1960's Faux fountain updo

Hello friends!  Remember how I told you that I went thrift store shopping with my sister last weekend?  Well.. here is one of my wonderful finds.  It is a 2 piece faux fountain probably made back in the 1960's or 1970's.  It is really heavy and when I saw first laid eyes on it -- it was an ugly avocado green color with gold accents.  It had a price tag of $1.50.  I was like, "oh yeah... that's for me!"  I have been looking for something to hang on the privacy fence.  I brought it home and the hubby spray painted it this rust color and hung it up for me.   I plan to plant some ivy in it very soon, but I just stuck this artificial greenery in  so I could go ahead and show you all.

This was the original color.  Sorry.. but I just couldn't deal with the gold gilding.
 
 

Thanks for dropping by to see me.  Have a great week!
