Sadly, I didn’t go to a DC thrift shop, but my parent’s did find a little bit of DC in a rural Indiana thrift shop so… close enough. If I haven’t mentioned it before I lived in DC for three years after I graduated from college. I loved living there but decided to move back to Indiana for a lot of reason (cost of living being a major factor). But I still think of the city fondly and I try and go back and visit my second family and friends at least once a year. There is a this print of the DC neighborhoods that I’ve wanted for a long time (see it here), but I just never got around to buying it.
I don’t love blank walls as proved by every other wall in my house. But thankfully my wall got blank right after Christmas when I received a wonderful vintage print of The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. from my parents. They found it at a thrift shop and thought of me. I love it!
Isn’t it cool? I love how sixties it is. I also like how it is a sketch and a water color sort of at the same time. Very cool. I considered painting the frame with is a combination of wood and gold-painted wood, but I decided it’s nice the way it is.
It’s nice to have DC represented in my home finally.
