Recipe for Simple yet Luxe Art

Just assemble these items:

Paper Source fine paper with gold inking ($6/sheet, plus shipping for me because we don't have one in town)

Natural or white burlap from anywhere (I popped in JoAnn for mine)

And these budget frames from Michaels (seriously, they are cheaper and possibly better than the old standby Ribba's from IKEA).  I paid $12 for this giant frame in woodgrain:
And my result:

Leopard Upholstery Fabric

Found where else, eBay! I'm going to re-upholster my x-bench with this. Doesn't every room need some leopard?

(BTW, have you noticed eBay bucks yet?  I guess it's credit earned by buying/selling on eBay. Pretty sweet)

I've also been looking at serapes but haven't pulled the trigger quite yet.

Coral Skinny Jeans

Can I say that these $30 colored skinny jeans from JC Penney rock? Soft, stretchy, lightweight and fit my fuller lower half well.

JCP's having a bit of a moment. I'm liking their new look, branding and products.  There's still a lotta fug in there, for sure, but some great, affordable pieces, too.

Where I've Been

Sint Maarten
I took a wee break and hopped on a boat with my mom to the Eastern Caribbean.
Grand Turk
We layed in the sun -- and looked at the sea.
Sint Maarten
Did a little bit of shopping
St Thomas
And sightseeing...but mostly just enjoyed the lovely shades of blue of the Caribbean...


Time to get back at it.
