I have all the Easter decor put away. And I have been working diligently on reviving the old furniture that was recently purchased at garage sales. In a day or two I will be showing you what I have transformed them into! But, to give myself a break and have a little fun, I decided to keep the beautiful framed garden picture that I picked up for only $5 at a garage sale last Friday.
Remember this picture from my Diamonds In The Rough! post for week 4? I was unsure if I was going to keep this or sell it in my antique mall booth. But upon further inspection after taking it apart and cleaning the glass and repairing the small damage to the frame, I decided that I loved it enough to enjoy...at least for a while. You just can't beat the fabulous patina that old pictures get!
They have history. They have a story. Besides, gardens are one of my most favorite things!
I decided to place the picture in my laundry room of all places, but if you saw my home, you would understand that my walls are filled with 'stuff'. However, you will be pleased to know that I walked past the foyer fireplace and thought, "Hey, why not put the picture here"? So I set it up, did a little photo shoot and wanted to share with you.
I thought you might also like to see the garage sale books that I placed on the steps for a fun visual.
NOTE: You should be able to click on most of the pictures to enlarge to see further details.
