As promised . . .

my art that Kijsa did! Oh, how I'm so in love with it! I do plan to frame it, but couldn't help myself and just had to get it on the wall ASAP! This is the spot that I originally wanted it, then I was going to move it to the kitchen - BUT decided that my Grandmother's old secretary needed it desperately!! Sooo, back to this spot it went!
check out the detail!! The reds - a perfect shade of blue - ahhhhh . . .
I nice crackle {somewhat aged} finish to it. . . .
beautiful muted background . . . .

with an amazing pop of color!!!

This cute lil' thing will be sitting propped up on a piece of furniture that I have in my kitchen that will be making it's way into my living room!!

I wish you could have seen the packaging! Sorry, I couldn't help myself and I tore into it as soon as she handed it to me! But my friend, Rachel, was with me and she can totally vouch for me and say how incredible it was! It was wrapped in brown packaging with twine to tie it off. Attached was her business card {that looked like an old, rustic door that had an old lock on it} with a {real} old rusty, vintage key!!! How cute!? Got to love some fan-tab-U-lous packaging!

Okay - as I said in the last post, go get you some Kijsa art!! Here is her blog, her website and even her and her sister's blog!!!
