New Vintage Child Print & Flea Market Friday #2

Welcome to the 2nd Flea Market Friday Link Up Party!
I am so happy you are back again and get to enjoy all the wonderful shares!!
Today I am sharing this sweet vintage print I found at a local thrift store last week.
 I love this style of art and I keep finding this same looking sweet girl over and over in my treasures.  I love that she has a Raggedy Ann doll in her arms.  The colors were just perfect with lots of my favorite blue's and creams.

This one I would call a splurge... it was $20.  But it is a large canvas 18 by 24 inches... and even with the tears on the print, I think it adds character.  I have learned over the years that when something speaks to you... get it.  You just don't see things like this anymore, and most times when you do they are asking an arm and a leg for them.  So... for $20... I am a happy thrifter.

She is now hanging in the entry... ready to say hello to our visitors.

What else have I been up to this week?

And on Wednesday I shared my "Simple Country Statement Wall"

Hopefully you enjoyed all those posts this week!
I sure enjoyed all the entries in our first party.
I was sick all last week and felt like I did not get much social media done inviting people to see it.  I hope you can give me a link or shout out to have a few more entries this week.

Here are our very first features from last weeks party!!
