*Linking to Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home:

Can I just tell you I had one of those 'this has to be too good to be true' moments yesterday? We were just coming back from walking our two dogs when I told my husband I wanted to just run through a garage sale just down our street because you just never know what you might find. So I'm strolling through all the knick knacks, old books, used golf balls, and glance up to see some random prints for sale. Well, I just about lost my breath when I saw this vintage, limited edition (retired), hand signed & numbered print entitled, "Cousins" by none other than N. A. Noel! I didn't want anyone to notice my excitement, as I almost ran from the garage to get some cash from home...thankfully when I returned a few minutes later, it was still there. True, I felt a little guilty considering how little they were asking for this print, but for whatever reason the owner was letting it go. It's so rare these days to find such incredible items, or at least before all the scavengers get there...so this was my moment of true victory! I do love this artist's work, and have contemplated keeping it, but for now it's available in my store on etsy.
