I'm having a Barn Sale coming up and I have been preoccupied with planning my little event and organizing all the items I will be selling. I have been pricing and collecting my things and getting excited about selling any excess that I haven't used or seen in a year or two.
Yesterday I bought some lovely greeting cards from different artists. I have collected quite a bit of frames over time and placed a few cards in the frames. They came out lovely. I'm quite happy and think it's more fun to buy a frame with a lovely print inside than the frame alone.
I had been looking for a couple of small paintings and had told the woman who owns a new little antique store to look out for one or two 5 by 7 oil or acrylic landscape framed paintings. She had said to check back in and when I checked in today, I found this.
I know, I know, I should not be spending if I'm looking to simplify and sell any excess but I saw her and immediately was smitten.
Isn't she lovely. I love everything about it. Her expression, the settee, the pillows, her dress although I would never show that much cleavage. (Actually I don't have any cleavage.) I even love the corner of the little framed painting behind her on the wall. But most of all, I love the frame. It is in perfect condition. I paid $49.00. After I found the perfect place for her, in my upstairs hallway, I knew I had made the right decision bringing her home.
