Just wanted to show you the tole Christmas tray I got at the thrift store on the Friday before Christmas. It's probably not the fabulously beautiful and wonderful bargain you all were expecting after my somewhat impassioned ode to my thrift store yesterday, but who could pass this up at 75% off? Besides, I think it's kind of cute and funky. They had it priced at $90. (yikes!) but with the discount, it was $23. -- still way more than I normally spend at the thrift store, but something about it just called out to me.
Just a little Christmas present for me, from me.
I had actually picked it up and put it back down when I was in the store, but I later called to tell my dear friend, Robin, about the sale, and thought better of it. She was kind enough to pick it up for me when she went to shop.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. After a few days off, I'm slowly starting to get back to blogging. I got a new camera for Christmas, so as soon as I get the hang of using it, I will hopefully have some great new pictures for you. I feel strangely bereft of subjects without Christmas to blog about, but I'm sure inspiration will strike at some point...
And don't forget -- if you haven't already done so, please take a moment to leave a comment on my December 22nd post, to enter the giveaway. I will draw a winning name tomorrow morning. I'm starting to get excited to see who the winner will be!
