I get the best freebies when our neighborhood
has it's quarterly bulk trash pick-up.
Some people can't be bothered selling on
Craigslist or donating so they just toss
perfectly or slightly perfect household things
out to end up in our landfills!.
It's the stuff of nightmares!
I do what I can, by rescuing a few items.
Here's the three I found this time.
A beautiful wrought iron chandelier.
Ready to hang in my dining room.
It's 31"D and 21" high
It has 9 arms complete with shades.
Even the bulbs were included...
at no extra charge!
Perfect white shades.
A giant 36x48 canvas that had been painted
green. I can paint right over that or find lots
of creative uses for it at Pinterest.
I've pinned some too.
I unscrewed this perfect black lampshade
off of a broken lamp. I guess the former
owner didn't know you could do that.
It's black silk with a cream silk lining.
Of course there were lots more goodies,
but I was with someone that kept asking,
"Where are you gonna put it?" ahem!
I did tell my lawn guy to swing over a few
streets and pick up a great brown leather
sofa and love seat.
I'm gonna need a bigger truck!
