Wisteria Prints On The Cheap!

Happy Spring!
It actually snowed when we went home to Virginia a couple of weeks ago.   With snow on the ground it was hard for me to get into the mood for Spring decorating.  Also, time was limited and any major decorating had to take a back seat to other things. 
  
One of the small changes I made was switching out some prints in the foyer for a pair of botanicals.  You may remember these framed prints from a Wisteria catalog a couple of years ago.  I always liked the prints,  but not the almost $200 each price. 

Last Summer Steve and I made a trip to Destin, Florida to see family and enjoy the beach.  I found the botanicals at the local Goodwill and we left the store with both of the framed prints for a whopping $16.00!





I added a botanical to each side of the entrance to the living room.  Now, I am on a search
for two plates with green and red to replace the blue ones there now.



I moved the market basket to the foyer and you can see Steve's office in the background.


I am very happy with my Wisteria prints on the cheap.

What bargains have you found lately?

Hugs,
Sherry

It looks beautiful! You got the frames too?
We just bought a Sub Zero for $200! It's even paneled! I cannot recall the last thing I DIDN'T get a bargain on since I met Craigslist! LOL!

I love to look at little details in all the blog photos. I see your big clam sell off to the side on a table. I love that clam shell.

Those prints are beautiful -- love the way they're framed and the colors are stunning. I have several projects I just posted that I made over from thrifting trips and a whole box more to work on hopefully this weekend! So much fun!!

Hi Sherry,
I love botanicals but I don't own any. I am always on the lookout for affordable ones.
I love yours!

Oh, they are very nice and what a great price. It'll look great with the red plates, too! Good luck finding the perfect ones! Susan

Roxanne Reinhart said...

Wow Sherry that is indeed a major score. I am positive you will find the perfect plates to go above. I am still loving your big clam shell. Especially now with the great shells and coral and glass floats in it. I have to keep my eye out for some of those floats. They are beautiful. We had a snow storm here in Louisville KY on Sunday.
Speaking of Louisville - anyone watching the game right now? Go Cards!!! Lol

I rarely find bargains, but I am not patient at looking! I do miss Scott's in Atlanta. Great prints. Great price. xo

I look at those prints from Wisteria all the time, yours look beautiful framed Sherry!
My latest bargain was the burlap lampshades I found in Home Goods for $20 each! They look just like the ones in PB.

Your prints look wonderful! Oh, I also like the shell(I think I told you that before) and those eggs on the table. Everything looks great.

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

You really scored on that find Sherry. They are beautiful! I haven't had any luck at all with finding good things lately. Went to Class n Trash Saturday...nothing. Have a wonderful week and Easter.

What a bargain. We never find anything in our goodwill here. I love the print but the fact that they were framed,
WOW! thanks for hosting
