Me no likey gold...

I've never been a big fan of gold. Occasionally I don't mind a pop, but I MUCH prefer silver. Still, I can't pass up a deal so when I saw this at a garage sale, I knew I needed to pick it up.

Its HUGE!!!!!!!!!!! And check out the detailing, I just love it!

One more shot of that beautiful detailing:

Oh wait, whats that? A price tag, yep $1.50. Say WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT? So, she came home with me. I taped off her mirror and painted her white. Then I got busy with my glaze and made her "antique" looking. Ahhhhh, check out the detailing now...LOVEEEEEEE it!

But she was still missing something. Then it hit of those cute wall clings I got from the $ store!!!!

And here she is in all her glory:

So just to recap, for $2.50 I got this piece of amazingness!!!!!! And a positive message to glance at as I'm rushing out the door. I'm in love! :)
