The expected: these Italian coffee bean sacks make an eye catching display.

The unexpected:

Some of my fondest moments are being out in the world wandering around, expecting the unexpected, and voila, there it is! The most ordinary use of something so common juxtaposed with fine linens, wools and silks becomes extraordinary. Such are these stunning window displays recently seen while on holiday in Venezia.

    I've been a little fascinated with coffee sacks lately.. hopefully will have some to post soon.. Take care and have a lovely weekend. .. xxx Julie

  2. I love these sacks! Thank you so much for your sweet comments about my art. I think what you said about the elegance of the past is why I am drawn to painting the vintage women. Jennifer:)
