Hi. Yes, I'm here. Just busy like you are. I do need to blog more. Lately, I've been feeling uninspired, but the beautiful spring weather is getting my wheels turning again. So, I thought I'd share a little photo that inspired me recently. As I was flipping back through my magazines again yesterday, something caught my eye in the latest issue of House Beautiful. In designer Connie Newberry's home, I found a few photos that drew me in but I just noticed a detail in one bedroom that led me to a great idea.



Do you see it? She blew up photos of foreign currency and used them as art in a boy's room. Genius. I'm always looking for creative art ideas and this one seems like a no-brainer. Not sure why I haven't thought of it before. 

My husband travels to faraway lands for his scuba diving/underwater photography and often brings back foreign money that wasn't worth exchanging. So we've got all kinds of cool, colorful money lying around with no use. That's about to change.
See the pagodas on a couple of them?

And I love the animals . . . 
I've been looking for some art for Pierce's room, so this seems like a great solution. It's like a unique souvenir that he can look at every day. Now, just to decide which ones to use. I'm thinking red, blue and green ones since those are the colors in his room. 

What do you think? Are you on board with this idea? If you don't have access to foreign currency, you can always find photos online. 

Now, I've got to go make it rain in my son's room. Never thought I'd say that.
