organising our art



It feels so good to have accomplished something around the house today. I finally put some hooks up in the kitchen to hang all the kiddy art on, thanks to a little inspiration from Soulemama's book and my good friend Lissa. I always hate the thought of putting holes in the walls, since we spent so long painting them...but it did look good once it was all done. I stretched the string from hook to hook, and threaded a whole bunch of mini pegs across. Now we have the perfect spot to display all those colourful creations!



While we were pinning up all the paintings, we came across a bag of gumnuts/pine cones/seed pods. We collected these a while back to make a natural mobile, but somewhere never found the time to make it. So we did that too, and hung it from one of the beams. Its so simple, but the beauty of the natural objects speak for themself and somewhere I find myself endless staring at them.

Every morning I eagerly open Omi Creates hoping that something new and lovely has been posted. Again, I was not disappointed! What a brilliant idea. You keep me inspired.

I love how you hung the pinecones! We have a lot of them in our house too, and this seems like a great way to display them. Thanks for the idea.

The picture hanging idea is just lovely. The children have so many watercolor paintings and I just don't know what to do with them all.
