HomeGoods find & some DIY Artwork

Yesterday I poped into my local HomeGoods and found this fun vase.  Im loving the shape and its a good size too.  I have rules I set for myself when Im out shopping for “accessories” or “thingys”- it has to be larger than 12″ to bring home.  I can get caught up buying tons of little do-dads and before you know it Im swimming in grannies-got-junk- or room dander as I like to call it.  By limiting myself to something large I can eliminate collecting useless clutter.  Ok enough jabbering here’s the photo of it:

And if you follow me on instagram, this past weekend I was getting my art-teest on.  I made some watercolors for my office.

And hubby and I tackled an art piece together on a large canvas.  It was fun to see how different our approach is to “art”.  Mine is all the swirly’s and his is the 3 angular lines, the ying and yang so to speak.  

Im really enjoying getting out the paint brushes and just having fun.  Even though  really think my kids could have done a better job at this than me.

    That is so cool that you and your husband made some art together. And I have to remember the 12 inch rule for accessories. Sometimes I think something will work, but then it just looks dinky in my house when I get home.
