I have written about my little white urns before.
I bought six of them for $3.18 a piece after continually
checking on them at Pier 1.
The original price for each one was $12.98.
They are CUUUUTTTTEEEE. But not $12.98 cute!
Originally they had plastic (really!) cactus in them.
I could not wait to tear out that cactus and
put white pumpkins on top.
Since them I have used them
every single season,
and topped them with something different
For summer I took four of them and lined my
new fireplace in my living room.
At each end I put a concrete topiary
that I bought at Wal-Mart at the end of the summer season
for $3.00 each.
They were originally $15.00.
I guess I am pretty darn good at stalking
.....something I want to buy!
The green balls I put on top of the
little white urns
are from Michael's.
I happened upon them
(no stalking involved!!)
at 90% off.
I grabbed them up!
So for right around $25, I have my summer mantle.
That is $25 spent in comparison to the full price of
little white urns, cement topiaries, and green leafy balls of....$115.00!!
I have also put the green leafy balls
in a galvanized tray and a wicker tray.
They, like the urns, are multi-functional.
That makes it even better.
Since I only used four of the
little white urns
on the mantle,
the other two are in
the dining room.
I topped them off with
looking-glass paper weights
I bought at
annual warehouse sale.
They were $1.00 a piece.
I use them various places and various ways
Tonight when I was at
I saw softball size
real orange pumpkins.
I smiled to myself
it would not be long
before small white pumpkins
are available to buy as well.
The sweet little white urns are about to
get their new duds.
They (and their accessories) might have been
but they are worth their weight in gold!
