Friday Favourites: Painting




I discovered this victorian oil painting in a second hand shop 12 years ago. It was without a frame and in a pile of old pictures. I asked the shop owner the price, to my amazement he said $6! I paid him quicker than you could blink your eye.

I love the little dragonflies.

Wishing you all a fab weekend.

just popped over to say hi and thanks for entering my giveaway.

I love all your finds you've shown us here- I think the colours are gorgeous...just my taste and style- shabby enough to be TOTALLY gorgeous!

Hope all is well with you and your family

Oh Tamara it's GORGEOUS....PERFECTLY decayed & worn....I have 6 x Victorian paintings (mostly roses) & they all show signs of wear....I ADORE each tear & TREASURE the way the paint has peeled off in places....Do you wonder about the person who painted your piece....?? I've woven incredible stories about my Sunday painters....!!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend Lovey....!

Cheers,
Tamarah :o)
