A while back, I saw this cactus cookie jar and thought it would be a good addition to my collection of pieces for the hutch in my formal living room. I've been on the hunt for white pieces to balance out the dark colors (navy walls, dark wood finish on the hutch). But, alas, this was a $50 cookie jar originally, and I did not want to pay $50 (or even $28 when it went on sale). I thought it would be a fun addition to the room, and a nice little nod to the desert we live in.

Well, the other day the Cat and I popped in to the Salvation Army and spied this little gem.
Hideous? Maybe. But I thought it would be just fine with a couple of coats of white spray paint.
One of the only differences between the original $50 cookie jar and the one I paid $2.26 for is that mine only has one flower instead of 3. Oh well!
