Hello Remodelaholics! Brynne from The Gathered Home here with a brand new series that I am super excited about!
Art is such an important element in decorating a room, but I know it is one that I often push to the back burner because finding the perfect piece of art can be difficult, not to mention expensive.
Well, you and I don't need to have blank walls anymore because each month I'm going to be scouring the Internet for THE BEST free images out there (in a fun theme-of-the-month) and rounding them up for you right here on Remodelaholic!
For October, I couldn't resist putting together a Halloween-themed roundup with some of the amazing vintage medical images I stumbled across.
