One day a couple of years ago JR and I were going through a box of old Life magazine that his parents collected from the 1940s to the 1960s. We have been faithfully hauling around this box for really no good reason. It's not like there aren't plenty of copies of these same issues elsewhere in the world we just like them. They tell a story about a moment in time. As quasi historians this story in time thing appeals to us. Yeah, we are just weird that way.
Another way that we are weird has to do with this Campbell's soup advertisement.

Then wandering through an art museum gift shop (don't ask me which one because I tried all morning to remember. It was either the National Gallery or the Chicago art museum or I'm not really sure but I really think it was the National Gallery.) as I am want to do and I came across this...
It is a wall plaque. I thought that it just like our Campbell's soup picture so I bought it. It was cheap...something like $12 but I really thought they would go together so nicely.

This is my Spin for this week. Gretchen has taken over the reins from Jen and is I'm sure making Jen proud. Me...I'm lame. I only write a Spin every couple of weeks or even less. Click on the cute button to read what others have to say about art.
