Soooooo Low Rent -- LMAO

Hey y'all!  My friends and family know that my fav thing in life is to laugh--even at my own expense.

Do y'all remember this?
It is the 'urn' that I found at the Durham Rescue Mission. It was exactly what I was looking for and I thought I had really scored.  I carefully arranged 3 asparagus ferns in it. I was thrilled at how great it looked as a centerpiece in the dining room!

Wrong-y Dong-y....

Look what I stumbled upon today on Craigslist!

Craigslist -  Raleigh
Holy Moly!  It is a  freakin' Trash Can

I'm not known as a 'custom' stager for nuthin'. 

.....wonder what magic I could work with the tissue holder  :)

    1. Oh Patty, you make me feel better. All I could think after laughing over my faux pas, was "what if someone recognizes it as a trash can!".

    1. Yes, Gina! It really does "do"!. I was so excited that it had the tarnished brass that worked with the picture frames and related to the brass chandelier. I just have to poke fun at myself--instead of acting like I'm 'all that'. Ya know?

  3. I think it's the ugly duckling (trash can) that turned into a swan (urn). It transformed under your tutelage!! Well done.

    1. Sherri, I feel like such a dumbass. I would die if someone walked into that beautiful home and thought "hmmmm....interesting to use a trash can as a centerpiece". I swear, it NEVER crossed my mind! I thought it was PERFECT!
