My Apothecary FIND!

A few months ago my friend Shellee asked me to out junkin with her
and I told her I had to think about it.
HA! Did you just believe that?
C'mon...it took me like ..001 seconds to say
Are you drivin or me?
Turns out she drove. It would work out that way because I proceeded to find this:An old chippy white apothecary!
She saw it first and told me about it.
Good grief I passed out right there on an old barca-lounger and had to be revived with moth balls!
Almost.
I did get all tingly though and there was another lady trying to make up her mind about it then she asks MY opinion! I told her I thought it was kinda big.
I didn't lie...it is kinda big.
Big and beautiful and chippy and the list goes on.
Apparently that was a negative for her cuz she passed and I think I literally swooped in and paid for it in even less time than it took for me to tell Shellee I was comin along!
Sooo...cuz she drove, Mr. OTM and I had to go back and pick it up.
No problemo~ it was totally worth financing a tank of gas to get back there!!
Right now it's at the shop with a big NFS sticker on it. It's going to be in my craft/computer/office/spare bedroom soon!
I promise to post pics.
P.S. To see my "C" List favs~ head on over to
