This gallery wall took me longer to do than the last one. That’s because this is a somewhat different gallery wall. This wall tells a story. My story.
I love flowers of all varieties. Then there are signs representing simplifying life; living a simple life. And the dream sign? Everyone has a dream.
And if we achieve our dream, we should look toward another. There is a “This House Loves Dogs” sign. You know I love dogs.
And if you look closely, you will see keys, and door hardware without knobs. This represents the doors I’ve had to go through to get here. And the keys are what opened them.
There are bird prints. You know how much I love birds and nature. The small mirror is for reflections.
Isn’t the top painting beautiful? I found it at my favorite antique mall in Jenks. Price: $18. I could hardly believe it. It is 3 feet long. And just look at the detail on the frame. I was smitten.
I have been gathering things for some time to create this wall. I sit right across from it when I work on my laptop. I wanted to remind myself of where I’ve been and where I am now.
I wanted to see my story in front of me every day. My life, depicted with symbolic objects that might mean something only to me.
This was the last thing acquired. A Nancy Medina painting. I have always loved her geraniums in a pot. I got this in the mail yesterday. It completed my symbolic wall.
You can find her art
here. She has been a reader of mine for some time. That meant a lot to me too.
While I’m at it, I’ll scan the room for you. The pupsters, front and center. Even Charlie stayed still for this one.
I grow more in love with the green paint color I painted the buffet every day. Such a soothing shade of green. Valspar’s Crushed Oregano.
