I've been wanting to share with you the oddities (not comparable to the show which my son loves by the way) I found on our vacation in Virginia. It's just that they are certainly not everyone's cup of tea but I have been drawn to some really strange stuff lately.
First off I want to share with you the painting by numbers. It has been on my mind before I have seen paint by numbers gallery walls on Pinterest. There's just something oddly nostalgic that draws me to them. I was one of those kids sitting at my desk painting art projects by numbers and feeling like a really cool artist while doing so. And when I come across those particular art walls on Pinterest, I can't help myself but love them. Is there any great artistic value in them? NO...but there is a certain charm that I can't resist.

And those wall murals are so cool too aren't they?
Now here is what I found at Goodwill:
I don't have room for them at all, but couldn't leave them behind either. I was even contemplating redoing the kids bathroom. And I would paint the wooden frames white, sorry, y'all know how much I love white and to me that would bring out the colors even more.
To stay with the kitschy, cheesy theme I purchased a vintage ceramic deer as well for $2. You might have seen my gnome and apple and the story/meaning behind it (click HERE to read up about it).
It's totally cheesy, I think I have been hanging out with my 6 year old for too long, but can't you just imagine snow white loving this deer? I know my friends in Virginia just gave me this strange look when I ran for this deer but I couldn't help myself.
I have been craving this quirky and strange stuff around my house lately, someone stop me please.
I also found some more of these plain brass candle holders that I love:
And I know that this quirkiness is exactly the reason why I love Jonathan Adler so much. Nobody does strange, fun and odd as stylish as him. I only have to mention boob vases, don't I?
So this is it for today. Do you get it or do you think this stuff is just too strange?
Talk to you on Wednesday and Ill hopefully have another furniture makeover for you.
