A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

'Free Pile' Season Is Here...

Here in this more northern climate - free piles and curbside finds 
are pretty scarce during the winter months. 
But 2 weeks ago - my neighbor had a small 'Free' sign out - with this bucket...

 It said 'free scrap metal - take bucket too'.  OK.  I can do that.
It's the bucket that I wanted anyway.  

It even has its original 'WHITE' label.  Labels are always good!
 The bucket was about half full of greasy bolts and small car parts.... 
truly nothing worth keeping.
It made for a heavy load - but I chugged it home anyway (2 houses down).

 I salvaged a few pieces that looked interesting, 
and sent the rest to metal recycling.
Yay - 'Free' is back in season!
 Did you have any roadside rescues lately?
