I Feel a new Collection Coming On...

I realized this morning that we have the beginnings of a new collection.  As if we need something else to collect!  Afraid it's my fault.  I seem to have developed an liking for 50's/60's low-brow homemade art.  Specifically, paint by numbers and gravel art.  It began with these paint by number pieces a few weeks ago.

Paint by Numbers by Freda Davis

Yesterday, I spotted this gravel art cornucopia that I just had to have for the breakfast room!  I think my stepson, who was out shopping with us, thinks my taste may be lacking.... *lol*

Am I crazy?  I think they're rather fabulous.  Once we got the cornucopia home, the hubby agreed that it's perfect in the breakfast room. Stepson still seems to have doubts... :D



  1. LOVING the tiki paint by numbers - go retro kitsch!!

  2. Love all of them. As a kid we had a "play room" where the walls were adorned with our paint by number and gravel "art". I think I am feeling a collection of my own coming on, although hubby will be aghast.

  3. He he ! Actually, I am looking for a set of painting for my bedroom. I have a big wall to cover. I love those exotic landscapes and the colours are wonderful.

    I keep an eye on them. :)

  4. I absolutely love the paintings!

    Anything hawiian and retro definetly floats my boat! hehe

    where abouts did you find them?

  5. I also love the paint by number style and am working on some pieces in it! :) Your blog inspires me, I'll add it to my favourites. Keep up the good work! Best wishes from the Netherlands xMM
