Magnolia Love

First I want to apologize for not posting in so long, but after closing on our first home the last week of July I have been so incredibly busy trying to make our fixer upper a home!  I will have lots of before and afters coming soon but we are still in the midst of a ton of projects so things are not quite at the point where I want to share just yet.  The main projects I have been working on have been my living room and dining room and my 2 year olds room.  For the last year or so I've been collecting photo's of Magnolia trees and flowers because I plan on doing a photo and art wall of just magnolias.  Magnolia trees are near and dear to my heart because not only did I grow up with one in my back yard that I climbed daily, but my Grandmother had a huge one in her front yard in Georgia where I would have tea parties under when i went for visits in the summer.  I also think the magnolia flower is just perfect and beautiful and I love that the tree stands for southern pride and strength!   Oh and did I mention that Steele Magnolias is in my top 5 of all-time favorite movies!  I recently purchased 3 new things to hang on my magnolia wall so I now think I have enough to put it together.  Check out my new etsy purchases ( I just love Etsy!).

I am thinking of doing my magnolia wall in my dining room around my vintage white china cabinet that was a housewarming gift from my wonderful Momma!  What do you think?
