When I was in Charleston last weekend I feel in love with a beautiful inlaid box at an antique store. It was a bit pricey so I begrudgingly left it behind and continued to think about it all last week. Well, the antique gods must have been shining on me because I found two inlaid boxes almost identical to the one I had admired in Charleston at one of my favorite DC haunts, Christ Child Opportunity Shop (see some of my past finds here), while shopping for some upcoming client shoots. Don’t you love when that happens?
On Sunday we stopped by my favorite museum, The Phillips Collection, to check out their new exhibit: Van Gogh Repetitions. It was so inspiring to see two of my favorite works Portrait of Joseph Roulin, and The Bedroom at Arles, up close and personal, and it basically killed me to not be able to take pictures–hence, the damage above from the museum shop. Still not the same… If you’re in DC, it’s worth a visit. I might just put my membership to good use and visit again this week when it’s less crowded!
