I want to add before we begin that I am joining my prayers with all of yours for those families who lost their children and loved ones in this recent school shooting. My heart is so heavy. For me, in my small way, creating something and sharing this with others helps to heal my heart. I hope it does for you as well. We can’t stop life, we shouldn’t be glued to our TV’s gleaning every ounce of news. Let’s pray, meditate and send comforting words and thoughts. Tell your family how much you love them. Bring joy to someone elses life today by a small act of kindness. If we all did this, every day. We can make a difference and fight against the evil we have just witnessed.
And we can find some humor and joy in other people’s Junque……..
Welcome to another addition of Trashy Tuesday, where we talk trash, literally. Here is the update for last week. I would have thought with the rain we have been experiencing and the cold weather that the dumping would have slowed down. Not so! Also, my favorite dumpster has been quite barren as of late, so I have had to start broadening my horizons.
Here is what I rounded up this week:
This table, a (sneak) from the dump where I was giving my semi-annual offerings. Not sure what to do with it, but I liked it’s retro feel. The dump did not need this!
Behind my children’s school. Yes, at the end of the cul-de-sac where their school sits at the top of hill was recently a dumping ground for furniture. I am not sure what I might do with this headboard, but I couldn’t let it just sit there in the mud….
Another graveyard I found for furniture is an empty field near a big strip mall, Target, etc. Boggles my mind why people don’t just drive the extra 10 minutes, pay $20 and dump their stuff at the appropriate place. Anyhow, I thought this old cupboard door was pretty cool and would make a great sign or artwork.
I am shaking my head at myself, along with the rest of you at this save. What can I say, I have a weak spot for carts. This one is in sad shape, but I have some ideas, hopefully I can save it.
And finally, yes Susan and Catherine. I did go back for those screen doors!
That rounds it out! If you have any ideas and suggestions for what to do with my finds, I welcome them all! Did you find any good junque this week?
