1 + 1 = 6

one estate sale + one trip to the thrift store = 6 new paint by numbers





I might need a paint by number 12 step program or something...

I love these! We might be in competition, though, as I just started my own collection. My first piece is this crazy horse. I named him Cinnamon.

OH MY GOD! The second one from the bottom is hanging in my grandparents' basement. They passed away a few years ago and we're all fighting over who gets to have it :)

You know, I never looked twice at these when I saw them at thrift stores, until I saw them on your blog awhile back. I actually bought one a few weeks ago, for fun, and I actually think it's kinda cool now!

I think I need a Pyrex/Fire King 12 Step Program. Actually, a general thrifting 12 Step would be great. You may be on to something there!

Well, if we are going to talk about 12 step programs, I'd better start with my RSS feeds for craft blogs LOL!!! I can't imagine a day without reading these and adding to my mental list of "I've got to do/have/that!" ~ Gina

Your collections looks like fun. There are worse addictions. You could collect black velvet paintings!

Gina- Your sisters visiting Chicago are worried. We're going to the Art Institute, and if there are no paint-by-numbers in the collection, we will send a donation for the 12 step program.
