Dumpster Diving (a new pastime)

Ok, ok, it is not as bad as it sounds.
For goodness sake, it was my sister's dumpster

The look on my brother-in-law's face was priceless when he saw my eyes fixate on what was sticking out of his garbage. Jason: "Jill, it's broken."

Oh yes, broken and beautiful.

I propped it up here for the pic, but my friend had a cute idea to put it in the kitchen with a dish towel hanging on it. It goes to show that one man's (Jason) trash is another woman's treasure. Maybe next time I can even score some pop cans.

OH how I love you Jill! Keep the trash coming Jason. Come over this next week and we will go diving in the secret shed.

I so wish I had the ability to see the beauty in that kind of stuff. I love what you do! I will never be able to, I'm not that creative!
