Thrift shopping is a great way to find something unexpected, something you never imagined you'd discover. Just the other weekend I made a stop at the Blue Elephant RVA to say hello to my friend Jessica, and I found this beautiful Italian glass bottle. The color is so vibrant, it almost glows, in a cool sort of way. I added this piece to the small collection of turquoise-blue bunch I have been displaying on my fireplace.
The Portrait of a woman is a find I took a long time to search for. I was looking for a portrait, something of a certain art style and of course something I could afford. After I saw this painting (at TheEAShop) I fell in love with its style, composition, and the blue + red that the artist used so masterfully to create such powerful piece. It was my first real-deal artwork purchase. It is oil on canvas from around 1950s - 1960s. I adore the colors and how well they work together!
