A trip to the moon on gossamer wings...

Tuesday, June 29, 2010 |
(i love cole porter)
ok, so these wings might not be as delicate as gossamer wings, but this was one sweet deal! when i found her at d.i. (a chain of local thrift stores here in utah), she still had the original tags on-$30!
h-no is what i say!
i paid $4.
i tried to get a good photo, but couldnt. the bottom comes off and you can stick a candle in there! wont that be cool?
and she is actually heaver than she looks.
thankfully, i work out (kissing my bicepts now).
of course that green would NEVER do, so i took a can of spray paint to it and...
i dont think she wil stay here on the back porch, but i wanted to get her out somewhere!

I LOVE the green!!
I just came by to thank you for the comment on my blog and i got distracted reading and then came across this and had to comment!
i love things spray painted funky colors, i saw in this thrift store that revamps everything they get in a little like concrete angel that they spray painted orange and i wanted it! so bad! but i could make my own for a fraction of the cost, so im still on the hunt for a little concrete angel. anyway /end ramble.
