It's Vintage Black Friday over at the French Cupboard today and Flea Market Friday over at Kedcia's place...hope you all can play along.
Today I'm sharing 3 of my favorite favorite two giant black cement urns I got for a song at an auction a few years back.
These were one of those auction finds that I thought, "no way will I win these, I'm gonna get out bid right away" so I had kind of resigned myself to that fact and stood there almost feeling defeated before the bidding even started. I couldn't believe it, no one was bidding...I jumped in suddenly feeling determined  again, I think the other bidders just chimed in because they were going cheap....but guess what? I won! I won! I won! the pair for only $35...I did the happy dance and skipped away to get the truck!
 I got the little urn from the flea market...just love looking at it, as it sits beside the front door keeping my scarlet begonias safe and happy....
be sure to stop by and visit all the other Flea Market and VBF finds......oh, and don't forget this Sunday is Silver Sunday right here....hope to see you there!


  1. love the urn! i've always wanted one too; keep thinking i'll score an amazing one at a flea market some day. thanks for playing!


  2. Yay! Well done at the auction on these urns as one cannot have enough urns. Right? hugs♥olive

  3. So many great parties this weekend ~ I wish we could do all this in person. But those fabulous urns might be a little heavy lugging around:) They are super pretty. Happy FFM ~ VBF & SS!

  4. Hi Beth,

  7. Those are wonderful urns and for a great price! Last Sun. I got a piece of concrete for my garden too from an auction for next to nothing. I blogged about it too. I love the old black patina on yours. You don't see that too often.

  8. Big Smile - great urns! So glad to see they went to someone who appreciates them!
