There’s been so much happening lately that I don’t know where to begin. Most of it revolves around us purchasing our first home! You might have seen the announcement on my House Of Jeffers Instagram feed, but we are now homeowners, and it’s exciting, stressful, rewarding and nerve wracking all at once. It was a long road to get to this place – took many years to find a home, but luckily, the perfect house for us came about, and now, it’s ours. I’m hoping to share more of it once we get settled. Right now, we’re living out of boxes and figuring out where everything goes. Progress over time I’m sure will happen… but lately, it’s been a little chaotic with the boys getting their bearings in the house, and me adjusting to the new space and layout. All good things though.
And speaking of good things, summer means I have some time to find more murals to share with you! This gorgeous yellow tulip mural is brand new as part of Montclair’s thriving art movement that they continue to build. I watched the progression of the mural being painted on Bloomfield Avenue through the Montclair Center Bid Instagram page, and on a day when we were out doing our typical Saturday family thing, I knew I had to stop by and take some photos in front of it.
I’m really enjoying finding more places like this, and objects to photograph that speak to my love for bold colors, (unicorns) and all-things whimsy. Photography is another passion of mine, and while I would never dare to call myself a professional, I do enjoy the perspective I can bring in making something I love look even more magical through an image. I’d love to start my own Etsy shop with photography prints… and maybe once I get the house settled, I can do it. Someday.
And since I’m obsessed with murals, I wanted to share some of my favorite bloggers who also have a penchant for standing in front of bright walls in stylish attire. Check out these lovely ladies who love murals, too!
