I Need Your Help

My Mom had a picture hanging in her bathroom. It has hung there for years and is in fact still there. I will inherit in the end, but I would like to find a copy of this picture for now. It is the picture you see below. It is not a really good picture of it though. It is a small child sitting on a chamber pot. The entire picture is in sepia tones, but the chamber pot is a sort of blue. It says "Efforts" at the bottom. If any of you run across one of these that is for sale, PLEASE let me know. I have looked everywhere, even on line. Thanks for any help you give!!!

LOL! Is this for a bathroom redecoration? :-D Have you tried AllPosters? (I don't know the exact URL...)

Thank you Lady_MSnow I had tried to view your link by copying and pasting but I always got an error page so I did a search

Well, I have searched ebay and all the art sights and never found it. Here you find it and the auction is over. No one bid, so I am going to write to him and see if he will sell it to me. THanks a bunch!!!

We use to have one of those but for some reason I thought it was a picture of my daddy when he was a boy...I've got to call my Mama now!!

If you really like it couldn't you get it and take it to a store and have a copy made? I have seen a few of these through the year but they were usually at flea markets or yard sales. Hope you can find one somehow. PS I have read your blog for years and love the way you live, we are very similar I think. Jeanna
