Thrifted Thursday – Vintage Florals
As I mentioned a few posts ago, I recently bought a new home. Best thing about buying a new home? Shopping for and decorating it! While I have already collected quite a bit of mid century housewares, my new-to-me 1954 suburban ranch needed new vintage accessories to make it look prettier.
On a fluke visit to one of my old favorite thrift stores I scored this spectacular vintage floral painting. Signed J. Lopin ’67, this 4.5 foot painting caught my eye from across the store. I haven’t been able to find any information on the painter, but if you know something, lemme know!
Isn’t it gorgeous?
I rarely find good pieces of art at thrift stores. I think I have picked up less than five pieces including paintings and prints. This gigantic work of art (it’s almost as tall as me) meets all my vintage aesthetic needs: florals, abstract, mid century. Check, check, and check.
I was so inspired by my painting that I snapped some pictures of the flowers in my garden. The previous owner’s daughter told me that her mother was a close friend of a famous local nursery owner so she was gifted some rare hybrids of roses. I feel so lucky to have found a home with only one previous owner! She loved her home. I hope she loves the new painting!
Have you thrifted anything fabulous lately?
