I'm delighted with my new little free pile project...
I actually turned around for this one because I spotted a cute little red stool.
Turned out it was way too decayed.
Not to be deterred - I picked up these chopsticks instead.
After a few coats of paint...
(sometimes it pays to keep an extra styrofoam egg carton on hand)
...some hot glue and a bit of glittery snow
(glitter would have worked too - but I was thinking 'white'...)
I have 4 new stars for Christmas decorating in a few weeks.
I'm thinking these will end up on a garland - but we shall see...
The rest of the story however goes like this...
What I hadn't noticed from my car was a great old
floor scales - with weights! I was so excited!
It needed a bit of redoing - but it looked good.

But - for the life of me - I could not man-handle that thing into my car -
it was just too heavy! It sat at the end of a long lane and I was
too short on time to travel in the lane and ask for help.
It hurt - a lot - but I left probably the best 'free' find of my life
right there and instead rescued only chopsticks.
Can you believe it?
