Wall Art for the Breakfast Area

Hello Friends!

It's been one VERY BUSY WEEK for me  with us trying to get our oldest son settled in in his High school dormitory in St. Louis! Hew! Orientations left and right and of course, making sure his digs for the next 10 months would suffice. I also had some work-related things to do on top of that! And of course, my middle one just started 5th grade! Did I mention we're doing some new fencing work around the house and finishing up the boy's bathroom as well?!!!

Hopefully this week will be slower for me (although the number of patients waiting for me have probably doubled; -) because I need to catch up on what all of you have been up to too!!!!

Anyway, enough of that, I have something pretty to share with you all today. :-)

I have been looking for the perfect wall art on our breakfast area for a while now.

I am still in love with the Philip Jeffries Wall paper here and that's probably one of the reasons why I was content for a while not to cover or add on any art to the wall.

But when I saw these at Wisteria....

So pretty
I knew that this would be perfect for the space.

And I think my intuition was right!
 For one thing, I loved the art on it's own...

 ... but it also perfectly matches the malachite Robert Allen covers on my chairs!

It took a while for me to get these, for one thing, the first one that arrived was broken. Luckily, Wisteria has great customer service and getting a replacement was easy. Only problem was one of the Malachite Wall art was on back order, so when it finally arrived, I was ecstatic!

I'm currently loving orange alstroemeria

Look at my $5 fiddle leaf figs now too!
Sometimes, things can't be hurried at all and you just have to patiently wait until your find the right piece and fit for your home.

Have a Great week!
