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.
