..........and no not a touchdown.... lol But i scored with some after Holiday sales.... I have a 'thing' for Amarillos.... These, above were $1 each... They may or may not survive. They've spent too long in a box on a shelf.. but for a dollar i'll give it a go.. Meet 'Ferrari', 'Amigo', and 'Stargazer from left to right.. I may have 'Ferrari' and 'Amigo' mixed up but we'll figure it out if they survive and bloom..
I also have a 'thing' for Christmas Cactus'... they've been surprisingly easy for me to grow in the past... I had quite the collection in TX... I miss having them so i bought my first one this year... Its a peachy color..
Someone donated some Poinsettias to my place of work and after the Holidays i got to take two home.. They were really soggy wet when i got them... One is drying out nicely but the other is struggling.. I think i'm going to try replacing some of the dirt.. Hopefully that will help it dry out..
Now... THIS score literally had me on cloud 9 aaalll day! Now if your really into Christmas canvases on your wall then you could keep these as is... but if your me you see the 'possibilities'!! The larger one i paid $1.50 each.. i got 4.. I wish i could tell you the size.. maybe 11x16 and the smaller ones are 7x7 and i paid 80 cents each for them.. i got 4 of each size.. I could have got more but where would i put them.. ? Sand them down...some gesso and then i can paint whatever i want on them!!! Woot woot!!
And last but not least ... magnets!! I have a 'thing' for magnets on my frig... These are kinda cute as is...but i paid 30cents each for them and what a great substrate to put whatever i want on them.. and they already have the magnet on the back.. !!
