This pillow is a miracle:
It encompasses everything I love about stuff:
- it is a very simplistic design, which is kinda what I'm into.
- it's a pillow, so it's comfy.
- it is clearly hand-stitched, making it super awesome because someone took the time to make it.
- it involves mushrooms and butterflies, and everyone knows fungi are amazing and butterflies are... insects. And they eat dog poop sometimes.
This pillow matches all my other grandmotherly-like pictures of mushrooms in my house. It also seems to go well with all my Craigslist furniture. It does not, however, mesh that well with my red XBox and 55 inch flatscreen. But we learn to live in harmony, somehow.
I also found this painting:
This painting isn't so much "old lady" as it is "pre-teen girl," but I like it. Again, it exemplifies simplicity. It looks like something you'd find in an '80s art gallery. Plus, you can't argue with those colors. If I painted it I probably would have used some manlier colors, but after thinking about it for a minute I can't really define "manly colors." So this painting works just fine :)
As soon as I saw this one I grabbed it and never let go:
This is the best art ever. It is a mountain scene with a red cabin set near a lake in a forest. BUT IT'S STITCHED! There's even a reflection of the trees in the water! I paid $2 for this but I would have gladly paid double that. I don't know the real term for this art, and am too lazy to look it up since it's Friday night, but I love it. If anyone knows what this is called... you should say so in the comments.
It kind of looks like it's from and old school video game. I like to imagine I live there in the cabin with my dog and have to fight off 8-bit forest monsters. I'm a level 14 warrior.
Anyway, short post today because I want to go do stuff. I feel a little exposed now that you know my dark old-lady-ish secret. But I'm a proud 25 year old male grandmother. And looking back through, that middle painting does not fit the theme of this post... I still love it though!
