Christmas Cheer #2: Trading Phrases - Wall Decals ( Review+G) 11/22

This post is a part of Christmas Cheer, a Holiday Gift Event, that will run on my blog from Nov 1-30.


Many a times, I have found myself lying down on the couch or sitting with a hot cup of tea with my thinking hat on and starring into a blank wall. Only when I came across Trading Phrases, I got a clue that sometimes walls can speak to me in my times of solitude. How refreshing to have scriptures or motivational quotes or something wacky instead of a blank wall ! I am totally in adoration of the beautiful pieces at Trading Phrases.

Trading Phrases offered me an opportunity to review their wall decals.  We live in an apartment, so I am not fully prepared to decorate walls that don't belong to me..but, but I WILL shop again at Trading Phrases when we have our own home. I chose to review these lovely phrases just to remind myself that my child is walking in truth ...raised in God to love Him with all his heart.


I wish I had a black wall and a black leather couch to make it look picture perfect. This is a sample of how it looks on the website. It does look great on a colored wall than on a white wall like mine.I was sent a practice sticker that I used to get to know to the sticking mechanism. It was quite easy.


We had a bit of trouble getting the "No greater joy" part to stick.This was only because the font is long and thin, but that's what makes it look beautiful. But Trading Phrases sent us a "tool" - a plastic card with fairly sharp edges so that you can work your way through making sure the letters stick correctly. They can be a bit stubborn but once you get the trick of rubbing at the correct corner before peeling off, it sticks perfectly. The other letters were a breeze to stick.

Here are some of my favorite wall decals from Trading Phrases.





Buy the reviewed wall decal from Trading Phrases for $46 ! There are several categories and sizes to choose from.I am sure you will find something that will put an accent on your wall.
