Ew to New #11

the line of cars to pick up michael from school wraps around a residential area and while parked one day, i noticed a man sitting in his garage staring at the pile of trash he had out at the curb. hmmmm...very large bathroom sink, a few bags, a weird plastic part of something, a nasty looking broom...and then...SCORE!!! well, this is not the best picture...

gorgeous picture frame! i got out and asked if i could have it. he said, "yeah, take whatever you want. you want the sink, too?" um, no thanks; i don't plan on doing any front yard bath fixture gardening, or whatever that's called. reminds me of the tub with the tuba in it about two miles from here. yes, i said tub and tuba. no joke.

anywho, the paperboard was a gift from my momma...well, she used it to protect a painting she sent me in the mail. that's why it's all taped up. i'm glad i didn't throw it away and stuffed it under our bed intead. so, i went to town collecting papers in the right colors and then punched away!

see that little tree on the left? that's from my girl, Denise. she sent it to me like the sweetheart that she is. i plan to decorate it and put it right back up in that little spot.
