Have been trying to figure out paint colors for the walls, but have just decided I'm going all white. I plan on (re)hanging a lot of artwork so why should it compete with a wall color. Plus, if I painted the dining room yellow or something I might do that thing I hate and put up artwork that color coordinated and that's not what art is for.
Bought a print off Etsy and got a frame and mat at Michael's and I'm pleased as punch with the outcome.
I have a small dresser as a side table in my bedroom so it's currently resting on top of that, just leaning on the wall.
I also finally took these cottage prints out of frames that I had gotten for my mother nearly 30 years ago when I first started working and after she died I realized I just didn't like them, and to be honest I have no idea if she did either. I bought them because at the time the only art that was hanging in our house were these two pencil drawings she had gotten as a wedding present, and I assumed because that was all that was in the house (minus stuff my sister and I hung in our bedroom) that she must have liked them, and they were also of cottages... and I think I just wanted to show off a little that I could buy things. But I don't know if the only reason the wedding prints were hanging was that someone else got them for her and she felt obligated to put them up when she and my dad first moved into their house and she just never bothered to replace them. And I didn't want to do that too, just have things on my walls because someone else gave them to me or because I didn't bother thinking about what I wanted to surround myself with. So I replaced them with an ink drawing and a landscape print (that even though depicts an English vista still reminds me a bit of upstate NY. And it's just pretty.)
I also got a bunch of frames so I can hang all the playbills I have so far.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
