Random piece of art


Have you ever spotted something, fell in love & went out on a quest to find it? I fell for this (kind of) painting when I spotted it in the book 'Als Nieuw' by Emily Chalmers & Ali Hananfell. No information about the painter whatsoever, so I was looking for a needle in a haystack.
Until Kay did a post where she showed a similair painting & mentioned the artist, yay!
Now I can finally put it on my vintage/thriftstore-list.


The postcards-from-France, 17 of you wanted to receive a card, so the 17 of you just drop me an email with your address & I will send you one! (saskia.vanderzee ~at~ yahoo ~dot~ com)

Yes, that has definitely happened to me with art! I found this gorgeous photograph of a horse from the side that was divided into three perfectly huge framed pieces. It was fabulous. I finally found it, but it is still something I will have to wait on.

Hope you're doing Lovely,
That Girl in Pearls

I recently bought a 50's print from an auction, nonody could tell me anything about it, (gorgeous, topless tahitian lady) i am still searching for her story. She is happily hanging in my fibro beachvshack I have almost completed renovating. I love collecting mid century and vintage so much character is to be found in these pieces.
Ps I am now following you
Pss i do hope you pop on over and say hello, I am running a giveaway until the 3rd July.

Heel mooi, dit schilderij. Ik herkende het meteen, was me ook al opgevallen in dat boek. ;)
