At the top is the frame, place mats and pink flower vase I found at the thrift shop on one of my last scrounging bouts. I find it is a way to quench my gathering instinct without damaging my checkbook too much. It is recycling too!

The Red Dress won 2nd place in it's category at the Vis Art show. There was a small cash prize that I may blow on the Wilmer community garage sale this morning.

A sunny spring day, some cash in hand, my honey driving the truck and some doesn't get much better!

I couldn't survive without thrift shops and yard sales; and yes, I love having things others loved - or overlooked.

Congratulations on the well-deserved prize.

Congratulations, Paula! I really love the feel of this painting--can't imagine how great the 1st prize painting must have been to have placed this second.

Oh, congratulations! Yep, sounds like a good day!

Congratulation Paula. I can see why you did so well - this is a beautiful painting! Love the composition and the patterns thriving among the figure. It is lovely.
