I became a real trash picker, LOL!!

Yesterday, while driving through our old neighborhood & scoping out the garbage, I saw a great potting cart that was sitting out to be thrown away. It is wooden with 2 drop down sides and a full shelf underneath with plate rail along the sides. The bottom has wheels on it to make it look like a cart.
Well, it was broad daylight so I didnt just want my Dh to stop and load the car but I really wanted it so....I went up to their door and asked if they would mind if I take it. They guy said that he wouldnt mind at all so off it went into the trunk. It is sitting in our garage now. Im not quite sure what I want to do with it....Im running out of room in my house for stuff, LOL!!

I now have a car, but before I did I did this...

I was paying for a transportation service and we went past one of those preschool wooden stoves and I asked him to pull over, load it up and he actually drove me home and then took me to my college...hehe! I found enough toys on the side of the road, either outside of my home, down the street or somewhere, enough to open up a daycare. I gave it to my friend with 3 kids, I'm sure she's getting more use out of it than my only child!

Got to love those trash to treasures...
