Now I'm using the term ART very loosely here - in my world anything you hang on a wall becomes ART lol - it could be slipper with a nail hung through it for all I care - it's ART.............
So when my Son found these last year and gave them to me as part of my Christmas stocking things
they instantly became Rembrandts.
I wouldn't have bought them for myself - really not my style but you know how it is - when one of your kids gives you something it becomes more precious then gold :)
There's 2 of them - he got them from a Dollar store for 2.00 each I believe ( our Christmas stocking rules - items cannot cost more than that ! )
The other one says
I've been wondering where to put these for awhile now - I thought of making elaborate frames for them, but really? I just don't have the time..............
I thought they'd work best in the kitchen - but the way it's configured I have very little space for anything on the walls..................
And then it dawned on me - art can go anywhere, right?
So how about between the open shelving I have on either side of the stove !
The other side will have the HOME one on it - Home Love ....................and all of a sudden I love it - and it IS my style - who knew? Thanks Gordie - they're perfect !
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need :)
Except it took me far too long to hang this thing
I HATE THIS TYPE OF HANGING HARDWARE - HATE IT - especially since this is not a large piece one of those brackets in the center would have sufficed !
Because it doesn't matter how many times I measure - I never get it right the first time - EVER !!!
WHO invented that? I curse them a thousand times LOL
I think it took me in excess of a half hour to get it up
I also added a frame to a little space I had - my girlfriend gave me this years ago - I added a Parisian Metro Map I took from our last trip ( they're free everywhere - I should have grabbed hundreds lol - what a perfect drawer liner these would make )
The frame is meant to sit on a surface - so I plopped it onto a clipboard and hung it on the wall
And then I discovered a little room over the micowave - oh oh - can't have that can we?
This is where I drive John over the edge by the way................
I have a beloved wood tray that I bought once in Paris ( on a trip with a girlfriend who thought I was insane - before I started blogging and met people who would actually GET buying it )
I was thisclose to putting a screw right through it so I could hang it on the wall LOL
Instead it sits on the top part of one of the plate racks.................doesn't it look like art ?
John says - what that's thing you added to it?
Suzan says - a chandelier
John says - CAN'T YOU LEAVE ANYTHING ALONE AT ALL?
John says - I'm sick of seeing that stencil everywhere
( I'm obsessed with it truthfully )
I won't tell him that I had BON MATIN stencilled on it - but sanded it off for the chandelier lol
and then to balance it out I put a wicker break basket on the other one
John says - Where did the wicker one come from?
Suzan says - We've had it at least 10 years - don't you notice anything?
Suzan says - It's been on the table even for dinners .............
John says - Oh yeah - I forgot about it.
I bought it last month - shhhh...............
Ok - I'm off to find some more nooks and crannies to fill lol
May your weekend be filled with lots of -
and sunshine - ( which we may not be getting too much of - they're calling for rain for most of it )
but that's OK if it's going to wash away the snow
