I love garage sales; especially when I find a "score". I immediately picked up this framed picture ... basically for the frame but the photo has also been "growing" on me. Around the glass portion of the frame are metal type decorative brads which give the appearance of handsewing.... There are 3 that are missing but it just seems to add to the character of the piece. The wood is so old that it almost looks like worn leather and is a real deep burnt umber with burnt sienna highlights. The backing is a real rough wood and it still has the old time eye hooks with wire for hanging.
The cost .... $1.50.
I have added it to my framed picture collection.
