Nauvoo Trip and Wall Decor

We just got back from a family vacation with Bill's Family to a few Church History sites.  We stayed a few days and Nauvoo, Ill.  The temple there is gorgeous!!!  We were able to go to the Nauvoo Pagant while we were there.
Here are a couple of pictures that I took of the Temple, I had fun on photoshop with them!
Before we left on vacation I finished this wall, I just didn't have time to blog about it.
I had all of the frames, I just had to spray paint them black!
Then I lined a foam core poster with burlap.
The wreath holder is from RodWorks.
I did a little iron-on directly on the burlap.
I got the birdcage and the label from Graphics Fairy.
I used houndstooth scrapbook paper behind the iron-on.
I typed in the scroll label "Las Luces...Juntos Para Siempre".
Which means "the lights...Together Forever"
If y'all know me you can see something that looks familiar...
My hubby served a mission for our church in Argentina, so it was fun to add in the spanish in my decor.
I hope y'all are having a fabulous summer!


  1. Love the framed artwork, Jenny, and the black & white photo of the temple is awesome!!

  2. I too love Nauvoo! We went there about 8 years ago when my Grandparents were serving a mission there! Great memories!
    I love the wall art! I would have never thought to use foam board (which my $ happens to always carry) Thanks for the inspiration-as always!! Also-congrats on the 2nd blog-super cute stuff!
    Hey-I wanted to ask you-does your ward do a super saturday. (an marathon day of all things creative) I hate them! SOOO much work! Just wondering if you guys did something similar that was just half the work with all the fun! I would love any ideas you want to share with me! I have to plan until the end of year on Wed. so I would love to pick your brain!! Thanks in advance Jen!

  3. I love your pictures from Nauvoo! I'm pretty sure you could sell those at an LDS craft boutique.

  4. Beautiful! I love your wall art.

  5. That black and white Nauvoo picture is great! Good job girl!
