Vintage Charm

Pin It
"Vintage Charm"
Oil, 8" x 10" on museum quality canvas panel.
$400 with display easel.
I love anything and everything "vintage". The more chipped, the better. And if the color is anything close to sage green, I am smitten. When my husband tried to clean out the garage last month he left a large pile of furniture for the trash man. Each piece had been originally painted sage green and were showing varying stages of "vintage" wear. Needless to say, I snuck them back in to the garage before the trash man came around ...
Some days I feel a bit "vintage" myself. I forgot when you turn fifty some of the aging starts to show. I know I am showing signs of wear but I do believe you are only as old as you feel. Fortunately, most days I still feel like I am twenty years old. I have so many things I want to accomplish that I still believe you should enjoy every day to the fullest. Even if you are starting to show a few signs of wear and tear.

Love the vintage charm.
And we are like wine - mellow with beauty with age.

Personally, I think you are lying about your age....but in other news--love the painting and vintage thoughts on both it and living. Hopefully we all will become more collectible with each passing year..:))))

I love the greens too. Some of our favorite things are those that are worn and spark good memories.

I especially love the vintage comment since I am even the age. The painting is wonderful and beautiful.

Girlfriend it must be that California air - no way do you look 50! I pegged you for mid 40's. So, if you want to feel good, come visit ME! Love the vintage green on the boat....

There's a refreshing softness to this piece that appeals to me.
