Friday, August 6, 2010 the Eye of the Beholder

You never know what you'll find at a flea market
estate sale,
or antique mall.

That, to me, is part of the excitement...
looking through boxes,
digging in drawers,
turning over old pages in a dusty book.

What to me holds magic,
can be discarded
by another.

But for just a few dollars
I made them mine.

We found these very old lithograph prints
last year in the back of a furniture booth.

Undoubtedly they had been hidden
in a dresser drawer
for many years.

When found, they were more of a bother than a treasure.

So there they were,
for a tiny fraction of their worth;
divine inspiration...

for me
to find,

Their age is showing...
foxing covers the fragile paper,
but they are timeless.

An unexpected gift
for me.

I'm joining in at the French Cupboard
for Vintage Black Friday.
