Thrift Store Finds


This Monday, I had good luck at a local thrift store.  I found 5x7 frames for pictures I cut out of "Photographic Surrealism."  Some of the older frames needed a little help to hang, but for 49cents on 25% off Monday?  I can handle that.

This is my favorite guy.  The photographer's named Meatyard, so I'll assume he's French instead of pronounced 'meat yard'.

Another find was in their small crafts section: a pre-cut mat in the shape of a duck.

But it gets better?  The cross-stitch pattern it came with:
