2009 Yoakum County Art Show

This past week we had our Yoakum County Art Show, and this little miniature painting, won a first place. The idea came from being in a little shop in Lubbock, TX that is now closed. She had all kinds of chairs with flowers in them. Some had the seats taken out and flowers planted down in a formed pot, made from wire, moss and potting soil. They are really neat sitting on the patio or porch. The chair on my porch, is the one my daughter made for me last year. It needs some brighter colored flowers! I have a problem with wind, and some of the brighter ones didn't make it!
