Finding rusty old junk is fun! Nevertheless, I have found that no matter how much "stuff" I find and collect, only God can fully satisfy my heart. Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Lovely Ladies

I bought this set of 4 vintage "lovely ladies" pictures at the flea market last weekend. I was hesitant about selling them because they were so beautiful, but nevertheless I had bought them to sell so I took them straight to my booth before I got too attached. They sold in less than 24 hours! I had a feeling they wouldn't last long so I was glad I had taken some pictures of them so I could "keep" them on my blog to enjoy and share with you.

The pictures were absolutely gorgeous, but I also loved the frames and I knew they were worth what I paid for them. I would love to find out who the artist was and a little more about them now. I sold the set for a considerable profit but I still have a feeling they were very special and I may have priced them lower than I should have. Oh well, now they have a new owner who appreciates their beauty. I love finding things to put in my booth that make other people's hearts sing too.

*Update: Thanks to Sheila at One Charming Thing for the information on the artist, Huldah. Find out more about her here:
Amazing detail on the frames
I decided to give each of the lovely ladies names. I used my Grandmothers' and Great Grandmothers' names, and then I imagined a little bit about them from the pictures.

So shabby French!

This is Ella. She is obviously in love with that dreamy gaze. When her beau arrives to meet her in the park she is sure to give him that hanky as a token of her affection.


Here is Polly and little Miss Lula. Polly is Miss Lula's tutor. Polly is taking Miss Lula  into town to buy a fine dress for her birthday party.

 I adore their accessories: hats, gloves, umbrellas, scarves, lace and jewelry...everything I love to collect for my booth!

This is Cora. She is intellectual and reserved, and as kind
as she is beautiful.


Here is Chloe. Her greatest love is flowers. She visits the markets each week to buy
fresh flowers for her vanity.


So as I complete this post I do have a little bit of seller's remorse, but it just fuels my fire for the next round of treasure hunting this weekend.

 Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to stop and take the time to smell the flowers this week!

  1. Hi, your cute prints are from paintings from the artist named "Huldah" you'll be able to google/etc. and find out more about him/her. They are collectible, but in the PNW they don't sell for more than $8-$12 each (which is why I collected them for a time). I only have one left (smaller home), but I continue to love them. :)

    Best Wishes,

    1. Oh thank you so much! I knew someone out there would recognize them. I will add this to my post. I priced them accordingly. Thanks again!

  2. Adorable, love the story's with the pictures! I would have a hard time letting them go too!

  3. Oh I love the stories! Cora is my favorite! They are truly lovely ladies! Thank you for sharing them with us!
