I am and always have been a bargain hunter. I love going to thrift stores and garage sales to see what I can get for as inexpensively as possible. Since I was in my early 20s, I found old things to refurbish by adding my own unique touch.
I found this little clay treasure for $3. It was dirty and although I did kind of like the colors, I found it to be too dull for my taste. But I knew someone had made it and it was sitting there smiling at me to take it home and make it useful. I thought a fresh paint job to brighten it up is exactly what it needed.
