BETWEEN BARBARA STREISAND & TOM JONES......


Who doesn't like a freebie??? Well on my "junkin escapde" the other day I came across this old bread board that still had the original old chippy ivory color paint along the edge. It was sitting in a box of old records...between Barbara Streisand and Tom Jones! I yanked this out so fast that the whole box of records fell apart but it was TOTALLY worth it!! Anyway.....I went to get a price and the guy said "what are you gonna do with this thing??? .....WEEELLLLLLL , I told him that I had no idea at the moment but I would for sure figure out the perfect place for it to go and he needn't worry! LOL..Then he said the best four letter word that starts with "F " ever to be heard............you can have it for FREE!!!!! Yep FREE!!! So, inside I am like doing cartwheels and jumpin for joy and all that but outside I am the calm cool business woman and said "well okay that sounds good..thanks....." and turned around and ran to put it in the truck!! When I got home I put some paste wax on it and cleaned it up a bit and then walked around the house thinking and looking on where this baby might land....As you can see it landed under my cloche on top of my chippy side table!!... A way better spot than being stuck between Babs and Tom don't ya think! Til next time........

What a steal, I can see the old, ivory paint on the edge...I think I would have squealed when he said the word "free":)
Have a great day and it looks great where you have it!

Oh me dear, stuck between those two, I'm surprised the poor breadboard had any paint left at all...

You are too funny!

Girl, you are more calm cool and collected than me, I would still be screaming. Great item and love how you used it. I agree stuck between them two, it is a wonder it survived.

Yep that's the best kinda free. When no one else knows what to do with it, us recyclers always do.

First time here, I'll be back.
