It's been pretty cold here in Orlando over the last six weeks or so and that's just how I like it! However, a lot of our lovely vegetation and flowers get brown or die off in the frost and I begin to miss seeing some bright blooms and greenery.
Imagine my delight when I went to our local, reliable thrift store last week and made a double score. As I came upon the item up on a shelf, I thought it was lovely, but didn't know exactly what it was. But it was handpainted and so pretty that I decided to get it nevertheless.
And it was only $2.00.
Today I was out with some friends and found a similar item and I asked them "what is this for do you think?" They replied it was used to store a cheese wheel. And of course I could see that right away after they said that. Turned it over and the price was $45.00! Now maybe mine wasn't an old one, but it looks old. Or maybe because it was altered with it's dainty paint job that it brought down the price. Doesn't matter to me, I like it!
What do YOU think?
