Trashy Tuesday, My Easter is in the Dumps
Welcome to the trashiest day of the week! Trashy Tuesday! Where the junque gets weirder and weirder every week. This week, we are decorating for Easter. I know, it feels like Valentine’s day just left us, but get your Easter Bonnets ready because Easter is only 46 days away. It is never to early to start planning.
My Easter theme started last week when I found this pitcher.
And these Easter Flower pots:
Easter decorations were multiplying in the dumpster like rabbits during the past week! Just this morning I found all of this!!!!
And even more Easter inside of Easter.
And not be outshone by Easter. I found these lamps! I had a lovely conversation with the original owner. Just after I muttered under my breath, “who in the world would throw out these lamps????” I heard a voice, “so glad you found our lamps, we were hoping someone would do something with them.” I am positive he meant that someone was ME.
Really? This is why you threw them in the trash outside your apartment? Maybe they see me around those parts and instead of someone, they meant, ME!
I also found some nice grape vine wreaths, Halloween will be parting with them, but the wreaths were actually on my craft store shopping list!
How about some fun tins. These make great storage and are so cute when painted, and even a graphic added.
Plus, they left me individually wrapped snacks! Dumpster Diving can work up an appetite.
Someone has been hitting the bottle, and the pretty bottles. I don’t know why, I keep finding bunches of these. Better get started upcycling them or someone entering the garage might get the wrong impression about what I do in my private time.
Jjust in case my sweet dog Keiki has an accident, I have a FULL bottle of carpet pet mess cleaner/neutralizer. People. I can’t make this stuff up. Plus some steel wool (which I use often). An upholstery staple puller. Really? Yes really, plus a cool brush I have been using with my CeCe Caldwell’s Aging Cream.
And as my favorite Rabbit says, “that, that, thats all folks!”
