Warhol pop art!

You either LOVE Andy Warhol's artwork or you HATE it....well, I am one of those people that LOVE it! The simple images and vibrant colors are what attracts me most to his work. He was able to take many ordinary images and make them look extraordinary....a Campbell's soup can, a Coke bottle, a gun...and photographs of people such as Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, and himself! You will even notice that I added a Warhol art application to the bottom of this blog...it will rotate different Warhol pieces each time you log on...hope you enjoy it!

I recently saw these mini appetizer plates at cb2 and had to get some! I bought 3 of the 4 colors they make. They are about 5 inches in diameter and made of melamine. The best part is....they are only $1.50 each....that means I got 3 of them for under 5 bucks! Awesome deal! I set them on clear plastic plate stands and created a small display on my dining room built-in hutch along with a white vase. Such a fun little display...and it was cheap enough that I won't be too hearbroken to take it down someday and replace it with something new.
