I love vintage trophies; they are so pretty and classic. They are subtle, yet confidant. Who wouldn't want a few of these hanging around the house?

Oh and so we are clear, my love of trophies does not stem from a life time of receiving them. If I wanted to display my own trophies, well, I couldn't. Being win-less in the trophy department doesn't stop me from wanting one (or several) though. I just have to go about getting them another way...
I will tell you this tale causally, but just know, that was not how it went down... You see, in my own defense, I have been wanting a little vintage treasure like this for a while now. I had been waiting patiently for the right one to cross my path. Telling myself, I just have to be patient.
I told myself this while cruising online seeing soooo many perfect ones, with a not as perfect price tag.
I told myself this while in Home Sense with my mom (after seeing some ceramic trophies for a pretty fair price...) "no, no wait it out" I said as I put my treasures back on the shelf...
Low and behold, the right one was out there. Just waiting for me.
I'm so glad that you didn't see my crazy-eyed, mad dash for it! It was, for lack of a better word, crazy.
I'm also glad you didn't witness the high fives and happy dance that I shared with the kids (who are way too young to be too cool for these things).
I'm even more glad that you weren't there to hear my 3 year old say: "oh mom, you make me crazy..."
Regrets? Nope, not when I paid $1.99 for my perfectly tarnished trophy! Well, maybe that happy dance was a little excessive...
Hooray for thrift stores: where other people's junk becomes my treasure!!!
