Send in a photo(s) and the details of how you've used art in your home. Instead of a contest, we thought we'd go the slightly less-competetive route by asking for submissions and sending a thank you gift (An AT T-shirt or Book) to the first 30 entries posted across the four AT city sites this month. We'd love to show off your art, so don't be shy - send us some photos! Details here.



Jenny likes finding art on a budget. The photos of the pieces in her bedroom are a good reminder - if you: keep your eyes open while thrifting, frame things nicely and finally (and most importantly) consider the compostion with the other items in the space when hanging them, it is possible to make the proverbial silk purses on a regular basis.

In her email to us, Jenny said, "Most of the art in my bedroom was obtained from my local thrift store. The shot of the art above my red dresser has a drawing/ painting I found at the thrift store - I love how it came framed and matted. The piece next to it is a print from Tiny Showcase."

"The bird prints around my bed were from a Japanese print block book from the 60's that cost me $1.99. There were 20 prints in that book! I'm all about finding cheap art, combined all these pieces cost me under $30. "

Thanks to Jenny for sharing the pics of the art in her home!
