Bow Ties!!

I say if you have a love for something particular........
.....something like bow ties......

.....then, just go with it...

...that way, you're bound to be surrounded by things that make you smile. This winking little mug makes me smile every morning!

In our front hall, you will be greeted by this dapper dude....

This piece titled, "I Love That Tie!" is by Duke Kruse, a friend and local artist.... his grand opening a few months ago, I fell in love with that tie too and said "That piece is mine!" 

With the help of my creative framer, I was able to take my love for bow ties one step further, and if you look closely at the black frame...'ll see a surprise.....

I glued bow tie noodles to the frame! How else was I going to have a custom bow tie frame?? A girls gotta do what  a girls gotta do!

AND the Mr. Benny silhouette that resides in our front living room, finally has it's final touch!

It adds a perfect dash of color to the black wall....

.....and if you do happen to come to my front door, 
you will be greeted by this little guy....

....sporting a bow tie...because he's a classy little dude..... 

...and a perfect gentlemen! I think he needs a few more colors. What do you think??

Do you have a similar, silly, kind of love??

I hope this inspires you to find a few ways to incorporate the things you love into your decor! 


  1. AHHH! Bigfoot needs one too!

  3. What an awesome thing to love. I have a huge love going for polka dots but it's not quite as adorable as bow ties. I need to get a whimsical love:) I CANNOT wait to see the entire entry way. It looks amazing.

  4. This entire post is so awesome, I almost can't stand it! Bow ties on the frame? So great! And I just love the bowties you added to your art piece AND dog.


  5. I like bow ties cause they are much lighter than neckties. Whenever I need something to accentuate the clothes that I am wearing, I always bring one because it can be put in the pocket and its also light...
