Monday, Monday….

Monday, Monday…..
Just as the Mama's and Pappa's sang…every other day of the week…every other day is fine…but Monday, Monday…won't go away…
So…here's to another Monday…and a very good Monday indeed since we are finally getting some much needed rain!
Here's a glimpse at the wonderful Savannah Oaks I had framed from our trip that you can see on the blog post I did a few weeks ago…

I really can't decide how or where to hang them. At home or at the beach? All together? Or apart?

Just one? Or does it look lonely?

It's suppose to be an odd number…I know…I already had these nails and was just trying them out! I may hang a transferware plate over it or even a tiny sunburst? We shall see!

I can order one more so that I can hang all six together! Wish I had a creative moment in me to figure out how to hang five, instead! I would love to hang five together in a staircase, on a large blank wall or in a bookcase….it's just not happening at my house at the moment! I may have to call my dear friend, Sharon to help me out!

Thank heavens I remembered that I had found this fabulous artist on line after I was home from our trip!

 If I really want one more all I have to do is figure out which tree I don't already have and order it…

Hopefully, she will have it in and I can order it from her online Etsy shop!
There are so many different options! What would you choose?

 I really love the look of a large grouping all together on one hand….

Until I see a cozy nook with framed prints tucked in…

And I even like mixing them with another shape like a sunburst mirror!

So many wonderful choices!

I will just have to study my options a little while longer until I'm totally sure of my decision!

Until then, I will just enjoy today and the fact that it's Monday! If you get a chance I would love for you to visit my sweet friend Teresa's blog Splendid Sass! She did a post on my shop today and I am most grateful! She has always been such an encouragement to me and I really admire her and her incredible blog! Thanks, Teresa!

Happy Monday!


  1. Love wall collages, they are my favorite! Hope you had a good weekend. xo

  2. Loved seeing these! Beautiful work as always!

  3. Ha Carolyn! We think alike...I began my today blog with Monday Monday..had that song stuck in my head...but went with Sonny and Cher instead :-)...loved your images and thanks for your sweet comments. I think I'll be ok...lots to do to take my mind away from the ending and focus on beginning!

  4. I would not leave one alone as you asked. As you show from picture, the grouping is the way to go.

  5. Oh Carolyn, get another one! Six is much more versatile than five. The framing turned out fabulous....I love the "no matting" look....doesn't take away from the trees. You can always keep four and sell the single at your shop?? I'm heading over to Teresa now. Happy Monday!
    Cheers from DC,
    PS - Thanks so much for your very kind and gracious comments, friend :-) You really made my day.

  6. I like the large grouping idea. Order another! And I love the chair in your first photo.

    Have a happy 4th!

  7. What foresight you had..they look STUNNING! I love groupings like this........and if you can swing six, you get my vote!

  8. These are gorgeous, Carolyn. You have a good eye for all things beautiful! Loved your feature on Teresa's blog today!

  9. I love gallery walls. Yours will look fabulous hung together.

  10. There is just too much beautiful here, Carolyn. I LOVE these groupings, and I don't know which I would choose. I will have to visit.
    Thank you for sharing.

  11. Hi Carolyn, your shop is beautiful!! The pen & inks are wonderful. Really like the four or six idea. Your post is perfect timing! I just discovered old letters, thinking of framing. thank you :)

  12. These are SO beautiful! I hope you hang them all together :)

  13. I found your blog via glad I did! I would hang them altogether at home! They are lovely!

  14. Love these... They came out fabulous!
