Every now and then I'll spot something that someone has thrown out
and think to myself that I just NEED it....
I know you have too, so fess up!!
So why is it that I feel like a thief -- a thief that EVERYONE has their eyes on -- as I skulk around, trying to act nonchalant. I mean, they did throw it away, after all.
But that thief feeling persists and so it's got to be a really great thing for me to do a stop and grab with what I KNOW are many eyes peering from behind the curtains, watching me.....
I can tell you this -- I will never dumpster dive!!
When I saw this chair, I knew it would be perfect for photos but it was on my street and I felt kind of embarrassed to stop. So I passed on by, got to my house and reasoned that I didn't know the people who threw the chair out .... so I went back. Now all those eyes were on me, for sure!
Got out of the car and -- oh no! -- no seat in the chair
and it was a bad paint job of white over blue! But I HAD to get it now since I had totally made a spectacle of myself. And, of course, I had a bit of trouble juggling it into the back seat! Glory be, I finally got it in and turned the car around and went back home.
Oh, my cheeks were burning!
But it's a cute chair even with the bad paint job.
And it will be great for vintage photos.
I decided to leave it as is with the blue showing through, but I think I'll have to fashion something for a seat.
The afghan kept trying to fall through!!
(this is an afghan I made and listed (and sold!) in Magnolia Surprise, my handmade shop)
OK, it fess up time -- what have you picked up on the side of the road?
