If you are visiting from SimpleMom, welcome. Today’s post happens to feature beautiful wall art as well.
It is downright encouraging and inspiring to find people who are following their passion. One of those people is Jeanne Winters. She’s a devoted wife and mom, and she’s also a designer, author and serious artist who is intentional about adding meaningful beauty into her home by “fusing faith and decor”. She had me at designer.
Jeanne makes adding a little beauty look so simple. The surprising thing is, it IS simple, and then she gives us the tools to follow her lead at her blog.
Remember our swap meet last year? I made my friend Jen shout out instructions to everyone who attended. Jeanne had a swap as well. Of course, she had to be all organized and Jeanne about it and made these charming invitations and numbers so everyone could swap in an orderly fashion. Then she made it downloadable so we could all use them too. I just love that.
Naturally, Jeanne and DaySpring got together and wouldn’t you know, they have something great for us?
A word about DaySpring
DaySpring is Nesting Place’s biggest sponsor. I like them for lots of reasons, firstly, they have cute stuff, I mean, if their stuff wasn’t cute, no matter how great they were, there would be no relationship. They are wonderful people, they believe in meaningful beauty and, not only that, they make it a point to find regular people, moms like us, who are doing their art, and they feature us. Did you hear that? DaySpring makes it a habit to feature real people like Lisa Lenoard, Lindsey Cheney, Studio SDG, Holly Christine, Jennifer from Studio JRU, even The Nester. I’m thrilled to support a company who supports women like me. You don’t see Pottery Barn going out and partnering with bloggers and mom artists and then featuring them in their shops.
This is a photo of a wall in Jeanne’s house. Like all of us, she has an artist inside of her, but she has let her’s loose on canvas, with a bit of a retro twist.
Her canvases are framed up in thick rustic frames and are available through DaySpring. Don’t they look nice stacked up in my breakfast area?
These are huge, substantial pieces measuring 25 x 21 inches. Even though I knew the dimensions I was surprised at their wonderful size when I got them. They look good alone or in a group, and there’s no glass over the canvas, thank the Good Lord, you know how I dislike glass. You can see the entire collection here, I have a group of three in my home.
I like to think she created this one especially for me. She didn’t. But, I like to think she did. The verse at the bottom is Numbers 6:24.
Jeanne also wrote a book called Inspirational Home. It’s got ideas with photos on every page about how to incorporate words of encouragement into your home. And every idea is very do able. You could make all your Christmas gifts this year.
DaySpring is giving away one book for every 100 comments & three random winners will win a framed canvas of their choice. I would suggest the Bless our Nest but, you are free do do whatever cutes your loot. Check out the entire Jeanne Winters Collection and be sure to leave a comment to enter to win.
