"365 Days of Happiness"

For the past several years I've been looking for something to put on the wall above my bed. I've perused different websites that sell art, the aisles of Hobby Lobby, Michaels and other craft stores, but I never found anything I liked enough, so I decided to just bide my time and not settle for something that I didn't really love. I pleased to say I've finally found something that I love.

I love colors and bright, pretty things so when I was looking on Etsy's website and saw the different pieces on QiQi Gallery's page I knew I had found what I was looking for! There were so many paintings that I really liked and I knew I couldn't go wrong with any of the paintings, so looked at all of the pieces and narrowed it down to a few different ones and consulted my mom and sister Chandra. Ultimately I decided on the one called "365 Days of Happiness." It was bright and beautiful and I knew I just had to have it!

(I love the title of the painting. I'm pretty much the happiest person I know, and I'm happy 365 days a year, so I felt like it was meant to be!)

I ordered the painting last Saturday night, it shipped on Monday and arrived in the mail on Friday. My mom said she didn't feel comfortable hanging it by herself since there are four different canvas panels (and I hate crooked pictures!), so I asked our friend Linda to help us out. She came down last night with her laser level and husband Mike after a little measuring it was up on my wall.

Here are pictures. I know I  love it; what do you think?!

I love it! I'll just "borrow" it when I come visit next. It would look nice in any room in my house!

Love it! In fact, I think I had even pinned that on pinterest at one time or another because I loved it so much!

Hi Heather,

Great choice...and good for you not settling on something that wasn't exactly what you wanted...worth the wait :)

It's great! I too, waited until I found just the right picture after redorating our living room. Every time I look at it I just love it and it brings me joy and satisfaction that I waited instead of settling for just anything.
I also wondered, are there a total of 365 swirls...AKA blossoms, leaves????? It looks like it could be. Not that I am about details or anything.

Hi Heather, what a beautiful picture. The beautiful colours matched by the vibrant design is especially georgeous. I'm in Australia havent seen anything like it here, you lucky girl. Lorna.
