While on the hunt for not-too-tacky shark-themed home items
yesterday, I virtually popped into San Francisco’s The Curiosity Shoppe
, a fantastic destination for “crafts, kits and curious for the creatively inclined" that I've long adored. While I didn’t come away with any décor items suitable for "Jaws"
junkies, I did spot a nifty new series of wall “sculptures”
from Shauna Alterio and Stephen Loidolt of Something’s Hiding in Here
, a blogging
duo out of Philly (they’re also behind FORAGE
, a line of killer handmade bowties as well as wooden mustaches on a stick).
For the series, called Let’s Go Everywhere, Shauna and Stephen repurposed vintage paint-by-number nature scenes and hand cut them into the iconic US of A shape and mounted them onto Masonite boards that are suitable for hanging. They definitely fall into the category of kitschy cool and don't seem too hard for the DIY-inclined to replicate granted you can get your hands on some primo vintage paint-by-number paintings like Shauna and Stephen have.
As far as I can tell there are only three pieces in the series and they’re one-of-a-kind so get ‘em while they’re available (one appears to have been already sold). They measure 7.5" x 5.5" and sell for $60 each through The Curiosity Shoppe.
