Warm Up Your Fall Home Decor with Posterjack


Fall is such a beautiful time of the year with the vibrant colours in nature. Our natural environment makes for beautiful backdrops for family portraits and individual shots. I love heading out with the boys this time of year to catch them in motion against the gorgeous reds, yellows and browns. These photographs make the best home decor decorations, they are personal, have a connection and not to mention visually stunning.

Finding a way to display these shots can be a challenge at times. You want your photographs to be displayed in a manner that encompasses their warmth and spirit without taking away from the natural elements of the shot itself.

So how do we accomplish this?

Posterjack has three simple home decor solutions for you to display your photography that includes canvas prints, mixed material and rustic mantels. Each of these items have their own unique element to help you tell your story.

Posterjack’s rustic mantels includes wood prints, barn wood prints and woodstand prints. Matching this to your home decor or even fall inspired theme decorations will really bring to life the decor while emphasizing the natural beauty of the outdoors.

For some added variety and depth, try using mixed art materials that includes metal, acrylic and photoboards to display your work. We have a display above our television and this concept works really well for us. You can also add in some natural elements with fall decorations, pinecones, woods, animals and so on.

Victoria Day Long Weekend Fun #WW w/linky

This past weekend we celebrated Victoria Day and had a wonderful long weekend. The weather cooperated for most of the weekend and we were able to open our pool (woohoo!!). Here is a medley of pictures highlighting our long weekend.

We were so happy that our pool had minimal cleaning to do once we pulled back the winter cover (last year the previous owner’s had closed the pool and it was just a dark, dirty mess!

We found this little guy swimming in the pool later on! He terrified me!

The hubby built himself a barbecue deck – was very proud of him!

And they surprised me with new furniture for the porch and flowers to accompany my morning coffee!

My favourite surprise was my new vegetable garden – it was so thoughtful of them! We had to move the cucumbers afterwards to their own area (who would have thought there was so much more to gardening then planting!).

Make sure to link up your Wordless Wednesday posts below so that I can visit you as well! Have a great day!

Moments of Thanks #findlumia

Time is flying by and my children are changing, growing right in front of my eyes. Sometimes life becomes too busy and stressful that I forget to take the time to stop and realize how blessed my life is. I forget that there is so much good in my life to be thankful for.
This past week I have spent a lot of time reflecting about all of these areas in my life that I have to be grateful for. I decided to capture these moments with the Nokia Lumia 1020 and share these moments with you.
Here is just a small portion of all the things I am grateful for in my life.
This picture of my son’s bike holds so much for me – it’s not just a bike but a symbol of his strength and health. In this moment, my son is strong and able to use this strength to ride his bike, run and play soccer. God willing, he will remain this way and continue to grow and remain healthy.
I love being in and around the water. Water brings with it power and life. It can calm and bring inner peace.
I am proud to be Canadian! We are blessed to live in a country of freedom and peace.
You can view more of the my moments of thankfulness in my Google + album here. Over the next few weeks I will be using my Nokia Lumia 1020 to bring to you a different theme each week.
What are the little things that you are grateful for in life?
Disclosure: I received the Telus Nokia Lumia 1020 as part of participating in the Finding the Story Within Challenge.
