today is saturday salvage day…..i was going to take photos of my outings today, but my i turned on my camera…it said “battery exhausted” and then it showed a little photo of me….ha ha. SOOOO….
i took pics of stuff around the house. little odds and ends…abandoned and then rescued…..stuff some of you have seen before, but maybe with a new perspective. stuff i’ve salvaged over the years…..
before i show you photos, i have a funny story about my friend sally….i’m sure some of you can realate. i gave my friend sally a bag of stuff today. i had some bits of lace in the bag for her. she went to the grocery store and before she decided to shop, she opened the back to see a pice of fabric i put in there for her and she said a couple of small pieces of lace flew out of the bag and blew under her SUV. for those texans that understand this wind here, you will appreciate this…..
determined not to let the lace win, sally got a wooden hanger (because die hard yard sale freaks like we are have one of those in their vehicle at any given moment) from the back of her car. she bent down under the vehicle and fished that lace from under the car. i know she was worried that her lace might blow across the parking lot and wrap around some old man’s prothestic leg, but shame didn’t deter her…she defeated that lace!!! some onlookers watched her. i asked her why they didn’t come help her. they had no idea what she was trying to get. she could have dropped a pet or her glasses or a pie. i would have asked her if she needed help if i was cruisin to my car and i would have been the first person helping her drag that lace out. i get it. sally risked getting her ankles run over by another car had it parked in the space next to her, but how can one let good, vintage lace fly away? i would have done the same thing….and with style, grace, dignity and confidence. go sally….
okay…onto photos. i took photos of simple things…old pillows, jewels, boxes, tins, lamp parts, fabrics…..salvaged from yard sales, thrifting, junking and antique stores. hope you enjoy…..
that is about it. i know some are repeat photos, but what the heck….i had a hard time getting these uploaded tonite. i think i need to quit for the night. i didn’t watch SNL tonite cuz i was postin. now i’m sleepy and it’s time to crash. you all have a great weekend. thanks for stopping by……
