Do You Love Botanical Prints as Much as I Do?
I was at the Goodwill recently with good intentions of getting rid of junk I already had but the "junker" in me had to stop in because when you give away junk you should always pick up more right? I made a quick drop off and ran inside to check it out hoping I wouldn't find anything I "needed" but low and behold sitting on the flower were all these amazing vintage botanical prints and I'm a sucker for pretty vintage prints. I will say that out that out of the 6 that were there I only bought 4. They were just to gorgeous to pass up. They have been sitting in my closet for a few weeks now but as the weather was rainy and I was getting stir crazy I decided to bring them out, clean them up, and figure out a place for them. You can see close up photos of these beauties on the blog.
I'm just a sucker for vintage prints of any kind. My office is filled with Japanese prints that I'm in love with. I'm thinking of collecting some scenic vintage prints now for our basement when it's done being remodeled.
I found this beauty at a flea market in Fort Collins Colorado which by the way if you are ever in that area head South on College Ave and you will find a row of fantastic flea markets and antique shops. It's my favorite Sunday jaunt.
I picked out a few and replaced what I had in the frames with these beautiful large vibrant botanicals! Prints from books are such a good and affordable way to decorate your walls. You can find botancial and bird prints at just about any flea market. I have been lucky enough to find some not only beautiful one's but nicely framed and matted as well. I love change so this idea is perfect for me.
These 18th Century Robert Furber flower arrangement calendar prints are GORGEOUS! I was so happy when I saw them sitting there on the floor of our local Goodwill.
Here was my flea market and thrift store finds in the last month that I gathered together. I couldn't pass up on any of these.
I had bought this white frame for a picture I painted but the glass shattered so I decided I'd hang the green and gold Robert Furber print inside of it to add a little something, I actually really like the look of it framed in the white much better.
