Sometimes ya just gotta stop and smell the roses.................

My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia

Linking today for Kristin's "Tuesday's Treasures". I know the painting looks alittle small in the pics, but it's really quite large, 24x36 to be exact. Enjoy.............This painting is truely one of my "treasures"!

I just couldnt resist posting my latest find. When i saw it , i was in love and knew i would take this painting home with me no matter how much it cost, lol.................What i wasnt prepared for was the price. When she said $375, i just knew i couldnt afford it and asked if i could do a layaway. The store owner looked at me as if i were insane............ Apparently i mis-understood, as it was only $3.75. I was thrilled!! Where do u find an origional oil for $3.75?  I knew i would probably be able to find a frame that it would fit. As u can see in my "Shabby french Re-do" this frame sits empty. I also have an empty white one on the opposite side of the bed. I really liked them empty. They are so architural all by themselves and can stand alone in any design. Well, i was playing around, an wa la,  it fit...........So the painting now has a home in a beautiful frame, now ill have to find one for the smaller white frame. Do ya think anyone will believe me when i tell them how much i paid???
