Welcome to Trashy Tuesday, let’s talk trash, “Junque” I like to call it.
The trash to treasure projects I had planned to share are just ………almost finished.
I am still frantically playing catch up, and painting like crazy to have things to put in my NEW space at Paris Flea Market in two weeks. Oy Vey!!! All exciting, but when you have the family I have, well let’s say, two of the children I have, well……it can take all of the starch out of you. More on this soon, raising a kid with a somewhat “strong” personality shall we say….
Back to my trash.
Here is how my Thursday went last week. On my way to pick up some free to me’s from a couple of friends. Ring, ring.
Good friend: Hi Karen, I was out walking with my mom this morning and saw this beautiful chair that someone threw in a ditch, thought you might be interested.
Not me in the ditch…..
GTC: (making a u-turn), Of Course, thanks so much!
Down a country road I go, scouring the right side for “The Chair”. My heart skips a beat, there it is! Wait, it has friends! A little girl’s chair, and a pretty solid cabinet.
Do I care that the road is jam-packed with joggers and cyclists out for morning exercise?
Do I care that I look odd climbing through branches and trees to pull someone’s discarded furniture out?
Good thing I don’t care what other people think, because I was a site, but here is what I got. FOR FREE!
Now, what do you find when you are out on a walk?
