cozying up the walls and a giveaway

We finally hung stuff up above our couch. Yay! I've had some place fillers there for a while, but I finally assembled enough meaningful things to fill the wall.

The massive saw on top belonged to my Pappap who passed away this summer. He collected lots of old tools, and the inside of his garage was covered with them.

This is one of my parents' peasant paintings that they got while we lived in China. It's a furniture store! Jaina loves it, and she likes it when we look at it together and I tell her about all of the mommies and daddies buying fancy beds.

My homie, Brahms, and Zach's masks from Kenya.

Pretty prints by my sister, Beka. On the left is a Mucha cover, and on the right are the Sneetches she made for Jaina's birthday.

This is an old Parcheesi board I found in my grandma's basement. I love that it says "Home" in the middle.

 It's crazy how much cozier a room is once there's artwork on the walls.

So, in addition to the horribly lit photos of our living room, I wanted to share a giveaway that my real life and blog friend, Holly of Curious Sprinkles, is hosting. She just started a very sweet Etsy shop with all of her  headbands. They're very cute and make awesome gifts. She's giving away one free headband of your choice to a lucky winner!

This is my favorite!

There are four of us co-hosting with her, and the more of us you follow, the more chances you have to win.

AND, Holly is giving any of my readers 20% off at her shop through the end of the month. So click on over to the Curious Sprinkles Etsy shop and do some stocking stuffer shopping! The coupon code is SPRiNKLES1013, and it's good through October 31st.
