Who would have thought in a million years that I would find wall art that I love at Goodwill?! Not, I-that’s for sure but this is exactly what I have found to be true. The other day I found these sweet framed bird prints. The cost was 2.99 each. The frames were brown-stored –in-a-pile –in –the- garage scratched up. This is never a problem. I ALWAYS paint my frames anyway. I chose this light blue color and shabbed them up a bit with sand paper.
But I loved the birds and the vibrant colors used by the artist. And who is this Jacob Bates Abbott? He has a beautiful style. As it turns out, he was a celebrated artist that is especially famous for his illustrations for the Audobon Society. Robins with their nests of blue eggs always warms my mother-of-five children’s soul. I also found this nostalgic small town Christmas scene for 1.99. I did the same treatment to the dated gold frame.
Love this country Christmas scene for 2.99. The frame was a shiny-bright gold-yikes! In 2 minutes it was Colonial Red by spray paint. At the moment it is propped up next to the red iron cat food dish for Emmett and Reeses’ viewing pleasure.
Don’t judge the look on his face!
