 Do you like veggies?

I do love some fresh vegetables, it's one of the many things that I like about summer.
I could however do without the triple digit heat here in Alabama this week. 

Give me a home grown summer tomato and I'm in heaven, especially with some mayo, a slice of Vidalia onion, salt and pepper all put together between two slices of bread!

But I really wanted to share with you one of my thrifty finds, some different kind of vegetables. 

Two posters I found at the thrift store and hung in my kitchen.
I only paid $6.88 each and while cleaning them up I found a $229.96 price tag on each one. 

They measure 21" x 27" a great size for where I wanted to hang them.
I wasn't crazy about the gold frames so I just brushed on some black paint and let a little of the gold show through. 
Super easy, my kind of project!

 I even like the water stains.  I think it gives them an aged look.

It wasn't until I got home and started cleaning them that I noticed they were FRENCH!

Who does that!!??  Buys something without looking at it closely.
I've done it way to many times, especially at auctions and thrift stores.
Sometimes I have pleasant surprises and sometimes not so pleasant.
I guess I just get so excited I loose my head for a few minutes.

Please tell me I'm not the only one that does this.

Oh well, c'est la vie!

  1. Yes mam! We southern ladies love a good tomato sandwich, w/mayo and onion! Perfection!! The prints are perfect too! A great find!

  2. Good morning, Elizabeth! Yes, I love a veggie sandwich, especially with a little avacado! I have definitely bought things that I should have looked at closer, but I figure I must have liked it a lot to buy it so it's okay. Have a nice day! Twyla
