yesterday, we were loading the van for the flea market this weekend - had some trash to throw in the dumpster and look what i found in the dumpster -
it had it's back to me - and i could see a label on the backside - and i thought - hmmm - wonder what that is - i have found some cool stuff in this particular dumpster - so i went back to the warehouse and got a chair to stand on so i could reach into the dumpster - as i was doing this i thought, i bet it's one of those long skinny group style photos - i still could not see the front - so when i grabbed it and flipped it over - i almost fell off my chair - i collect blue bonnet paintings -
left side of the painting ...
right side of the painting ...
the signature - yeah it is signed - i can't make out the signature - but it looks like a nice piece to me - according to the label on the back - it was framed by a company in san antonio, texas - they were active during the 20s and 30s - thought about selling it, but i think i am going to keep -
also, forgot to mention - it was raining - lightly, but had rained hard early that morning - luckily the lid on the dumpster had been closed - also found a cute little green depression glass creamer - will probably list that on etsy ..
more to come -
