I had a hard time picking just one thing. I love to frequent yard sales and thrift stores, so I'm always finding little treasures. So I decided to blog about some of the art around our log home.
We've had this picture for at least 10 years. We got it from a rural auction for $17.
It hangs in our bedroom.
This picture of the drowning cat was found at a flea market.
It hangs in the master bathroom.
Since our cat Disco looks just like the black cat in the picture, I've always liked it.
Lucky for Disco he doesn't get baths.
This little plate was in a thrift store for .99 cents.
We have a lot of Southwestern items around the house, so it fits in.
It hangs on my kitchen cabinets.
This is a painted wooden platter. You can see it was hand made, as it is a little crooked.
Paul and I got this when I was pregnant with Pierce.
We were on a Caribbean cruise and got it from a street vendor in Isla Roatan, Honduras.
It hangs above the kitchen window.
And finally, this piece hangs by the dining room table.
It's the most recent addition - a $5 purchase from the local Friends of the Library book sale.
It's a rural scene of a horse pulling a cart filled with veggies while the family plays in the stream. I love it!
