more about this sweet sticky tape later...
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you've got something nice lined up to celebrate the beginning of the weekend... just remember nice doesn't have to be fancy (although fancy is good) it's wet and cold here in Perth at the moment so nice for me will be staying warm, watching The Block (can't help myself) and Escape to the Country on telly while drinking a gass of wine or two...B-O-R-I-N-G I know, but I quite like boring sometimes...
Now here's a little story for you...I'm calling it The Tale of Two Vases...
There's been a bit of discussion on this blog about over-pricing in op-shops (thrift stores/charity shops). Yep things in most op-shops are definetely getting pricier...have you noticed this too? Usually I put things straight back on the shelf I picked them up from if I think they're too pricey...
(remember Daryl Kerrigan's quote in the movie The Castle? "tell him he's dreaming" well that's me)
(just in case you're not from Australia and might like to check out the movie...)
But a few days ago my resolve wasn't as strong as it usually is...I "fell in love" (slight exaggertion) with a vase that I couldn't resist and I paid top dollar...$19.95 for it. A few days earlier I bought another vase which I like almost as much, but this one cost just $1.00
Here are the vases...
(in no particular order)
I thought it would be interesting to see which vase you think is the pricey one and also, the one you like the most...please leave a comment and I'll do a big reveal in the next day or so. I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on this...
Do you stick to a budget when you're op-shopping? Or not?
I am definetely not doing a good job of K.I.S.S today but before I finish I want to show you the very lovely pressie sweet Micaela (that's where the pretty sticky tape comes from) sent me all the way from Texas
