Curious Sofa's Subway art!

I'm sure by now everyone in the blog world knows about subway art and almost as equally knows about

Debbie from Curious Sofa Diaries!

Well she is Amazing with a capital "A"! She is so talented and quite frankly my idol! I recently bought myself an early Christmas gift that I had been searching for, for quite some time. I was tempted to make one but time stopped me from doing so. I happened to peruse the Internet and decided to check out
Debbie's shop and lo and behold, to what do my wandering eyes did appear...... but this magnificent subway roll with my favorite obsession...Paris and some of it's famous attractions scrolled all over it!!

I think I hung it in several spots around the house but was never completely satisfied. Then one day it hit me like a mack truck!
I had the perfect wall in my bedroom. It's like it was made for this exact piece! I just knew it would fit wonderfully!

Ok, isn't it fantastic? This was before I decorated for Christmas.

And now with a little twinkle and color!

Claire saw me snapping pictures and just had to get in on the action! She recently started taking piano lessons and had just learned "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas"!

I'm pretty sure I've never done a post on our bedroom so welcome!

I love our bed except when I was pregnant! It was so hard to climb up into it! I still don't know how I did it!

My reading area! Great place to curl up with a good book!

These are directly across from the bed! My all time favorite pictures of Claire for her first birthday!

I thought I'd hang some snowflakes for the two flakes that sleep below! Ha, I'm sure my husband will love that!

I have a thing for religious statues! My mother gave me my first Virgin Mary when I was 16 and the others I've found at garage sales and antique stores. I've never spent more than $8 on any of them.

I wonder if my collecting them will help me get into those pearly gates?

Well, I'm at least hoping my Mother is putting in a good word for me!

A bit of funny I enjoyed reading and thought you would too.....
