This does sort of have something to do with frugality.
Bear with me.
As you know, Lisey has moved into Zoe’s room, and we needed some new wall art for her (the baby pictures weren’t going to work!).
So, yesterday I laid out a bunch of frames on the living room floor and Lisey and I decided on a visually pleasing arrangement, shape-wise.
Then we scrolled through my picture files to find photos of things that Lisey loves (the beach, afternoon tea, Converse), and made them all black and white so the photo wall would have a cohesive look.
(And also because black and white is veddy classy.)
When we got to that last vertical picture frame on the right, though, we got stuck. What to put there?
That’s when we realized that of course, Lisey’s hamsters needed to be represented on her photo wall.
So, that’s why we had a little hamster photo session yesterday.
The cute is so out of control.
(By the way, these are dwarf hamsters and they are crazy fast, so that’s why Joshua and Lisey are holding them so snugly.)
I did get all of the frames hung up on Lisey’s wall, and she’s super pleased about it.
I’m delighted that were able to decorate her wall with something that’s very Lisey, and I’m also pleased that we were able to use frames we already had (yay for not spending!) and were able to fill them with very inexpensive art (the only cost was the ink and photo paper.)
I wish I had a photo of the finished wall, but alas, I don’t at the moment. I promise I’ll include one when we do a tour of Lisey’s room.
P.S. Food Waste Friday is over at Simply Being Mum today. And on another food waste note, Zero Waste Week 2013 is all about food waste this year. I’ll tell you a little more about that next week, but you can go check it out right here.
