some call it hoarding, others call it scrounging or recycling, i just call it treasure. Last week our local council had a pick up day where you leave all your
junk treasure on the front lawn for them to do a tip run… which means all of us scroungers drove round for hours taking freebies home to upcycle or ebay.
Look at my great stuff: this fab cardboard suitcase. (retro?) Whoo hoo!
Then there was Betty: forlorn, tattered, broken arm… but i can see her potential.
Her frame is solid, the re-upholstering easy and can you believe she is a little rocker?
Even broken she is a joy to sit in, maybe my new knitting chair … if i ever get anything on those needles. Betty you are gorgeous, can’t wait to see you in my house after your make over.
Then there was this free pine firewood and this is not even a third of it. Feel blessed
There’s more finds too, post later. And i just for the record, for every thing i picked up, i left 3 pieces behind i really wanted to take home. Self control – tick!
