Pottery Barn Wanna-Be's

I saw these in the Pottery Barn catalog while at the car dealership Saturday...

Then I remembered I purchase two very similar lanterns at a local resale store a couple of weeks ago for $1.99 each.

- Get lanterns out of trunk (yes, from two weeks ago).
- Get big *#@ acorns out my car door that I picked up off the ground at work.
- Shop the house for random candles.

Voila...Pottery Barn Wanna-Be(s) - all I need now is some fake snow!

Those look great! What a bargain for $1.99. You do have an eye for accessories - you just have to remember to get them out of your trunk and put them to use. LOL.

I like that you'll be able to use them year round!

Heres what I wanted to say:
I believe the Fairy Godmother of Thrift has bestowed upon you a genuine knock off! LOL I would never know the difference without a side by side comparison!

They look great, I love the rustic natural feel to them. I also love the bargain price! I picked two lanterns up from Lowes clearance, and may just have to add some natural elements to them. Thanks for sharing.
