Gallery Wall Art - Additions

My gallery wall of art and clocks in the dining room is probably my favourite thing in our house. I think it's an unexpected pop of colour when you're in the kitchen and it's become a real talking point whenever friends come over and I love that I created it from all the things that are special to me!
 
But it's an evolving gallery wall, nothing needs to be set in stone and permanent so I've added a few new treasures to it lately ...
 
 
Firstly, my rhino hook needed something to hang from it and for this I came across this gold LOVE ornament from Typo for $1. It's probably meant for the Christmas Tree but with that kind of bling why not have it hanging all year round I say!
 
 
The other art additions I picked up from my trip to Sydney last week. This ferris wheel photo block art I bought from The Rocks Markets by local artist Jackie Cooper. It is a perfect memento from our Sydney trip!
 
 
 
I also found this free art postcard when out having dinner in The Rocks which is promoting the upcoming movie The Wolf Of Wall Street. I grabbed it because the saying caught my eye and it's yellow and black the colours of my gallery wall!
 
 
I framed the post card over the top of the patterned page that I tore from a magazine, I thought that was freebie art and now with the post card I like it much better.
 
 
Putting the frame back on the wall and it looks like it was made to fit the space ... Party like a rockstar live like a king!
 
 
 
So with my recent additions, this is how the wall looks now. If I had to pick a favourite, I'd say it's the DIY rockstar postcard, you can't complain about a freebie!
 
 
What do you think of my new wall art additions?

    1. It took me months of collecting frames and art until I was happy with what I had ... then the brave part drilling holes and hooks in the walls for everything! But it is worth it once it's all up and you will wonder why you hesitated for so long :)

  5. Beautiful display of memories. I love the ferrous wheel, and the "Party like a Rock Star",
    Very eclectic and very attractive. It does not hurt a thing to have a memory attached to each item in your art display. It makes it special!
