i for got to mention....











OK ok...so when i started this blog i forgot to mention... im a trash digger....i havent actually dug threw someone's trash to find there treasures....but i do look around in ppl yards. Freaky right! we just moved into a bigger home so i am always trying to find cheap ways to occupy the space.STORY: I had drove by this hutch so many times by my house and it was in someones trash tralior....so i finally got up the nerve to knock on there door and ask them if they were going to throw this hutch away? I was pretty sure i new who the lady was that lived there. YA!IT wasnt who i thought it was...so i felt So dumb asking if i could have this hutch ( i did ask if i could pay for it, but he insisted just taking it off his hands would be plenty) so he loaded it up for me and i brought this baby home. It was already red but really faded, so i just repainted red and sanded it. I LOVE it...Thank you neighbor! These ppl are in my church ward, we are new to the ward and we will forever be known as the lady that digs threw are trash! Oh well!!

Have you ever heard of Big Bulk Trash day? lol it's where u set all of the things u dont want on the curb and the trash man comes and picks it up. Just find out when they do it there and wake up early!! I did it in the Valley one time and there was so much free stuff lol

ha! I kinda do that.... When I'm driving I pay way to much attention to the side of the road cuz I keep thinking that I'm going to find some sort of cool treasure! (it's never happened in my over 10 years of driving) and when I go with my hubby out to the dump I literally cringe when I see people throwing away old things!
