Dirty little secrets

You know we all have one
(or a few).

When it first happened
I felt like this.

Then like this.

I found this while shopping
when we visited our
son last week.
For $12.99  it became mine.

I wrapped it in LOTS of tissue paper
and placed it in a sack
and held it as we drove
from Georgia to Louisiana.

Then it happened -
I dropped the lid as I was
placing my "find" onto the mantle.

Boo Hoo!

Now here's the secret -

If I place the lid
"just so"
(facing the back)

it looks PERFECT
and no one would ever know
if we don't tell them.

Genius! No one will ever know. Hmmm, I guess that's why they are called secrets. It looks great!

Oh, I know the feeling! I have done that so many times....I'm klutzy that way. (I must learn to slow down!) But you came up with a great solution and it looks really good. Keep you eye out at garage sales and ebay for replacement lid. There's always one out there somewhere.

FABulous!!! I can't even tell in the picture. AND...I must confess...I LOVE what you did with it. Sand, seashells....Beautiful!!! I must run out and pick me up this for my house. Ya know, since I DO love the tropics!! AND...I know exactly where to get that lovely inexpensive find as well ;O) I saw it at a store (Home Goods) and gasped when I saw it and the price and just HAD to have it. Then my husband said "Not now" :o( *hmph* WHAT. EVER!

Wouldn't you know you would've made it all that way just to be a klutz putting it on the mantle!
Looks great...I'd never have known!

You're smarter than the average bear! And I'll bet more people do this than would like to admit.
