Since we're in the process of re-working our new-to-us home, I thought it might be fun to document a few of our interior projects along the way. We are not experts by any means, but we've stolen enough good ideas to create some rooms and projects we're proud to share. So here is the first of, I hope, many interior posts.
Interior Idea #1: a frame wall. I've wanted to create a frame wall for many years, but never had the space to pull it off. When we purchased our new home, I was thrilled to finally have a large wall to use as a frame canvas of sorts. Designing this space was really simple. I just arranged my menagerie of collected frames on our living room floor in a way that looked pleasing to my eye. The key was balance, but without perfect symmetry. Executing my design was a little more complicated, but fortunately I have a very astute and particular husband who did that part for me (without the excessive nail holes I would have created). Unlike fine art canvases, prints for these frames are inexpensive and I can change them out whenever I feel the need. I am enjoying the black and white images now, but I intend to change them out for some color in mid-winter when there's nothing but snow outside. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend! -Emily

We have about one month before our little boy arrives (assuming he comes near his due date). We're both excited and nervous to become a family of four--excited to finally meet our son and nervous because we remember how fragile and demanding newborns can be. We'll be the first to admit that we were a little neurotic the first time around, so hopefully it comes more naturally with the second. Of course, we do have a little helper this time (note the pictures with the baby doll).
At any rate, we finally made it out to take a few family/belly pictures. I wanted to get out a little before sunset, but setting up my camera to work with a missing tripod piece and the evening sun-flare was a little trickier than I anticipated. I have a lot to learn when it comes to shooting at sunset, let alone when it comes to getting myself in the shot. But fortunately I have a very patient husband and daughter, and we were able to get at least one shot with us all looking at the camera--mission accomplished. (Credit goes to J for the other ones.) I hope you all have a nice weekend and a happy Mother's Day! -Emily
