lindamarie- agree! the needlepoint takes on a mosaic or Lichtenstein pixel quality when enlarged like that - the blog Little Green Notebook had a post about enlarging images for "grand" art - she included links for where to have images enlarged.

Thanks, Lily~ Hadn't seen this. Abbey's home in general IS colorful whimsey....so kid stuff blends well. They have style; they acquire, arrange and edit with artists' eyes, for sure. A couple of weeks ago, I'd just placed my OLD play blocks (with their lucious colors) out for display (in an eerily similiar manner as Abbey has!)...still playing and decorating with toys without youngsters even in the house.

Thanks so much, everyone! casart and lindamarie, the bird piece was a vintage needlepoint that I scanned and then had printed at a university print shop. It's gigantic and the print only cost 20 dollars (a steal for a large print). cyndik, I love your block collection! livingpalm and sparklymom- that's so fun! Where are you both from?!
