Speaking of botanical prints, this weekend I made us some wall art for our kitchen as we were all getting tired of staring at blank walls and longed for a little more coziness inside! I've been admiring vintage botanical prints for some time and found some really pretty ones that I thought might work - nice for the summer? I fixed them up a bit in photoshop and created pdf's to print out (thinking to share with you also if you so wish)! These are all 8.5" x 11" making it easy for any printer. I just taped mine up temporarily with gold striped washi tape till I can pick up some frames (probably white - like the RIBBA's from IKEA that I photoshopped the images into below). I'm thinking of also trying to make some poster sized ones with some of these as well - hope to share those with you soon too! (Wouldn't these also make really pretty wrapping papers)?
