Saturday Surprises! BOO!

You never know what you'll find at a flea market, and September's Texas Antiques Week in Warrenton was no exception. While I was strolling the wares laid out over acres of farmland with Scott Stephenson (the husband of the famous and fabulous Vintage Laundress, LeAnn Stepenson) and his lovely kids Olivia and Noah, just what do we fall upon but this aluminum coffin.

The vendor suggested using it as a drink cooler at a party, but Scott, being the good sport that he is, hopped in and tried it on for size! There's a note above it that says: " Great gift for the future ex-husband." Well I can say Scott's definitely a real keeper, but when we went to see if the ghoulish find was there the next day, it wasn't!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

  3. I find this whole coffin thing a bit creepy, my son finds it "Cool". A generation gap, perhaps?

    Thanks fo stopping by my blog. I feel like a celebrity unexpectedly came to vist. Were the floors clean? Did I dust? Was my lipstick smeared? Come back! ~Shara

  4. Hi Stan!
    I like the idea of using the coffin as a cooler. Thanks for stopping by and Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!


  5. Stan,
    one can always use it to cool a body....
