Goodwill Picture Fix

Hello Everybody!

I love when I get comments on a post and some of you left some wonderful ones about my

I had been debating whether or not I wanted to fill in the chippy spots on this picture I purchased at the Goodwill with some black paint or leave it be.

I had originally thought that it had a sort of old, vintage, worn feel to it, but,
 the more I looked at it and especially after seeing the pictures
of it on my blog, I thought,
it doesn't look good at all!!!

So I knew that I wanted to touch it up with paint.



There's still some chips here and there and it's not perfect by any means,
but, that's exactly why I like it!

I changed the background paper too. It's from my stash here at home, I'm sure it will be changed again though.
Several times:)
I felt it really needed a burst of color. Since it will be housed in my bookcase which is darker wood, it looked way too washed out with such a light background.

This little vignette is sitting on another Goodwill find. A big heavy thick wood tray. I love it. When I first saw it, I immediately thought I would paint it white, add a graphic and make it into a lazy suzan for my kitchen table.
Now, I'm not so sure.

I found these little leather bound books at Half Price Books. I love to collect old leather books! I was going to use them for a project that I will post about soon, but they didn't work out, so......they will stay with me for now!

Again, thank you for your comments and for stopping by,

Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

It's very trouble-free to find out any topic on web as compared to textbooks, as I found this paragraph at this website.

Hi! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able
to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
