Fantastic Find!!

So, today is incredibly warm, 66 degrees, and incredibly wet.  It had been raining all morning and I was restless.  Did I mention that our internet wasn't working?  So I decided a trip to my favorite "last chance" Goodwill store was in order. I was feeling a bit let down, 'cuz I hadn't found a treasure, when suddenly, from the corner of my eye, I glimpsed just a bit of silvery gray and faded red.  There it was, tucked between a truly ugly end table, and a really beat up old easy chair, with few other pieces of junk tossed on top, was my TREASURE!
Can you believe it?  The price tag said $4.99, but remember, I'm in the "last chance" store, so that price is reduced by...that's right people, 85%.  With tax, this beauty cost me 79 cents!!  I'm so excited.  It's not perfect.  There is a grease stain on top, and the feet show some signs of deterioration, but come on!  Old barn wood is supposed to be beat up and stained, right?  I won't be using it in my house, anyway.  Oh no, this is Garden Junk.  For now, it will be part of my porch's Christmas decor and it will change beautifully with the Seasons!  


  1. Great score! Are we twins separated at birth? LOVE all I've seen here.... Well, one complaint - I can't find your cute coop linked from Homestead!? But being the warm Leo that I am, I forgive you and wish we'd been junkin' together at Goodwill (my indulgence yesterday)! I also heart the same links at Gardenweb. K, off to look 'round further. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. Cool bench, sista! I can't wait to see how you use it.

  3. What a great find! It'll be great in your garden!
