We've been working on getting a lot of art in the house lately. I'm not an art snob by any means, I just have to feel drawn to it to buy it. What I love about a lot of the art in our house right now is that it's mine. All Hattie original art.
Well, except for this thing. We got this a few weeks ago at our favorite antique mall. We took a mental break from painting the office and I was rewarded with this pretty thing.
I love the frame, the giant circle to hang it from, I even like the dead plants in it. There's not much to it, but it was hiding behind another piece of art, laying on it's side and I was instantly drawn to it. Plus, the dealer was there and gave us $10 off, that sealed the deal.
This is one of those Hattie originals. I took this for my black and white photography class a few semesters ago. I developed it in a dark room and everything.
I'm not a professional photographer by any means, but I have so much fun taking pictures.
This is are big art project right now, a picture rail.
In a gigantic wood pile behind the garage we found the old rail for our garage. It's probably original to the building which makes it close to 100 years old. It was old, rusty and in need of some love so I sanded it down with my dremmel and we spray painted it.
Oh, and I took all those pictures myself, too.
