Yard Sale Find.

Singular.  As in one find.  Sometimes it's just not about quantity.  I would rather come home with one purchase that makes me happy than load my house down with tons of stuff that I could do without.  And that is exactly what I did this week.  I passed on many, many things that I didn't really need or want and brought home my one little treasure.
Pretty cool, right?  I think it will be gorgeous this summer filled with blooms picked from my yard.  Or maybe as a pencil holder on my desk.....?
 Grand total spent this weekend : $1.

I've been taking fewer and fewer things home lately, but I really love the things I do find. Like you said, it's all about being happy with what you have!

random thought...I saw an episode of aniques roadshow once, and they were about this type of item if I remember correctly they are called "frogs" and were meant to be vases...but unless its a recently made item, you might look into having it appraised as it might be worth money:) But I have no idea, I just remember the episode and wishing I would find one at a garage sale:)

Thanks everyone! Y'all made me feel better about my one little find :)

Astarterhouse - I never would have thought of that! I checked it for markings, but all it has is tiny little numbers on the bottom of each vase. Hmmm....I will have to look into it some more. Thanks!

This is awesome! Can you tell if it was made this way or if someone crafted it? Either way its super cool.
