Un Art

Art doesn't always have to be an oil stretched onto canvas or a print matted, framed and hung on a wall.  For me, ordinary objects can be art as well.

A large garden gate is art layered behind a framed map in my living room.

In my sun room, a pull-down classroom sea life map is my over-sized art.

An architectural fragment, urns, and globes are "art" in our bedroom.

Faux taxidermy is art too.  My Anthropologie elephant trophy is a fave.

I've had a pair of these wonderfully weathered farm machinery gears for a while.
They need to find a home in my home soon.

I'd love to know what you have as "un art" in your home.
