This post is supposed to be sung to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Yeah, good luck with that.

On my thrift store trip to Ithaca, the junk gods gave to me,

One giant wicker thing:

Two big-ass lawn swans (cat not included):

A blinged-out horse hat:

A seventies wooden bird:

A Saint Francis of Assisi, a black Jesus, a Madonna planter, and a phoenix something:

And all for thirty-five dollars!

(Yes, yes, there is indeed one born every minute.)

(Many thanks to the Open  Door Mission thrift store in Owego, the Ithaca Salvation Army thrift store, the Ithaca Thrifty Shopper, and the Ithaca Antique Center, aka The Greatest Store Ever in the History of the World.)

Great post. Thinking you should have your own show on HGTV....not as bland as the others, you understand.

If you keep collecting, you might even get on TLC!

I'm told "Black Jesus" is probably not Jesus but a saint. Like this one:

Of course, Jesus was probably pretty brown given where he was from...
