Three new prints

The partridge print is from St Catharines Kijiji.* I love it so much!!!! These bad birds went into the toy room. The seller was an older gentleman. They received it as a wedding gift over 30 years ago. His daughter had it for a while but decided to sell. I can't make out the signature. (The back of the frame says "The Covey" Partridge)

The second is a small Peter Andrew photo from Art Interiors. Part of his highway series. I bought it last summer and finally had it framed. I always intended to put it here. I am glad it worked out!

The third print is one that I picked up for 15gpb at Salvation Army** in London last weekend. It came in a cheapie metal frame that we had to leave behind. Love the soft colours and the lazy afternoon up the creek feeling. By Sally Richmond.

*My parents picked it up for us. We pass through St Catharine's about once a month, so I started trolling their classifieds. 
**There was only a small section of house stuff in the front of this Salvation Army. I almost didn't notice the print. If there had been separate section of framed stuff, I would have been drawn to it immediately...but no...the print was sitting on the floor, leaning against a dumpy display case, right next to the door. I saw it on the way out. Sometimes, at a thrift, I end up talking myself into buying an item. I say 'yah but if you don't buy it, you won't get another chance' or, worse yet 'you came all the way here, you have to find something worth your time!'...but, you see, I was already exiting the store when this minty green caught my eye. I loved it! I wonder, if I was at an arts and craft market, would I have singled out this particular piece? I'd like to think that's the case. I tell myself all kinds of wonderful stories when I buy something. Someone bought it from the artist could have been me. Oh and it just came into the store that morning.
