Virginia Homestead on Pink Saturday!

This beautiful rendition of a Virginia Homestead was created by artist Anthony Thieme in the 1920's. It is from the 1930's Art Scrapbook I discovered last fall in a favorite antique mall. All of the works in this book were collected, cut and pasted into a scrapbook by a long ago young lady in the early 1930's. She certainly was a lover of the arts of her day! And they have stood the test of time!

  12. What a precious find. It's neat to meet a kindred spirit from a bygone era. I didn't even know people kept art scrapbooks. The picture makes me a little homesick.

  22. Hi Coralie, How beautiful the painting is and romantic as well. A book of paintings is a wonderful find. Maybe you can frame some of them. Keep sharing them with us.

    It is nice to visit you again. My time for visiting my blogging friends is always limited these days. I do enjoy visiting your blog very much.

    Have a wonderful week.
    Hugs, Jeanne
