One Kings Lane is one of my regular haunts and can have some pretty good pieces. Most especially, in my opinion, artwork. They sell so many amazing pieces by artists that I have grown to know and love including; Sarah Boyts Yoder, Michelle Armas, Lisa Golightly, and Slim Aarons. Its a mecca for art I tell ya! Also among those is Dawn Wolfe. Dawn uses handmade papers or papers she finds and gives them new life by folding or cutting them to create something different and eye catching.
Funny enough, two summers ago (almost to the day!) when R and I visited Breckenridge for the Fourth of July, the art fair was going on and we happened to walk through it one day with my uncle. What caught my attention the most? These darling little dresses – think baby sized – that we’re made from maps. The dresses we’re perfect and featured fan folded skirts and darling rounded peter pan-like collars – I am drawn to art pieces that are “3-D” and these we’re just that. Imagine my surprise when 2 years later I am browsing One Kings Lane and come across these same dresses and at a time when I am actually in need of art to outfit a new apartment. Pretty exciting, really. Tiny, framed dresses made from beautiful and colorful maps and papers – you can always find room for those, right? The teacher in me realllyyy wants to make the “Penmanship” version mine, but I also love this one and this one, too. How great would these be in a nursery, too? Talk about an “investment piece.” Think I can talk my fiancé into one? Or two?
