(and no it's not a garden gnome).. but I've decided to wait and share it with NEXT week's treasures.. since it's only one. By the way, my husband was with me when I bought it.. and he looked at me and said.. "you are kidding right? What ARE you going to do with that thing? "I told him I was going to put it in our bedroom.. and he looked at me and said.. " only in your dreams".. lol so you KNOW it's gotta be cool! I was going to put it back but the guy gave it to me for $3.00 bucks! HOW COULD I NOT GET IT?? lol.. now I know you are dying to see what it is.. stayed tuned for next week!
