If a Painting Could Talk?

If a Painting Could Talk?
A week ago, while out shopping with my family, I spotted this lil treasure of a painting in a local shoppe-
I knew I wanted it-but didn't need it..
Trouble with having a shoppe-the lines between shopping for  shoppe (re-sale) and shopping for home get crossed  way too often..

BUT I Oh So Loved it- I was even brave and asked for a better price- But still knew I shouldn't be buying for home, and a bit too pricey for shoppe,not that I would let it go there- so I slowly walked outside, and Apparently talked about it all the way home-and days after.

Friday Night as I was working on an upholstery piece for shoppe and wrapped in the history & magical beauty of watching the Royal Wedding..
I never even noticed my Husband sneak the Chippy Old Painting in our Laundry room.
And in my effort to multi task-putting away his boots on my way back from sewing some welting, I just about fell over-when he was sitting on our washing machine waiting for me to notice..

Isn't this the most amazing Chippy Painting Ever,
Where did this old painting sit-how did it get so chippy-who painted it-who is it- I JUST LOVE IT!!!
Yes, I do have the BEST Husband ever...


  1. yes, it is a great painting! I find that if I am still thinking about a possible treasure the next day, I'd better go back and get it...glad that you had an accomplice that knows you so well!
    enjoy it!
