I do have some art, despite having a few old empty frames hanging around....(actually they are not even hanging, just leaning). Like this ornate plaster frame below. People are always making jokes about my Mona Lisa being stolen...... I think it is artistic in itself...the plaster mold is very detailed and the age and wear make it art-worthy in my eye.
I rather like the blank space. I put different flowers there when I have them.
They are unifyed by black framed or inky art with hits of pinks and reds. The one on the bottom right is by my great uncle Claughton Pellew. He is deceased but well known in Cornwall. Some of his pieces and love letters written while in prison (he was a Conscientious Objector and thus jailed) are in the Tate museum in England.
This was a project for my Design Class. I had to design a rug. I just couldn't get the colors right with paint, so I used a collection of wools from Italy.
Pretty cross and Mexican mirror.
A glass beaded purse made in Paris
From the Toronto Textile museum. A hand embroidered and beaded tassled bag. One of my favorites.
It took me while to get this wall right. I had to balance the scale and colors of the pieces, as well as the spacing. (if you look closely you can see little holes I made while trying to get it right.) I add new Bits to it now and then. It is still evolving.
