|The art in the middle of the console,was created for me by my artist friend,Joseph Cuccurullo|
Our home has an eclectic mix vintage art as well as modern pieces and works of friends and our own.
Being the treasure seekers that we are, we keep a regular source of vintage art to change up our look every-now and again.
Today's post is all about
Living with Art
For those of you not familiar with
Seth has been showing a series of artist's homes and how they live with their art,whether it is their own or others. Today is my turn up on his blog. Make sure to go over to Seth's and check out the previous weeks-definitely some real cool artists spaces shared of their homes as well as vignettes of artwork.
Thank you Seth,for putting together another outstanding series!
Let's take a tour of our home and see the art we live with each day!

Mini pieces of pottery as well as coral and some gems from Arkansas my husband gathered as a child.
I love these vintage fruit pieces,as you can see below, the other two are in the first photo.
Found this piece of art at a garage sale and had to have it!!
Probably parlor art from the 60's or 70's.
