Thrifty Friday On Saturday!

I didn't thrift shop much last week but I did find some thrifty frames!
Michael's had frames for 70% off so I went and found a frame for the watercolor of Charlie!
I love the color of the frame, it is perfect for this watercolor.  I was thinking white or black but this frame is just right! $6

While shopping I decided to finally buy a frame for a large photo of a Paris flower market I took 3 years ago on my trip to Paris.  
Sorry for the glare from the glass but I'm so excited to have this framed.  I'll hang it in my bedroom.  frame $10

On a junkin road trip yesterday I stopped at this filled to the brim antique/junk store! 
Diggers come on in!  I had a great time and found a couple of treasures which I will share soon! 

I haven't seen the Grands in a week so I'm off to spend some time with them today! 

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Your painting of Charlie is so sweet, Linda. How nice it will be to have it out and framed now. I hope it sparks all good memories of that darling cat. :)

Hi Linda! Wow, I've been away much too long. I don't remember you having another grandchild. Isn't she adorable, too, just like Tiger! Congrats! I know you love them like crazy. And I obviously didn't know, or forgot, that you are an artist. Your watercolor is beautiful!

The frame is perfect for Charlie. You have to tell me where to go for the shop filled with books. I love a place to plunder as you well know.

I am struck by all the glass bottles on the shelves. It would be so fun to rummage through them.
