Obsession...

I'm completely ga-ga over this straw dress artwork by Todd Murphy.



First I saw it here at (dreamy) Bobo intriguing objects...

and I fell head over heels in love with it.

I saw it again at Restoration Hardware and left without it - as difficult as that was.

After a few days it faded to where I only thought of it a few times a day (LOL), and then it danced back into my heart when I saw it again, here with Brooke's beautiful post over at Velvet and Linen...



Now I see it constantly in my mind's eye, even in my dreams! The painted burlap, tulle and straw... It's so wonderfully ethereal and otherworldly.
I can't get it
off
of
my
mind.

Have you ever obsessed over a piece of art, or an object of beauty - a heart's desire that way?



Perhaps the next time I'll see it ...will be in my own living room!

Hope you are having a good week - we're busy behind the scenes, but will pull you into Museville soon. So much to do, so little time.

Yes, and it's the things I didn't get when I could have, that I've obsessed over.

My client and I loved this piece of art. It wasn't until we received it that we realized it was made of real straw. It's actually even more beautiful in person! Thank you for the mention, Isa!

I love this piece too. DD1 has a similar piece of art, but I'm not sure of the artist name.
