Sunny Faces from Taos



These hand-painted sunny faces are souvenirs from a trip to Taos, New Mexico that my husband and I took about 5 years ago. Finally they are out of the box and decorating the porch doorway in my quilt room. This room is the perfect place for decorations that are a little over-the-top for my husband's taste. Haha. He does like quilts decorating the rest of the house though.


What are you decorating your sewing space with?

What treasures. They look great around the door, making sure you're smiling. Great color inspirations for your sewing room.

It's fun to have something from a trip that brings back happy memories. I think they're fun and happy.

I decorate my studio with my husband's photos and my beaded icons.

I love them soooo much!! Perfect place for them too. Lots of color, you can't go wrong. I have colorful geckos decorating the entrance to my studio.

Funny about over-the-top...I painted the walls of my sewing room each in a different color: lime green, lavender, orange, and pink. Thanks for showing your lovely mementos!

Sadly, my sewing room has little decoration and is quite plain. I need to get in there and spruce the place up. Your sunny faces are adorable and I could see where they would brighten the room.

I have decorated with two quilts and on my design wall I have some small memories from my trip to Peru.

My sewing space is filled with my favorite quilts. Your Taos treasures would make great quilts, too!

Those are great!

Your decorations are perfect. My sewing room is decorated mostly with cat hair.

They do look nice there, very happy looking! Well, since all my sewing had to moved out into the garage, I would say my garage is decorated much better than before. All those colors and quilting gadets make it a nicer place. :-)
