one of my personal treasure finds


I wanted to share with you one of my very favorite "finds". I found this piece in Moss Landing CA about 20 years ago at an antique store. I got lucky and purchased this for 12.00. Its done on a porcelain tile stamped KPM on the back. I have no clue as to its age. Artist signature Lillian Walls. I did a google and found no information about this artist. I did however, find quite a few porcelain tile artists dating way back.
I adore this painting and I hate that I have it packed away. Someday, when my walls are not made out of ROCK I can hang this and enjoy it like I used too.
Anybody else have a found treasure that is so wonderful they can hardly stand it? Post it!

Great treasure you found !!! I've used those new 3M strips to hang pictures and they are removable.

The fact that you love it still as much as when you found it shows what a great piece it is. I have one painting I feel that way about. Someday, I will show you. Happy Creating~

Janell-- those strips I was talking about are called 3M Command Strips and I get them at Target or Wal-mart.

Great suggestion Marie but I think it still would not work. My walls are actual rocks. I am just keeping my paintings and wall hangings in a safe place. There they wait for our next "move". :)
