Art knock-offs

I saw this art piece at my friend Shannon’s house last month. I love it! Most of the girls at her house knew the artist but I’m not up to speed on that stuff so I have no clue who it is who made these (sorry!). I just knew that I liked them and can’t wait to make my own! I think this will be a perfect project for dreary January or February.

The same artist made this piece that is hanging in her little boy’s nursery. How adorable is this?! I love the gray wash to it and want to make this for our master bedroom but change the quote. Have you all seen the quote from Winnie the Pooh? I love it! Some people use it for speeches at weddings and I think it is great for our master bedroom: “If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.” How sweet is that? I think this will be a perfect February project to do for Valentine’s Day!

When I showed this picture to my co-worker and we were talking about the Winnie the Pooh quote, she got me hip to Ben’s Garden and John Derian. Do you all know about this? I am in love!! I don’t need to collect anything else but man, I would love to have some of these plates!

The cool thing about Ben’s Garden is that you can submit a photo and they will make a custom decoupage tray for you! I would love to give this as a wedding or anniversary present! Or…receive as an anniversary present (hint! hint!) 🙂

The John Derian plates are gorgeous! People hang them in their houses as collections or use them as trays for bathrooms and sink areas. They are crazy expensive but so gorgeous! There are word trays/plates and then also super cool pictures of animals or abstracts. Check the sites out when you have time. It is my new obsession!
