I heart viv strauss

While trolling Etsy a few days ago, I stumbled across artist Viv Strauss’ storefront. I simply could not be more smitten by her work! In addition to just being plain fantastic, her pieces have the most whimsical titles, I.E. “Florence Vanderploeg and Otto take a drive and enjoy the early fall foliage, September of 1938.” I think I need to purchase the first watercolor above... I can’t stop thinking about it. The banana leaf wallpaper featured in the piece is clearly inspired by the wallpaper at Indochine, an iconic New York eatery (I strongly suggest that you read Heather Clawson’s post about Indochine’s wallpaper here). When you have a moment today, why don’t you browse through Ms. Strauss’ shop? I promise you’ll find it time well spent.
