In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Wall to Wall.”
What do you display on the walls of your home — photos, posters, artwork, nothing? How do you choose what to display? What mood are you trying to create?
At this time most of what was on my walls is packed away because I’m preparing to move. When the walls are decorated you’d find a huge colorful picture of vases. I have artwork that I’ve created sprinkled throughout my home. My friend created me a banner of The Lion of Judah that is hanging in my library. My church gives us posters that I frame and hang. I have ten of the twelve tribes of Israel to be framed and hung in my new home.
I choose colorful hangings because I thrive on color. Black and white prints will be incorporated next time. I hang artwork I like to look at that make me happy and capture the attention of visitors. When they ask I can tell the story behind them.
I have a creative friend that sends me cards for my birthday and holidays that I will display in a shadowbox. The cards fill my heart with joy because they are beautiful and she thinks enough of me to send them to me although we live several thousands miles away now. To her I’m never forgotten.
