Absolutely free artwork for your Frame TV

If you know me, you know I'm a bit obsessed with my tv.  It's one of those framed ones that I pined for for years before finally treating myself. I don't know what took me so long. (Oh yea right. I'm cheap.)  It's just a regular tv when its on but allows you to leave digital artwork displayed when its off. It's a small difference but just looks so much better than the usual black mirror. 

The maker offers an artwork subscription service but it seemed a bit limited (also see cheap point above).  I quickly realized its pretty easy to load anything you want on there (albeit not the most intuitive setup) so I got to work to find artwork I enjoyed.  I like to change it up with the seasons and holidays. Much to my shock I've had a really hard time finding completely free artwork for the Samsung Frame TV.  There are lots of sellers on Etsy charging (which is totally fine and worth it if you are in a rush or don't want to change the artwork 200x a year!) but truly free, no strings attached?  Slim pickings!

So since I just went through the trouble to find some fun Valentine's Day artwork and set it up in the right dimensions for the Frame TV, I thought it would be worth sharing.  Just download these images to your phone and then use your tv's app to upload them to the artwork section. I think they look best without a matte but feel free to play around with it. You're welcome!

Extra points for anyone who notices my orchids are reblooming. Yes, they do come back!

Halloween 2021: Harry Potter Comes to Brooklyn

Look I blogged!  As lonely and neglected as I've allowed this blog to become I couldn't not share the Halloween decorations.  This year's theme is Harry Potter and was directly requested by Agatha.  How could I not oblige? My big plans of making a giant mandrake may have been scratched due to lack of time but we got our decorations up in plenty of time to enjoy the absolute best season to be in Brooklyn - autumn.

And of course we will be decked out as Harry Potter characters come Halloween. If you are looking for a super easy costume that is actually warm and comfy, I highly recommend this green velvet robe for the Professor McGonagall cosplay.  It's like wearing a bathrobe. I wish it was socially acceptable to wear it around town.

Wallpaper Mural Love

Hello lovelies!  Like many of you, we have been home A LOT this year so I've been making little updates along the way.  Things I always thought about doing, I've finally made time to get to.  I had been lusting after this very specific monochrome wall mural for years. Aside from just liking it's look, it also  reminded me of the "relaxation room" in the Four Seasons in Paris. And you know how I am with travel memories.

Admitedly, I was very reluctant because I am traumatized by my experiences removing wallpaper from other homes.  In particular one room that I had to peel off the wallpaper in one centimeter scraps until my fingers were worn down to nubbins.  Did not want to ever do that again!  But finally I got over my fear and went for it.

The reviews on this paper indicated it would be easy to DIY but because it was a mural as opposed to a repeating pattern, I knew that if I made even one little mistake or tear to this paper, I would have ruined the entire thing so I hired someone to hang it.  I got lucky and found someone great by accident and he did an amazing job (for my local friends, I'm happy to share his info if you need wallpaper hung!).  He also told me that if I ever wanted to remove it, it would be very easy to do without damaging the walls.

Not gonna lie - I absolutely love it!  I know its not for everyone but this is just what this room needed. It just adds so much character and whimsy to this space. I keep walking in here to check it out. Why didn't I do this years ago? 

For those of you on TikTok, please come join me over there. It's my addiction.

5 Attainable Pieces of Original Artwork to Hang on Your Wall

If there was an ever a time to support small artists and creators, this is it.  I know so many of us are spending more time at home than ever so what better time to find some beautiful pieces to look at while we are spending so much time at home.  

Selecting art can be such a hard decision but I encourage you not to take it too seriously. Just find something you connect with and it will bring you joy.

Here are 5 (reasonably affordable) pieces of from artists I've been crushing on...

This dramatic skyscape by KatyLeigh is memorizing whether you see the clouds or not.

You know I'm a sucker for creepy portraits and this girl with bird by Nursel Fine Art checks all the boxes. 

This little crushed toothpaste painting by Kristine Kainer would be perfection in a bathroom.

If you need a piece for your kitchen, I'm loving the fried egg paintings Anna Shevel has done.  Pop art for those who like to cook!

And finally this pastoral painting by Sara Tubens is both calming but hard to look away from.

Any of these strike your fancy? Or do you have other artists you ar crusing on? Please share their work in the comments!
