Multifaceted Lady

I have a growing collection of intriguing lady portraits, and just acquired this print for $8 from Value Village. I adore the 1900 to 1930s styling of it, the beauty of the woman, the rich colours, and the faceted gold frame splashed with the colours of her dress.

Ceylon Tin

I picked up a new tin for the collection! $0.25 at the local thrift store, of course. Can we just take a moment to appreciate the kelly green and laurel details? I love this example of contemporary packaging done beautifully!
