If there is something that I like as much as a good old chair, it's a pretty picture. I'm always looking at pictures at stores, antique shops, thrift stores..........wherever there's a display.
Many years ago, my hubby's aunt gave me this picture.
I always loved the pretty delicate roses. I think she painted the frame. It's a large picture, and recently I've seen lots of these type of prints showing up at antique shops, but mostly in a smaller size.
Another sweet aunt knew that I loved this picture and gave it to me when she moved from her home to an apartment.
And this picture always intrigued me, which also came from a family member -
I love how the wood frame is etched with the design.
A few months ago our thrift shop was having 75% off on certain items. This picture caught my eye -
When I turned it over, this was on the back -
Years ago I used to buy Susan Winget calendars, so this print is probably from the 80's. Picked up this little picture for $2.50. I think it was a good buy :-)
On another day, I found this lovely lady -
I bought this mostly for the frame, but then decided that the picture would look nice with my tea cups.
And my all time favorite is this sweet picture -
This sweet gal hung in the thrift store for three months, and everytime I went into the store, she called to me. I missed the 1/2 price day, but I kept thinking maybe they would mark down the pictures. One day I finally asked one of the workers about the picture and if they could do any better on the price. To my surprise and delight she marked it down to $6.00!
If I had more wall space I would probably hang a gallery of pictures. But these seem to quench my craving for the moment ;-)
