It doesn't really make any sense to go to the Goodwill or Salvation Army with stuff to donate at the back door and then walk in the front and find more stuff that I really don't need. Took some old curtains that have been in the cabinet for the last 12 years, (previous owners taste) that came with the house, a basket, and a doggy tv remote holder. Went in the front and came out with a margarita glass, only one, a gravevine heart shaped basket, and a copper pot. Hmmmm ok, grapevine basket can be outside yard art, the margarita glass is unusal, not the kind with the cactus, but with a man with a sombero sitting against the stem. Copper pot label said it originally held popourri, but it could be for soaps or other things. I guess the point is when you get tired of some things you can always find something else to take it's place. Like the saying goes, one man's trash is another man's treasures.
and now there are 13 little ones
Craigslist is another one I have tried to avoid lately, bookmarked to farm and garden listings, I don't need anymore animals, actually did a headcount last week and need to downsize, seriously downsize since breeding season is now and there will be more new babies to add to the 13 that were born last month. But then I wander to other listings. Found a really neat hand made buffet, want to customize a bit, top shelves are open on the back, would look really good with beadboard backing, (road trip to Lowe's). Of course right next to it was a stacked unit with 5 wicker baskets and it is painted the same color as the hutch. Hmmm more projects, buffet bottom has lower shelf and only 2 drawers, would look really neat with a gathered skirt under the drawers to hide plastic bins I have wool and soap making supplies stored in. Have enough of the same fabric to cover a cushion for white wicker chair. Now I just need to find a spot for the furniture that is taking up my space ............. maybe another donation trip is in order.
