G is for Gold, gravy boat and garden toad - A to Z Writing Challenge topic

Gold is the ultimate treasure-hunter’s dream.  I can boast of one thrift shop find pin in recent years made of 14k gold.

And gravy boat - the story on this sweetie is I had a gravy boat, a fancy pure white one I bought at Macy's for $15 or $20.  When I bought it at retail price, I thought, "What am I doing?  I can find one of these at the thrift shop."

To a thrifter's eyes, the rubbed off decoration shows character, that it has been well used.  Worth the 50 cent price I paid for it.

Just HAD TO share garden toad. I think he is adorable. I was preparing the vegetable garden bed and there he was. I admit to moving him to the flower garden and staging him by the toadstool.  He seemed to tolerate his brief modeling stint.
