My 11 yo DS is very much into finding treasures. We had junk pickup this week and he brought some things home unbeknown to DH and myself. We found it in the backyard, it was parts of a brandnew spreader minus the nuts and bolts. He then spotted something else on a pile coming home and had me stop, unfortunately the tball stand was broken but he did find a batman doll that only had a rip in his clothes. 6 yo DD looks too. We did not find as much or look as much as it has rained everyday and the items have been soaked. I did see a chest of drawers out but had to be somewhere and when came back it was gone.

DH, on the otherhand, would not pick anything up or if he did I would be in shock!

Mactom18, Im not sure what kind of canopy that you're looking for so here is a link that has a few different looks to them:

On the first page, theyve made a canopy using curtain rods hanging from the ceiling. Really cute!

Ive also seen a canopy made using PVC pipe as the frame and then it was covered with material---I think that was on The Christopher Lowell show.

Hope this helps,
