Simple but Special

I wanted to display some of Poppy's artwork and came up with this very simple idea.

Jute rope and clothespins:

I like very simple things. Shaker style all the way baby. I also wanted the artwork to stand out and the ability to easily update the display. This is what I did:

I just tacked some rope to the wall and hung our favorite masterpieces:

I love the way it looks, almost like Poppy did it herself:) I hung it in her play area for all of us to enjoy and it fits right in. I think it's a great way to encourage creativity and make her feel special. "Feel special", can you tell I've been watching a lot of Mister Rogers lately?

I might do something like this as our collection grows (picture found here):

kids drawings as art

But for now this is just perfect:

Sorry for the partial nudity. I can't keep clothes on the girl:) More on that tomorrow!
