For my last birthday (my birthday's in October) I bought myself a special present. It was something I had been wanting for quite a while. I told my hub not to worry about buying me a gift since I had already bought myself something quite nice. Lucky for me, he still got me a few surprises.
Anywho, long story short, I never showed you what I bought myself because I hadn't really found the right place for it until now.
I've been a fan of Him & Her Abstract Art ever since Camila from Effortless Style first announced she was opening an art shop. I love the story behind the shop- she picks out the color stories and her husband turns them into art. If you've been following my blog for any length of time it's easy to see why this particular painting spoke to me. These colors are my jam; this is my color story.
I think when it comes to buying art you should buy what you love - period. I had no idea where I was going to put this painting. I just knew it needed to come live with me.
And in the end, it found a home (for now) on my mantel.
Best birthday gift I ever gave myself.
And now that I'm looking at these pictures, I feel like I could use some taller candlesticks. Hmmm......maybe for my next birthday. ;) Oh, who am I kidding, like I could wait 'til October!
Do you buy yourself presents too?
