Have I perked your interest yet?
Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE art. I have a great collection of original photographs and paintings. Some were purchased, some were gifts and some are my own work.

This gorgeous gal is the artist behind the Aisle to Aloha Studio. I don't know many people who love color as much as I do, but Lindsay has me beat! Check out her blog and you'll see what I mean.
So far, I have four of Lindsay's paintings. This cute bicycle is the start of my black and white wall.
The background of this is actually my favorite - weird, I know. I really like how you can see the colors she blended. It makes me think of riding my bike through puddles in the rain. How fun is that?!
These bicycles just cried to be together. I have tons of photos in black frames that will hang here too, as soon as I can decide which ones to put up. There are so many pictures I don't know how to choose!
I know, you must be wondering about all that color I mentioned. Well...meet the Mod Pods.
These guys hang out in what used to be my guest room that is now becoming a crafting room. I love how they stand out against the wall color and are just so cheery!
Who wouldn't have fun working on a project here? The pods Lindsay painted make me think of thread weaving in and out of fabric. LOVE! (By the way, the sewing machine is my birthday present to myself. More on that in another post.)
Speaking of presents... Guess what!
