Trash…

Sunshine and SetteeSo I don’t usually pick from the trash or ask stores when they are getting new displays but I am going to make it a habit now…

Last week I found an awesome settee outside of someone’s house near my sitter’s and I had to have it. They stored it in their garage until my husband could pick it up with his truck now it’s in my garage. I will be taking some time this summer to recover it and make it mine…I can’t wait!

Then last night I was at Bath and Body Works with my sister and I noticed a really cool sun they had for a display. On the front it said, “You are my sunshine” and the sun’s rays spin around. I asked what they did with them once they changed their displays and the lady working said they just throw them away. What a shame…I asked if I could have it…guess what? They called me today and told me I could pick it up. It’s in my car to be brought to my school tomorrow. I can’t wait to hang it in my classroom to add cool sunshine to a room that has no windows.

I will take to heart…”One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
