When I was in central Oregon last week for the 4th of July, I managed
to get out and hit a few antiques stores with my mom.
I was feeling in a bit of an antiquing slump -
even my Farm Chicks finds didn't really excite me -
but hitting a few new places held some promise!
Well, I really found some great things, including
this beautiful vintage oil painting! Can you believe
it was just $20? It was unframed but I happen to
have an old frame that fit it perfectly!
I am so happy with the color it brings to this corner
of my living room - and LOOK my fiddle leaf fig plant
is still fiddling along!
I am a big believer of using REAL art in your home -
I literally cringe every time I see someone carrying
a poster out of Ikea or HomeGoods -
not that there is anything wrong with grabbing
something if you need to fill a space, but with a little
patience and perseverance, your walls can look
a whole lot more interesting! And REAL
art doesn't have to break the bank!
What great finds have you discovered recently?
