painting

IMG_3422

for some reason, i am always touched when i go to the goodwill outlet (aka "the bins") and come across people's art that found it's way one step away from a trash can. i am in love with this oil painting by an unknown artist that i got this week. i don't even know why. i just think this stranger is painted so lovely and emotionally. it cost me about dollar.

harry potter sock monkey.

this little harry potter sock monkey was created from a pair of 50cent thrift store socks and some thrifted yarn from the knittn kitten. even the thread i used to stitch him us was found at a yard sale in a bundle for about $1. he was created as a harry potter themed swap package for craftster.org.
