It’s no secret I love old things. My place has filled with items I have collected over the years. I always favor the unusual and love to imagine the hidden history behind the objects.

Today I discovered two pictures in the bottom of a box that were full of broken frames in a local vintage store. I could hardly wait to get home and clean them up and savor my discovery. They were both quite lovely in their own way. The one picture I discovered is a print of a painting by Paul Peel, a Canadian painter. He was known for his often sentimental nudes. What a great find, beautifully framed and stamped.

The other is really intriguing and I’m not sure who the artist is. It caught my attention as I love how the gentleman is studying his cactus growing. The details are very nice and I spent some time studying them with my magnifying glass so as not to miss anything. The wonderful old clock and shadows on the wall, piles of paper strewn about, just a very unusual room altogether.

Imagine picking up these two pictures for $8.00, it made my day and they look wonderful in my place.

“I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”.. Anaïs Nin
