thrifted threads: purple and mystery artist

welcome to another 'what i wore' wednesday.
i'm linking up with lindsey and the ladies for some fashion fun.
i don't know why, but i'm back to wearing and surrounding myself 
with a lot of purple again lately.
purple...purple...purple everywhere !!
purple t-shirts, purple sweaters, purple bed sheets, even purple original art.
the purple outfit was thrifted (like 99.999% of my clothing)
i live in easy, comfortable, pieces that i can wear in layers
 because of our west coast climate.
here in victoria b.c., there is always such a large change in temperature from the start of the any day compared to late layering is key !!!
this beautiful acrilic painting on canvas and all its purple tones was also thrifted.
i spotted it in one of my favourite thrift shops before holidays 
and fell instantly in love with it.
ian and the kids surprised me with it for christmas.
there is no signature on the piece and the ladies working the shop 
couldn't tell me more about it's previous owner...
so the artist remains a mystery.
so if you have any clue of who the artist is 
or have any similar pieces...let me know.

wishing you a beautiful wednesday!!!



  1. I am NOT surprised you are wearing purple at all. It looks fabulous on you. What an interesting painting and I hope you figure out who painted it!!

  2. I agree with Karen you look amazing in Purple.


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
