New Artwork from

If you were to look at the wall art I have mounted, there's a pattern of nature with neutral tones that can be switched out throughout the house.  As versatile as they are, I wanted wall art that was more colorful, a bit quirky, and merely different.  Luckily, I found the perfect match on

Minted has a myriad of decorative prints to select from that make choosing art a fun experience!  I had so many options that could bring life to my living room, so I chose a quirky camper art print with lots of color.

I had the choice of customizing the frame which helped tremendously to make the art match with the others in my living room.

There are little details in the wooden frame that add dimension and style. has so many pieces to fall in love with.  With so many beautiful options I had a hard time making my decision.  My new artwork adds liveliness and fun to a room that needed it.  You can find your next favorite wall art here, with customizable options to make it personal.

Monarch Rain Chains


In the hottest weeks of the year, we finally have frequent showers to combat the heat and give my flowers some much needed attention.

On days where rain is sparse and the constant need to run to my hose is too much, I needed something that could collect rainwater for later use.  So, I began researching and lo and behold, I have found a functional and decorative way to do so--a rain chain.

Rain chains come in a plethora of sizes and vary in material, so I opted for a pure-copper rain chain with a medium-sized water basin from Monarch Rain Chains.  

The copper color complements the exterior of my home perfectly and the hammered cups had just enough subtle detail. 

It collects enough water to hold a bit of downpour, which is more than enough for me to tend to all my flowers and my small vegetable garden. 

With this rain chain, I have a sophisticated way of conserving water and my energy. 

Having this addition to the exterior of my home adds both decoration and functionality that works well.  It has saved me the infinite amount of trips to and from the hose that made gardening such a chore. 

Monarch Rain Chains offers so many styles that fit anyone's tastes from aluminum rain chains to very large cup styles with ornate decorations.
