A Little Goes A Long Way

Super quick post here as I'm off to to pick up the kiddos! If I could I would fill all my walls with art, but realistically it's not possible. :o( There are times I want a whole wall of art and other times I like to keep it simple. Like in my kitchen. I have two small walls on either side of my sliding glass door to the backyard and they were missing a little something. Just a small touch of art.

In about 10 minutes I had two frames up! These were pictures that have been in my family for at least 30 years. I love them. They have a metallic tint to them, they are true vintage, and they are classic shots from two of my favorite places: a bay in Italy and souk area in Egypt.

They are very old and the matts need to be changed, but they still look good and make the kitchen a little cuter. The shimmer of photos aren't too clear, but in person they add just enough sparkle to the space. I love these types of metallic photos. How about you? Do you have any vintage or recent metallic photos? Thanks for stopping by.
