the art of the fleas

hi guys, ça va? i’ve been meaning to get here for what seems like days but they just have flown by. my clients left with armloads of treasures and i had my fun too.

looking back over the pics it seems that i’m in an artsy mood these days and am still smitten with the flea market art.

there’s a lot if it in every shape, price range, color and style.

i actually did get a few pieces (like the one above)

there a

and am going back for a couple more today.

as my guy says, you can’t buy it all so i hope you enjoy these as much as i did even if they’re not hanging over our mantles…yet!

have a great monday and i’ll be back a bit later with well, who knows what! À bientôt!

    I just adore these paintings! Especially loving the lady with the red hat & the last lady looking in the mirror. Some of the ladscapes are lovely too.

    Okay, NOW I’ve died and gone to heaven. These images of stacks and stacks of vintage oils have my heart racing. That first image speaks to me so much-It’s the look I’m trying to create in Amelia’s room and our kitchen–vintage artist’s loft. I have been searching everywhere for a vintage oil painter’s board-where the painter mixes the paint (I am at a loss for the right word) . I would love to borrow the first image in this post for my blog/pinterest if that is okay.
