map time


IMG_2359

I finally framed an old map of Paris that Jon got me. The Eiffel Tower isn't even on there yet. A few weeks ago my friend Mauri and I went to the Vancouver Art Gallery and he pointed out how one of the artists framed their photograph with a lot of white space at the bottom. That idea stayed with me so I decided to frame the map similarly. Having my own hand-held mat cutter is very handy for instant-gratification projects like this.

I'm intrigued by those tall glass jars. I like how neat everything is.
My counter tops are usually covered with dust, handbags, water bottles, cups, magazines, you name it within seconds of me cleaning it up.

xing + HAL- thanks!

h- I love bell jars. This dresser is usually covered with dust- it collects it within 10 minutes of dusting it.

Great mobile!

also, what paint colour is that on the walls????

Stephanie said...

DJ- the wall colour is "builder's white" I think it's just the lighting that makes it look like a light grey.
