On Sunday we stumbled onto this fun little art gallery studio called The Faux Lauvre. The artist of all this body of work is Mernie Buchanan of Benicia. (www.mernie.com) She told us how she goes to art museums and copies the paintings of old masters and then she finds ornate picture frames which she also paints to frame them in.
They are colorful and fun.
This is a painting she said she did of her great grandmother.
We also visited this little antique shop I like for all it's old clothes from
eras long gone.
I liked the beads on the blue dress and wondered what I could make out of them,
but I left it there.
Loved the white lace too.
And hats. My mother wore hats, and gloves and pretty dresses and high heel shoes,
and had her nails and hair done every week.
Another era gone by.
What old memories still linger in your mind today?
