Sweet Friday/ Nursery Decor

purple and gold nursery decorHappy Friday everyone! A few days ago I updated my Etsy shop with some fun paintings that are perfect as a nursery or office decor. I love how these sets of 2 butterflies and a heart turned out. Adding some gold splatters was my favorite part. purple wall art, nursery decorunique nursery decorpink butterfly paintingpink and gold nursery art
