Day 141 – One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so they say. My husband has a saying as well: “There’s good wood in there.” I hear this often as we drive by left-over broken furniture on the side of the road. He has quite a history of saving left-for-dead pieces and giving them new life (or leaving them in the basement indefinitely.) Sometimes, it drives me batty. Other times, it’s pretty amazing.
Our neighbour two doors down noticed that Stewart grabbed a crappy old desk she left out to rot a few weeks ago. So when she’s spotted him outside yesterday, she offered him a piece of furniture that she doesn’t have room for anymore.
The desk he grabbed a while back was ick. But this… I’m ok with this.
Day 142 – Simple, warm, strangely comforting.
