One of the most wonderful things about celebrating our engagement was all the beautiful cards we got from family and friends. Sweet and genuine messages of love and support that made my heart swell and even brought a tear to my eye. I’m a huge believer in writing sentimental messages on cards and I love when other people do the same for me (us).
I can’t leave the cards up in the loungeroom forever (as much as I would like to), but I wanted to have a constant reminder of that special time and all the important people in our lives. Inspiration wall.
I’m forever gathering photos, images and bits & pieces to pin onto my inspiration board, but I figured why not turn a whole wall into one giant bastion of inspiration. Fun, right? The wall between my bedroom door and my bathroom is now a mix of engagement cards, photos, fashion images and other random cool stuff. Everytime I look at it, I smile.
The frames came from Ikea and Target, the lettering and giant pegs from Typo, and the bulldog clips from Officeworks – all stuff I had at home that just happened to be perfect.
Ikea – $2.99 for pack of two small frames, $3.99 for larger frame (all Nyttja range) – the quad frame is actually the inner from a bigger Ikea frame.
Target – $9.99 for two thin black frames (glass and backing discarded)
Typo – $2.95 for giant wooden pegs, letters $4.95 each or 3 for $10
Officeworks – no idea how much the bulldog clips are (I bought these ages ago)
