Artwork for the Living Room!

Has February really come and gone? 
I just can't believe it!  This month has flown by, especially the last few weeks with the arrival of my newhew! Isn't he a cutie!

Anyway,  I know it has been quite a while since I have done a real blog post, but I have been working on a few things for the living room that I wanted to share with you.   Mainly some artwork to go with my DIY Kate Spade Ampersand!  
I've been wanting to create a wall of framed images to go above my new sofa, but I can never seem to find prints or paintings that I like!   I guess I'm just too picky for my own good!  
Well, I was looking for some inspiration and came across a few old ( I'm thinking 1950's or 60's) Vogue images, which was exactly the look and feel of what I was trying to find!  Most of the ones I really liked I could not find prints of, sooooooo what's a DIY gal to do but make her own!
So this past week I pulled out my watercolors and got to work!

Here's the first image I finished!

It fits perfectly in my Ikea frames!

For now it will sit next to my DIY Kate Spade Ampersand on top of a bookcase, until I get a few more things finished.   I am so loving it next to my Kate Spade Ampersand, and can't wait to see how it will all come together and up on the wall!

What have you all been up to this past week?
