Artwork for the den…


Finally I can show you! I  purchased this artwork at store on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop/littlebluebirdstudios) a few months ago when I first started on my “den makeover”.  I just thought these prints were so unique and perfect for my new room. I’ve tried really hard to step away from the mass produced items at large stores we all know.  I can say that I am loving the hunt for unique pieces like these for my home!  She had many options to chose from, however I stuck with the bird theme I have going on.

When the prints arrived, I raced out in search of the perfect frames…no such luck!  I did find one on eBay that I thought I would love, but when it arrived – it wasn’t quite what I had ordered…so back in the mail to the seller it went.

look at the difference of what was ordered (left) & what arrived (right)

Back out I went in search of something, Etsy, antique stores, boutiques, large department stores, and again, no such luck for the perfect frames. 

However, last week I was at Pottery Barn & of course found what I thought would be the perfect frames.  Brought them home & tried my bird prints out in the frame & honestly, I have to say……I LOVE THEM!  

Today, they were hung on the wall for display & I can’t be more happy with how they turned out!  Yep, another perfect goodie to put in my den!

Just love the artwork on the dictionary pages. I have some kinda infatuation with everything made with vintage dictionary pages. Love the table cloth too.

Seriously love the prints in frames. I'm new to your blog from A Beach Cottage, so I don't know the history of your ruffled tablecloth. Did you make it or buy it? LOVE the whole corner.

Lovely bird prints. Do you ever look at thrift stores? You can remove whatever is framed in the frame. I love old frames and your PB are meant to look old. ♥O
