my vintage collection: watercolor paintings

This stack of watercolor paintings was actually a surprise instant collection I got from an auction not too long ago. Surprise because I didn’t even know I won them until the next day when I unloaded the van and did the inspection. They were tucked on the bottom of large Rubbermaid plastic tote that has few old magazines and a couple of old glass door knobs I had my eyes on and was sitting on the silent auction table.  No one was interested on the plastic tote apparently because I was the only bidder.  I love this kinds of surprises!

Here are a few of my favorites;

  3. You have so many lovely vintage collections :) I have a very small vintage sketch collection - I guess it's the kind of art I'm drawn to

  4. They're gorgeous, I've never been to an auction, think it would be fun but dangerous, I could get carried away bidding!

  5. What a terrific surprise! I love the lady by the river. I got a few bolts of free fabric last year on the last day of what had been a week long giveaway. Tucked inside one were a number of pieces of interesting vintage fabric. I think it was passed over b/c the outer fabric wasn't very pretty. A customer used one of the vintage pieces as a wall hanging. I love when that kind of thing happens.
