A little virtual art shopping

Do you ever play "I'm not buying but if I were, I'd buy..."?

The Art.com catalog came today and I found a number of things that could be so cute in the right space.

Here are a few:


These are from their Country Chic collection. I love the birds. I feel like you might be able to re-create this with a framed piece of fabric.

I love Picasso's sketches, even if it seems weird and maybe a little wrong that they are mass produced. Some of the animal sketches are great, but I love this one. Plus, doesn't it feel good to know that even you could have made the same piece of art that Picasso did?

I love Botero's sculptures. I remember when they were displayed in downtown Chicago and were flown in via helicopter. I think this print would be adorable in a bathroom. I'm picturing it in a period bathroom full of white subway tile with black accents.

I also love vintage posters, but I don't care for the ones that are so popular you see them everywhere, like this one, which I instantly associate with bad Italian food. (OK, so there hardly is anything like bad Italian food, but just seeing this poster makes me have garlic breath.)

 I much prefer the look of old travel posters.

So what do you think? Do any of these pieces of art have a future home in your house? Or is there something else you're lusting after? And am I the only one who pretends to shop?
