    We have a cherished piece of custom art. My husband and I were married 6yrs ago on the beach in the Outer Banks. Our artist friend spent each morning painting a water color of the exact spot where we were married. At our reception the following week he presented it to us after it had been framed. We were very moved. It is above our mantle and we love looking at it! Each year we vacation at the same spot, it's interesting to see how much the beach has changed.

  51. IHeart Agapanthus!

    My favourite piece of art is actually a wall of photos! I created a photo wall with all photos and trinkets of different sizes and shapes but tied together by having black frames. The photos - of family, friends, fun times and even momentos (a ticket stub, a note we received from a hotel on a romantic getaway) not only bring a smile to my face every time I walk past but they remind me to slow down and enjoy one of the most used but less appreciated areas of my home!

  58. IHeart Agapanthus! My husband and I don't have much art around the house, but we have a neat little painting that his grandma gave us for our wedding present. She is actually quite an artist :-)Love your blog!

  60. IHeart Agapanthus! My favorite piece of art is a canvas print of plumerias - my favorite flower!

  61. i Heart Agapanthus! My favorite piece (I actually have 2 favorites) of art is 1. My husband's grandfather hand-painted a pic of a rabbi studying. It's beautiful and 2. My husband's photo of the Star of David in the hand. It's absolutely stunning. And they both are placed in our dining room.

  62. IHeart Agapanthus! My favourite piece of art is of 2 grey water birds and was painted by a 16 year old boy in Cambodia which I bought at a charity auction, it helped a great cause and makes me feel good everytime I look at it.
