I hate shopping.Okay except fabric stores when I have money and wool shops ( out of desire).
But in general I hate shopping. It is a task.Today I was driving from point A to B and on the side of the road ( dirt farm road) was a sign.....Everything Free.
I stopped the car to take a look. And there were finds!
Wicker planter with black plastic liner. I know these are $16.99 at the grocery store, as I spied ( liked) them last week. This one is a little bent out of shape, so I shall soak it and re-shape it.
Oil lamp. Oh what is Dearest going to say........" another one!" I have a large collection of historical ones. This one is a 1928 American made base and a newer ( 1940's) metal wick threader ( Canadian). The chimney is newer from Home Hardware, but it screamed to me. Perfect for the toddlers room, for those, what if the power goes out moment. I shall dye the oil pink. There!!!
The oil painting is an original from Keirstead a Canadian painter from Kingston, Ontario. It is called Poppy Garden and I know for a fact is worth some money. However skip the value, I like it. Just haven't figured out where to put it yet.
I must admit. I like road side shopping.
