Spring Inspiration & Souvenir

Some sneak peeks of the spring issue of Souvenir are floating around. Have you seen them? 

 Just seeing these peeks from some of the incredibly talented Souvenir contributors has me in the mood for Spring and wanting to lighten things up around the house.  I took pages from some thrift store butterfly books and used them as quick instant art for spring. No frame, no fuss. Just pretty and easy for a hallway or corner.

 The paper has pretty vintage French details similar to old teaching charts. 


Here are a few more that can be found on their website:










I had a little fun with this today and moved it to the back hall so you can see the scale.  It's huge!
