The other day I made a quick run to one of my local thrift stores.
I almost talked myself out of going, but it had been a little while since I'd hit that particular one, so I went.
As often happens to me, when I started looking around the first thing I found was something that I believe was placed there for me alone to discover.
Tina has a couple of them, and I have always admired them:
In fact, every single year, I purchase one of the Alphonse Mucha
The lovely image below just happens to be featured for September:

Ah, but it is - and deservedly so:
Finally, a tin of my own, and at the best price ever.
Just sitting there at the thrift store waiting for me.
They didn't know that it should have probably been in their "special" area instead of out on the floor with everything else.
The people there did not think it was special - but I do.
exhibit at the Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock, California!
Turlock is only about 55 miles from here, and you can bet that I am going to do my very best to make it down there to see that exhibit!
As a matter of fact, I'm pretty excited about it.
