So here are the rules:
Each Thursday, if all goes well, I'll post a theme for the day. Join in by writing a related post, and be as creative as you like.
Make sure to link back to me in your post, and make sure to leave some love on at least one other persons' post. The link should be open till midnight Friday.
Todays' theme is Art Attack.
We all have items around our home that are decorative AND have a story behind them. Maybe the vase Great-Aunt Marjorie left you, or a picture you bought on holiday, or that lumpy clay thing one of your kids made you for Mothers' Day.
I want you to have a look around your home and find THREE things that you could conceivably call ART, and write about them.
And here are mine:
I found these in a op-shop, and instantly fell in love. I Googled the names and eventually found the studio where they were made, and contacted the artist. She e-mailed me back and said she would get back to me with the details of who the knight and his lady were, but I never heard from her again.
I have them hanging above the bedside tables in our bedroom. I like to imagine that they were deeply in love and lived happy lives. Probably not, but I can dream.
So what do you reckon this is? I think it looks a bit like it wants to be an owl.
I found it one time when we were out bush-bashing.
Western Australia has a massive history of mining towns that dried up and disappeared, and rummaging around the sites can unearth some pretty interesting stuff. Alas, we have never found anything valuable, but I just love this melted lantern frame!
Probably not (strictly speaking) ART, but this gorgeous old sapphire pendant came from my great-grandparents to my grandmother to me. One day, I'll get a chain made for it, hopefully before it's time to pass it along to my daughter.
We'll call this one a test run, I think. Tomorrow I'll post the theme for next week, so you have a chance to prepare for it, if you'd like to join in. Thanks for the suggestion, Maxabella.
