Friday Goodwill Find: Deja vu

Dear Blogging Friends

Have you ever experienced "Deja vu"?  This is a French word meaning already seen or a feeling of recollection!  I had the opportunity to leave work early Monday and made a random stop by Goodwill and take a look at what they had just brought out and was still behind the counter.  My heart skipped a beat.  You see I saw this same painting in an antique store several years ago across town and feel in love but there was no price on the painting and the stores prices were out of my price point really just looking so I was sure I couldn't afford her.  Deja vu, but in Goodwill!  The name of the painting is "The Sound of Music" by Joanne Pemberton Longman.  I brought out a few of my gold clocks, what's wrong with a little gold and The Sound of Music!

Thanks for stopping by to see my finds and creations......

  6. Lovely. Did you know that here in Denver we have a regular Goodwill store and a "designer" Goodwill and it's called (are you ready for this?) Deja vu?

  7. I'm so glad you found her! If she was hanging on my wall, I think I'd spend way too much time just looking at that gorgeous dress and the way the fabric drapes.

  15. I have that exact picture, had it for 20 years and paid $250.00 for it. I love it. It is called the Sound of Music. I recently chalk painted the frame white and hung over my bed. It has been in various rooms in my house. Hope you love it as much as I do.

  18. Stunning Debbie! Funny story, when my son was little he used to mispronounce the word "Deva ju!" To this day, I can't hear the word without feeling amused ;) Thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm!
