A few months ago, I found this writing analysis website that allowed you to insert a paragraph of your writing into a program and it told you what famous author you wrote like. I put in one of my blog posts and got Ray Bradbury, and then I put in a piece of fiction I'd written.
And I got Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Combined with my current Sherlock obsession, I decided that over looking my desk where I write I needed a Sherlock Wall in my craft room.
Sherlock Holmes Silhouette: The dress was actually a test run for this DIY. I made an enlarged stencil and made the painting myself. It is painted with Provence Chalk Paint® and black acrylic.
The violin art: thrifted, This made it onto the wall because not only was it violins, the sheet music that lines it is a song with Star in the title. If you watch BBC Sherlock you'll know that he "deleted" the stars because they weren't important.
Copper Bull Head: Thrifted
Ceramic Cow Head: Barn Pretty. So Sherlock in the BBC Sherlock has a bull hanging in his living room, and I saw these two little guys and I couldn't resist. One day I might even put head phones on them.
Medical Illustration Bulletin Board: thrifted/DIY/Me, I DIYed a medical illustration into the frame of this bulletin board (which I hope will be used for my writing) as a little representation of Dr. Watson. There are more framed medical illustrations coming, I just have to matte them correctly. I got a cool old medical dictionary from work that I'm taking the pictures from.
Photos: Vintage Postcard of Philly from Philly Aids Thrift, Girl Shooting a Pistol antique photo from a consignment shop and "You Are Wonderful" from Citizen Rosebud. Letter on the other bulletin board from Megan Mae. This picture of the girl shooting is one of my favorite things I own.
So, as you can see, I get some pretty awesome stuff from where I work! I have a tutorial for the Sherlock art, if anyone is interested. It's been super fun sharing my new inspiring space with you! I'll post pics when I add more!
Until next time! - xo xo xo Meghan
