A Great Pair Of Vintage Retro Rehabilitated Owls

Made in 1970, each owl measures 9" high by 6" wide. They have been painted a modern white, which makes them a perfect retro wall accessory for today's modern decor. $15.00 for the pair right here. Enjoy!

20 x 200

I came across 20 x 200 via Design Milk. I love the concept. They offer artwork by such artists as Jennifer Sanchez (above) and Amy Ross (below). The concept is as follows: two new pieces a week, one a photo and one a work on paper. Each image is available in three sizes. The smallest size is reprinted in the largest batch (200) and sold for $20. Hence the name 20×200. They also offer medium-sized editions of 20 for $200, and large-sized editions of 2 for $2000 (for collectors). Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity numbered by the artist. I think this is such a great idea. Enjoy and keep an eye on 20 x 200.

Paint by numbers DIY...

I know that's a bit of a moronic phrase being that the concept behind paint by numbers is DIY, but you really can DIY your own paint by numbers. Color By Number 2.5 lets you to convert a photo to a paint-by-number pattern. Just scan the photo or load graphics file from disk, choose the brand of paints/crayons to be used and the program will convert your photo to a paint-by-number pattern optimized for the palette you have chosen. They offer a free trial and if you like, you can purchase the software for $19.95. Think of the possibilities.

And for those of you who like your DIY already done, ebay seller theoneandonlycountblah has this fantastic retro vintage horse in a frame for a current bid of $15.50 with a little over 4 hours to go. Enjoy!

Source it...

Yesterday Grace shared a fabulous sneak peak Meagan Goldberg's pink and black office. One of the things I loved, as did several others, was the blacksmith wall art above her desk. What a wowing statement against that pink wow. Meagan shared that her piece was from Ethan Allen. Their version is 49" wide by 37" high and retails for $299.00. However, I did some research and found some smaller, cheaper alternatives.

Ebay seller signshopnmore has the K & P Carr version measuring 26" x 24" for $80.00, while countrybuzzins has the 19 x 25 inch J. Murphy for $75.00. I would also suggest taking a look at the other signs these sellers have to offer. Some really great items. Enjoy!

It's a date...

If you live in the Oakland, California area be sure and drop by Mignonne this Saturday, September 22nd between 5 - 8 pm for a celebration of art, décor, home and garden at the closing reception for local artist Sheila Metcalf Tobin.
