I do not think that Junker Newbie is still doing her Would You Buy It Wednesday Parties. I know my blogging is suffering with all the holidays activities underway. However, I still come across items that I wonder if others would buy. So even though there is no link party and it isn’t Wednesday….here goes.
Would you buy the “lady snowman” above? Something about it made me pick it up. It is heavy. It actually is a wooden bowling pin. I think when this little lady was made it probably was adorable, but it has seen its better days.
This is actually how the hat was in the thrift store. Yikes. So why did I buy it? I love the look of bowling pins. I want to be able to sand it down to its natural state to use as a display piece.
Here is what it looks like after all of its adornment was removed. Much better. But I can’t wait to sand it to see what it will look like. The only problem is that I have no place to do that now that it is so cold out. I don’t have a heated garage, and it is in the 20s in there. I promise I will post a picture of what it looks like after the paint is removed, but you might have to wait until spring thaw.
So have you ever bought a bowling pin?
