Thrifting Treasures - 2nd Time Around

I love garage saling - I always go without a definite thing in mind to "hunt for" because then you won't miss the "possibilities". Last week I found a lovely thing. This is an original oil on canvas painting of a beautiful arrangement of roses. I hope Mr. Robert Cox (who signed the painting) never finds out that someone sold his painting for $.25 - that's right - $.25! What a deal and I love it! Right now it's on top of the old chippy cabinet on the sunporch - it may move but for right now, it's there.

Go over to Diane's A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words and see the lucky people who found other treasures and have re-purposed them for their homes! Thanks, Diane, for hosting!

Hi Pammie Jo, 25 cents is what keeps us going to those thrift stores and yard sales etc. I love that it is signed too. You can Google the artist. You never know???

Enjoy!

Hugs...Jeanne
