Etsy Love: Shot Wallin'

That was an awkward attempt to tie in shot callin' and ballin' with the word "wall". An average attempt if effectiveness is the measure I suppose. But oh well.

Regardless of my relatively poor attempts at humor, here I am spending hours on Etsy trying to find the perfect ways to decorate our walls when we get back to Perth. I know it is a year out, but I am already imaging my walls. That is a bit sad. But I love walls. So much potential. I keep a running list of inspiration here on my Pinterest.

In my dream home I will have a whole wall to hang my growing vintage needlework collection. A whole wall for my growing scientific image collection. A wall for Maori art. A wall for our Black and White prints of Steve McQueen and Bridgette Bardot. A space in my wardrobe for my vintage French fashion magazine covers. A wall with enough space for a giant map of the world. A wall for the vintage map collection that Rob is slowly growing. A wall for art from all my talented family. And, of course, enough room for all the photos we have been taking in our travels.

Oh, not to mention enough room for all these finds - I have already bought a bunch of them!

I loved Madeline as a child. I have this image in my head, that when we have a nursery I have a bunch of my favorite illustractions from when I was a child up on the wall. This in one of them! I also just bought a bunch of floral images from this store, can't wait to get them!

We had this up on the Candy Bar at our wedding. Not only is it a sweet lyric, it makes me think of our special day. Also, this company were so good to work with, they even made us a custom image of some love badgers!

I just love the images in this store. I love all her work. It was actually really hard to choose which one to put up here, but in the end I went for the blue. I am a blue lover.

If there is someone who doesn't love this, they are nuts. Narnia was one of my favorite books as a kid, and I wanna go!

  1. You have great taste! I like all of these, but my favourite is the Narnia one because The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe was the first book I really fell in love with as a child.

    1. Thanks Lulu! Aren't they just the best books! This would be such a neat poster for a kids room or library. Takes me right back to the trees at the back of the wardrobe!
