Okay. I’m new to consignment shop…shopping. You bloggers out there are frugal, and I am hooked thanks to all the finds you’ve…uh…found! However, I’ve been very frustrated because I’ve gone to several with absolutely no luck–until yesterday! Notice my little treasure trove below.
As I was picking up each item and stacking it in my arms (no cart…no luck, remember?), I kept thinking, “This just looks like junk!”. The large, silver urns were $2.99 (expensive, I thought, but I needed them–needed…that’s funny), and the rest was .99 cents. Ugly lattice sconce with gold trim? How ’bout cute little lattice sconce with ribbon adorned pear? Awwww….
I really like it. It deserves two pictures.
I finally took the plunge and bought a cloche that’s not really a cloche to put over a bird’s nest. I took the picture on my kitchen table because I have absolutely no idea where to put it. It really doesn’t have a good home yet, but I’ll find one. By the way, the bird’s nest came in a package of 6. It was originally marked $24.00 from Smith and Hawken, but I paid $4.00. Hee. Hee.
Next, I painted the silver urns and went to make an arrangement in it. Low and behold, I had no floral foam stuff! What else to do? Go shopping in my basement! I bought this…uh…thing last year knowing I was going to save it from its misery. So, it goes from this…
Sure, it’s a little early for fall, but when fall actually GETS here, I don’t have time to do this stuff! It’s all very half-a@@ done. If you touch it, it’ll fall apart like the Griswald’s turkey, but it’ll do for now!
I threw in my little pumpkin nest because I love it. The color of the feathers looks off because my camera was made in hell. It’s oh-so-cute, and the feathers are a warm, beige color. I feel like this was a long post. If nothing else, I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I’ll have more soon!
