Thrifting Again

The weather here has been pretty dreary today with rain and no sun. Not the greatest day to take pics but... I absolutely could not wait to share some of what I found at the Thrift Store today. I had an appointment at the hairdresser this morning so I figured as long as I was out in the rain I might as well stop by my local thrift store. If you didn't see what I found Saturday you need to take a look, it was an awesome score. Naturally I thought today would not stand up to the excitement on Saturday. Boy was I wrong!
Keep in mind the lighting is awful, but check this beauty out. 

This is a larger pic.. I have not measured it yet.. what attracted me to it was the frame and bonus the colors are the same as my room redo.. Aren't those rich looking colors?
The frame is a plastic type of material.. I knew it was older, because I just bought "Pinkie" and "Blue Boy" off eBay in a small frame out of the same material and they were made in the 50's. Here is a closer view.



I just love it.. isn't it beautiful? Such lovely spring looking flowers. 
See the signature? Marion Rice, an American Artist born in 1901. It is a litho.. not real but, I love it just the same.
So should I paint the frame and glaze it? I am not really liking gold these days, but..not sure if I should tamper with it. I would love to have your advice .. It would be gorgeous painted the color of the vase w/ a stain..it would really make the details pop. Hmmmm
I did have some more great finds today but the pics turned out terrible. I also got some stuff for Mom's house, she is wanting a redo.. When the weather breaks I will be getting some pics of the rest of my junk treasures and the stuff I got for Mom.
Thanks so much for stopping by.. I am loving your comments, stories and advice.. I love
learning about you guys.

I love your' new to you' picture as well. The colors are so rich and vibrant. I could see this looking amazing as part of a gallery wall. I know white sometimes seems like the default color choice when it comes to frames, but I think white could look beautiful in this case. Whatever you choose I know it will be beautiful.

Hi Beverly, What a great find! The colors are beautiful and the frame is very pretty. I think the frame would be wonderful painted white and then lightly glazed. Thanks for sharing this at my Open House party.
Hugs,
Sherry
