Saturday Steals: French Apothecary Jar and A Little Less Rooster

Hello. Welcome to Saturday Steals.

If I don’t sound enthusiastic this week it’s because I’m not.

I’m getting burned out of this whole Saturday Steals business.

It’s not that I’m not getting steals… On the contrary; I get great steals. Every week. Sometimes every day.

But I am getting tired of sharing them. It’s a lot of work, you know. (You do know. Otherwise you would join in every week. Lazies.)

But I set out to do it for at least a year, and when I have a conviction I may as well go to prison, that’s how convicted I am. (Convict, get it?)

Anyway, there’s no getting rid of me now. And there’s no getting rid of me next week, either.

But I don’t have to be chipper about it.


This week I got a cute french-looking white ceramic apothecary jar (slash cookie jar) for $1.00 at the Sally Ann.

Here it is, complete with my attempt at skillfully styling a photo:

I think I could’ve done without the rooster. That should pretty much be the overriding theme of my life: “Hmm…Camille was close…but she could’ve used a little less rooster.”

Photographic creativity fail.

Saturday Steal success.


Now it’s your turn.

Steal a steal.

Take a picture.

Write a post.

Add the link.

The end.

(List open from now until Sunday night at 11:59.)

    Cute steal :) I totally understand the burning outage of weekly posts. I revamped IHM several times because of it. Daunting. Structured. Inflexible. Hang in there, it’s fun!

    hahahahahaha. I am starting to feel the same way now that I am posting steals too, I haven’t posted ANYTHING this week since the last Saturday Steal, Ha! My readers are probably glad this thing exists…

    …here goes the inner battle: will I participate this week? angel and demon are on my shoulders battling it out as we speak… i guess only time will tell! at least I have through Sunday to get my act together! Adorable jar, you were cracking me up about the rooster.

    … i kid you not as soon as I hit send, I heard a rooster crow outside somewhere… I have never heard this before in this neighborhood… coincidence? I think not…!

    has really had fun this weekend with SS! Blog land can be super dead on the weekends in general, and I really enjoy having something to fill my time! :)

  7. Why I’m reminded of Alice in Chain’s “The Rooster” song is beyond me…

    Not to say this was on a Saturday, but yesterday I must have saved a good $5.00 US by NOT taking the tollway going up to Milwaukee and back.
