I've been wanting a drink dispenser for some time now. It's perfect for outdoor entertaining. I was at the Pottery Barn Outlet earlier in the week and saw one there. Here are some options PB offers.
And you're wondering how much mine cost? $10.
Next on the list, this silver pitcher.
On the bottom it has engraved: Property of Midshipmen's Mes. How cool, seriously? The history lover in me wonders how many navy personnel were quenched by water from this same pitcher. What a find!
And what inspired me to purchase this pitcher (besides the engraving on the bottom) was a picture I saw on a blog this week from here. I needed another container to hold all my kitchen utensils. Cost: $12

I have a thing for birds. So I couldn't pass up this little cutie for a $1.50. I'm planning on spraying it white and putting it on my kitchen windowsill.
Again, this whale--too cute to pass up. Solid brass for $4
I'm enjoying the antler phase in decorating right now. Two antlers for $4.
And the total steal of the day: this albaster marble lamp. Yes, I have a lamp fetish that I thought I was getting over but apparently I'm not quite there yet. I could NOT have passed this one up though. It's an antique marble lamp that someone would pay hundreds for. I got it for...drumroll please...$5. Even when the seller saw it she couldn't believe the price on it. I absolutely love it. Ain't she purdy? Now I just need to find the perfect shade for it.
So there ya have it: my most recent treasures. Before I left to go shopping on Sat., I asked Mitch if he had any cash on him. I never carry cash and he normally doesn't either but surprisingly enough he pulled out a $20, handed it to me and said, "You don't have to spend it all unless you find something you love." Well I ended up spending that $20 and writing a check for $18. Hmm...well everything I got I love so it's all good, right?
