No. 143-NoLa Spot

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

First off, just wanted to say thank you so much for all of the love!
I was overwhelmed with the response from the blog hop!
Happy to see some of you all will be back :)

Also, I'm working on a giveaway so check back soon for that :D

It's been awhile since I've done a No. 143 post so I thought it was time. Slowly but surely my little apartment is coming together! And more posts of this kind will be sure to follow.

Just a recap, No. 143 is my apartment and sometimes I share photos of how I incorporate my love of scrapbooking and photos into home decor.

Like for example, [Exhibit A]

This is my New Orleans wall. It's right across from my bed and I wake up and look at it every morning :)

MT purchased this painting while we were in New Orleans in May. We liked it because of the red background (his favorite color) and because he played the trumpet in high school and I played the saxophone in middle school. Plus, it's a travel memento and who doesn't like those!

The "Jamie" twist are the shadow boxes (which are now discontinued from IKEA so if you want some GO GET THEM!!)

I documented the whole trip via iPhone with my Instagram app. Which doesn't make for excellent images, but does make for a fun photo effects. Printing them at the 6x6 size was not recommended and the images themselves are a bit blurry and grainy,
I do not care!
From this far away, they look just fine to me :)

I added some ephemera from the trip, beads we scooped up on Bourbon Street and the plastic grenades we got when we purchased a Hand Grenade (lethal alcoholic beverage).

And know I have a perfect 3-dimensional scrapbook on my wall!
