~Love it!!


I received my vinyl letters today and I had to adhere them right away (of course)!! This is how they look and I LOVE IT!! I am so glad that I thought of this, I suppose I could have cut the letters out and stenciled them, but that would not have looked as "sleek" as it does now...


I think you should be able to "click" on this picture and enlarge it to see the whole thing better. When I reduce them in size, sometimes they get a bit "grainy". I know monitors differ in color, the phrase that I put up is a "rich" brown (not black) and the lighting at times, show darker/lighter - depends on the light. The hand-painted "torn" looking edge it a chocolate brown, so they go pretty well together. From whatever chair I am working in, I can see this and it makes me smile....Because life is really a JOURNEY and it is not a Destination...

Here is the last part of my "Word-age"...see the little "Monkey-Cat" studio ~Skelly~ by Laurie, peeking out in the corner? I love him and glad I got him - So glad I was able to get one of Laurie's sculptures. Today is a bit chilly, but the SUN is SHINING....so I will take it. I love when the sun is shining, makes everything all better. Just hanging around the house today. Sydney and I are going to be working in the studio after a bit. I hope you each have a grand day! Blessings, ~Tonya

Tonya,
Love the wording on the wall!! It's perfect for your room. My DD has put some of vinyl lettering up on the walls of her home and I really love the look, but not sure if it will stick to the plaster walls that we have in our house.
