Calling all Brides...

I'm offering a $30 Gift Certificate to my Etsy store, www.joyframeworks.etsy.com, to the winner(s) of my wedding photo contest.  Yes, I said there could possibly be multiple winners!

I LOVE the look of vintage weddings, the sweetness of the Indie gatherings and the cozy bohemian eclectic look!  I must not be the only one because I've had several brides incorporate my authentic Antique Ceiling Tin Memo Boards and Frames into their wedding decor.  Everything from thank you gifts, wedding & engagement photo display, name card display and more!  These ladies are creative!

I'd love to share some of their creativity by showing you and my Etsy shoppers how these antique materials can be used in your upcoming wedding or party.

There's a giveaway....

There's a giveaway over at Tatertots & Jello!  It is so good that I almost want to keep it a secret so my odds of winning are better!  Sad, I know.  

Modern Bird Studios is giving away (via Tatertots & Jello) your own personal work of art (valued at $215)!


Check out the Tatertots & Jello site for details.

Good luck!

Come on in...

Entryways. Hmmm. Tough little buggers aren't they?

Need a bit of inspiration?  


These small areas of our homes make a large impact on our guests. 

Let's reflect.

1. Does your entryway feel inviting, welcoming?  
2. Does it reflect your style & personality?  
3.Does it set the stage for the rest of your home? 
4. Does it meet your family needs? 


Love the color & the multi-purpose storage!

A place to rest, a place to store and a mirror for that last minute check.  Love the clean lines!

A damask wallpaper in a light sea foam green perfectly complements this antique trumeau. With a delicate sitting chair in this corner, this space feels both feminine and elegant.
Sometimes all it takes are a few bold pieces.  Gorgeous.  

Hope you enJOYed!

 Plus, there's something nice about buying handmade items.  Besides the obvious quality, it's nice to know you are literally supporting a person's creative passion and contributing directly to their monetary needs.  A smaller circle feels good.
