Gallery wall in the making

I know having a gallery wall is kind of a cliche in the blogger world but I personally like them.  To me, gallery walls tell an interesting story about the people who live in the home.  So guess what this blogger is putting together?  Yep, a gallery wall.

I originally didn't have plans to put one together but that all changed when I bought the angel wings.  I didn't know where I was going to put it in my house but I knew I couldn't leave the boutique without bringing it home.  Me and simple, artistic angel wings get along better than peanut butter and jelly.  So thanks to the wings my idea of creating a gallery wall began.

I found this frame at Kirkland's and it was on sale for only $7 plus some change.  I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it in its current state or spray paint it white.

Hobby Lobby is having some GREAT markdowns right now and because of this I was able to score this mirror for only $10 (normally retails for $29.99).

As a nod to our current home state, I wanted to include something Arizona in the gallery wall.  Unfortunately, several Borders stores closed shop here recently, but fortunately for me I was able to get this postcard for practically nothing.

Of course, our beloved home state of Texas will also be represented.  I think I am going to order this print.

I'm not in any hurry to put the gallery wall together because I only want items that are meaningful or that I really like.  However, I do have some ideas of things I want to put up there such as favorite quotes or a silhouette of our pug.  So far though I like the way it is looking.

oh the gallery wall...i talked about how mine was growing growing growing with empty frames! ha!
I love all the things you picked out! I'm loving all the states with the hearts too!! AZ is my first love! How did you ever leave TEXAS though? My best friend is from Texas and she says she misses it but not the WEATHER:0) Can't wait to see how this turns out!

I love gallery walls. Gosh those angel wings are amazing they would look so good on the wall. And the mirror. Gush gush!
I've printed all my fav photos onto black and white and framed them in black frames along my hallway and I smile every time I walk past.
Now I want one with angel wings ... wonder where I can find them in Australia?

The angel wings are gorgeous!!! Gotta love the Hob Lob! I've never heard of Kirkland's. What is it comparable to?
