I don't like a "naked" toilet tank top but I also don't like anything "fiddly" on it either. Something that makes a "statement" but is easy to move it you have to!!!!
Plants are a good solution, but . . . you have to have something pretty to put them in.
At either a Garage Sale or an Estate Sale a couple of years ago, I found this planter -- for, I think, $5. It was unusual, a good size for a toilet top and my beloved blue and white. And it does work and work well!
I thought it perhaps was a piece of new "China" merchandise that was, perhaps, bought at Hobby Lobby. But "provenance" doesn't necessarily mean everything to me -- especially for something that I'm going to plop a plant in and put on a toilet tank!
And then when we were in England . . .
We went to Woburn Abbey. Besides a lovely "house" to tour, they also had an Antique Center on their grounds. Full of the most wonderful treasures (and yes, I did bring something home from there!)
But . . the first room, I went in, I found this --
I've not ever seen another and thought it interesting that the second one I would find would be in an Antiques Center in England!
Inside was this explanation of the piece. Interesting, I thought -- way older than I thought!
And then I turned the tag over and . . .
I was stunned at the price -- 495 pounds or $800. For the piece I paid $5 at an Estate/Garage Sale and keep a plant in!!!!
You be the judge -- is it the same or not? I think it is a twin. Do I have something that is that valuable? Or have they put an inflated price on their merchandise? You be the judge!!!
It's Monday and I'm joining Sally at Smiling Sally for Blue Monday.
