Yep, I found another red number 3 and this one is a doozy! (Is that how you spell doozy?)
We needed a little break this past weekend from some pretty tough things going on around here
(I've been thinking about sharing what's happened but it's been a difficult one to write).
So, we went to the Round Top Winter Antiques Show to have a look around.
It was a great break from things. There were the amazing (AMAZING) things usually found there
but not the usual overwhelming crowds. I could have spent a fortune.
I did find that great big red 3 I mentioned.
It's porcelain and has the huge bolts that stick out of the back since it was part of a sign.
Those bolts were almost 3 inches long. We discussed how we could hang it
or how we could cut the bolts off...and then how would we hang it. Not sure what I wanted to do,
I went to set it on the table and guess what I discovered?
The bolts make the perfect stand to hold the 3 up.
Who needs to hang it when it comes with its own built-in stand?
It's about a foot tall.
(I got that little bowling pin there too.)
For now it's on my mantle but I'm not sure I'm leaving it there.
Everywhere I set it, it looks good so I can't decide where it will live.
I got it for $15 bucks. Some of the similar ones were going for about $40.
That's a good enough deal for me.
