Yard sale season is officially here and I have already made my first big purchase for 2013.  Mattie Windsor and I spotted this amazing stool at a yard sale on our way to the greenhouse this past Saturday morning.


 According to the seller, the stool came out of her grandmother’s print shop in Maryland. Although the stool shows a few signs of wear (rust around the feet and a split in the wooden seat), I still felt like it was an excellent score for $20.


Our new stool has already been purposed into a plant stand in our living room.


P.S. Please do not judge my green thumb based on the sad condition of the Christmas cactus pictured above.
