Wall stamping -literally.

One window to go and all our living space curtains will be up. The dining room chairs are next, so we can sit on some cute chairs instead of that brown slob we've been using for years. Our very handy house help slash amazing sewer's next project is slip-covering the sofa. And if I continue enumerating all the stuff that needs to be done in this space, you'll be running outta here 'cos of sheer boredom! It's that *toooot* long!  -RANT OVER-

But once in a while in this little house of ours, there are those simple projects that makes a huge difference. Those things that gives me instant gratification in just a few minutes. Done! TADA!

CASE IN POINT: Letter holder
I bought this last year at Ross (oh how I miss him!) together with the pink one in my bedroom. I knew it has a place on our living space for our mails. You know instead of scattering all of them on all table tops within the door's reach.

But it kinda looks lonely on that big spot. She needs some company.

Enter Vintage Printable. I spared one hour of my life looking through all the collection and saved everything I think that there's even the slightest possibility that I'll use someday. But when I saw a bunch of colorful stamp prints they have, I knew exactly where I'll put them.

It adds a lot of fun and whimsy to the otherwise very serious space. You know me, I'm all about fun and color.

Mails with stamps goes a long way, in every sense of the word. (or phrase?)

Here's another print I found at Vintage Printable:
paris print, vintage print, gold frame
It's not centered, I know.

Do you know any other source of free prints? I have lots more hours I could spare. Imagine a folder full of print goodies you can turn to when you need some quick art fix!
