Thrifty Art Finds

vintage paintings
I love finding vintage art, especially at a good price!  There are a few of my recent finds.
vintage painting
Aren’t the colors pretty?  This is signed “Mary Elizabeth Lush 1937.”
vintage print
I have a thing for Audubon prints and this one will be a perfect Fall accessory.
duck painting
This really large duck painting was purchased from the auction a couple of weeks ago.  I love the blue colors but have not idea what I’m going to do with it.  There is a oily wet stain on the top of the mat that I don’t know what to do with.  It will probably end up in the booth.
sunflower painting
This was just a small unframed painting from GW.  The bright colors caught my eye!
hand painted saw
This country scene painted on a saw was another recent auction purchase.  It will be going to the booth this week.
Have you found any good art finds lately?

  1. I am really going to have to start looking at the art in the thrift stores. You really found some great items. Thanks for linking to TTF.


  2. Nice pieces! I painted a scene on a saw many years ago!

  3. Love them all Tammy! I agree with you on that turkey, perfect for fall!I have a small collection of vintage/thrift store paintings/prints in my home. I just love the way the paint and colors wear out. :-)

  4. Wonderful art treasures! I love the first floral one. Beautiful colors in it. thanks for sharing at TTF.

  5. Love the floral in the blue pitcher -- really pretty! The saw is fun -- I've always thought they were clever. I'll have to start looking at the art in thrift shops -- I usually just walk by since I have quite a bit of art already on my walls. But surely there's always room for more!

  6. What wonderful artwork you found! It is all very pretty, but I especially like the Audubon print and, yest, it will make a fine autumn decoration. Congrats on your great finds!


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments! I try to return the favor and visit each one of you! ~Blessings, Tammy~
