living room...mostly so I can find an excuse to redo pieces of my room as well.  I used an old crate I bought for a buck as a shelf using this same process, and even put these random quilt blocks in a jar on the shelf along with some books I have from my Grandfather, and one of the photos of him from my 'old' wall arrangment.  My favorite piece is the old window.  I have three more old windows to incorporate in some way in the house, or in a project, but this was my favorite.  I snagged in at an antique store a few summers back while visiting the Midwest.  I love that I can change the pictures around as I feel like it.  I just found three fun memories and printed them off, but as memories are made in the coming year, hopefully I can move those magnets around and display a few more memories.  The yellow frame has yet to be filled, but I have a few ideas.....Next up....I want to work on some throw pillows for the couch, maybe a blanket, and the mantel, and...and....and...
