Hope you are enjoying a good week. I am busy here like most weeks and beginning to enjoy much warmer days in the Lone Star State. Temps are nearing the 90's but the ozone levels are high making it hazardous at times. What to do when it gets like this? Well, stay in the studio and enjoy creating of course.
On my misson with home redos, we are making great progress and nearing the final updates. I am having so much fun and with the help of my dear guy, the work is moving right along.
Last year I found this great print from Floral Artist, Paul de Longpre 1896. It is considered a yard long and fits perfectly above a sofa. I have shared this treasure in the past when I first found it, but I gave the frame an update with cottage cream paint, a little light distress and re-hung over the sofa.
When I spotted this rose beauty, in one of my favorite antique markets, it had a price tag of 10 dollars. I couldn't believe it and asked one of the sales associates, if I was reading that right. Certainly a few zeros were missing. No, the price is 10 dollars. WHAT!?! I had that print in my hands so fast it would make your head spin. What a rare find. Not a thing wrong with it either. No damage, just perfect under glass and perfect for my updated living room that I had been planning and gathering treasures for over the past year.
