Guess how much I paid for this beauty? It's a painting that has been printed on canvas
complete with a nice solid wood frame & matte in great condition. The varnish on top
of the print that seals it is all crackly looking when you look up close. I love that.
I love how peaceful and serene this picture is...
The only thing I changed was to clean it up a bit and paint the (previously bright red)
matte this off-white color. I think it looks much better now.
I already had the paint on hand.
I snagged this cute owl print and wood frame
at a church rummage sale. I may
end up painting the frame black...but we'll see.
This original oil painting came with a frame
that was beat up...so I discarded that. I may end up
framing it again...but I'm not opposed to
frame-less oil paintings. I love the colors
and calming landscape.
These little sherbet dishes were too cute to pass up...
and I might add...too cheap! I'm such a frilly girl,
so I know I'll use them over and over again in the
years to come. Can't beat clear glass, either.
Goes with EVERYTHING. Added bonus:
they were in pristine condition with no scratches or chips. Yay!
60 cents total for a lot of 6!
Another large beautiful print with a nice wood frame & matte.
I'm debating whether to paint the matte or not to make it stand
out more.....what would you do???
Da da da dummm....$2!
Favorite find of all: a vintage rocking chair! I had been
on the look-out for a vintage rocking chair after seeing
THIS EXACT ONE in my "Fit Pregnancy" mag. The one
in the magazine had been painted a vintage green color...all
except the cane, which is pretty cute to vamp up an older rocker.
It's in pristine condition with no holes or instability
in the cane seat and back. I love it! I can't wait to finish
the nursery so I can put it to good use in there when
the baby comes!
Question: should I paint it?
And lastly, who could pass up these sweet little
embroidered cloth napkins? I'll use them for
luncheons, tea, or what-have-you.
