In My Room


Nice to meet you: SARAH JANE

What do the walls of you kids rooms look like? Do like to leave them blank or hang all of your kids drawings? Perhaps you have a favorite artist and have some of their art framed! Or is it like me, a little bit of everything. I wish I had more wall space to hang even more art and lovely prints such as those of Sarah Jane. Her illustrations make me smile and so I'm sure they would enlighten any kids room. A little bit retro, a little bit classic, lots of soft colors punched with wonderful brights- so so sweet.


There are many Prints to choose from- great for boys and girls.


Some with cute sayings.


You can hang one or more together.
Look how cute they are with washi tape.
On a side note- how did we ever live without washi tape?

And so much more to discover in the Sarah Jane shop... Look out for her new fabric collection too! I just know it's going to be so sweet.

You might want to check out the blog as well, there some free downloads and DIY projects I am sure you'll enjoy.

Oh! and Sarah is offering all of my readers a discount now through Saturday! Use the code SPRING15 at checkout in the online shop or the ETSY shop. Enjoy!

In My ROOM: a touch of yellow...

Pru by Sophia bird
I have to say that I really love the color yellow, and it wasn't until today I realized how much I loved it! There is a little bit of yellow here and there everywhere in my apartment. My kitchen is yellow and orange. My living and dining room has touches of yellow, two different vintage chairs, one for the kids and one for us, some yellow Moroccan potteries, a yellowish painting... Mister M and Miss E, more yellow... and I even found some yellow in our bedroom, a sunflower frame with a picture of me and my sister when where much younger (I have had that frame for the longest time...). My point? Put a little sunshine in your rooms too, add some touches here and there, it doesn't have to much. You'll see, it will make you feel good! By the way, the yellow vintage items always rock!!! 
Here's some inspiration... just click on the link bellow the picture for more!
