Picture Perfect Thrifty Find #1

I found this sweet picture hanging on the wall between two wall units at one of our local thrift shops.
The black and sepia colouring of the frame
and picture made me take notice.
I liked the period dress of this young lady
as well as her soft smile.
So, for $1.99 she had to come home with me.
I found this pretty doily as well.
A larger motif is at one end,
so it makes it perfect for hanging over the edge
of a cabinet, small table,
or a chair.

They look well together.
A handmade primitive pear is added
for a touch of autumn.
Fall weather has found its way back.
Blustery, rainy, and chilly.
A found treasure always tends to warm the heart
whatever the weather.
Stay tuned for another picture perfect thrifty find
coming soon.
Have a blessed day!

  1. Diane ~ what a wonderful picture! I would have snapped this up. The doily is so pretty and they all look fabulous together in your vignette.

  2. What a great picture and the doily...wow what a find. I love the handmade pear! Such a cozy theme.

  3. A lovely find, Diane. Portraits always make me wonder who that person was.....I love the embroidery on your doily :) I have a jug and insulator just like yours! Hugs and blessings xo Karen

  4. Hi Diane,
    Thanks for coming by to visit............and for your nice comments........they were appreciated.
    We live in Florida so our Winters are not too bad and even when they are they usually last a week or so and it warms up again to the 50 or 60, so that makes it very bearable, for sure. This year summer started in Spring...........so we are so over this hot weather. This week we
    have had a cool snap, so it has been like Fall and feels wonderful even tho it does go up into the 80's, much better than 90-100.........
    Your vignette is so cute, and that was a great find. I have some placemats that look just like yours under the picture. It looks very
    nice with your portrait.
    Hope you have a lovely rest of the week, nice to meet another sister in Christ.
    Blessings, Nellie
