Antique Little Girl photo in Corvex Glass Frame

Here is a tutorial on avoiding cat fights in the thrift store in 2 easy steps:


1.  Let me have it.

2.  Walk away and forget you ever saw it. 

(Otherwise, there will be some major hair pullage)

Oh snap, she's kidding right?  Right? 
All humor and kidding aside, I would never, ever fight at a store or hurt someone and if someone is going to turn the other cheek, it will usually be me.  At the thrift store, it's usually me who sees beautiful antiques like this antique photograph with curved glass in someone's cart. 
I almost heart lept off the balcony into my stomach and I got the roller coaster ridin' adrenalin rush.  Weeeeeeee!  The thrift store was closing and the people there were none too happy with me.  They all but yelled at me to Get Out!!! 
I'M NOT LEAVING WITHOUT THIS ITEM, so chill out pretty peoples. 
I gave them my money and ran to the car to cuddle her.  I ran so fast, you might have thought I had stolen her.  I was too excited to walk calmly and keep my poker face.  She was icky dirty and needed a bath.  No.Problem.  *big cheesy grin*
I've wanted one of these since I was a little girl.  We had one with my great grandpa Braddock in it.  My mom (accidentally) broke it throwing a shoe down the hallway (my poor mother has the worst luck).  :(  Curved glass is rare and difficult to find. 
And by the way, don't ever ask me to take a photo of curved glass again.  This was a VERY hard thing to photograph.  Oy! 
Is it just me, or is Pooh smiling in this photo?  What a PUNK!! 

Get off my stuff Pooh, Mom's working!!

I totally agree, I will NEVER fight over an item at the thrift store. There's too much to go around for that mess.

Great score! And super price! I've never had to fight for a find, but I've had to tell people, "Yes, this is my basket of stuff..." :)
I know the feeling you mean...I found a sterling golf trophy from 1931 that was made into a lamp for $3.93. I felt like I was stealing or something - and couldn't wait to get out of the store! But I go there often...

Fight over an item. Never! I figure if you let go and allow the other person to have it something better will come along for you. My daughter also lives in Tampa. A misplaced Oklahoman who would love to move back home if it wasn't for her hubby enjoying himself in Florida! Love this post!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I don't fight over an item but I have been know to follow someone awhile in hopes they will put it down! LOL...LOVE this and you are so lucky to find at a thrift store! Oh wow oh wow! Happy for you. Love your cat by the way!
hugs, Linda

Adore this post. Oh my gosh, I love her too. Her sweet face is so melancholy - looks like an old soul lives within. Love the frame and curved glass, woohoo!

Happy New Year to you!

Hello! I'm Keetha and I'm coming over for VTT. It's been a long time since I played, so I don't believe we know each other - - - until NOW!

Your vintage framed photo made me think of one of my maternal grandmother when she was a girl. I believe my sister is going to get the original, but I hope to get a copy made for ME TOO!!!

If you want to see it, just click here - - - it will melt your heart if you love old pictures:

You definitely found a very vintage frame. The store should have been happy you bought something. People do not care anymore. I have some of my long gone families in frames like this. I am almost afraid to touch them.

I love these curved glass pictures too. I only have one though. I call her my adopted grandma. My mother brought it some time ago from a thrift store and she hangs among my real grandmas. take care, Darlene

How lucky you were to find such a wonderful treasure. I remember there was a frame like this at my grandfathers home. Who knows what happened to it. I think it held a familiy picture.

AllyJo said...

Thank you all for sharing and celebrating my find with me. She's pretty special. :)

Donna Heber said...

Enjoy your new treasure! My mother use to have a photograph of her grandmother in a curved frame like yours. Your kitty Pooh is so adorable! I’m co-hosting with Katherine this week at Thursday Favorite Things and hope you will stop by for a visit. Wishing you all the best in 2013.
