Hang It Up...

This is the wall I face, while working in my home office.
I only have to glance to the left to see the bird feeders, yard, gardens and river.
I always wish that empty little space to the left of the shelves were filled with something.
Something pretty and happy.
But it's a small, 
awkward space and I didn't think I would ever find something that would fit,
and something that I liked as well.

Enter Pier 1 Imports, they have the most amazing "Wall Ware" 
I found something that I love and fit's in the space perfectly.

This pretty Shutter, with clothes pins attached, for displaying whatever your heart desires.
It is perfect for this spot 
and I knew I could make it pretty and fun.
And it would be easy to change out the pictures when I wanted to.

Here's a close up of what I picked to display.

Here's a close up of the bottom...

and a close up of the top.
I used photographs, pictures and cards, meaningful items.

This is the doorway to the kitchen, which is then open to the family room.

And although this is a working office, I think it looks pleasant, colorful and happy...
a place I enjoy working, crafting, blogging and taking pictures of the birds!



  1. Hello Debbie! Your office space is pretty! I like the use of the shutter with the clips and photos. Such a cute idea! Have a happy day!

  2. What a happy and pretty office space you have, Debbie. LOVE the shutter. It is perfect in that spot. Such a lovely idea to display with different mementoes which you can randomly change. Love the peek into your kitchen and family. What a glorious, light-filled space.

  3. LOVE the shutter and may have to use this idea!!

  4. Its important to have a nice space to work in at home or at work. I always made sure I had some of my things around me when I worked. Just makes the space more important to you. Your space looks great.

  5. Debbie, I love this so much that I just ordered 2 from Pier One.
    I have 2 places that I need to fill, and this would be perfect.
    Thank you so much for sharing this here.

    1. good lisa, i hope it was still on sale!!!

  6. Great idea... Your room is beautiful!

  7. It's perfect - and I love the clips so you can change the photos and cards that you display (not that I actually would, but I bet you will!)

  8. OhMyGosh!! Look at that family room. Does it have a glass ceiling? What a sunny, happy home you have!

  9. I think this office space is so lovely! It looks like a happy peaceful place to work. I like the shutter idea with all the endearing items that you love to have near. It's all way sweet! Blessings and hugs~

  10. What a pretty little office and the shutter is wonderful! Such a nice view of your charming home from the doorway, too! Sweet display of photos :) Sending hugs xo Karen

  11. I confess that it looks a tad better than my office, but do you have a fridge and recliner? Hmm? So there. :)

  12. Beautiful, Debbie. You really have an eye for decorating.

  13. You found the most perfect 'wall filler'. I love it! Pier1 is sometimes my downfall; I have to stay away for a while. :)

    The home that you and Chuck have made is one of the best beautiful I've ever seen. And, with your creative gene and his; well, just wonderful.


  14. That is the cutest wall I have seen. The addition of the shutter is perfect.

    I've noticed that you take the time to have or take pictures of you and your husband. What a treasure for you both and your kids. My daughter wanted a picture of my husband and I to hang in my grandson's room so she could call attention to it. She wanted him to see our picture often because we live 5 hours away. We didn't have any. You have inspired me to capture the moment in a personal way when we go places.

    1. thank you sally!! we have a lightweight tri-pod that folds and can actually fit comfortably in a backpack that we almost always carry. our children are grown now and we enjoy our "selfies", which we actually take with the trip-pod!!!

      i couldn't find a link to a blog for you. if you have one, please send me a link!!!

  15. A beautiful spot and it fits you perfectly..

  16. Hello Debbie!:) So nice to visit you, and see your pleasant office space. The shutter is just perfect, and such a good idea. It looks lovely.:)

  17. I love what you have done with your office. It is so inviting. I think I need to redo mine.
    I love that shutter too. You have such good ideas Debbie. I don't know if I have ever seen your office before.
    Have a great day!

  18. What a marvelous idea! shutter with clothes pins! Love it...
