Flea Market Finds


I seem to be having a bit of a purple patch at the local garage sales of late. I can never pick them though - the days when I spot a sale and from first glance, think there is nothing, is usually when I'm most surprised. Other days I feel it in my waters that I'm going to have a successful garage hunt and there's nothing but whipper snippers!

I have always had a soft squishy spot for old oil paintings and this week I found some that fit right at home. I thought they may have been originals but then I spied a number of copies at my local Oppy. 

Does anyone know much about these paintings? Would love to know their history - even if they are mass produced! 

For more flea market finds, head over to Sophie's.

I actually know someone who used to door to door with very like pictures and signatured by the artist himself;), I'll say no more but that I feel sorry for the jones'...:) xo
