Happy Valentine's Day everyone. Hope you are all enjoying a great weekend. This morning I went treasure-hunting with my BFF Denise and my Valentine tagged along for the ride. I scored a few bargains, but the creme-de-la-creme was this gorgeous painting that I just had to share with you.
There was a yardsale advertised on Craig's List and when we found it, we discovered that it was right next door to the Habitat For Humanity ReStore. They have alot of hidden treasures, but until today I've never been lucky enough to find one.
I expected this to be waaaaaaay out of my price range.
But I was very surprised and excited to learn that they were only asking $25 and I snapped a picture of the pricetag just to prove it (cause even I couldn't believe it!).
The signature at the top left reads F. Julia Bach and is dated 1944.
I'm assuming it's a reproduction from the sticker on the back.
Did you see the number 2 written in marker next to the sticker? You know what THAT means! Some lucky duck scored this at some point over the years for a whopping $2!!!
I'm still happy to have only paid $25. I think she looks lovely sitting on top of my old desk in my Living Room. What do you think?
It will be a reminder of my Valentine's present to myself.
I'll post the rest of my day's finds during Thrifty Thursday. I was thinking about hosting a party starting in the Spring called Yardsale Saturday to show off all of our bargains. Might even have a prize for the winner each week - the person who scored the best bargain. Give me your thoughts on that as well.
Thanks and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
