Art Around The Home
Time for another Blogstalking post. So, this time, it's art around the home or some such thing. The freakier the better. Well, what's more freaky than having this across the wall from you when you're on the toilet? Hee hee "Eye See You Pee" And of course, on the other wall, behind the toilet: "Kiss My Ass" hee hee hee. Sick minds. In the middle of those two pieces, I have a mirror that I framed with broken ceramic pottery. I did this at one of those Paint-Your-Own Pottery places a few years back. I pissed off some old lady that because I horded all the lime green. Sorry lady, I had a vision, and it required the lime green to carry it out. See the turtles in the corners? In the living room, I have a
cheap beautiful silver spray painted plastic brushed metal mirror and of course more plants. They're everywhere here. It's really the main artwork around. I'd take more pictures but hey, how many plants do you want to see? All right, all right. We'll see more plants.
This neato thing sits in the corner of the living room - just to the right of the fireplace. It's an aromatherapy mister thing. You put essential oils in it and it makes the room smell swell. I just think it looks cool. And of course, more plants.
If we shift to the right, we have my wall 'o entertainment.
It's all an illuuuuuuusion.
You think there windows there don'tcha? Don'tcha? Nope. Nothing of the sort. I put the curtains there thinking it would look more like a home theater. But people seem to think it's to give it the illusion of more windows. Nah, I'm not that sneaky. Behind the one on the left are my cds and extra dvd's and *gasp* video tapes. Not that I watch those, but more for nostalgia's sake. And of course, a plant. (Notice the turtles on the shelves.)
If we turn around, we see my all time favorite piece of turtle art. I got this for my birthday last year. My mom and my sister and I were shopping at Marshalls and I always go check out what they have in the back with all the cool decoratey stuff. That's where I got the eyeball and the lips. I keep hoping to find an ear or a nose. No such luck so far. But I had to have this turtle. Who wouldn't?
To the left of the turtle is a book case. Above it is this neat pastel drawing of the inky-dinky college I went to. Ahh, nostalgia. Below it are some more - you guessed it - plants.
In the bedroom, I have only one piece of artwork.
Yup. A plant.
But a giant one!
This is a Giant Peace Lily. Spathyphylum to those who wanna get all technical about it. But it's still giant. That bloom is the size of my hand.
Before I took these pictures, I hit the local yarn shops for more SP goodies and sales. One local yarn shop is moving locations so, well, when the whole store is 20% off and some other stuff 50% what's a girl to do? But when I got home, look what I found?
I knew it! He's been using it all this time but would never let me actually see it! I feel vindicated now.
