Trash to Treasure

Tuesday....
Here are two matching hand painted pictures I picked up this past week at a local thrift store for only $7.50 each. Are they not fabulous? The photo doesn't do it justice, the flash washed some of the color out of the painting--- these are cute, I'm talking super cute!I was needing two larger pictures to go on either side of my $10 dollar antique hutch that I picked up long ago. The two paintings fit perfectly with my shabby chic style! I shop at thrift stores (I call them boutiques lol) allllll the time and I have a house full of treasures that others have discarded as "junk"....hooray for me!

Hi Cheryl,
The pictures look great in your home. I really like the unique style of the arched frames.

I love the name you have for your thrift store! Too cute!

Thanks for being a part of Trash to Treasure!

Cheryl, your pictures are just beautiful and the price is unreal. The arched frame makes the flowers look so pretty. They are the perfect accent for your wall. Lucky you and I love that you say boutique. It is much classier than 'thrift store.' LOL.

Hugs...Jeanne
