Just a few odds and ends from the past week. Not much.
Honestly, I have been really good about not picking up everything I see at the curb. I’ve passed by tables, chairs, entertainment centers, desks, a workbench, even windows lately.
My home, yard, garage, storage shed and basement are all bursting at the seams with junk. It’s the age old dilemma, got junk but no time to use it!
I’ve even been contemplating having my own junk sale to clear out some of the excess.
This chair was sitting at the curb just like this. Broken piece sitting on the seat. Speaking of seat, the caning is in perfect condition!
All it needs is a little bit of that Gorilla Glue that my pal Gail is giving away right now.
Then this little beaut will be as good as new! I kid you not, this chair is super sturdy and otherwise perfect.
How sad that the owner didn’t know about gluing and clamping.
These rustic wooden pieces caught my eye as I was driving into a small town yesterday. They were sitting at the curb along with a few other odds and ends.
I almost didn’t go back and check it out.
There were 2 boxes with taped up handles, and a wooden bowl.
I’m in love with these, even though I have no idea what I’ll do with them!
This oval oak snack table was in perfect condition. I like this shape so much better than the tables I have now.
Wonder what happened to the rest of the set?
I have a thing for picnic baskets.
This will be used for storage on a shelf somewhere.
OK, I know this step stool is really rough. I hesitated a long time (almost 3 full seconds) before putting it in the car.
I just couldn’t stop myself.
I love the darned things. Especially the wooden ones.
It goes back to childhood memories of fighting with my sisters over who got to sit on the kitchen stepstool when we visited my Grandpa’s house after church every Sunday.
Since there were 6 of us, and only one stool we had plenty of fights over it.
After my Grandpa passed and the house was cleared out we all got to pick one thing to keep.
Guess what I picked? Yup, the stepstool. Sadly, that one is long gone, but they still hold a special place in my heart.
Gotta go now, it’s trash day somewhere….
