Animal Wednesday and Paint Bonanza

Happy Animal Wednesday from a flock of pelicans at Bodega Bay DH came home from the Thrift Store the other night carrying a caddy FULL to overflowing in acrylic paints and screen painting paints, paint brushes, an unused sketch book, container of silver glitter;Brand new watercolor pencil set and other odds and ends, a total of 50 plus paint containers some never opened...for a grand total of $5. The screen printing paints, which paint on fabric and paper, had an original price tag of $14.95 and are brand new!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW~ Am I a happy camper. Thank you DH! You are so thoughtful.
