B@Home With: Art


Happy July peeps.
When there's a 5th Sunday in a month, it means an extra show at the Long Beach Antique & Collectibles Market -which is exactly what happened last weekend.
Dragging along our amiable, up-for-anything out of town guest (be careful when you visit!), we headed off to see what we could see --and were not disappointed.
Since it was a "special" market there was a mix of regular vendors and newcomers.

The Rue Sonoma booth was one of those discoveries!
Hailing from wine country, the mother-daughter team made the trek south to showcase their gorgeous, graphic, vintage images that had been hand applied to salvaged boards for hanging.
 Ranging in sizes from 24x36 to 30x36 and 36x42 the prints offered a reasonably priced barnyard full of possibilities. Chickens, cows and sheep shared wall space with artfully rendered artichokes and reprinted vintage maps.

The creative crew told me they are regulars at Northern Cal fleas such as Alameda Point Antiques Faire and Treasure Island --but if you can't wait for a roadtrip, check out their website RueSonoma.
