girl with a pearl earring

vermeer embroidery

dudes, i just bought this hand embroidered girl with a pearl earring for R50! (it’s on the left, in case you couldn’t differentiate the two – amazing, huh?) on the back it says “29th october 1975″. i can just imagine some old lady painstakingly churning out copies of the masters with her embroider-by-number sheets. sorry about the poor picture quality, i quickly snapped this with my phone – you should see the detail! oh my goodness, i think it’s the best thing i’ve ever bought.

i’ve been a long time follower of her blog – she has an etsy shop now, and it is cute. i am also really drawn to that t-shirt.
