Happy Tuesday, today will be my trashiest, trash talking post of the week. Full of just junque. But only the good kind of trash talk.
Too much junque piled up in my garage!
If you were to take a peek over my fence, this is what you would see. See the bench on the ground in front of the bench hanging up? I found the bench in a Dumpster, it is actually really nice, but we haven’t gotten around to switching it out with the bench hanging up, which incidentally, is falling apart. (Sidenote: My friend Rhea and her husband at Saltaire Restoration make these amazing bench swings from old shutters. I am buying one next summer. After you read about my junque, go check them out) We are going to the Dump Saturday to get rid of the remnants of the carpet we pulled up. That pile is not my fault!
I sold just about every last thing this weekend at Paris Flea Market, and I was so thrilled. This means I can maybe, finally start putting a serious dent into my “stuff” that has been accumulating for oh so long. I promised myself on Saturday it would be my last Dumpster Diving day for an entire month. A MONTH! This being the first of the month, I thought it would all be downhill from here. My resolve dissolved as soon as I got up at the crack of dawn. I realized I had time to hit my favorite Apartment Dumpster complex before my kids were up. People may have moved out on Sunday, and I may have missed something good. So off I went, feeling like an addict who needed a fix.
And finally, I was GIVEN this by Susan at Paris Flea Market. So, see? I don’t even have to get in my car and look for junque. I am just a junque magnet.
So, here I sit, shamelessly sharing what I found. And it was goooood. I will not, I will not, I will not go Dumpster Diving again. Until next Monday and maybe over the weekend someone threw something else out that was really good. Hopefully by then, this pile will be much smaller…..
