Fun things in my sisters house

By Karin Brosnan - Tuesday, February 22, 2011

While staying at my sisters house I took photos of different areas in her house that inspired me. This area is up on top of some shelving in her sewing room. I love how she took some old books, a large clock, a vase filled with faux fruit and a rustic metal floral decoration. It looks awesome. Look around your house to find unusual items to create a wonderful "scape"
Another fun and cheap idea is to frame maps! Tiff bought these black frames at Ikea for $4.99 and found the White mats at an "as is" Ikea sale for only $4.00!!
She is wishing she had bought a lot more!
Tiff's Secret tip: the maps are wrapping paper!! I don't know where she got it but keep your eyes peeled for fabulous wrapping paper to frame! Brilliant!!
