Weekend Find

There are always a ton of yard/garage sales on craigslist and last weekend was no exception. I try to be picky as I don't want to drive all over town and back and I want vintage goodies.
I went to the one in our neighborhood, it was pathetic. Then we went to one that was nearby and said vintage. She had some really nice stuff, but was asking a lot for most items. The one item I really wanted was a vintage wooden doll house, it was 45$ not going to happen. I have always wanted a doll house and someday I WILL have one:)
I only got one treasure, check it out!

It is so shabby and chippy I just love it. The frame is missing a few pieces and the print is rumpled and the backing is showing through in the bottom right corner. BUT I love it anyway! The colors are perfect, and it has roses on it, what more could I ask for.

It is now hanging above my bed. It is huge and my bedroom was sooo bare before. It is the one room in the house I never seem to get to. However when I bought it I had no idea where I was going to put it, I just knew I loved it and would find a place for it!

BTW- I use the vintage bed light every night while I read! My mom and grandma bought it for me quite a few years ago and I love it! Wish the cord was tucked behind the bed like it is supposed to be. Oh well! Apparently I need to straighten the picture out too, sheesh the things you notice in photos!

Off to knit!

It is lovely! I'm like you, the flaws do not bother me. Frankly, I think it adds to the charm of the piece. I think it looks great!!!
