Art. Through the paintings on your walls and sculptures on your shelves you are able to make a bold statement, treasure places where you once traveled, enjoy a valuable investment, or simply decorate your home.


The Working Proof

“The Working Proof seeks to promote art and social responsibility. Each print is paired with a charity of the artist’s choice, to which we are donating 15% of the sale of each print…” This wonderful print, Dreaming About Shoes, is by Sol Linero and sales will benefit Doctors Without Borders. I own it! The Working Proof has been selected as a Sweet Peas & Stilettos featured *Shop for a Good Cause* business.

This photograph, Dismantled Server Room I, hangs in my home and we get so many compliments on it (especially from all of our techy friends…).


Creativity Explored

We have about 9 or 10 pieces of art work from Creativity Explored throughout our home and more pieces in storage. Creativity Explored is a nonprofit visual arts center for artists with developmental disabilities. 50% of the proceeds from all art sales go directly to the artist. This is an amazing organization I would encourage everyone to support. This piece is by Mary Belknap.

Many of you love art and would love to collect art and make it more a part of your everyday life, but you just don’t have time to wander through galleries or research up and coming artists. I have found some wonderful websites that make it easy for you to become a collector with a few clicks of your mouse. You will want to check back often as they continually add new pieces and collections. You will brighten your home, bring a smile to your face, and inspire creativity in your children.  Here are a few of my favorite finds:
