My Top Ten Favorite Finds of 2013 - #3

And yet again, I neglected to put any of my Christmas decorations put away...the thrifts were calling my name.   It was a glorious day!!!  Anyway, back to the countdown that is getting close to completion (thanks for playing along guys)!  Vintage Christmas ornaments started the list at #10, vintage Halloween decorations came in at #9, Franciscan Star Burst Mugs at  #8, my wonderful retro aluminum chairs landed on #7, some lovely vintage dresses came in at #6, my growing collection of vintage jewelry took spot #5, and some fun treasures from my Grandma made it in at #4 yesterday.  My next favorite find/acquisition of 2013 is...
#3 - Paint by Numbers Done by The Grandma
 My Grandma reads my blog because she's awesome and so she saw how much I like Paint by Numbers.  Long story short, (long story is here) she gave me these glorious works of art that she had done in the 60's while my Grandpa worked his second job.  Yeah, I'm so dang lucky even I can hardly stand myself!  : )  
Don't they look fabulous in my basement family room?!  One day I'm going to hang all that up and have the most fabulous gallery wall.  Hopefully I can get my crap together next year...
Do you have any big projects planned for the new year?  


  1. SHE painted these!?!?! That is a treasure!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Sweet! They're great, and the fact that your grandma painted them makes them awesome! How lucky for you that she saved them all these years.

  3. Those are great; especially love the bottom one. PBNs are easy to find here, but very few are good enough to display, LOL! Looks like your Grandma was pretty talented. I've been collecting them for a while too; need to do a post on them sometime!


Thanks for stopping by! Your advice, tips and comments are sincerely appreciated!!! I need all the help I can get...
