A Portrait of Me with the Artist Himself!

When I arrived home from work Friday, my grandson was waiting for me with a big surprise! He was so proud when he unveiled it! I think it is a very good likeness, of me, don't you? Much too sweet of a lady to go dumpster diving!

Seriously, Joy and I went to an "outlet" store last week, it just happened to be a "thrifty" sort. I wouldn't call it dumpster diving. My family always called me "Miss Prim" and everyone knows I can't stand to get dirty or germy! Ugh. I believe the correct term is "bin." And, I don't dive, I just leaned over a lot. Joy finds the greatest treasures! She let me buy one of the lovely jewelry boxes she found, and some tablecloths too! I bought a bunch of children's books and a red cowboy hat too. I would post them here, but they need to be "sanitized" first. What do I mean by that? Oh, nothing. Just a little thing I do when I go "outlet" shopping at certain stores where the items may be gently used.


  1. You look just marvelous! What a great little artist you have on your hands!

  2. You are a reak trooper, I thought you were shaking with excitement not fear of germs... I hope you don't go with gloves and a face mask next time... all us veterans laugh at those who do...
    I wish we had seen Brock.
    Talk to you soon.

  3. I think I know where you are talking about and a friend and I have been talking about checking it out!! Is it the one on Portland Rd ???? The place you pay by the pound?!
    Well, hope your weekend is going good!

  4. Thank you for your comment on my blog! What a wonderful little imp your grandson is ~ his smile is soooooo infectious! And I love the portrait he made of you! A true 'keeper'!!!
