$1.00 Auction Purchase

Hi all!  I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend.

I had to share my latest on-line auction find with you.  I bought this cute pottery picnic basket for a whopping $1.00!  Delores at Vignette Design  has a picture of this basket in her header and I have always
loved it.

I still have to buy plants for the container but I was so excited I couldn't wait to show you.  In the meantime here is a picture and listing at FCL Style  for the same planter.  FCL Style is a sister company to Pierre Deux.

$85.00

Sherry

Sherry good for you improvising and saving yourself over eighty bucks on a 'like' item that you were able to replecate for a fraction of a retail cost! Creativity and improvisation are vital to Junquing Enthusiasts, high five!
