Vintage Floral PaintingVintage Floral PaintingVintage Wall Christmas TreeVintage Wall Christmas Tree

Finding vintage treasures at estate sales is one of the most wonderful feelings.  It’s kind of like getting a hug from your mom.  This little floral painting is nothing fancy or done by anyone famous, in fact I am pretty sure it was done by the home owner.  The sweet yellow flowers fill my heart with joy and the gold frame just is the cherry on top of a bowl of yummy ice cream.

I almost passed this Christmas tree wall hanging up.  I was purchasing the art in the garage when I saw it hanging next to all the gardening supplies.  Whimsical and bohemian all in one, the yarn tree was more than likely handmade by the home owner as well, basing upon the plethora of craft supplies in the house.  The pom poms and fringe make my heart jump for joy.

I will treasure these items for many years and I feel a spiritual connection to the woman behind them.

What do you look for at estate sales?  Have you found anything you love recently?
