I have to go back...

 ...look what I found while thrifting yesterday.  The new year is the best time to thrift.  It's when everyone is clearing their clutter...thinking of spring...and beautiful things like this end up in the store.  

There were over 30 paintings in the store...all obviously painted by the same artist...I'm thinking maybe a student, as some of the pieces were unfinished or not as good as the two I picked.  After I got the paintings home and they looked so good I almost went back for more.  I need to go back really quickly today and take my time and look them over and pick up a couple more...where will I ever find such original art for next to nothing again?



 ...just look at how the colors pop against my brown wall...

  3. Yes yes I think you should. If you have room for it, I can see them all as part of a gallery wall.

  4. They look great!
    Is this a regular thrift like Salvation Army etc?
    I am in awe that you found such good stuff there.
    These have to come from one of those little hidden gems!
    How come I never find stuff like this? LOL

    I need to start going to the thrift stores to work on my place because I am not happy with it and I don't have a lot of money to expend on redecorating...
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Gabrielle,

    I went to a thrift store called Savers. It's in Hempstead, NY...the only one in the city according to their website. I'll do a post on them...they have stores all over the country.
