Vintage Flowers

A little something vintage inspired and with beautiful pink flowers? 
Well you know I love it.

A package arrived in the mail yesterday
and inside was a piece of beautiful artwork in soft faded yellow and beautiful layers of pink petals.


 I wanted art that had a vintage look-with cottage colors and sweet charm.
I had such a hard time choosing just which piece to order this time from Gallery Direct-
 there were so many I loved.


Though, I was thinking something simple understated for the spot I am putting it
and so after going back and forth over several-this one was the winner.


When I pulled it out the box- I was instantly in love- it was so much more beautiful in person.
I just  propped it up on the cast iron mantel without much else at all and it was perfect.


This artwork is printed on a piece of smooth plywood with a wood backing.
I usually order the prints on canvas but thought this time I would try the wood 
to see if it made it feel more vintage. 
I wasn't sure what to expect... but...

 I LOVE IT.
The print looks amazing on wood.
 The little bit of wood graining showing through adds a unique texture and it has a very
 vintage feel in person.  I will definitely be ordering my artwork this way again.



I was provided with artwork of my choice as a Gallery Direct Ambassador but the opinions are my own.
