One mans trash is another mans treasure...

The alley behind my house has some really great shopping! I've been in the market for a dining table and a few weeks ago I came home from work and there was this table and chair set next to the dumpster that someone had thrown out. Perfect and free!Then yesterday I was leaving my apartment and there was this huge box of glassware and kitchen knickknacks sitting next to the dumpster. I took it upstairs and rummaged through to find two awesome teapots, a bamboo mat, a glass candle holder, a fruit bowl all in perfect condition and much much more! I stuck it all in the dishwasher with a huge smile on my face.

I'm always on the lookout for a good bargain and it's even better when it's absolutely free!

As I mentioned in my previous post...I'm finally inspired, happy and absolutely loving life again and have started working on my first fiber and plastic piece in a long long time! I took quite a hiatus from these fiber pieces because they were connected to some bad energy from my past but I'm finally ready to turn over a new page and start fresh. So here it is in progress...
