Thursday Thrifting

Gentle Friends, we made the thrift/consignment shop rounds over the weekend - and with no estate sales it was pretty slim pickings until......

..... we found this super folk painting from Mexico.  Called "Tras Mariposas" (After Butterfly's) I'm pretty sure it was bought by someone on vacation and then just tossed in a closet when they got home - as it had no frame and was in pretty dirty condition.  So I wiped it off and the colours popped - I already had this frame and it fit nicely so now we are living with it on the wall.

I also found a couple of pieces of pottery - a new Dedham Pottery piece and a older Royal Copley vase - and a great DVD copy of  "The Iron Giant."  It's always fun to find a couple of things.

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

There's a town in the UK called Dedham, very picturesque. It's in the area where the artist Constable came from.

The colors in that painting are so vibrant, and with that frame that you had at home already....it was like it was just waiting for you to find it :)
I love it.
