A LITTLE COLLECTION THAT HAS BEEN WOVEN, TIED, AND KNOTTED TOGETHER JUST FOR YOU

i thought i would share my latest obsession ... anything that has been knotted, woven, or tied together to create beautiful wall hangings.  back in the day, my mom was the queen of macrame.  she made everything from hanging planters to stylish bags.  and after finding out over the weekend that she can still knot some stuff up, i may have to put in a few request.  until then ... here's a little collection of fiber art hangings i'm in love with and wouldn't mind hanging around our space.

HAPPY WEEKEND + I FOUND SOMETHING OLD (OR SHALL I SAY VINTAGE) BUT TO ME IT'S NEW

you guessed it ... i've been trolling around looking for a few old (new) things to add around our space and came across this woven tapestry which i think was quite the score! i could not believe the condition it was in and that the strings were still intact. not to mention, it was quite the deal!  i've also been doing a little shopping around our house.  just taking something from one room and adding it to another is redecorating at its finest.  not to mention, on the cheap! now about that tapestry ...

i was told this beauty dates back to the 70's and was hand woven with popular retro colors like mustard and steel gray. in case you didn't know,  gray is one of my favorite colors and i could not turn down the chance to own some vintage fringe.  yes friends, i am a sucker for the 70's, the color gray, and fringe!

i love art where its creator is able to work the canvas and create interesting textures, color, and composition. so ... consider this a plug for a really talented artist.  her name is gwen and she creates beautiful, vibrant one of a kind paintings that reflect people, places, and the everyday.  i love her cityscapes and was thrilled to get a piece of her art (the one up top) as a keepsake of our time spent in philadelphia. she also creates figurative and urban fine art paintings and has lots to choose from in her etsy shop.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN ... WE HAVE OURSELVES AN AIRPLANT DISPLAY

so remember when i said i would be working on an airplant display?  i know, i know, that was awhile ago, but i finally got around to finishing it up.  what do you think?  this was not hard to make ... just had to figure some things out along the way! and once i got going, it was pretty easy to assemble.

PULL UP A CHAIR ... OR TWO

a house that does not have one worn, comfy chair in it is soulless ~ may sarton

seeing how the past couple of weeks i've talked alot about home and my current preoccupation with finding inspiration for our space i thought i would throw in a few chairs.  after all, we need chairs, right?  and given the fact there are so many to choose from, i thought i would share a few of my favorites and maybe you will like them too.  seriously, this took me a minute to narrow them down and dang the internet for an overabundance of options.  back in the day when i had my first place (a studio) selecting furniture was easy. it was either thrifted, hand me downs, or from a discount store.  and one of my very first chairs happened to be a comfy bean bag chair.  yes, a bean bag and i was pleasantly surprised they are still around and perhaps making a comeback.  maybe i can talk the sweet boy into one these instead of a recliner!  my guess is ... not!

do you have a favorite chair in your home?
is it nicely worn, a bit retro, or completely modern?

ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND + BEAUTIFUL THINGS CREATED WITH A LITTLE NEEDLE AND THREAD

enjoy your weekend everyone.  we are still standing ... we made it ... and we are alive! my apologies for not being around this week as i had lots going on leaving little time to pop in to the blog.  but, i wanted to wish you all an amazing weekend and to share some art from cayce zavaglia.  i don't think words (or photos for that matter) will truly do her portraits justice, but i must say each are quite breathtaking and a labor of love.

cayce hand embroiders and creates these moving images using wool, silk, and cotton thread.  each takes about eight weeks to complete and the finished product it nothing short of an intimate portrayal or her close friends and family. the detail is amazing and she somehow captures the true essence of each of her subjects. if you want to see more, you can visit her website here.  and if you are in st. louis, her work will be featured at the contemporary art museum on may 9th. so if you are in the city, go check out her exhibit!
