eye spy with my little eye ...

... a new accessory in our bedroom ...

This was, without a doubt, the cheapest, easiest accent I've ever added to a room. I was crafting with HH last week when I discovered a piece of scrapbook paper that I'd forgotten about. "Wow," I pointed out to her, "this paper is pretty much the exact colours of our bedroom." 

Et voila:

As much of a scrapbooking nerd as I am, I actually had an extra 12x12 clip frame tucked away among my supplies, which only cost about $5 at Walmart anyway. 

Remember this nifty trick next time you're perusing the paper aisle.


  1. I love it!!!! I need something for our new spare bedroom with yellows & blues and haven't been able to find a thing I like. Going to check the Dollar Store at noon.. XX00

  2. Ooh, it really is perfect in your bedroom!

  3. I love it! What a cute idea! I love the brown and mint blue color combo - those are the colors we have in our bedroom too!

    Stopping by from SITS. Love your blog!


  4. what a fantastic idea! you could also glue it onto a stretched canvas if you didn't have a frame on hand. thank you for the tip!
