Garage Sale Find

A couple of weeks ago I went garage saling with my friend. As soon as I got out of the car I saw this print...


I really loved the frame but the roses were the wrong colour for my house but at $5 I couldn't miss a bargain. I decided I would remove the back when I got home but unfortunately the back didn't come off so I took it along to my glazier and he cut me a piece of mirror to fit and even glued it in for me!!
I am really happy now it is hanging in my family room - I am especially happy it only cost me $20 all up. 



Mr FH suggested I sand it down and repaint it and it would look nice then!!! He was surprised when I said this was how it was meant to be. How come men just don't 'get it'.



I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday.

Beautiful job! Don't you just love when you find a "find"!!!! Visiting from Met. Mondays. I'd like to invite you to come plant your "creative seeds" at Plant a Punkin Seed Party at Punkin Seed Productions. It's usually on Fridays but it's open all week because I'm doing a little give away! Hope to see you there!
