We have been busy decluttering and donating many items that don't have special meaning or the feel we want for our home. Stuff I was given or picked up at yard sales but really just ends up being clutter. At the same time I am working on adding accessories and art that fits 'us' and that reflect our roots, history and interests.
After adding the board and batten to our kitchen/family room wall, I decided that the long wall needed some artwork for interest. I ordered 8 x 10 enlargements of four photos I took last summer at a family member's farm. This farm in Grey-Bruce, Ontario is my husband and boy's favourite place to visit.
I'm not a professional photographer and I'm still working on figuring out my camera (hence the blurry top photo) so these photos are far from perfect but they are exactly what I envisioned for this space. They actually look way better in real life.
The gate has perfect layers of red and rusty chippiness. The barn is beautifully weathered black with the most gorgeous blue sky. I took a risk and tried my hand at photography and I'm really glad I did.
I'm sharing my new artwork with SNS at Funky Junk Interiors.
I'm also joining Frugal Friday at the Shabby Nest. There are over 400 links so be sure to stop by.
