$8

I never thought my return to Solid Cherry would be because of a Cinderella-esque painting, but here you go:


She's a really great painting albeit bizarre subject for my tastes.  She's 12" x 16", oil on canvas, unsigned.  I bought her yesterday at a new-to-me thrift store (sadly, no Pyrex).  Still deciding where to put her...

I haven't been out much to the thrifts lately...but there's never any Pyrex.  EVER!  The supply has officially dried up, or some other sneaky thrifter is scoring it all and blogging about it in a parallel universe!  Grrr!  While my collection is bursting at the seams, I wouldn't mind rescuing some pieces from the hands of amateurs.

We moved into our new home but it is still "coming together" -- with our little George running around these days we don't get much done except diapers!  Erm, there *might* be some boxes left that are still sealed with packing tape.

George turned 1 on June 12, and he's awesome:






Here's to happy thrifting, and hopefully I'll be around here more! xoxo

p.s. Happy Independence Day, of course!!

Oh my gosh. George is 1? I can't believe it. This is such a fun stage. He's such a sturdy boy. I bet he has you running after him all day. What a smile!
