My post today is about a thrifty vintage thingie wannabe.
It is neither a vintage thingie, nor was it a particularly thrifty buy. BUT - - - I hope it WILL be vintage one day, and since Fisherhubby gave it to me, it is priceless, so WHATEVER he paid for it WAS thrifty.
One Sunday a few years ago we stopped at the Christmas Open House at our friend's florist shoppe.

That's WHEN I fell in love with it.
And that's WHY I hinted quite openly to Fisherhubby that I would like it for Christmas.
