My new and improved Gallery Wall

Hey there friends...
Well like I mentioned in my last post when I showed you guys my new painting, this wall was getting changed yet AGAIN! In the last few years this wall had to go through at least five or six changes...which means I used A LOT of spackle and paint... otherwise it would have looked like swiss cheese!
This next shot was the most recent look...
...and now here's my new and improved gallery wall! (You can click on the pictures to enlarge them).
Everything you see here are things I already had except for the new painting of the boy with his dog. The frame I put it in I had and it fit perfectly...love it when things like that happen:)
When I saw the sun shining in I ran for my camera...we haven't had to many sunny days lately!
My mom helped me big time...two sets of eyes are always better then one! Before we even started to hang anything up we laid everything on the floor in front of the couch and then we began to play around with different arrangements. I highly recommend doing that...it makes the process much easier.
The little cypress tree I had from Christmas and I just filled the container with cranberries.
 Even though it's still looks good I'm getting tired of it so I don't think it will be around too much longer.
Love the simple look of this boxwood wreath in the weathered frame!
I changed the look on top of my table too by adding some live greenery in pretty pots along with a new magnifying glass I found in Marshall's right before Christmas.
Looking through the french doors from my dining room.
I love this new look and think this is the keeper!! It better be because we are having our hallway and living room painted next month by professionals so I don't plan on adding any more nail holes!
Thanks so much for stopping by...can't wait to hear what you think!

Looks fabulous Martina!!! I plan to do a gallery wall behind my sofa too. I have this rather large boring wall so I want some wood on it for texture then I plan to "gallerize" it!!!
Have a great weekend!!
