Today I was off from work because the power was still out from Hurricane Irene. So instead of just spending the day resting, I decided to finish up some painting projects. The first project on my list was to paint a desk for a girl’s bedroom. Here is the before: Like this: Like Loading…

Where Did You Get That Art? I Must Have It (Art with a Vintage Flair)

Posted on by Milla Posted in art, Inspiration, Vintage | Leave a comment

Recently we’ve received several compliments on the artwork hanging above our beautiful chair. We purchased it at our local Goodwill, however it’s available for a reasonable price of $30.00 here (sorry, not framed). And because we like vintage art so much we decided to do a roundup of posters available for purchase online.

Most days, my shopping trips involve stopping at every goodwill or thrift store within a …

Free Printable Art Roundup

So…how about that earthquake earlier today! It seemed like it hit multiple states. Here in Baltimore, MD the news said it was about a 5.9 magnitude. That was my first earthquake ever and I must admit it freaked me out somewhat. At first I didn’t really know what was going on just thought a plane was outside, but then the shaking did not get any better. Once reality set in, my first instinct was to find Breeze and save my …
