Happy 4th of July!


Found this colorful painting at the Valley thrift store today while out with my mama. She found the beautiful multimedia art print below to go in her bedroom. (It's originally from Pier 1). Will look so nice. 

Also found some nice carved shabby chic style white photo frames, a painted pottery bowl with a lovely blue bird, a basket and a mini stained glass! Love them all!!!

Happy 4th of July weekend and hope you find some great thrifted goodies!!!

Trying to stay cool!

It's been pretty warm here in Escondido and one way to stay cool is by thrifting, in a nice, cool thrift shop! Found this sweet clay Peruvian band today at the local Salvation Army. 

This plate is a smaller version of a similar plate I found a few months ago. 

And I couldn't pass up these colorful gnomes to add to my garden decor. Hoping they bring us some luck and stay out of mischief!

Stay cool!

Landscape Mother Lode!

I have been looking for rustic, homey-looking landscape paintings for our master bedroom, which is on its way to becoming lodge-y. I had found one large one (previously posted) when Ellen and I were in Sun City.  We went to a store in Murrieta and hit the Mother Lode of  lodge-y perfection!

This is all of them all together.

This is a tiny embroidery sampler, probably about 3.5 inches square.

Fun hill and lake.

Watercolor of Half Dome in Yosemite.  Probably going to lose the matte and frame.

Woods and water.  Like it!

Snowy watercolor scene.

Trees and stream with animals.

Just don't ask me what kind of animals they are.  No clue.

We got a very good deal on the lot of these, and Ellen had a coupon, so I ended up paying around $20 for all of them. Not bad for a bunch of landscapes, a bit of needlework and a couple of unidentified animals. I think Ellen is my Good Luck charm! Now to get to the hanging of the art!
