Hello readers! I’ve had so much fun sharing little design aspects of my life that I’ve decided to amp up the design of my blog itself. I would like to humbly invite you to read my blog at its new location:

This morning Tim and I got up at 6:00am to set up our first ever… YARD SALE!!!
Since we’re moving, we went through all of our stuff and thought this would be the best way to get rid of it all at once. We were right. The haul? $563.75
But it wasn’t just luck. Tim and I did a lot of prep work and a fair amount of yard sale research before launching into things.
My favorite tip source was this article by Apartment Therapy (AT). Of special significance were these tips (narrated with my thoughts)…
People, this was so the way to do things. Tim and I are pumped about the results. It’s only 2pm now. We had a yard sale, made over $500, took down our signs, took the leftovers to Good Will, had lunch, showered, and I’m writing a blog. Seriously? Do it :)
It took me forever to write this post, not because it’s so complicated but because I have no idea what this thing is called! Wall art? Art collage? I don’t know. Does it even have a name…?
Anywho, Tim and I have wanted to put something above our radio for a while. It used to look like this which was fine, but it just didn’t feel balanced with the mantle or anything else in the room really. Just a little bare… Tim came up with the idea of putting a bunch of pictures together. Something like this by the incredible Emily Henderson, but smaller:
I was totally on board, but it took a surprisingly long time to get the artwork together. Here’s our version with a closeup!!
Here’s the breakdown of stuff…
I wish I remembered all of the store names, but it’s been a while. I’ll try to do better next time :)
Either way, it’s a great little addition to our living room. I’m really excited to keep collecting more wall art. Happy-sadly Tim and I will be moving in a month into a new apartment in San Diego, CA. We can’t paint the walls there, so I’m sure we’re going to use a lot of wall art.

Sigh… if you know what it’s called let me know!
