a little bit of picture framing
New prints with DIY mat board
A few weeks ago I decided to redo the prints on my wall. I had a few etsy finds that needed new homes, and was kind of over my old faux-ornate frames, so trekked out to Ikea to get a bunch of modern ones.
I also invested in a mat cutting ruler, bevel cutter and some sheets of mat board, so I could cut the mats to suit my prints properly. It was hard at first but heaps of fun once I got the hang of it. Might post a tute about that soon!

Keep Calm and Ride On - love this print, matches my wall!
Another bit of prettiness making me happy around my flat - this amazing bunch of native (ish) flowers that I got to take home from a friends' "non-wedding" celebration. There were bunches like this everywhere and I was so excited to be able to take a bunch home! They did them all themselves - fantastic huh??
