Here's an awesome find!
Recently, while on my lunch break, I decided to stop by a garage sale that I saw as I drove through a neighborhood. I only found this one item, but it was just too pretty to pass up...
This looks like an old vase/crock of some sort that someone has hand painted...

On one side is a medley of flowers...in fact, it kind of looks to me like the artist/crafter was going for a wildflowers theme. The background is full of bluebonnets (the state flower of Texas).

And on the other side is a large closeup of a bluebonnet.

On the last rainy weekend we had at the farm, we found a place for it. It's now on the end table next to the couch...where we have the colorful afghan that we found at a thrift store a while back. The hardest part was deciding which side of the little vase to showcase. I suppose we could turn it around on occasion and have a 'new vase' each time, ha. The best part is that we are glad we saved someone else's hard work to be enjoyed for more years to come.
Phew, the weekend is here. Hope you have big plans. Ours involve checking the house for pests. As means of an update, 2nd Family has checked the trap twice a day, every day this week and nothing...hopefully it will stay that way.
