Well, right or wrong, I did just that while out for my walk tonight. I was walking along on my usual route and just happened to notice something off to the side of a driveway......
at first it looked like a fish shaped terra cotta pot that someone had painted....on a second look it seemed someone had made it into an umbrella stand.
I knocked on the door and asked the woman who answered if she would be interested in selling the terra cotta pot....she said she wasn't using it and if she could get a couple of dollars for it she'd be happy! I told her I would be right back with my wallet....she said take it with you now and the next time you walk by drop off the $2.00. I took it home, it sure was heavy, but brought her back the money right away!
I will use it with my new.........
I picked it up at Cost Plus this past weekend, on sale and a 10% off coupon.
I will spend the weekend working in the backyard and moving umbrellas around!
