Dear Sprinkle Goodness Reader,
A robot that makes clocks. How did the movie, Bicentennial Man, remind my husband of the unique clocks you'll find at Creative Clock Designs? Find out more here.

Dear Sprinkle Goodness Reader,
If you have empty wall space in your home...
...or you’d like to add more personality or elegance to your home décor...
Then, a tapestry is a creative way to do that.
Matt and I, for example, had empty wall space between our main door and a window. The available wall space is not that wide. Plus, being so close to the door, we couldn’t put anything there that might break (such as a framed picture).
Then, one Christmas we received a fabric tapestry called, “Home Rules,” from Matt’s nana. Lightweight, and only 9-inches wide, it fit perfectly in this empty, narrow wall space. It’s eye-catching and displays 12 Bible quotes – about love, honesty, counting blessings, and more.
For me, this tapestry has become a way to share my faith and beliefs. My hope is it gives family and friends a feeling of warmth and happiness (and maybe even help them in their faith journey) when they see it.
Well, this week, I learned about the online store, Save On Tapestries and I was excited to see they offer Religious Tapestries which includes tapestries of bible quotes, crosses, and angels like this one:
This imagery (of a guardian angel protecting children crossing a bridge) is one I grew up with.
This speaks to me.
But what might speak to you? What are you enthusiastic about? What could your wall space communicate through a stylish tapestry?
Save On Tapestries is one of the largest art wholesalers in North America. Through their website, you can buy directly from them (instead of paying retail) and save money on quality, international tapestry products such as wall hangings. Their website makes it easy to find the right tapestry for your home. For example, when you go to Save On Tapestries you can:
- Use their search tool at the top right-hand corner of their website. You can type in a keyword relevant to something that interests you (such as “flowers” to get results. When I did that, I found a selection of options including a tapestry woven in Italy on sale. The savings varied between 10 – 25% but everything was on sale!!).
- You can also search by price, artists, shape, or size.
Or you can:
- Browse through their “Tapestries” category (near the top of the page, on the left-hand side of their toolbar) and see a wide variety of international tapestry options – everything from castles and monuments... landscapes... unicorns... medieval themes... contemporary images... renaissance tapestries... Belgian, European, French, Oriental, and North American tapestries... and much more.
If you like the idea of decorating your wall space in an artistic way... (something that reflects who you are, what you believe, cherish or enjoy in life) – I think you’ll like what you find at Save On Tapestries.
PS: Here is the tapestry Matt's nana gave us...
