Trashy Treasures Tuesday

Alrighty!!!  Here we are on Tuesday... my favorite day of the week.  Why you ask???  It's trash day!  Ok , for most of you out there, I know you're thinking  "really, trash get you excited?", and I can honestly answer a resounding YES!!!  Ok, so it's a little back woods bubba to be trash pickin', but there's some seriously good stuff out there!  Let me show you my haul from today...

some things are almost perfect and ready to be put to good use

some things need a little glue and a new purpose

some things might just end up back in the trash ;)

And some things just need a fresh coat of paint and a new wire or two

Here are some recent finds from the last few weeks... BEFORE I broke my rib LOL.  It's hard to be driving and picking stuff up when your rib is broken, although a few Tuesdays I've thought real hard about going out anyway.  It seems to be becoming an addiction, or at least that's what my honey says anyway.

This little pretty is going to get a very pretty overhaul

the kitty has already claimed it, she can have it... for now

this beauty stayed in our kitchen for a while, then went to craigslist, just sold yesterday

not really our speed, but going to craigslist today 

cute little lazy susan... I might use it for paint storage

Pretty, but my honey HATES it with a passion so it goes on Craigslist today as well :(

So, stick around and see what becomes of all my little trashy treasures (and if my honey lets me bring any more home!!  I'll be posting my new finds here every Tuesday as long as there are trashy treasures to be found!  Look for a fun tutorial soon on how to make a sweet valentines frame from an old frame and some book pages.  It's gonna blow you away!


  1. O.K. I'm totally amazed by your TRASH finds. Are these literally things that are just sitting on people's curbs? Are you digging? I need all the dirty details!

  2. Yes!!! They are just sitting there plain as day. I just finally got the stones to get out of the truck and pick them up. I am NOT into digging for treasure, ewwwww!
