Crushin' On Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln has definitely had his moment in the spotlight lately. From the Oscar winning movie Lincoln, to the New York Times bestseller Killing Lincoln, even celebrities are jumping on the bandwagon and naming their kids Lincoln. Our kitchen is even painted Gettysburg Gray! All this attention is of course for good reason seeing as our 16th president certainly is one of our most beloved, best known for ending slavery and telling the truth. That's why when I came across this ceramic Lincoln bust at a yard sale this past weekend for $3 I had to make him mine. He came with a few nicks but I knew I could easily fix him up and give him a spot of honor.

To fix the nicks I simply mixed a dab of brown paint with a dab of black and now he is like new. I can't even tell where the nicks were anymore!

These photos above are exactly true to life color-wise but when I snapped these next photos in our living room as the sun was setting he's looking much more like his copper counterpart.

To round out my new display I quickly Googled a Lincoln quote and some fun fonts to create this piece of art to lean against the back.

And if you love Lincoln as much as I do, here's a free printable for you!

Simply save it as a PDF for easy printing. Enjoy!

My Fall Decor 2013

Hey hey! Long time no blog, but you know the drill. Life has been busy and Evey is growing like a weed so I am just enjoying every moment with her and our little family. Since Fall is definitely one of my most favorite times of the year I didn't slack on the decorations and wanted to share my little house tour with you!

I hope you all are having a happy, healthy, and fun Fall! We are certainly enjoying the gorgeous weather and spending lots of time with family and friends. Another reason I've been so quiet here is that I've been flapping my trap over on my YouTube channel so definitely head on over there to see what I've been up to!
