I found it!

I have finally found the print I have been in search of for years. My friend inherited a copy from her Grandma and I have coveted it ever since. I even took a picture of it and use it online for my business and avatars and such. To me it is the ideal 1940s floral print. I really thought that with the amount of swap meets, estate sales, antique shops, etc. that I go to I would find another much quicker than I did.

I just happened to look behind me and saw it sitting on a table at a booth I had already looked at. I remembered that when I looked at the booth before a woman was standing there with a pile of stuff on it so I totally missed it! I was seriously freaking out at this point, wondering how much it was marked and if I could get there in time before someone else grabbed it as a fence separated us. I tried to hop the fence but that didn't work out so well. The print was marked at a mere $12 (I think I would have paid anything at this point). I offered the guy $10 and he took it! Then of course I gushed about how long I had been looking for it and how happy I was and he looked at me like I was insane. I'm just thrilled to have finally found it!

  1. That would be a beautiful tattoo. I'm too chicken to get one, but I'm enamored of tattoos. Do it!
