Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

I have a wall in my foyer that was screaming for photos. My first thought was to go with the ever predictable matching frames and matted b&w photos. I have the frames and it was the obvious way to go. Then I got a bit inspired and started pulling a few random things together to create my "funky wall". I had a bit of angst about it for a while...
I am sure this look isn't for everyone, but seeing that I don't have any sort of symmetrical/ linear style to me whatsoever.. my random collection seems to work here. The #7 for our family of 7...picked this up at my favorite store Anthr0pl0gie. and a few of my favorite family photos ,cool little frames, blackboards, mirrors, shelves...
One of my favorite verses Jeremiah 29:11
The flag that was at my fathers funeral. I miss him desperately and it is a noble memento.
Our family portrait by Jackson age 5 at the time.

And while I was unsure of the whole funky junk wall in our foyer.. I was in the kitchen and I spotted this going down, and I knew that we are so the funky junk wall family... one kid scaling the wall, one dressed like Pocahontas, and one like a power ranger. It fits us just fine.
I want to do a bunch of before and afters of our new place. So far I have a ton of before photos, but not so many afters.

OH I LOVE IT!!!! SUPER COOL! Can't wait for those before and afters. Wish I could come over for a little, "to the right--to the right--oh that's perfect" decorating "help". PLEASE post before and afters. It gives me something to think about other than THAT. You KNOW what THAT is. ;-)
