A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Free Piles...

Do you get excited when you see free piles?  
Or items awaiting a trash pick-up that resemble
 something  other than - well - trash? 
Yesterday I came upon this...
...certainly worth turning around for huh?  
My eye was on a number of things - but especially...
...the lamp.  It turned out to be irrepairable.  
The furniture didn't appeal to me - even for a makeover.  
And the rugs - well - just too stained.
  Even the lamp shade was  stained - so I
 passed on everything this time.  But just recently
 I have found a neat old dresser
 (makeover in progress - stay tuned), several candles and 
a pile of colorful, new envelopes that will come in
 handy for bill paying.  
Oh - & a lamp shade I hope to do this with...
Do you brake for Free Piles?
Makes me sound pathetic doesn't it - I hope I have some company.

Oh my, we went to a yard sale that had everything $1 or less. We made 4 trips... I think I may have a hording disorder. We got everything from yarn to discarded furniture to really cute cups and saucers and the list goes on. I love free, thinking that it may be useful to someone that I know, and sometimes we can resell it. Then it is all profit.

Good Evening Joyce Sweetie...
I think we need to make a bumper sticker just for us gals that brake for PILES. We resemble a fire drill in progress as we jump out, run around the vehicle and quickly dig through the goodies.

I can't wait to see what you are giving new life to. I know it will be gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing sweet friend. Have a glorious evening. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
