A Chair and A Spare


I can't believe my luck. . .Driving down a Missouri highway, minding my own business, lost in my thoughts, I begin to see something taking on some kind of form way up ahead. . .My junkin' instincts are on high alert. . . My foot gets a little heavier on the gas. . .I begin to shake my head as I get closer. . .a big smile forming on my face. . .

"One (wo)mans junk. . .Another (wo)man's treasure"
I thought to myself.

This has happened to me before--when I least expected it. . .but this time I STOP and CONSIDER. . .Did I REALLY want two more chairs to clean up and store with my other fifty or so? . .After all, I've been cleaning out and cutting back on junkin' lately. . .because I have found I already have so much and need to purge some of the possessions. . .Add two more? . .Where will I use them? . .Hmmmm. . .Wouldn't they go well in the log cabin?. . .or by the fireplace in the house?. . .Wouldn't Boo enjoy one there? . .What will John say when he has to unload the car and find a place to store them?
Do I dare load them up and carry them home?

 
OF COURSE.!!!!!!

Of course one stops when there are good treasures to grab. You have space and buildings that would love a chair or two. They won't go to waste. Of course, you knew that!
Farmhouse hugs,

Hi, Dru. Love your 'find'!

Terri Cheney said...

Yeah, I would have stopped too...I was in someone else's car the other day and saw a roadside find. I said "Oh gosh if I was in my car, I would so stop and get that!" Strange look from the person next to me. Yes, yes, I am a trash picker, a curbside scourer, a dumpster diver. Love finding those lovely treasures someone else considers trash and unworthy of attention.
