I have wallart - for Five Dollars Total!

I've had a simple wallart saying above the window for the last few years, but I've always wanted to decorate the door wall as well. When I was shopping at Ross yesterday, I found a pale pastel flowering vine set of wall stickers that looked like it would do the job perfectly. The pink and brown stickers are from Ross, and the others are wall stickers from the Dollar Tree. I think I'm happy with the end result. It's not too 'little girly', but it definitely reflects my personality. And I've still got a whole sheet of the pink flowers left over (no more vines, but lots of flowers) in case I change my mind about the decoration and want to add something else. But the best thing is that they're easily-removable stickers so if I get tired of them I can take them down without trashing my nice yellow paint, and the landlord can't get cross with me for decorating the walls. Actually, he wouldn't mind, he's a great landlord... but removable is ALWAYS good! I've used the Dollar Tree removable stickers before to add colour to our bathroom and kitchen, and once they're pulled off you'll never know they were ever there. I wish they still sold the nice ones, but they've gone out of fashion or something. The Dollar Tree mostly focuses on selling food and toiletries and holiday junk nowadays, and they have hardly any art and craft supplies. :( I get what I can at Ross, but the Dollar Tree was cheaper!

PS. You can also see my wardrobe card display (every time I get a card in the mail for a swap or whatever, I put it onto my wall and leave it there till the slats are too full to fit any more!), and my beautiful curtains. I'm proud of both! Nobody can see into our windows on that side (we're upstairs and there's an empty factory opposite us, and the palm tree outside our apartment has grown enough that it covers 50% of the window anyway) so I don't need to worry about blocking the view from the outside, I just needed to prettify the window and to distract the eye a little from side empty factory.

I really like your wall stickers. I would love to do some of those in our living room. I also REALLY like the way you do your cards in the slats of the closet door. What a great idea.

I used to have a black kitty too. His name was Rocky. :) Now I'm owned by a Russian Blue named Sasha.

WOW, what a fantastic way to display cards. Although I don't do craft shows, this would be a great idea for anyone who needs a relatively easy way to create a great display. I love all the new wall art out there...wish I had some wall space that it would work on. Very nice!
