One Woman's Junk...

Is another woman's treasure.....

I found this funky wire basket at our local recycling depot.  It,
along with several other items, was a whopping $5.  The gal that
works at the depot gave me a very skeptical look when I said "oh,
how great is that - look at all that rusty goodness".  I think she
thought I was crazy (yeah, crazy in LUV).  Throw
in a few vintage bottles, some daisies and some
vintage linen.....it's all in the display - no?

What's fabulous is that Mr. Biff (my better half) totally gets
it.  He brought home this float (the kind that
holds up fishing nets - plentiful on the Island) the other day -
and topped with a dried hydrangea.....wow....
simply beautiful!


Never underestimate the potential of something old to become
something new and beautiful!
