Thrifty Life Thursday #33 and Features from Last Week!

At first, I just grabbed these because of the round frames...

You add a little interest to a gallery wall. 

I thought they were prints, but they might be originals. Samson and Angelica.

Any clues? 

While you're thinking, let me show you some features from last week:

This week, we welcomed several new thrifters who had some wonderful finds!
Diana from Adirondack Girl @ Heart found some things that made my pulse race a bit faster...

She had other cool goodies, too. Drop by to check them out!

Dianne from Deanie's Stash found stuff you will NOT a 99 year old's farm sale. Grab a bib, and head over much good stuff, I'll bet Diane has not touched the ground since the weekend.

I could be a tad envious...except she's such a nice person. 

Meg at My Vintage Life shares a love of vintage books among other things...

These are just downright luscious. I could eat them. Seriously.

This weekend, Cathy and I are going to estate sales and I'm trying to talk her into going to some sketchy parts of Dallas to check out thrift stores. We'll have to compare and contrast next week...this is new territory for me. 

Now then, let's see what goodies you've discovered recently!

      Hi Revi ... such a fun party ... love your feature picks ... those vintage pink books are awesome. What a treasure. I love your round frames and the paintings are really cute. Are the centers porcelain? I agree with Donna ... sell them as is ... they might have some value. Good luck.

      Such interesting little plaques.
      I don't have a clue about them! Are they marked on the back? or signed on the front...I couldn't tell from here. :)
      Thanks for putting together a great thrifty party each week.

      In the 1950s my mother had not Samson and Angelica, but Samson and Delilah; it gave me quite a start to see Samson after such a long time.

      I love those round frames you found! If the paper the art is on feels like poster paper it is probably a print. If it feels like real paper it is most likely an original. If you are not sure have it appraised but that is how I tell. Fingers crossed for originals!
