2nd Time Around Tuesday...



Well, it's my favorite post of the week again...2nd Time Around Tuesday...showing off a treasure that has been passed down to you from a flea market, garage sale, auction, a family member,etc.

I am thrilled to show my TREASURE that I have been "eyeing "for years at my mom's house...I think that every time that I've been at mom's I've asked if I could have this, of course the answer was always "NO"...but, I was there over the weekend and she actually asked me if I'd like to borrow it...but only if I helped her with her enclosed front porch-decor-moving some furniture...YES I WILL...did you even have to ask!!!??? Now let me ask you this, when your mother says you can borrow something, that usually means you can have it, right?!?! I thought so too...good...

Here it is...my(mom's) little boy picture with the flag...I love the colors, the subject and the overall size of the picture!! Love it, love it, love it!! I believe mom had bought this from an older lady's estate sale...

The only problem I have now is finding the absolute perfect place to hang my treasure...usually it only takes a few minutes for me to pick out a place and hang something...not this time...I love it so much that I'm making it harder than it is...oh well, I'm content to look at it leaning up against the furniture...thanks mom, you have really made me happy with this picture, and thanks for letting me borrow it for life!!! :) Love you.

Looks great! But borrowing is borrowing. I will someday have it back, I'm missing it already. Love, MOM

Hi Traci, That is a lovely picture, the little boy looks so innocent and adorable. I wonder how long borrowing time really is :)Hope you find the perfect spot.

Thanks for sharing!

First I love the picture...how sweet and innocent! A girl could get into a re-decorating frenzy with a new treasure like that...I find it VERY inspiring....
Big smile to Anonymous the first comment on your blog...hmmmm...How could you EVER return it if indeed it was from an ANONYMOUS person...Traci....I personally think you may consider...lol...it an ANONYMOUS donation! Oh...and PLEASE...a little MOTHERLY advice from me(old enough to be your Mom too)...be SURE to send the Anonymous donor a thank you card....lol your Mom would be so proud! ( Giggle...as if she isn't already!)

Yes.. everyone I am the anonymous commenter. Traci is tricky about getting what she wants. I distinctly remember saying she could borrow it. I don't quite know how that turned in to "giving". It may be worth a bunch of money and if it is.... it is definitely mine.
Love, MOM

I love the picture- such a cute little guy!

But I think mom has set us straight on the "borrowing" question:)

Happy 2ndTAT!
