Texas Under Glass

Please be gentle...
this is my first post at your weekly party!
I may be "tardy to the party"...
but I am here now!

Recently, when my husband was released
from a lengthy hospital stay,
we spent a week at my son and
daughter-in-law's house recuperating!

I wanted to say thanks to them
for being hospitable,
but had no art supplies or craft items.
So what's a girl to do?

A quick trip to the Goodwill store
brightened my day with the $2.99
price tag on this!


Then a quick trip to the Dollar Store
provided me with these supplies.


Hobby Lobby had these on sale
for half price...

along with these half price goodies!


Here is the finished product!
My son is a Texas History teacher
so I created this to go with his
Texas art wall.

I named the creation
"Texas Under Glass"
because I was inspired by
the wildlife in the Texas desert
that we called home for many years.

My son, on the other hand,
calls this nature scene
"Sparrowarium".

I like that.

Thanks for including me in your party!

Now that's what I call being quite creative and thrifty at the same time. We creative types will go to any length to get our fix. LOL!

I like your Texas under Glass, it's really great.
