SO GLAD I'm a Scavenger!


I found this set of blue vase prints
in the latest catalogue I received from
Ballard.
Gorgeous, aren't they?
I love Ballard's styling and
it is often a source book of
decorating inspiration.
However, this one time,
I was one step ahead of them!


Several years ago I found two unframed prints
in a local "antique" (i.e. junk) shop for $5.00 each.
I have loved blue and white forever
so could not pass them up. 


I framed them myself with frames from Michaels.


They now hang in my dining room.
Because of their position, 
the lighting in that room,
and my questionable photography skills,
I can't show you a really nice picture
of how they look.
They hang on either side of the 
dining room's archway into the living room 
and are a nice compliment to the
blue and white vases I have displayed there.


Now for the real beauty of it all...
Ballard's  19-inch square prints are priced at
$179.00 each.
My 19 x 23-inch prints cost me approximately
$40.00 each.

Priceless...

Score!! (as my daughter would say!) Beautifully done, Susan.

Thank you so much for your sweet note. I hear you about choosing to step away from the commenting thing... it eats time. :/

Love your beautiful yarn combination in your jacket project. I look forward to seeing more of it... blessings ~ tanna

Don't you just love when you can create something like this at such a better price. I realize you weren't copying; that you already had yours:-) . Your prints are lovely and go perfectly with your collection of blue and white.
