I love to decorate with original art but cant always afford my expensive taste. So I am always seeking out unique sources for art to decorate our home.
I finished up a few projects this weekend that I have been wanting to do for ages. And it helped that Hobby Lobby had frames on sale for 1/2 off this weekend.
The first is a piece of vintage embroidery that I shared in an earlier post. I really like the look of the framed textile, I think I will be digging through my linen closet to see what else I have stashed away…
This is our dining room that has many pieces of the vintage arts and crafts textiles I have collected. I found a pillow cover this weekend that I think will look perfect on a bench that is on the other side of the room.
The other art is from a 2007 Calendar that I picked up on sale from Barnes and Noble last year. I spent a semester of college studying in Florence Italy and just loved the graphic vintage travel posters in the calendar. My husband and I picked out 6 to frame up and hang around the house. Here are the three that I hung in our bedroom.
And here is one more bit of inexpensive art that I framed up. I picked up these lovely art nouveau note cards when I was in Washington DC at the Museum of Modern Art. I would have loved to buy some of the tiles they had on display but at around $150 each, the $15 I spent on the note cards was much more reasonable. The frame is a basic one from Target where the art is between two pieces of glass, no matte board cutting necessary.
