Looks Can Be Deceiving

Unlike Miss Rhoda at Southern Hospitality, my area didn't have much going on in the yard sale department this past weekend. Luckily, I went to Salvation Army earlier last week to drop off a donation, and look what I came home with!

Tall and shapely

Or is it?

Looks can be deceiving, huh? For some reason, I really liked the shape of this neat pottery piece. It's actually pretty large, and was originally priced at $23.99. I got it for $4.

It matches the color scheme I have in the addition, but it would also go well in the Living room. I have a cabinet with some "rustic" stuff in that room...a wooden antique level that belonged to T's grandfather, as well as two of his very old whittling knives.

I had another fabulous find, but I'll have to wait to show it to you because I found it as a surprise for someone who I know reads this blog! I'll do a reveal here after I do the *big* reveal in person.

That's all I have today, folks. I am pretty bummed about it! BUT if you check back in tomorrow (Monday) morning, I'll have some neat photos of the (thrifty, delicious, interesting?) fun we had on the 4th!
{Happy Thrifting!}
