A New Find

Once in a while I stumble upon a good find. Usually I am one second late and look longingly as someone walks off with a great find at either a yard sale, consignment store or retail store. But this time I found something I really like and it was a good price.

Kim at One Woman's Cottage Life has an inspiration piece that is a large canvas by artist Kim Parker. I always loved it mainly because I love color. At Home Goods last week I found this Kim Parker framed giclee print in the clearance aisle. It was only $19.95 so I grabbed it. I think it was in the clearance aisle because it has something on the frame but it came off when I cleaned it up when I got home.

The title is "Lush Garden" and it is a signed and number print.
I've been looking around on line and I think I did good on price. But that doesn't much matter because I just love the colors and it looks great in my family room. By the way, there was a woman following me around in Home Goods the whole time I was there. I think she was waiting for me to put this down. For once I was there in time and not a second late as usual. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket this week!

  4. Congrats ... and too bad for the lady following you around (I had someone actually take stuff out of my cart once - talk about tacky - I was so upset).

I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
