Everyone has to have a dream -- even if it is a crazy dream. My Dad always wanted a yellow convertible. I always thought that was a little crazy.
I never collected anything in my life until I hit my 50's, but now I collect milk glass, and I have quite a collection. There is a budget involved, and I only buy things that have a useful purpose. Unfortunately, there is one piece of milk glass that I have admired for a couple of years now, that is way over budget and has no useful purpose in my home whatsoever. It's called a lavabo. It's my understanding that a lavabo is used by priests to wash their hands prior to administering communion. The owner of the lavabo below has made a planter out of it -- which wouldn't work for me -- one more thing to get dusty.
The going rate for a lavabo appears to be between $110 and $150. Now, really, why do I want this silly thing?! It makes no sense whatsoever! I'm not usually a person who buys useless "things." It's not in my makeup. As a matter of fact, I'm known for my thrifty nature. Okay, so I'm cheap. Normally. So why on earth does it drive me crazy that I don't have one of these?! I wouldn't even have a place to put it! Dad always said that if he had a yellow convertible that it would spoil the dream. Sounds logical to me. I'm going with that.
