A friend forwarded me this home renovation article from Country Living. The water-scapes arranged throughout the house remind me of paintings my Mom and I would discover in the numerous estate sales we'd attend on Saturday mornings during the summer. As I got older and continued to explore the treasure troves of thrift stores, etc. my Mom would beg me to stop bringing home perceived junk. Hey - monkey see, monkey do. This summer, I'll circle my newspaper ads and be first in line; I'm on the hunt for more of these untitled but beautiful paintings as well as these little wooden birds.
