I loved this story I saw on Apartment Therapy yesterday. There is a new documentary premiering at film festivals across the country (in Marfa, Texas yesterday!) about a couple in New York (Herb and Dorothy) who were so passionate about art and art collecting that they decided 40 years ago to live solely on Dorothy's income as a research librarian for the New York Public Library and use Herb's income (as a U.S. Postal Service employee) to fund their art collection. Dorothy is now 80 and Herb is 92 and they are just the cutest people ever. Evidently this collection contains over 4,000 works of art, and it was all stored in their one-bedroom apartment. I can't wait to see this film. Check out the link above, because I feel like i am just regurgitating information from the post on Apartment Therapy, but it was such a great story I just had to share. Happy Friday- lots of swell things happening already! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
