How does one be all Pottery Barn-y? They get a piece of coral and stick it on a bookshelf. (Right?) And if they really wanted to get all PB with it, they'd spraypaint it silver and do the faux mercury glass thing to it. I'm not going that far. But I did find a sea urchin for .50!
Plus an extra, um, "bonus" item that came with it...
I picked the thing up, and realized that the sea urchin was unattached to the base - it just sat on top. So I took ONLY the sea urchin and played dumb when I went to pay the lady.
Of course, she was like, "OH, THAT COMES WITH A LITTLE STAND...WAIT, LET ME FIND IT FOR YOU!" *Sigh.* If only I wasn't raised to be so polite. So home with the "I Love Grandpa" stand and urchin I went. Complete with a great set of unnecessary quotes:
|Like, it's not really from Shenandoah Caverns, Va...we're just going to call it that.|
Anyway, I like my sea urchin...the question is, do I leave it as-is (sans Grandpa stand), or do I spraypaint it white? I'm thinking as-is.
I also found some more pottery for my new & growing collection. I'm really drawn to these little cute pitchers and I pick them up whenever I see them. These little guys sit on my sewing table:
The other ones I've found here & there this summer, I've just been sticking them up on a shelf in my kitchen:
|Everything besides the 3 white pieces are things I've found just this summer.|
And then this weekend, I found this for $1, which I really like:
|Love the shamrocks|
|I just love that blue color inside|
Those are the kind of things I keep an eye out for...what are YOU drawn to?
