As I've mentioned more than a few times, I rented for about 16 years, and when you're a renter you usually have little choice/input into your decor, and since we bought our house 2 years ago (in July!) I've found it a bit hard to get out of renters mode, and decorate/organise our home how we want it.
One of the areas I really want to tackle is the artwork in our home. I adore art, anywhere we go, I'm drawn like a moth or bower bird perhaps, to any artwork hanging in the house/restaurant/vineyard/shop.
I have collected some art in my travels, and they will definitely be finding their way onto our walls in the coming month or so, before everyone arrives for our wedding!
This is one of the prints we have to hang, I bought it with the first cheque I received for my business, back in 2001! It has been hung in every rental since, and will be the first onto the wall. I first saw it in a restaurant in Ireland and fell in love, I knew I had to have it.

I found the website Art.com through a blog I love - Young House Love, after reading about one of their art hanging projects. Good and bad that I found art.com good that I've found soo many pieces of art I love, but bad in that our budget probably won't love them as much as I do.
My Lust List so far!!:
Stunning Gerbera's in a spectrum of colour, would be gorgeous for a girls bedroom, or in a bathroom
