in other weekend news

I thrifted these:


the woman who checked me out mentioned what a lovely frame I'd gotten...when I explained that I also liked the needlework she looked at me like I had two heads, both with bad taste.


the painting is signed and dated '32

p.s. thank you so much for all your nice comments about the photos from yesterday & for making me feel a little less weird :)

IMO there is nothing better than finding an original, signed painting at a thrift store, period.

Let's face it, the God of thrift store scores is your best friend.

I love the Barbie shoes photos by the way. I'm starting to enjoy taking photos of tiny things myself.

I know how the thrifting goes, what I love, others usually won't. They look at me like, huh? and just don't get it. Well, I totally love both of your pictures! Good going :)

I like the embroidery too, but it's on a wrong frame. It should be slightly smaller and oval to make the embroidery look better. :-)
