A gift to myself

As I said previously, My BigSis and I went to IKEA to shop. Instead of buying the dresser/workstation I had originally planned, I bought this piece of artwork. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.

It is actually intended as a place mat, not as Art, but I didn’t care. I bought an oak frame and a mat cutting kit and framed it myself. Altogether it is 21 square inches wide (the image itself is 14.5 inches wide), and now graces the living room wall under an oak clock.

I’ve made a lot of impulse buys in the past few months, but this is definitely not one I regret.

  1. Awwww, you’re a ginger. Cute. Christ, there’s not one blog among scores I visit that I don’t see Puss’ paw prints….

  2. Hey, that placemat makes great art, reminds me Pennsylvania art quilts. It’s definitely very you! I hope you are enjoying it–Love you!

  3. That’s lovely. I have some wood/bamboo placemats I use as art. If it speaks to you, why waste it under a plate?
