Feature Friday- Diana's Originals

*Disclaimer: All images in this post are from Diana Hall at Dianasoriginals. I claim no credit or responsibility for any of the art or photography in this post. Also, she's in a similar situation as me with her camera, so she wanted to apologize for the poor quality of her webcam pictures!

Feature Friday today is on a wonderful Etsy seller, Diana from DianasOriginals. She has such a variety of products to choose from, from crocheted swimwear to paper lamps. She's been an awesome to work with. To change it up a bit, instead of doing a short interview, I just asked her to tell us a little about herself. This is what she had to say:
This is a picture of the Powerpuff
Girls that Diana painted on a friend's wall
"My Etsy shop is called Diana's Originals, mostly because I love the uniqueness of original and handmade. I have always been that way. I get inspired by anything at the right time. I used to make my daughter dresses from boys t-shirts and paint and glitter them. She loved them so we did socks, hair barrettes and anything else I could glitter and paint! And my son loves video games and cartoons so I painted Mario and Spongebob on a little piece of his wall, and made him hanging felt characters. I've done Bernstein Bears and Toontown for them also. I guess most of my inspiration is from them, to make special, unique things for them to enjoy! Looking back, I've always used my imagination to make a nice home and nice things for my family, sheets for curtains, baskets for tables, gift wrap for wallpaper, etc. I could go on and on lol. I also painted for friends for a while. Years ago I found Etsy from a PBS show I watch, Knit and Crochet Today, and was so glad I did! It gave me even more of a reason to create and I love being in the company of so many talented artists and crafters."
What a cool mom! Diana, you did an amazing job on your friends' walls, and if/when I ever have kids I hope someone will come paint their walls for me!

And now on to the goodies:

Diana's lamps were the first thing that drew my attention, so I think it fitting that I start with a lamp here too. This is one of my favorite of everything Diana has listed. I would love to buy this one day for my living room! Its so simple and casual. It has a basal base and fabric shade.

{ Source }
This has a paper shade. It has painted metallic trees on it, and small holes that look like stars on the wall when the lantern is on. Diana says these (and other similarly painted lamps) are her current favorite item because of how they sparkle when lit. Isn't it pretty!? And how much fun would a couple of these be for a party!?

{ Source }
This is a gorgeous night light or small lamp that Diana hand-scuplted from clay. I bet this casts some wicked cool shadows! How fun for a kids room! Or any room really!

{ Source }
And because y'all know I can't resist a painting, here is one she has listed in her shop. Its done in vivid acrylics and represents a neighborhood she used to live in. Makes me want to move, its beautiful!

Diana has also been so sweet as to offer you wonderful readers a giveaway! She's donating a completely original lamp that she hadn't even listed for sale yet! Its made from thick scrapbook paper, with hand-painted gold scrolls on the outside, and 4 wooden feet. It has a 5-ft power cord with on/off switch and comes with a 5 watt bulb.



Since we got the new tv center, I've been reworking the whole living room design scheme. I've got a post going on a new mood board, that so far includes a loveseat, chaise, sofabed, and the curtains and tv center we already have. Today I've had rugs on the brain. I really wnat one with a lot of color in it. What I can't decide is what colors. I'm thinking about relocating Sarah (my $300+ art print, that I talked about here) to our bedroom because I really don't like the gallery wall with the new tv center. So with a blank wall, that gives me a more or less blank slate for the room colors (so long as they include teal or green, which are the curtains I already have. If I choose something that doesn't work with those, then I have to buy new curtains too). These are a couple of rugs that I love for the room.

{ Source }
I really think I'd prefer one with a black base since the furniture I want is all in shades of grey. I'm hoping it'll help ground the room more. Make sense? But I'm having trouble finding one with a black base, with the bright colors I want too. This is beautiful, but its not as bright as I'd like it to be.

{ Source }
Now this is a little more up my alley color-wise. It doesn't have the black base I'm thinking, but I love the vivid colors and the asymmetrical lines.

{ Source }
This is my favorite of the 3. I adore it! Its a few of my favorite things all wrapped in a rug. The oceanic colors and flowing lines, the mosaic stripes... I'm most at peace when I'm close to a major body of water (well aside from when I'm in Jess' arms, of course!♥), so this would be the next best thing to moving seaside for me.

I'd never buy a rug without touching and looking over it first though. Its something I'm particularly picky about. I want something super soft and plush under my feet, and its something I won't compromise on. So chances are, I'll end up getting one from Ollie's or Ikea or the flea market rather than online.

And now, I'm off to get ready for work, for the 4th time in 5 days! Crazy how I go from not gettin any work for a month straight to nearly every day, right? Sucks that every bit of money I'm making will have to go to bills though. Such is life I guess.


Feature Friday: Ann Vierick

I had almost this whole post typed up already and logged back in and it was nowhere to be found. Idk if Blogger lost it, or maybe somehow it was a connection issue or other problem with this computer, or what, but GRRR. Just sayin. Anyway, here it goes again.

I also want to apologize for slacking on posting this week. Its been a hell of a week, worked 3 8-12 hour night shifts (and tonight makes 4), plus my sister had some major health problems and we were all very worried about her for a while (she is doing much better now though). So like I said, hell of a week.

*Disclaimer: All images in this post are of artworks done by Ann Vierick at Canvasart1. I claim no credit or responsibility for any of the art or photography in this post.

This week's Feature Friday is on an awesome artist named Ann Vierick, who runs her own Etsy shop, Canvasart1. She is offering you wonderful readers a discount code, as well as a short interview. She has been so nice to work with, and I hope you all give her a big welcome (as well as consider buying some of her work!) so that she will come back again in the future!

So. Onto the interview portion of your feature presentation. :D

What is your favorite piece and why?
AV ~ [It's] a seascape I did a few years back titled Illumination. I love the feel of the piece because it seems to be lit from within.

[Is that a gorgeous piece or what!? I would love to hang that in my house! It truly does seem to be lit from within, as Ann said. Fantastic use of color and paint to bring it alive.]

Where do you get your inspiration?
AV ~ My main inspiration source is from nature

How long have you been painting? How did you get started?
AV ~ As long as I can remember. All through my childhood, I enjoyed art class more than any other. Was always involved in art shows, creating murals for school plays etc. I went to school for Graphic Design thinking that I would have a better chance of employment that way, but painting is what I really love to do.

How/why did you decide to start selling on Etsy?
AV ~ I am a muralist and decorative painter also. I heard about Etsy through another decorative artist on a online faux forum and decided to give it a try.

On to some of my favorite pieces!

I so love a good tree painting, especially an impasto one! I also love triptychs and diptychs, and as well as works with more than 2 or 3 pieces. The use of color here is wonderful to me too.

I think this would be so gorgeous on a kitchen wall! It reminds of coffee beans. Imagine sitting there drinking your morning coffee and getting to drink in this work of art as well. Idk about you, but that would sure make my morning better!

For those of you who may have more classic tastes than me, she has pieces that might appeal to you as well. Like this Americana piece. Beautiful pasture, beautiful mountains in the background, beautiful blue sky above.

If you read last week's Feature Friday, then you know I love birds sitting in a tree or on a wire. What sets this one apart, at least for me, is that it seems to be a family of birds. It makes me think of a mom and dad (or mom and mom, as it would be in my case) sitting there with their 2 young ones between them. I love the serenity the shades of blue background and white flowers give the piece. One small happy family!

These next 2 are similar to each other, but I absolutely could not pick one for this post. So here are both!

Thanks to her excellent use of shading, it truly looks like a metal piece of wall art rather than a painted one, dontcha think? As does this one:

I love love LOVE how she did the swirls in the middle squares. It feels like I am looking through a window at golden wind! (I know, I do tend to have quite the imagination. But that's whats so great about art! While I see golden wind, each one of you can interpret it in your own ways!)

So, didja see anything you like? Perhaps something you'd even consider buying? If so, act fast! Ann is offering a 10% discount for you wonderful readers! Just enter the code HOMEDECOR when you check out!


New Entertainment Center Finally!

Yesterday was an incredibly long day! I know some of you will remember me mentioning that my sister Crystal might be buying our old entertainment center. Well she gave us the money in advance Friday so that we could buy a new one so ours wouldn't be sitting in the floor. I posted here about my search for a new one and the one I had semi-decided on. In the end, Jess ended up talking me out of that one (it was from Wal-Mart, and she didn't want to risk our tv being damaged if it fell apart in 2 months). I've been looking for an excuse to go to the Ikea store in Charlotte (about an hour's drive away), so off we went today in search of a center. This was my first time ever going! Between the Charlotte traffic and the amount of people there shopping, Jess was feeling less than stellar (anxiety from the traffic and claustrophobia from all the people) so my first time was a bit lacking. We did, however, find an entertainment center. (Well, Jess found one; its the same one I had picked out and rejected because we couldn't mount it to the wall.) But she talked me into getting it anyway, promised she'd make it work, so we loaded it up and went on our way. (My first ever purchase from Ikea!!)

Ikea EXPEDIT, in white
Putting it together was easier than most of the furniture I've gotten over the years, but it wasn't without its snags. Most of the pieces are only held together by pegs, and it was extremely aggravating at some points trying to get all the pegs to line up to go in the right holes! When we finally got it all together and ready to stand up, we realized we had put the backboard on upside-down (it has a hole to thread tv cords through and keep them out of sight, and it was at the top when it should have been at the bottom), so the top had to be unscrewed and taken off, the backboard flipped, and then came another fight to get all the pegs lined up again. Once we got all that straightened out, we stood it up, and I have to admit it was a thing of beauty (see it there above).

Now, don't ask me why (I guess to save ourselves the trouble later?), but at this point we went ahead and put the brackets on that you use to secure it to the wall (if you look closely you can see it in the top corners of the tv space). I didn't know it at the time, but that would end up being a big source of frustration, which I'll get to in a minute.

Brackets on the wall, all that's left now is putting up the tv
And now we faced a dilemma. We had bought a wall mount kit for the tv thats compatible with the expedit. But we realized that if we were to mount the tv to the backboard there, because of the cords we wouldn't be able to put the expedit close enough to the wall to secure it to the wall, as Ikea recommends you do. In fact, the only way we could secure it to the wall would be if we didn't use the outlet on that wall at all, because its completely blocked by the shelves. So then we started debating on whether the center would be stable enough without being fastened to the wall to hold the tv. And eventually decided on not risking it. So Jess got the brilliant idea to take the backboard off and simply mount the tv to the wall itself. (I know, such a simple, common sense idea right!? We're such geniuses.) So came the top of the center AGAIN, we removed the backboard, and replaced the top piece. And proceeded to mount the tv on the wall.

So we ended up not needing the wall mount brackets at all. The problem came in that one of the screws had completely stripped when we were putting them on. You can even see where we couldn't even get it screwed all the way in. We tried the rubber band thing that I've seen all over Pinterest, but I guess our rubber band wasn't wide enough or thick enough or whatever, because it didn't work. So now we are stuck with that bracket on there. You don't really notice it unless you're looking for it, but I know its there! I might paint it white one day so at least it'll hopefully blend more with the center and with the wall.

We even took advantage of this time to include some new organization! I found some colorful zip ties at - wait for it - the Dollar Tree! So all cords are wrapped up as much as possible, leaving a little slack for movement, and zip tied to keep everything as neat as possible. They're even color-coordinated! For instance, blue zip ties are Xbox-related cords, green is Xbox accessories, orange is for power supply, etc.

After we got the tv mounted and all the cords in place, everything else had to be moved from the old center to the new one (read: all of Jess' million and a half DVD's and Xbox games). So once that was done, this is what we ended up with:

You can still see all the cords dangling behind the cubes, but I have a plan to fix that soon. I also threw up a few decorative items for the picture, but I'm not happy with the arrangement, so next time you see it I'm sure everything will be moved around as far as that goes. Plus Jess has promised to make room so I can have a shelf or two. Eventually I want to get some of the baskets or drawers that Ikea has that work with it too, something to help hide all those movies and games until we get better storage for them!

On thing I LOVE is that little vase of faux grass beside the tv. Its my way of bringing in spring in a super cheap way! I bought two sprigs of fake grass at the Dollar Tree and stuck it in a small vase filled with faux river rocks that I already had (originally from the Dollar Tree as well). I stuck it there to use a little of that dead space, and I love it there! And surprisingly, so does Jess!


Rachel Dunnigan Original Painting Giveaway

**Edit: This giveaway is over. Congratulations go to Valarie M!**

Remember me mentioning in my first Feature Friday that the artist, Rachel Dunnigan, would be donating a piece to you wonderful readers for a giveaway? Well the time has come for that giveaway! Are you as excited as I am!? Heeeeere goes!

Rosebuds by Rachel Dunnigan

(The watermark isn't part of the painting of course!) Its 16x20, acrylic and ink on canvas. It would normally sell for $45, but if you win you get it free! Its impasto, so of course I love it! (Well, ok, I don't love ALL impasto work, but a good bit of it.) Even if you don't win, be sure to go check out her shop, littleEarthTreasures, and maybe purchase one of your own, and make sure you tell her I sent you! So without further ado, on your marks, get set, and go!

***Edit: I know this is last-minute, but I've been playing around with the idea of changing the blog name for a little while now, and with how to do it so that I don't lose any of the wonderful readers that I already have. So I'm introducing the idea now, and I will slowly start the transformation over the next few months. That's why I made it mandatory for anyone who wants to enter to 'like' the new page on Facebook. All of the other social media I use can be changed easily and without having to start over, all except Facebook. Eventually I'll change the blog's URL as well, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.


Feature Friday- QiQiGallery

 *Disclaimer: All images in this post are of artworks done by QiQiGallery. I claim no credit or responsibility for any of the art or photography in this post.

Welcome to my second ever Feature Friday! This is so exciting to me, possibly as exciting as when I first started this blog! So this week's feature is about Etsy seller QiQiGallery. She asked that I not use her real name because its too hard to pronounce, but I'll call her QiQi for short. She was sweet enough to answer a few questions for me

365 Days of Happiness
What is your favorite piece and why?
QiQi ~ [Painting is pictured to the left, 365 Days of Happiness] I like the symmetric beauty of the painting and it makes me happy to look at it and to paint it.

Where do you get your inspiration?
QiQi ~  I get my inspiration from nature. I love natural beauty.

How long have you been painting? How did you get started?
QiQi ~ I started painting at really young age. I started drawing horses using pencil.

Its literally impossible for me to choose just one as a favorite. I love them all! I'm having trouble narrowing it down to just a couple for this post even! But let's get the ball rolling, shall we? This piece is titled 'The Soul Mate'. It says goldfish, but it reminds me of koi fish, which I think is why I love it. (I love koi fish!) I love the look that painting with a palette knife gives a painting. Its the same impasto style that Susanna Shap used for my Sarah, which I blogged about here. QiQi uses it in a lot of her work.

Sand Dune
This is another style she uses often. I'm not sure how to classify it though. There are some with beach scenes, others with meadows and the occasional tree. They have an almost cartoonish look to them. All gorgeous but for the sake of space (and to try to keep this post from sending your computer into a seizure from image overload), I'll limit it to this one.

Add kanji to that list of things I love! (As well as many other things Asian such as pagodas, cherry blossoms, Buddha and minimalist decor styles). I love the blue and purple used for the background, its very calming and serene.

QiQi does a lot of lovebird works. Two lone birds on a wire or sitting in a tree, another theme I love. Its like, 'you and me against the world'. And with the rainbow background in this one, that appears it may be impasto, is it any wonder I picked it to show yall?

Sometimes she does simple still life paintings as well. Can't you just see this hanging in a kitchen somewhere?

Red Tulips

Not all of her flowers are abstractly done. I love this simple work with a few red flowers and checkered background. And the orange grid on the checkerboard makes the red of the flowers pop even more.

I'll leave off there before I get too carried away. What do yall think though? Are you as in love with her talent as I am? Well if you are, hurry on over to her shop! She's offering 10% discount exclusively for my wonderful readers! Use coupon code "QIQI4DOAD" at checkout!


Box Project Fail... For Now

I was so excited about this project. I had this big epiphany and realized that a cardboard box that was going to be thrown out was the perfect size to fit in my kitchen cabinet and do what I'd been looking for baskets to do. I immediately pulled everything out of my cabinet and started organizing. I figured out exactly where I wanted to put and what to put in it, so then I started to think about decorating it. At first I was thinking about covering it with fabric, sewing pieces together to make a sort of slipcover for it. But I only have a little hand-held sewing machine, and I don't have patience to tackle something that difficult without a regular machine. So that idea was out.

Then I thought I'd just cover it with scrapbooking paper. I got out my Modge Podge, and glued up and papered all the sides. Well that part worked swell, but  I wanted something to cover up the corners, the 'seams' so to speak. So I pulled out some ribbon and started gluing that on using the MP. Well that part didn't work so well. Even after the glue was completely dried, the ribbons just peeled right off. Apparently MP doesn't bond well with satin ribbon. I got out my hot glue gun and tried it, it bonded better but didn't look so hot:

The next day Jen over at IHeartOrganizing posted this post. Major facepalm moment. She made these  by using spray adhesive and covering cardboard boxes with fabric:

Genius right? Turned out much better than mine did, that's for sure! I think I'll stick to something along these lines when I get around to finishing my boxes.


General Post

Oh how I miss having Gimp! I can't wait to get either my or Jess' computer back from my uncle (both are currently not functional), so I can use it again. (I'm using The Boy's computer for now, he's grounded from it anyway, and he has almost no RAM, so even with only the essential programs, it runs super slow. That's a big part of why I haven't been posting as much, because I get soooo irritated with this computer!) A friend recommended Pixlr.com, because its very similar to Gimp, but all the work is done in your browser. I really want to do a new living room board, because my vision for the room has changed since I did the last one and I'd really like to get it all put together in one place other than my head. But I'm having trouble learning Pixlr, so it looks like the new board isn't going to happen, at least not anytime soon. Not until I learn Pixlr better, or until we get one of our computers back.

But at least you have another Feature Friday to look forward to! The post is all typed and ready to post, and I am already typing up posts for next month as well. I have some wonderful artisans lined up, as well as some fantastic discounts and giveaways! Its booking up quicker than I ever would have imagined, I will be booked solid through the summer before long!


Pinterest Etiquette

Hi, my name is Courtney, and I am a Pinterest addict. ("Hiiiii Courtney!") But that's not what this post is about. Like many of you, I adore Pinterest. But I HATE to see what its become since its gained so much popularity! People pin and repin without any regard to whether the link is correct, or whether the proper credit is given. And I admit that while I tried to be good about pinning only images with correct sources and credits, there were many many images that I was lazy on and repinned without checking. So, today I've been working through my 800-some pins, correcting what I can. I've corrected quite a few, but I still have a long way to go. I'm not sure what to do with the others, the images I can't find a source on, but for now I'm moving them into a separate board titled 'Orphaned Images'. It really drives me nuts when I click on an image to see the tutorial, or whatever other reason, only to find a whole page of completely unrelated random photos and the one I wanted nowhere to be found! I wish people had more respect, those images are someone's intellectual property!

I'm getting off my soapbox now. For those of you who care, I wanted to share a technique to find image origins. There have still been a few images I haven't been able to find, but it has helped me find a good many sources to credit. I saw this image on Pinterest, and I think it was the snapping point for me (as in snapping me into action to correct as many of my pins as possible, and encourage others to do the same). She explains it much better than I could, and has helpful pictures, so head on over to The Graphics Fairy's page to read the tutorial!

{ Source }
Now go start correcting your pins! Or at the very least be more careful when you repin new things! A lot of people have been pushing Pinterest to make it against the terms of service to repin things without the correct source. Translation- if they succeed, you could potentially be banned from Pinterest if you're caught!


My Latest Find

Our A/C is out. And maintenance says they can't even figure out what's wrong with it until it gets over 70 degrees outside. So thanks to the 68-degree-days we've been having, its typically around 80 degrees inside our apartment. So I guess its no suprise why I've had ceiling fans on the brain lately.

I'm sure at least some of you have figured out by now that my taste can run a bit eclectic. Which may be why I fell in love with this:
{ Source }

Total conversation piece, right? And totally me. Its $111, not the cheapest but not horrible either. Totally buying this one day!


Feature Friday- Rachel Dunnigan

*Disclaimer: All images in this post are of artworks done by Rachel Dunnigan or pictures she submitted of her home. I claim no credit or responsibility for any of the art or photography in this post.

Its Feature Friday! Since I don't want to do all the artist features at once, I mentioned that I was thinking about spreading them out. And today being Friday, I have the element of alliteration on my side. I'm not sure yet if it will be a weekly or monthly thing, so yall let me know how you like it!

I'm so excited to be bringing you my first artist feature! Her name is Rachel Dunnigan, and her Etsy shop is littleEarthTreasures. And she is sweet as pie! She is donating one of her pieces for a giveaway for you wonderful readers, which will be coming up in a week or two.

For those of you who don't know me that well yet, I love things organic. I find such beauty in nature. So I'm sure its not much surprise that one of my favorite pieces of hers is this one, titled 'Organica'.

She was gracious enough to answer a few questions for us too.

Where do you get your inspiration?
RD ~ My inspiration comes from anything and everything. From fallen autumn leaves on the ground or in a tree, to seeing all of the color swatches lined up together in a paint store. Nature inspires me most. Flora, sunshine, green grass... everything.
What is your favorite piece and why?
RD ~ If I had to choose, my favorite piece would be 'VIOLET'. I painted this for my best friend who's expecting a daughter whose name will be Violet, hence the title. I've painted and continue to paint many variations of this piece -- in different sizes and color schemes -- as I absolutely adore creating abstract flora paintings.

How long have you been painting? How did you get started?
RD ~ I've been painting on and off since I was a little girl. I used to attend weekend classes at the Maryland Institute College of Art when I was small, and have immersed myself in art of all kinds since I can remember. However, the past few years have been crucial to my growth as a painter. I mostly use acrylics and adore mixed media. Sometimes I'll paint with acrylic and use an adhesive to fix a real flower onto the painting.

Seeing as how this blog is mainly focused on home design, I'd love it if you're willing to submit a picture of something in your home you wouldn't mind readers seeing, maybe a room you love, or a piece of art you adore, etc.
"Here is an inspirational photo of my back yard, a place where I spend an unusual amount of time..."

"...and another of my favorite room in my home (it's bright, sunny, and alluring)."
-Rachel Dunnigan

 And just because, here are a few more works I love:


With a name like Mermaids, is it any wonder that I love this? (Hush Kelly! Lol!)


I love things celestial too, and most anything depicting the differences between night and day.

And that concludes my very first artist feature, thanks to Rachel Dunnigan! I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have, and be sure to go check out her shop, and maybe even purchase something, and tell her I sent ya! And stay tuned for a giveaway of one of her pieces, and for more artist features!


Guest Post- Elegant Tuscany Style

A couple of weeks ago, I got an email from someone over at Arcadian Lighting Blog saying they enjoyed reading my blog, and wanting to know if I'd be interested in a guest post. Well of course I said yes! She asked if I had a preference of topics and I told her to surprise me. So she said she'd get to work on writing one, and get back to me. To be honest I had forgotten about it until I got her email last night with the article! For her topic she picked Elegant Tuscany Style. Exciting, yes? So without further ado, here is Jessica!
