Was it the naughty Santa? The pink toilet? The taxidermied raccoon?
None of the above. It was a blue wooden ice cream maker! Love that paper label on it.
Non-functional, but I would probably never in a zillion years make ice cream in something like this (old, wooden, dirty). Who am I kidding, when they invented Ben and Jerry's Phish Food ice cream, all ice cream makers became obsolete.
I'm using it as a vase right now, but I'll probably put flags in it for 4th of July.
For my photo effect above, I used one layer of Kim Klassen's Subtly Yours texture in Soft Light at 70%. You can roll over the photo to see what it looked like straight out of the camera (SOOC), before I started messing with it. For those that subscribe to my blog through email, the roll over thing unfortunately doesn't work. You have to be on the actual blog post to see it (it's really not all that exciting, just take off your glasses and forget about the French words on the bottom and that about sums it up).
