Last night, after I closed the shop I decided to head over to Abode to check out their Black Friday sale. The friendly gals at Abode were offering half off any item in the store. Even though I was completely exhausted from our event at Second Hand Chic I just could not resist the lure of a half off sale. Well, I was not dissapointed. I found this sweet little vintage painting for a mere $15! I just adore amateur artwork. I like to picture the cute little 50's housewife working away on this piece. After a long day of caring for her family she puts the children to bed and sets up her paints. The love and devotion is apparent in every brush stroke. The innate need for self expression is a universal one. It is what makes us human.
