pretty lady with shawl

i was struck with the wonderful colors in this picture. her shawl and the background are so pretty. i don't know if this thrift store purchase was a deal or not - i think i remember that it cost more than i usually spend (like $10 to $12?). but i like it and if i don't find a place for it, it will go on the garage sale this spring.

It's a beautiful image. She is so graceful and pretty in her shawl. I vote that she should not be part of the garage sale!! :)
I meant to tell you in the last post that dried flowers can be preserved by applying a glaze on them. Have you heard of that? I haven't done it myself, but I've seen it done. It keeps them from crumbling. Just in case there were ever some flowers that you really didn't want to part with.
