Until yesterday I'd never heard of Brian Baker's Deja Vu collection - I'm sure most of you know about it but I'd never seen one in my life...................
Being late for a movie we were going to - we had 2 hours to spare until the next show - and decided to take a look in the Salvation Army to see what they had in the way of furniture - ( hadn't been in over a year - which gave them plenty of time to stock up on at least one decent dresser or coffee table but nada )
However, on my way out I spied this for 3 dollars - and fell in love !
Oh my gosh - if this isn't the cutest thing - the details are amazing !
The curtains in the windows
The awnings - the open and shut windows !
and my favorite part - those doors
They're to hang on a wall - but I love that they're 3 dimensional
I'm hooked - so I've place a bid on this one from Ebay
and bought this one outright.........................
Here's a few others I've fallen in love with - really I want them all !
Apparently they are hand painted and no two are alike ( and I think they are the Artist's renderings of actual buildings )
Suzan says - I think I'm going to collect these
John says - It's tacky
Suzan says - I think it's quite precious actually
John says - You have a warped idea of what precious is.................
And by the way -
Running into the Salvation Army may have saved us from getting acute frost bite - it's so freaking cold here.
It was minus 24 celcius - ( - 11 for you Americans )
On Valentine's day
Have a wonderful day everyone !
