ahhh...it feels good to be done.

in 2009 i decided i wanted to make a huge collage wall for my living room.
i started collecting prints from etsy and frames from ebay.
and little by little, my wall started evolving. 
it has been fun - one of the most fun things i've done in my home.

i went to go find you the very first picture i took of it, and blogger deleted it right when i found it.
i love blogger, sometimes, don't you?
so here is the wall at our last home - right before we bought this one.

i actually really loved this wall. 
but i knew that when i re-did it at our new home, i wanted to make a few changes.
for one thing, i didn't want wrapping paper framed anymore. 
and i knew the color of the wall would be different so i would have to change up the frames.
and i wanted to expand everything - the wall space in our new home is a lot bigger.

i've been slowly working on perfecting it since we moved in here in september.
and i've needed one last thing for a month or two now in order for it to be done.
i added it to my favorites on etsy quite some time ago and i've just been waiting to save a little bit more money.
and guess what?
yesterday, it came in the mail. 
sneaky little stinker went on my etsy favorites and bought it.
i squealed loudly when i opened the package.
and my eyes might have filled up with momentary hormonal tears for a sec or two.
i wanted a 4 for our family of 4.

and now my wall is complete.
and i could not be happier.
i have stared at it all day.

feels so good to be done.

all frames from the frame guys
letters "f, m, c and &" from anthropologie and letters "s and k" from pier 1 imports
and the number 4 is from salvage nation

and now....lets find something else to dream up for another wall, shall we?
