It's time for some Irish cheer

Using this adorable idea (and shamrock printable), I made some festive decorations for our house.

I reused these homemade decorations from our wedding:

And turned them into this:
For Christmas, my mother-in-law gave us a fillable lamp. It was immediately filled with ornaments:
I emptied the ornaments out and replaced them with the hearts that hung in the aisles at our wedding ceremony and from the ceiling at our reception:
This is our upstairs table now, with the hearts and the shamrock-filled vases:

Photo Wall

Since we bought (and redid) our house, we have wanted to create a picture wall in the main hallway. I love mismatched picture walls, but I was leaning more towards all black frames.

Sweet Christopher attempted it but hung the pictures too far apart for my liking. My vision was inspired by this photo.  I like the way the clean line pulls it all together.

I used painters tape and a level to create the line, then hung the frames wherever they fit.
We still have plenty of room to hang more pictures above and below!
I'm really happy with how it turned out!
