Little Miss VJIMT is hosting a sleepover this weekend in honor of her 9th birthday, so I'm pretty sure there will be no yard sales for me. Also, no sleeping, so I figured I'd finally finish this post that's been hanging around…
You've seen the vintage painted portraits we've been finding at yard sales and flea markets -- this one just sold! -- and here are a few of them decorating our home.
This "Lady in Red"…
…sits atop our family room mantel.
… got bumped from the mantel, but I like her colors better here in the dining room anyway.
Most of our vintage paintings reside on our second floor. "Green with Envy" is in the upstairs hallway next to the washer & dryer!
This folk art baby portrait sits in our bedroom on a faux fireplace mantel.
This portrait of my mother-in-law Grace was painted in the early 1950s. I especially like that we had the original photograph of the occasion and could tuck it under the lace frame.
We also have some still life compositions. This large vase of roses is also in our bedroom.
As is this still life with apples (although I just saw Mr. VJIMT put it in the Clover Market pile!).
And these bright and cheery daisies.
Hope your weekend is filled with more treasures and shut-eye than I will be getting!
