Whimsical and Sassy Wall Art

September 22, 2014

If I had to choose one shop that summed up my personality I would absolutely choose Kate Spade.  Everything is bright and colorful, yet sophisticated, with a little bit of sass.  It's the perfect combination if you ask me.  

One of my Christmas presents from Tom last year was an adorable hot pink Kate Spade planner, and I use it every single day.  Each month showcases a fun watercolor, and I was pleasantly surprised a few months ago when I realized that Kate Spade gives out free postcards each month with the corresponding water color on it.  These bright postcards are too pretty just to be used as a card, so I immediately realized that they would look perfect on a sassy and girly gallery wall.  Thank goodness Tom is a good sport and lets me decorate how I please!

I bought the white frames at Ikea (called the Ribba), because that was a simple and affordable framing solution for these 4x6 inch beauties.  I had to trim the sides a tiny amount, but it was almost a perfect fit after I removed the matting.

So far, I've framed 3 of these cards for myself, and I have a second set for a certain special friend who introduced me to Kate Spade a few years ago.  I hope she likes them!

I hung these pieces over my desk, which I'll share on the blog soon!  If you're interested in making these fun (and budget friendly) pieces of wall art, you have 4 months left to gather 4 cards.  Just make sure you visit Kate Spade each month because they often run out and don't have any extras from the previous month.
