I have grown to realize I have this obsession with artwork, or things that can be turned into artwork. I love framing cards and magazine ads, browsing for emerging artists on ETSY is a favorite pastime, and one of my favorite gifts is this gorgeous columned ombre piece my sister made for me. The issue with this little art obsession, is it can get a bit pricey (which is laughable to any one who is a real art collector), but at $30-50 a print, then $20-50 a frame, matting… you get the deal, these things add up!
So when Aaron Brothers was having their half off canvas sale, I had to jump on it! I bought this giant canvas, and finally wanted to give a little love to the giant blank space above my kitchen table… I have had this idea pinned for FOREVER, and felt it was finally time to pull the trigger!
Here was you need to make a (what I think is) beautiful piece of artwork… for under $50!
Remember to space out your stripes so that you get to your desired lightened color at the end… You can always overlap a little more or less, depending on your spacing situation towards the end 🙂
This summer I mourned the idea of a rainy, dark winter season, and I guess the joke was on me with the 2 rainy days we have had all winter… A couple of weeks ago, we were blessed with one of the rainy days and I took the opportunity to light some candles, play some great music and spend the day cooking. There is something so great about a quiche, easy to make and great for breakfast, lunch or dinner in the days to come.

*Trader Joe’s also makes a great pre-made balsamic reduction, but you can easily make your own by simmering balsamic vinegar on low for 5-10 minutes, until reduced.
After all my Valentine’s indulgence (which carried over for a couple more weeks… opps), I am trying to get back into health-mode. I have had a bunch of “detox” meals pinned and wanted to get on trying some of them… first on the docket – a Green Goddess Bowl!
