Don't you just love perfect fall weekends? Don't you just love perfect fall weekends where people take advantage of the cool, crisp weather and still have yard sales? Don't you just love when you're on your way somewhere and your significant other stops the car because your excited squeals have alerted him to said yard sales that are taking place down your very street?
What a fabulous thing to stumble upon! With fabulous pricing, to boot.
This heavy, large leaf candle holder thingy was a dollar!
Except in its current state, it was very reminiscent of the Jamaican bobsled team. Cool Runnings, anyone? I knew it would be a cinch to make it a little more gnarly and a little less Marley.
Oh come on, it's funny.
Seriously, this thing needed fall inspired natural looking color, instead of a clear line of Rasta demarcation.
Now that's what i'm talkin' bout.
A little gold, a little bronze, a lot more natural. Instead of a candle, i filled it with more corks and pine cones. And to really get a sense how large this is...
I have instructed the inspector to step into the shot at the perfect time. Well planned, mon, well planned.
Who else has tweaked a yard sale find?
