Always love it when I can think of myself ahead of a trend. Last month's issue of Country Home magazine featured vintage Paint By Number paintings as highly collectible (not that Country Home is at the forefront of trendsetting, but still...) My daughter has a wall in her bedroom devoted to vintage paintings and other artwork (like cross stitch and needlepoint) featuring animals. She has quite a few Paint-by-Numbers up there already. Last week I spotted this pair shown above at the Goodwill store. At $8.49 a piece, I thought they were a bit pricey, but anything for my daughter... When I got to the checkout, I realized one was missing the glass from the frame. Not really a deal breaker, but I pointed it out to the cashier. She said the $8.49 price tag must be wrong, managed to find a $2.99 on the edge of one frame (clearly peeled off from another item) and charged me $2.99 a piece. Thank you Goodwill! And Country Home editors, start reading my blog!
