Driving home from the train station we happened upon a pair of red shutters unceremoniously cast aside for the trash truck. Can you believe the Russian had pedaled by on his bike for at least two weeks straight, hoping beyond hope that I wouldn't see them and bring them home?



The mini-van was full of kids and friends, but we found room for them anyway, Sam huddling down in the back seat so they could pass over his head. And now my Sweet says they're beautiful and he's so happy I found them. Good grief!

What a find...they're beautiful and I can understant why you couldn't resist them.
I had a similar occurance with my husband wondering why I wanted a vintage white birdcage ~ he knows I don't like birds in cages ~ but I convinced him we NEEDED to take it home.
It now hangs beautifully housing a plant in our outdoor entertaining area. A light illuminates it in the evening too.
Why don't they just admit defeat and get on with it? We know best when it comes to the nest!

Here's to our next find :D

Alli, I have done things like that repeatedly over the 49 years of my marriage. I am an incurable 'junker' at heart.
Hugs,
Pam i am :)

One persons trash is another person's treasure.

Now that just makes me smile, Allison. Glad to know we aren't the only hoarders in this group! ;)

Just the sort of thing my husband would do and say. I've found some good things but, unfortunately, nothing like that!
