Shabby Vintage Plaque.

Good Monday Everyone!
While I was blog-surfing last week I found a blogger who had a vintage plaque like one I had. I told her that I would post pics of my plaque. Her name is Tammy. This is her blog
 I just peeked on her this morning and she has shabbied up a couple of chandeliers and a mirror. THEY ARE DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!!! Go and take a peek!!
So here are the pics.
You can click on the pic to have it enlarge and then you can click again on the pic and zoom in for a closer look and see.

I bought this at a local Salvation Army Store in July 2005. It still had the $3.00 price tag on the back!! Poor thing; it had been sitting beneath an end table in the livingroom. I had not taken an opportunity to hang it yet!
I have just hung it on the porch where the light is brightest right now. Do you see how the profile is 3-d?
Monsieur Gentleman has a chip to his curly locks, but Madame Lady is all there as is the rest of the plaque.
Aren't her gown and bonnet pretty? I just love the pink, green, off white colours.
                                                                           Here is another side-view.            I spent another two days cleaning out the garage   and mini barn. OMG what a chore! But I can see daylight now!! I'll post on that later this week. Do you feel autumn in the air?
                                    Warm hugs, Laura

  3. It is beautiful sweetie!!!! I love the colors!!!!!!!! Lucky girl, you do not have to paint!!!!!! I am glad mine made you pull yours out though because it is much too pretty to be hiding ;O)!!!!! You are so sweet to mention my blog.. ty so much hun!!! You have a new friend for life ;O)!!!!!!!!! "giggle"!!! Oh one other funny thing, I chipped my guy in the very same spot yours! When I picked the plaque up "Goodwill" from under a bunch of other things it chipped a small piece from his!!! We really do have a lot in common I think, I just got done working with my hubby to clean out my junk shack too.... oh my what a crazy mess that was, we purchased this house last Sept. and due to the closing being changed on us 3 times when I moved I had to be moved in a couple days so all my JUNK was shoved into my work room above the garage and of course i have just continued to collect more!!! I could definitely have my own little!! My neighbors came over because they thought I was having a garage!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!!!!! Hugs to you sweetie!!! Tammy
