And for now all is well! I snatched up this owl bank as soon as I laid my eyes on it. Isn't he gorgeous! And the paint by number goes with him just perfectly. Can you see some of my favorite colors? l o v e i t.
I keep the painting and bank together in my sewing room. Sitting just like this, the bank in front of the painting. I even love adding a bit of change every now and then. Maybe I can save enough for a fabulous trip! Maybe my sisters would come with me...
And here is the funny thing I like to do. Keep the price tag on! I like going back later to the things around my home to see the great deal I made. Just $2 for this little sweetie. The price makes it so much more special!
This is the back of the painting. I know it's a little hard to read, but it says To Grandma and Grandpa, Love Ryan. 1984. Sweet Ryan, giving his grandparents something a little handmade. I love your work Ryan!
