Fab Finds, Giveaways, Wall Decor

Giveaway: Daisy Barn Arts

Daisy Barn Arts is the real deal. Wall decor that is totally original, 100 % handmade with a whimsical charm. Perfectly sweet and unique for the nursery. The story goes that when searching for baby gifts for friends Daisy Barn Arts creator Kristen White was frustrated by all the over-commercialized,  mass produced art for kids. Having always had a passion for vintage items, Kristen looked to the handmade artwork of past decades for ideas. Originally inspired by crewel work designs popular in the 1970’s, which utilized the age-old art of wool embroidery on linen, she added printed fabrics and vintage buttons to give each piece an eclectic, bohemian feel. Kristen says, “no two pieces are identical. We also take pride in the fact that our items are eco-friendly and are created from reused, recycled, and organic materials. This includes vintage buttons, organic fabrics, found fabrics, and our signature authentic reclaimed barn wood frames.

    Hello, I’m a subscriber to your blog.

    The Sailboat is my absolute favourite – I’ve never seen anything like Kristen’s work – so whimsical and inspiring! Well done for bringing something so unqiue to the market full of gaudy and commercialised decor for children’s bedrooms. Your work is so versitile that it can be hung on a wall in any room in the house.

    Best of luck with the business!

    I would love the blue elephant for my son’s room, the vintage frame adds so much to the picture! I wish I was crafty and could embroider, meanwhile I have my eyes on a beautifully embroidered artwork my friend made for her children when they were little. She told me if her daughter doesn’t want it she would let me have it and I would frame it in a vintage wood frame for my daughter’s room. Otherwise I really like the bluebird.

    I absolutely adore the elephants and the wonderful blue bird.
    My art collection ranges from very modern to beautiful antique. One of my favorite pieces is a vintage wool embroidered piece with a simple birch tree field scene.

    Wow, the Daisy Barn Art collection are all really splendid pieces, precious and unique! I’m especially fond of the blue elephant and the bird, so adorable. I tried to incorporate a bit of a vintage inspired deco to my son’s nursery. I have a really great mosaic little vintage end table in his nursery, that was mine in my single apartment days and was so special to me. It holds his books and a couple picture frames. He also has two vintage framed prints of a boy and girl above his bed, that we love. I’d love to add one of these lovely pieces to our nursery!

    Those elephants are so sweet, I love elephants & they are supposed to be really popular right now :) I don’t really have any vintage wall hangings that I can think of. I think we still have a crocheted owl that my parents had hanging up when I was first born, but not sure we actually still have it, lol.

    The owl, bird & elephant are all equal favorites for me!

    My favorite are the elephants, though I can’t choose just one color. My grandmother loved elephants and since her death, I’ve become obsessed myself. It may not be artsy, but my favorite piece is a brass elephant sculpture she loved, that my uncle gave to me this year, several years after her death.
