Swap Meet Red



A couple of Sundays ago, Brenda and I ventured out to our local Swap Meet eager to hunt and dig for treasure...and treasure is what we found. I purchased some vintage Superman comic books for Raquel's Beau, an old Coca Cola bucket for a friend and of course a irresistible churro...which is pretty much a straight donut...

then I found this...beautifully framed picture of vibrant red flowers. Approximately 34 x 29 with rich creme color framing. I've been trying to add little accents of red to incorporate into my very monochromatic living-room and felt that this would go perfectly on the mantel




I added a couple of accessories on either side and voile'




I love the composition of this painting..notice the detail of the almost invisible glass and the contrast of the creme to red flowers



comic books~$6, bucket~$6, churro~$2, picture~$8, bunny's happiness...priceless

  8. Very nice, bunny..and you spent so little!
    I too love 'finds' that will work in my place, but *sigh* I have so little space and too many finds...it's nice to decorate vicariously through my online friends...
