Well it’s not anything I’m making, I remain quite short on inspiration, but I do buy the occasional bit of art to put on my walls. And as it is that time of year with craft shows there has been the opportunity to add a few things to my walls (although I admit that none of these has been framed or put up yet).
This came from the same Japanese festival as the obi in the living room. It is a 3 dimensional fabric piece made using old kimono fabric. I don’t really have a need for it, but I loved how darn cute it was. And you know how I love textiles.
I saw this photo at a craft fair at the college this past weekend. I was in a crabby mood and did not want to buy anything, I just walked around for a while, feeling crabby. But I kept thinking about this fox, so I had to go back the next day and buy it. I have bought art from the photographer before. She is an older woman (that means she is older than me 😉 which makes her ancient) and she takes amazing wildlife pictures.
Here’s another look at little boy, her backyard fox. He has quite soulful eyes, he was much more interesting than the other fox she photographed. (I used to have a little fox that lived up the hill, but he disappeared one day 🙁 so now we are over-run with rabbits).
I liked this photo of two Sandhill cranes.They are perfectly lined up so it looks like a three winged bird at first glance.
This tiny piece of art is a refrigerator magnet. A friend gave them out at a party and I like the sentiment. And unlike the other bits of art, this one is hanging ;-).
