Because I am on a domestic roll today (already made brownies, vacuumed the sofa, shook out the throw blankets, swept the kitchen and made shopping list) I had to feature one of my new favorite artists.
Vivienne Strauss creates amazing, original paper collages that are fascinating, beautiful and humorous. I am a huge fan of affordable art and make it reasonable for average art lovers to own a piece of beautiful original work.
I selected a couple that suited my current, busy, domestic mood. Wouldn’t one of these be so cute framed in a beautiful laundry room or mud room? Pictured are Cleaning House and Dirt Chaser. Be sure to check out her shop for more original collages and limited edition print.
I have ooh-ed and ahh-ed over Jadite forever now. Every time I see it in an antique mall I pick it up and admire it and pine over it only to put it down. Next time I see a piece that is moderately affordable I think I will call it fate and take it home. It will be the first piece of my collection.
For more information on the history of Jadite, check out the pioneer woman’s beautiful home collection. The collection in this picture was from Jadite Kate‘s blog, who also has a beautiful shop with a collection of Jadite pieces for sale.

PS: Yes, I took the day off yesterday. Jared had the day off so I spent it with him and the dog visiting my grandparents for a belated Birthday. Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend!
