A year and a half ago I started an unintentional gallery wall around our family room TV.
It began with these prints of Kansas City fountains that I found at an estate sale.
And then I added a drawing of the house where Tom grew up.
For a very long time, the wall stayed just like this.
Then my mom gifted me these two little prints and they became part of the wall.
And last week I ran across this signed ship print at an estate sale, which seemed like it belonged on the wall too.
So now the accidental gallery wall has grown to this.
So now the wall looks like this. It’s taken on a black, white, silver and gold theme.
But the real star of the family room is this girl.
I have a real things for cows. I just love them. And I love oil paintings.
I’ve actually been looking for an oil of a cow for a while. That’s weird to say, right?
On Friday I stopped into an antique mall that I haven’t been in in probably a year. It’s small, so I planned to just quickly roam the aisles before heading to the grocery store. About halfway through, I looked up and found this picture waiting for me.
Would you look at that face?
I brought her home and gave her a prominent place in our family room.
At night, when the lights in the cabinet are on, her white face just glows.
It’s like it was meant to be. I’m thinking of naming her. So far she’s just Elsie, but if you have any other ideas, let me know.
