The Big Reveal...


So... big reveal #1... my London Wall!

Why do I call it my London Wall, when almost everything on my wall has to do with France? It's because I got the idea from Tracy Porter (click to see her version) and she calls her wall that, because it reminds her of London where the hotel walls are all full of lusciousness. I truly love Tracy, she inspires me everyday, and helps me look at life a little less seriously.

My wall doesn't have any real antiques... yet... but I love it so much because it was... drumroll... FREE!!!

Everything on the wall except the crown carving, ($5-TJMaxx) was already in my house. Don't you love repurposing and breathing life into things that were so-so on their own, but rearranged and refluffed...VOILA... a whole new situation! Of course this wall will grow and change as I add to it. The wall actually goes up 14 feet to an opening to the gameroom upstairs...
so I gotta LOT of wall to work with!

Sooooooooooo, hope you enjoy this short video. Sorry for the out-of-focus close-ups....oops!

Great day to you all... soon... reveal #2!

Yes, you are getting a standing "O" here in Texas! Love all the memories - so much better to have them displayed to enjoy rather than stuck in a drawer somewhere! So pretty and artistic. Great job!

Hi!
I LOVE your London Wall but my favorite is the shadow box you made for your husband. It is a great idea for all the souvenir papers I got from my trip to Paris. Thank you for the inspiration and I hope you have a wonderful day.

best regards,
Wanda Contreras

Teri,
I'm in love with your London wall, which is really a composite of all your travels. What a terrific way to make use of all the memorabilia, and be reminded each day of all your wonderful memories.

You, my friend, are so clever!

Oh Ruth... if you only knew of all the videos from Paris that I have not published. They are kooky beyond measure... I also have a few more ideas for blogs about a few more must-have products.

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments...

Bonjour Teri,

Love your 'London Wall'. You did a fabulous job on the video - please we'd love to see more, you're a natural!

Thanks for coming by about the McDo Macs - can you believe it? I prefer savoring them in a gorgeous salon myself, but have been known to sneak one out of the bag on my way home (but you didn't hear that from me)!

Bonne soirée
