arts and crafts


Since moving in with my fiance about a week ago, I have been SLOWLY integrating my stuff in with his stuff. The newest addition to our place is my Simon painting (see above). It is surrounded by corkboard tiles (from Ace Hardware). Over the next few months we plan to pin up things for our New Orleans wedding around this New Orleans painting - sort of a living inspiration/mood board. Then after the wedding, it can display cards, recipes, or whatever! I am pretty excited and we both really like the way it came out.

By the way, I gave my fiance his very own Simon painting for his birthday, which is also hung in the kitchen (see below). Simon doesn't have a website, but you can call him (he works out of an antique shop on Jackson Ave.) and he will pretty much paint whatever you want. His paintings are found all over New Orleans. As chance would have it, I actually have red beans cooking in a crock pot at home today. :)
