hacked by PB?

Last week I was enraged to see Ballard knocking off my one-of-a-kind primitive bell. Imagine my frustration when our neighbor dropped off weekend's mail. Included in the pile of catalogs:

[summer issue of Pottery Barn catalog]

Let me draw your attention to the upper left corner of the cover, directly under the R in Pottery Barn...

 What's that? Look familiar you say? Gee, maybe it reminds you of this little treasure I snagged at a Charlotte antique mall this weekend?

Complete with a crack in the side. just. like. mine. ugh.

Luckily, PB isn't selling it. At least not yet. Though this is usually a frustration-- when I see something amazing they've used to style their glossy pages and can't head to the interweb to make it mine-- today I am happy about this. So until they mass-market their version, I will revel in my found uniqueness.

Hey Pottery Barn, wanna hire me as a buyer/stager? What are the odds I can start a bidding war between PB and Ballard for my talented eye? That'd just be awful....a girl can dream can't she?
