Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays

I wanted to join Linda at Coastal Charm for her Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays party!  I stopped at a yard sale and saw this picture.  I love it!  It reminds me of a print my mother used to have, so that is probably the reason I love it so much.  It was $2!  I also LOVE the frame…




I am going to repaint the black on the frame, but I haven’t had a chance to do that yet.


This print I have had for a very loooong time.  My parents got it at an auction when I was probably 12 years old.  It hung in my room for years and years and I took it with me when I left home.


Pictures are the HARDEST thing for me to take a photo of!  I keep getting reflections!  But I do love this print!



Well, that is all I have today!  Please check out Linda’s blog and visit the other participants!

Thank you for visiting!


  1. Great find with the still life. I love the little girl praying. I can see why you love it too.

  2. What a great frame on that first picture, Lou Cinda! Love all that detail.

  3. I love seeing what people find at tag sales and out thrifting. I cannot believe you got that antique print and frame for $2! You stole that one, Lucinda! And the other one with the praying bear and child is so sweet. I was just thinking about things that were in my room as a child. I had a pretty grown-up room with the exception of my toys, and I think that is one reason I love whimsy so much! I had botanicals on the wall and also a very scary picture of my grandparents sat on a piece of furniture, and I used to be terrified of it. For some reason, the photographer had shot a bust shot of them and had floated it in the picture. I knew he was dead, and it used to scare me to death. LOL! Vivid imagination.

  4. Lou Cinda,
    Thanks for coming to NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS...I hope you are having a blast at the PAR-TAY! Great buy with that print...luv that frame! What can I say about that 2nd print?'s the sweetest thing ever...I understand why you still have it:)


  5. What a wonderful find!
    And having that print still with you is so special.

  6. Great frame. I kind of like the distressed look of it, but I'm guessing that doesn't work with the style you're going for. Great find though!

  7. What a great find. I just love the print of the little girl and bear. Somethings never go out of style and you never get tired of looking at them. This is one of them.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog! It means so much to me and please come again :)
